I'm just trying to figure out if this penny is worth anything? I'm new to this hobby. The other penny in the pic is just for reference.


And where do you sell these coins? Is eBay the best place?

Your comparing a 1950 coin to a 2005 coin.
The master die was changed during that time.
You have to compare coins of the same year.
Also your 1950 has what is called a ridge ring caused by Die Deterioration
and is also a Misaligned Die

Actually the 1950' dies could have worn, or the master hub was different that they master hub design of today. All coins that year have the devices in the same places, but die wear will make some devices move towards/into the rim. You have to compare the coins from the same years to see what is normal, not 71 years different designs.

Not certain which coin you were asking about (multiple coins get confusing), so I'll assume it's the 1950-D? The master hub when this coin was minted was worn out, this "touching the rim" was fairly common back in the fifties/sixties, there is no premium for this, sorry. Your coin looks to be in decent shape but they aren't much in heavy demand, so it's worth maybe a buck at best? Yes, eBay is about the best place to sell, but again, your coin won't bring much I'm afraid.

Well, I may have NOT found a penny of value, but I did seem to have found a group of helpful people. You all deserve thanks. I'm amazed at how quickly the answers came in. Plus, they were educational.

You still found a nicer Wheat cent. A keeper in my Ziploc.

Some good explanatory comments have been posted so far.

To find out the actual worth of your coin pictured, you will need to search for similar coins up for sale on eBay.

Given the photo of the '50 D, it appears too that a mild instance of a misaligned die may be in play. Without seeing the coin's reverse, It's difficult to arrive at a sound estimated value. Going with the single image, I'd say 10-20 cents.
