I have a bit over 500 "column bar" type DDR's on Lincoln Cents from about 1997 to 2008. Are there any value to these at all other than curiosity? There seem to be dozens of varieties of these, and seem very difficult to identify off of Wexler's or Coppercoins, and I don't have the time or patience to do that. Is there any point in trying to sell them, or should I just roll them up and take them to the bank? Thanks!

You might hop on the bay and check "sold" listings and see. I've been saving them for one of the Wexler attributors, who is doing a study on them. I just get a couple of rolls together and send them to him every so often, in my opinion, a dime a dozen but I have a hard time tossing them.


But I guess they are worth at least twelve cents a dozen.

You sound like me, great at finding things, but no patience for the follow-up.
If you do decide to dump them in the Bank, please mention where lol!

I've got hundreds too and I think most are unlisted.
Some big ones and many too minor to list.

I'd think that they should have some value for those people who try to collect every possible variety they can in order to have a true complete collection.

I have "lots" of them,so does coop. A lot of them are not attributed. As to value, more of a fun find than anything else.

I would certainly not dump them. I personally have around 700 of them. They are quite nice to find, but they don't have too much value to them. However, they are valuable/interesting enough to keep in my opinion.
