This box was full of Wheaties (15) and a nice 1920. Best of the box was the 2009 Formative Years WDDR-043.

weigh those 2009s if they weigh 3.1 grams-2.99 grams they are satin cents with a value of about 11 dollars a piece if they weigh 2.5-2.67 grams they are worth one cent. If your wheat pennies are 1909-1939 and have a full wheat stalks on reverse and are not well worn even though they are brown put them in a case they are worth something to someone and check your Red Book for values by grade. I would recommend getting a mega red or deluxe big book edition to grade your coins using a loop to know the value. If your wheat cents are 1940-1958 then roll them by year and try not to jostle them so they keep there grade for collectors in the future to put into cases and collect. If you find red cent wheat cents and they have full wheat stocks on the reverse those deserve a case because average buying price on red Wheat cent not to include cleaned wheat cents is going up every year.

Pigeonman333rd,
Ignore values in the Red Book and look here to learn grading:https://www.PCGS.com/photograde/
For values check eBay sold values and here:http://m.numismedia.com/rarecoinprices.htm

Those 2009 Satin cents, are they P & D minted? Are these error types and should have been minted in zinc?

2009 copper satin cents come in a proof set I just happen to have bought the pennies only and one proof set the pennies are cut from the set still in the mint cases just taped sides for .36 cents a piece and 1.99 an 8 coin set. They are rare but only worth by ebay prices 14.99 a set including the s mint marks which I only have one set of 4 coins. I have well over 400 coins p/d but originally purchased 4000 but relatives sold them to put down payments on new cars which was unwise in my opinion because in 100 years they could be worth 100 dollars. certified proof 69's are worth 11 dollars now so not much value as mine are about proof 64-65. None are perfect and none have bull luster they look satiny. My guess is the coins in the box are circulated cents which I collect through coin roll hunting but I keep them by roll. In the 1990's their were still unc wheat cents from the 1940's and fifties so I keep them in rolls but coin shops pay 2 cents a piece for them so I never sell them here are a few pix of a roll I knocked over and rather then handle them I gloved up picked them up and put them in cases. Keep in mind I use the Red Book to buy coins but roll finds were and still are one cent value.So what do you think of these old roll finds? Do people really buy this junk? They are not rare but I have even more from a unc box I bought of wheat cents for 1000 dollars to search for die varieties which I cherish but the regular unc's I put in rolls. I tried to post full pages in photos but this site doesn't except the images so I will post one as an example. Ok here we go here's one of two pages. So my point is don't you think you should roll those box pennies due to their value or has something changed since the 1990's? I checked that website that was posted for ebay sales and I don't see any but I will keep checking until I see what you are talking about.

Here' s what 2009 copper satin cents look like. I got about 400 of them used to have about 4000 but I'm to generous.


The best deal on these I got was 1.99 a 8 coin set and .36 cents a piece in rolls. I would show you the reverses but they are the same for reverses on the 2009 zinc circulation strikes the main difference these are 3.1gram-2.99gram copper cents and they are low mintage 784,614 per coin but you got to collect all 12 p/d and s

And I felt bad for having two sets of the 2009 proof cents.

My favorite hoard has got to be my flying eagles. Don't feel bad just trade and upgrade your way to the top! I don't own an 1856 Flying Eagle cent but I hope to someday. I don't own a 1933 Stgauden's double eagle but I hope to some day. I don't own a 1943 bronze cent but I hope to some day. The list goes on and on. Happy Coin Roll Hunting!
