LINCOLN WHEAT CENT MINTAGE

Lincoln Wheat Cent Values

The term Lincoln Wheat Cent refers to the design used on the reverse of the Lincoln Cents from 1909-1958. Mostly all Wheat cents are very common, and were produced in the millions and even billions. Common wheat cents are not worth that much. Some common Wheat cents in high grades of MS66 and higher can be bought and sold for under $100 dollars. Lower grades expect values under $1. There are a few key dates such as the 1909-S, 1909-S V.D.B. (The designers initials that appear at the bottom of the reverse), 1914-D, 1931-S, and the 1922-D with no mint mark below the date. The premium price for key date Lincoln Wheat Cents is for popularity rather than being truly rare.
