Lucky Penny

Sunday, April 29, 2007

Find a penny, pick it up
And all day, you'll have good luck.

So the saying goes. And that would be especially true if you were to find this particular penny.




It's the Lincoln Cents 1943 Copper Penny. Each one is very rare, the only year they were minted was 1943. Interestingly, they will not stick to a magnet, as will other pennies of that time period. How much is it worth?

A whopping $20,000.00 - $40,000.00 for circulated coins
$60,000.00 - $95,000.00 for uncirculated coins. WOW!

Other pennies that are worth more than a penny include the following:

Indian Cents
Rare: 1877, 1909;
Scarce: 1859-1879, 1908; 1859 - 1909
$0.50 - $3.00 circulated coins
$15.00 - $50.00 uncirculated coins




Lincoln Cents Steel w/Zinc Plating
Will stick to a magnet.
1943 is the only date
$0.05 - $0.10 circulated coins
$0.50 - $1.00 uncirculated coins



Wheat Penny
The date determines the worth - too many to list here.
$0.02 - $0.05 circulated coins
$0.05 - $0.50 uncirculated coins

Hey guys, it's the full moon today. If you have done any gypsy magic spells that need to be moved or removed on the full moon - today's the day.

Any time we find a penny, we pick it up if it is heads up. if it is tails up, we turn it over so it can be someone else's good luck. if we pick it up, I always look at the year. i take it as a 'psychic' alert if it is the birth year of anyone close. sometimes, i just think it is 'their' lucky penny. sometimes i even use someone's penny in spellwork for healing. (or in I Ching, for example...I always use three pennies of the person's birth year, or mine if I am doing it for me.)

I have tons of wheat pennies! I had heard they were worth at least 2 cents each but didn't know if it was true. I'll have to look through them and see if there are any 1943 ones.

In fact, I have several really old coins that might be worth "something" but never knew where to look them up or who to trust. Great - another project. Might be worthwhile, though, if I came across a treasure!!

Have you heard about the pennies from heaven - supposedly when you find a penny, it has been sent by an angel "heaven cent". There is a poem about it that I have somewhere. Ever since my mom died, my dad, Shari and I find pennies all the time in really strange places! The other day, Shari was sitting in school and one appeared on her knee out of nowhere! We will find pennies places where they literally just appeared out of nowhere! It's pretty neat!
