I was going to say I've got extras of these wheat pennies: 1910, 1911, 1912, 1914, 1915, 1922, 1926, 1931. I also have extra's of 1859 and 1863 Indian heads. There are probably others but it would take me a while to look.

I appreciate your generosity but I'll have to pass. I was born at night, but it was not last night. Here are the approximate values for those coins:

Wheat Pennies:
1910S - $7.25
1911S - $20.00
1912S - $17.60
1914S - $14.70
1915S - $10.60
1922D - $23.00
1926S - $4.00
1931S - $42.20

Indian Heads:
1859 - $18.00
1863 - $9.00

I find it highly insulting for you to offer $2.18 plus shipping for coins that have an approximate value of $166.35. That would be the same as me asking for a high end card and offering $2.00.

that would be prices if they were really good condition

Rick, your first post you didn't mention anything about mint marks on the wheat pennies. .03 Cents for common wheat pennies is about the going rate and $1 for indian heads is a great price for common G coins.

I did mention it in my original post but thought better of posting anything and removed the post. In my haste I did not put the mint marks in.

All of these coins are in at least F (fine) condition and most are in VF (very fine) condition.

I feel some people, not all, are looking to take advantage of unknowledgeable people. I'm not sure what date this web page came out and the book I have for wheat pennies is packed away and probably outdated but this is what I found for those who may be unaware of wheat penny values. http://values.hobbizine.com/wheat-cents.html


EDIT: Since you are not looking to take advantage of anyone you should not have a problem with me posting the link. Also if anyone has a question about the value of a coin or stamp please PM me. I will give you the most recent price I have. I would hate to see someone sell a coin or a stamp for pennies when it is worth some money. I'm not looking to buy or sell anything, I just want to pass along information.

I guess I'm just a cynic and believe many people are dis-ingenuous. I cannot fathom why someone would waste their time for a penny that's worth about .03 without the hope of getting a rarer one from someone who does not know what their coin is worth.

I used to collect coins when I was a kid but I stopped. I do run across wheat pennies and indian heads from time to time. I will let you know if/when I see anything.

A cheap way to get pennies is to 'buy' rolls of them from the bank, credit union or stores. Stores you may only get a roll or two but the others can supply you with how much you want - especially if you order ahead. 1982 is a mix of some zinc and some copper, the easiest way to tell the difference is to drop them on a tile floor/counter. They sound so different. Anyway, 1981 and before are copper and actually worth keeping. I know that's not your goal but it's worth mentioning.
The reason I say that is b/c there are still a few indian head pennies in circulation and a lot of wheat pennies so if you want to sort you have a number of things to look for. ...plus, there are some errors... :D
