    This is the world coin forum not the us coin forum

    That coin has a value of 3 cents

    Almost universally, cents minted in Philadelphia do NOT have the P mint mark.

    You have a very common cent.

    Difference between what?

    It’s a 1942 P Lincoln Cent.

    They are very common even in good condition. Yours is about VF.

    **None **of the Wheat cents from the Philadelphia mint have a mintmark until you get into the Memorials.

    It is a 1942 Philly cent. Cents w/o a mint mark are minted in the Philadelphia Min. The only cent to ever Have a "P" was minted in 2017.
