    Not worth more than face value. Old doesn't always mean expensive. There were several billion of these made. It would have to be really exceptional condition to warrant the cost of grading. Not worth the effort. Spend it.

    Those were hoarded by collectors in huge numbers at the end of the great roll and bag craze of the early 1960's. Many are now making their way back into circulation as heirs discover them and quickly dump them back into circulation. Value is one cent.

    @Erikb... I will join the consensus.... Just an ordinary cent. Really nice pictures. Cheers, RickO

    Good to see you interested in the hobby. While there’s a lot of information available online if you want to continue with collecting I. Have a couple of suggestions.
    eBay is a good place to learn about what coins sell or sold for.
    The Redbook is your friend. Get one first, before you buy too many coins. Look through it and learn about coins that interest you.
    Finally, collect what you like 😀

    Welcome @Erikb to the forum. Can't melt it yet, but who knows. Please save this address for your modern coin varieties:
    http://varietyvista.com/ It's free and unless your coins match their photos it is less likely that you will have a variety. Your doubling is Machine Doubling and of little to no added value. It happens on most coins. If you are truly seeking knowledge regarding the mintiing process then go to this website for a little better indepth information:
    this will give you an understanding of the process and allow you to differentiate between what is Post Mint Damage and what can occur during the minting process. Good luck and keep at it. Learn, learn, learn.

    Put it in a copper bag if you have one if not start one and put all you copper cents in it. Have fun keep on looking you can’t find any thing if your not turning rocks over, Be safe it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

    Hoard the keys.
