    One cent. It says so right on the reverse. ;)

    Nothing more than face value.

    These come from the Philadelphia mint.

    It normal. Billions have been minted.

    Welcome. Stick around, read threads. When you look at more cents you notice that most do not have mint marks. You Tube videos and other inaccurate information in social media cause folk to chase wild geese all over this forum.

    Those shown are worth one cent each.

    Some cents without a mintmark can be quite valuable. If genuine, a 1922 cent without the mintmark or a 1943 copper cent with or without the mintmark can be quite valuable.

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.

    What everyone has managed to not explain is that cents minted in Philadelphia did not carry a mint mark. These are not errors, they are exactly as they were intended when struck.

    Other coin denominations are different. Quarters, for example, did not have mint marks for Philadelphia in the past, but now do. Starting in 1980, they all have mint marks including a P for Philadelphia.

    And, the 2017.

    To add to Perry's advice... buy yourself a volume or two of the Cherry Pickers Guide.

    All the work has been done for you.

    Pick a coin, enter it into the ebay search engine and look for the pick up points.

    The value is in the date. I believe the only cent to have the P mint marh is the 2017 cent. 2017 was the 225th anniversary of the US Mint.

    To answer the OP's question, most cents without a mint mark are worth the same, and in many cases less, than those with a mint mark.
