1940-1958 Wheat Cent 5,000-Count Bags
|Bank / ACH|
Each canvas bag of Wheat Pennies contains 5,000 coins, equating to a total face value of $50 (USD). These coins, minted during the 1940s and 1950s, are common relics from that era. On the obverse side, they display the profile of Abraham Lincoln, the first President of the United States, with engravings of "Liberty," "In God We Trust," and the date surrounding his image. Some coins also bear a mint mark on this side. The reverse side features the engravings "One Cent" and "United States of America," framed by wheat stalks, giving these coins their name.
For collectors interested in Lincoln cents, especially those assembling specific types or searching for later dates to complete their albums, these $50 face value bags are a valuable discovery.
Coins are mixed into bags at random. The dates, mints, and conditions will vary. Some bags may have a nice mixture and some bags may have vast majority of duplicate dates and mints.
