The Wheat “No Mint Mark” 1937 Penny – $7,200

no mint mark penny

Most wheat pennies are only worth about 5 cents tops, but not all “wheat cents” are as special as the 1937 “no mark” penny. Sure, some 1937 wheat pennies are valued around only 35 cents, with those in mint condition worth maybe between four and five dollars. Luckily for avid collectors, there are a few exceptions, and this error coin is one of them.

This rare wheat penny is missing the Philadelphia “P” mint marking, upping its value significantly. Some have sold for $145, $200, $500, or more. In fact, one of these prized pennies in mint condition has fetched an astonishing $7,200. Now there’s a penny for your thoughts.
