    Here is my CoinStar Surfing Log!
    AND, CoinTrackers has estimated the 1955 Wheat Penny value at an average of 15 cents, one in certified mint state (MS+) could be worth $8 (SEE: 1955 Wheat Penny).

    I thought it was 59....but looks like a legit 55. Damage on the 5 looked like 59 but that would still be a wheat though.

    I'm confused. Why do you think it's worth alot? If you think it's the big doubled die for that year it's not.

    ^^This.

    How would a damaged wheatie be worth anything more than one cent? Also why is this in the Coinstar section?

    That being said, I think it's a 1955 with some gouging to the 2nd 5.

    The only reason I think someone might believe a coin COULD BE higher than the face value would be collectable value.
