    A rainy day wheat!

    I decided to go out detecting today just in my yard because it was raining all day and finally stopped so there was some soft dirt. I got everything and went to outside of my fence. As I approached a large area of overgrown dirt I got a Zinc - $.10 target that was near so I decided to dig it. sticking out of the edge of the hole was a 1937 Wheaty. I haven't been able to go metal detecting since I first got my detector last year so this is my first wheat penny I've got from metal detecting. I have about a half-roll of them so I decided to clean it for a picture. Here is that Picture:Click image for larger version.

    I'm new to this, but what is special about a wheat penny? I don't know, really anything about them. I have read some threads about people finding them, but I don't know how much they are worth or anything

    Any Penny between 1909 and 1957 are known as wheat pennies because the back of them have the Word ONE CENT inside 2 wheat ears. The are worth more then there face value because you dont find many of them. And sometimes because of not many being minted like the 1909 S VDB.
