How much are my U.S. 1936 Satin with red surfaces penny worth?

About 1936 Satin RD Lincoln Cents - Wheat Reverse (Proof)

The first regular-issue proof Lincoln cents in 20 years, the 1936 satin proofs bear a similar resemblance to the matte proofs that preceded this piece a generation earlier. However, collectors of the 1930s weren?t particularly fond of the satin finish, which bears little difference in outward appearance from nice uncirculated business-strikes. Officials at the US Mint paid heed to the numismatic outcry and produced 1936 pennies with brilliant finishes, leaving the satin proofs as the rarer of the two types. Given a relatively low survival rate of perhaps 500 to 600 pieces, many of these satin-finish proofs were presumably spent as money.

About CDN Prices

All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.

CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.

Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.

Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.

CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.

Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.

The values listed are only indications. CDN Publishing, LLC does not buy or sell collectibles.
