Greysheet & CPG® PRICE GUIDE

U.S. Coin Values: Lincoln Cents - Wheat Reverse.

About 1943-PDS (3 Coin Set) 1c

Sets of 1943 steel cents containing one example each of the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mint issues are popular offerings among coin collectors and non-collectors alike. There is a difference between the types of sets commonly sold to non-collectors versus those who are more diehard numismatists.

Sets marketed to coin collectors normally contain original-quality examples in lightly circulated or uncirculated condition. However, many of the sets sold via magazine or newspaper inserts to the general public contain so-called reprocessed cents, which are typically circulated examples that have been stripped of their original zinc coating and recoated. While reprocessed cents may appear new to the untrained eye, most collectors classify such pieces as altered and thus of little numismatic value. Most 1943 cents are common through the Gem Uncirculated grades, though they are tougher to find in grades above MS67.

Obverse: Bust of Abraham Lincoln framed by IN GOD WE TRUST on the top periphery. The word LIBERTY to the left of the portait and the date and mintmark (If any) postioned on the right side.

Reverse: Wheat ears flanking the words ONE CENT, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. The motto E PLURIBUS UNUM on the top perimeter.

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 prices listed in our database are intended to be used as an indication only. Users are strongly encouraged to seek multiple sources of pricing before making a final determination of value. CDN Publishing is not responsible for typographical or database-related errors. Your use of this site indicates full acceptance of these terms.
