2019 W Penny

Coins-United States | jsheng

The U.S. Mint recently revealed that they were selling 2019 W Pennies as a part of their 2019 proof set, which can be found here at their website:https://catalog.usmint.gov/proof-set-2019-19RG.html . These pennies produced from the West Point Mint are special because the West Point Mint is known for producing commemoratives, such as the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, or other special collector's coins, such as the American Eagles. They normally don't produce standard coinage such as pennies. Prior to 2019, West Point did not make pennies. They did, however, produce a commemorative 50th anniversary of the Roosevelt dime in 1996. In 2014, they produced a W Kennedy Half Dollar to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy half Dollar. In 2015, they produced more W dimes along with W dollars to commemorate the March of Dimes. This is the first time they are producing pennies.

1950 Wheat Penny

I just got this from a friend. I have not cased it yet, but will do so as soon as I can. This is my first wheat penny. If anyone can grade this just on the pictures, that'd be very helpful. Thanks for reading!
