Type of coin = Penny
Year of coin = 1908
Mint = None
Condition = Light wear
comments = Indian head on one side and circle of wheat on the other side.
A:
You have an Indian head penny. These were struck between 1859-1909. The Indian head was replaced in late 1909 with the head
of Lincoln. Your penny was struck at the Philadelphia mint because of the absence of any mintmark. Almost every Indian head
penny was struck at Philadelphia with a few exceptions. 1908-s  (worth $70 in it's worst condition) and 1909-s (worth $550 in its
worst condition)
Unfortunately, you have a fairly common penny. Given the light wear I would estimate it at an Extremely Fine (EF-40)

I would estimate your coin at around $10

Type_of_coin = Lincoln Memorial Penny
Year_of_coin = 1988
Mint = S
Condition = Light wear
comments = The penny is a damaged clad. Upon closer inspection, I noticed what appears
to be an
O on Lincoln's chest. Also, the mint mark is very faint, but it looks like an S
A:
It appears you have a standard penny from 1988. I have done some research and have
found no distinctive die errors or misstrikes from that year, although it may be possible.
Given the condition of the coin I would say it happened after it was struck. As for the
weak mintmark, there is a market for these coins although collectors want them in
perfect condition.
I would appraise your penny at face value

Type of coin = steel penny
Year of coin = 1943
Condition = Near perfect
A:
You have a Zinc coated steel cent. These were only minted in 1943 due to a shortage of copper
during this crucial year of the war.
You did not indicate a mintmark and if there is no mark then it was struck at the Philadelphia
mint which is worth $0.20 in F-12 condition and $2.50 in MS-63 condition.
The Misstrike or error coin you want to look for in this year is the is from the Denver mint. Many
of these were struck with a double mint mark. These are worth $25 in F-12 condition and $150
in MS-63 condition
If your coin is from Philadelphia mint I would estimate it's worth around
$1.00
