Default Old coin I received today

Getting my daily gatorade from the store this morning. I get my change back to find a 1919 wheat penny. Any monetary value to this piece?


Thanks

Considering copper sells for 16.56 pound and old Copper Pennies are 154 of them to the pound
you see why people are melting down the money and selling for scrap just dont get caught !!

So a pure copper Penny is worth 10.3 cents at least
