    I have a 1944 penny with a number 8 underneath it. is it worth anything?

      I would need to please see a photo of this coin to verify, but it sounds like you have an altered, counterstamped 1944 Lincoln cent. Unless the origin of the stamp can be traced, such altered 1944 Lincoln cents are generally worth only 2 to 3 cents. Again, some counterstamped coins are actually worth more because they are collectible as what some might call "exonumia" coins (altered, coin or coin-like items), but generally only if we can determine the origin of the stamp, which came from a private individual or company outside of the Mint.

      I'd say to hang onto the coin...

      Thank you for your question,
      Josh
