A picture would really help. Mint state 60 thru 68 U.S.A. cent runs from ~$10 to $60,000. So where in mint state it is real important. A Philadelphia, Denver or San Francisco mint? English penny?

Both are common dates, I'd reckon $0.10 to $0.30 for the 1944D cent and $0.20 to $0.40 for the 1919 cent, it's hard to make out the grade from the pictures so my assumption is that the coins are graded Fine.

 

The above values were obtained via google research and a coin collecting catalog.

No they are realy inverted.

 

To clarify what ccg said, in the US coins are minted inverted, that is when holding a coin like the cent straight up depending on which side your looking at you'd either see Lincoln's head as it will normally appear or a monument, Now when you turn the coin it's other side will look upside down....this is not an error and it is not unique.

Not really a simple thing to explain to someone. Since when you turn a coin over, it really depends on how you turn it over. If turned over from side to side, the reverse would appear to be upside down. If turned over from top to bottom, the reverse would appear to be right side up or normal looking. In many instances even then it is difficult for the average person to turn a coin over exactly enough to not see any rotations of the reverses.

This is why rotated reverses are seldom noticed by even collectors until they place them in an Album or 2x2 with the front side perfectly up and then turn it over and see it is now tilted.

Oddly enough although a rotated reverse is considered a Mint Error, seldom is there any value on them. And if you use the famous Red Book on coins go to pages 404 and up for error types and notice rotated reverses are not even mentioned.
