Can anyone tell me if these are worth anything???

I can't read the date on the penny in order to have any idea that it might be a rare issue. However, odds are it's just a heavily worn and corroded common wheat cent (metal's worth nearly 2c). The Kennedy is something like 38% silver, worth about as much as a worn silver quarter (neighborhood of $2.50). The Ike's worth face, assuming that isn't an S mint mark, in which case it's part silver (doesn't appear to be).

JKK did you miss that the Kennedy was a 1970 D?  Mint set only.  It would have a modest premium even though it has been mishandled.

I must have. Thanks for catching it.

My eyes aren't the best anymore but I thought that was a P.

I thought they did not mint a P that year.

Better pictures would have helped. Hard to give a value when you can't see the MM or the date.

Your right, they only minted coins from Denver and San Francisco in 1970.

And in any case--unless I somehow completely missed a major numismatic situation all growing up, or have forgotten it in in late middle age, which is entirely possible--Philadelphia coins carried no mint mark back then, so any visible mint mark would have to be a D or S. With a few well-known exceptions, that was the rule until...was it the Anthony dollars and thereafter? 79?

You're exactly correct, Jonathan.  The P mint mark first resurfaced on the 1979-P Anthony Dollars.  In 1980, the P was added to all denominations aside from the cent, who we all know wouldn't see its first and only P until 2017.
