The Lincoin memorial wasn't placed on pennies until 1959, the 150th
anniversary of Lincoln's birth.

Howdy-
  The Lincoln Memorial reverse design on the Lincoln cent did not appear
until 1959.  What you have is a "Wheat Ears" reverse design which was in
place from 1909-1958.  They are lovingly referred to as "Wheaties" by
coin collectors.  Unless you have an error or variety coin and depending
on the coin condition (grade) it's not worth much over face. I'll let
other contributors to r.c.c. correct me if I'm wrong on the value.
