If there are no listings above, there may be none of these wheat pennies available, or it could be a bug in the program. I recommend clicking over and searching for "1963 wheat penny" or something more specific. The variety of coins, paper money, and tokens being auctioned every day on eBay is amazing.
If you're wondering how much your Abraham Lincoln wheat cent is worth, i.e. the value of an American one-penny coin minted between 1909 and 1958, these eBay auctions are one of the best ways to get a true sense of the going prices. (For help judging the condition of your wheat penny, click here.)
To sell your 1963 wheat penny, you have two main options. The first is eBay or another online auction. Auctions have always been the best way to get the real value of your coins, without a coin dealer taking a cut. Selling on eBay (or eBay UK, eBay Canada, or eBay Australia) is easy. You just have to register, which is easy and painless.
The disadvantage of selling coins on eBay is that it can take some time, especially if you have more than one coin to sell. The fastest way to cash out is to sell to a coin dealer. One national dealer I know is Jake's Marketplace. They're good folks and they give fair prices. But you may prefer to find a local dealer.
By the way, before taking your collection to a dealer, you may want to get the most current and reliable price estimates for your coins. Invest the 10 bucks in this year's Black Book or Red Book Guide to U.S. Coin Values. They're both comprehensive, reliable sources for coin prices.
