The Goals and Objectives

I hope to help clarify coin and currency values for those less then amateur collectors. I am an amateur collector who won't spend hundreds of dollars for a coin. Most of my coins are out of pocket or given by friends and family. I suspect most people get them the same way and want to know accurate prices for these less than perfect coins.

When I trolled the web for prices they give these inflated prices but they are for near perfect examples. Only by buying the coin books can you get the lower values, few people do.

There are probably better websites but as I said I'm an amateur collector and haven't found many. I will review all these sites I put up so that you can collect with confidence.

Your input if you are more of an expert is welcomed or if you specifically want to know about a coin you have just ask in the comments section.

I will ask at the top of every post "Do you have a coin and want to find out its value?" In the $0.00 worth of comments/question just enter and ask something similar related to that post. I hope to be picture crazy. Thank you for visiting.
