Price Guide

Do you have a specific coin and want to find out its value? Leave a comment and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

Let me clarify I've been using the Red Book which has the average price that certain sellers have priced their coins. The Blue Book has the price that a seller is willing to pay for a coin. So using both books you get a good sense for what the average prices you can value your coin at whether you plan on selling your coins or buying them.
If you bring ten 1944 wheat cents to a dealer and you saw I listed them at ten cents in VF-20 grade don't expect to get $1.00. Circulated coins are usually grade harsher and dealers will vary in prices they buy coins at.

Here's an overview of what to expect on coin prices if you plan to sell.

Indian Head Cents:..1859-1909 $1.00
Wheat cents:...........1909-1958 $0.03
Memorial cents:......1959-2008 Unless uncirculated, face value.
Lincoln Commemorative cents: 2009 Face value.

5 cent pieces:

Buffalo nickels:........1913-1938 $0.50 Dateless buffaloes $0.25
Jefferson nickels:....1938- all but a very few dates go for close to face value in circulated conditions.

10 cent pieces:
Barber dimes:..........1892-1916 $3.00

what would the state quarters from 1999 - 2002 that are plated with gold be worth?

Man said...

Unfortunatly not much because they were gold plated coins were nade after they left the mint.
They lost all coin-collector value but as art or other pieces you may get $5.00 for each year.

I'll post more about it soon.

Man said...

Yes these are known as error coins.
There are 9 major errors.
Clipped Planchet
Multiple Strikes

Wrong Planchet

Some error bring no extra value
most bring a few dollars
and there are plenty that bring hundreds upto thousands.

If you have an error either post a picture some where and drop a link
or
describe in great detail what you have and I may help.

My son found a 1958 D wheat penny that has multiple strikes on the face side and the back looks like it was hit also. Shape is a little off do to one of the strikes. Any idea on value or history of his new find?

This would be a Multiple Strike Error. If real it would be worth about $200.00 to start.

There are lots of fakes of this type of error. You need to get a good picture of both sides.
Here is a nice image of one. LINK.
Depending on the picture an expert like Fred Weinberg or others could tell you an exact value.
