Ebay, Friends and My Pocket.

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

In the beginning of December 2005 I bought these dimes on eBay then I got this Mexican coin from a new friend and I found a Canadian penny in my change.

Also notice the holders they are made in two and three holes for the mintmarks of each year. If want to put the 1941, 1941D and 1941S in the same place you now can with these holders. They are sold everywhere they sell coin supplies.

Here's a decent place to buy these holders.
Brooklyn Gallery

Here's the stats...
1941-D 1942-D 1943-D 1944-D Mercury Dime Lot VF++......$2.79
Lot 8 Silver Roosevelt Dimes 1947 51 56 60 61 62 64 64 .... $3.27
Coin Supplies Saf-T-Flip Coin Holder 1.5x1.5w/card 25PK...$3.25
It was a total of $11.81 with shipping and handling.

As of today (2012 values) the Mercury dimes are worth.............. $10.66
the Roosevelt Dimes are............................................................. $21.30
and the Sat-T-Flips are ............................................................. $2.00
for a total of $33.99 so I earned $22.18 on my initial purchase. Okay so I'm not retiring but most of the times I lose money when I buy coins so any little that I make I will enjoy.

The Cinco Pesos is Mexican from 1948 it was free from a friend that also collects coins and is worth $29.00 (2012 value was $12.00 when I first got it in 2006).

The Canadian penny is from 1980 and only worth at most $0.10, yeah it's true most change finds are not worth a lot. It is the 5th 1980 Canadian cent I found in my change.

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

Hi! I have obtained a "1989 D" dime that has something embedded in it. It clearly shows on both sides and I was hoping you could give me an estimate on it.

If this is the guy from the other comment then...

Defective Planchet is the offical name

Bubbled plating---
These planchets have gases trapped between the core material and the plating.

Yours is not in great shape plus these aren't really big amongst collectors.

It is only about $2.00, I'd hang on to it because the error coin market goes up and down fast.

Man said...

$100 bill 1969 star note...
averages $155.00 in Very-Fine
averages $300.00 in Crisp-Uncirculated

The serial numbers D-* or I-* are the most sought after and worth extra.

The Canadian coins that you receive in your change are likely a direct result of my actions to introduce canadian coins to US circulation. =P

I live in Canada but work in the US, it's fun to drop off some canadian coins into US circulation, we have so many US coins in canadian circulation, I see that it's fair to do the same, at least you enjoy it!

I will occasionally put Thai coins into circulation, 1 baht, 2 baht coins, but only in tip jars as its not very obvious and they think they are nickels (which they sort of are 1 baht = 3 cents).

I also have a massive collection of foreign coins, also contained within a vault at my home. I hoard coins, mostly foreign, but I have boxes of rolls of every US and Canadian denomination. I also have mint bags of Thai coins stored away!

We should trade sometime!
