Even I'm Stumped

Do you have a coin/bill 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.

I recently bought one of those foreign coin lots where you get a pound of coins for ten bucks. I was able to identify all but one coin. Here it is.

0012

I figured it wasn't a true coin because both side are identical and it looks cheap. By cheap I mean the field is not smooth and the design isn't sharp.

I went through all my books, other websites and even posted in coin forums. All the information I got is that it is Japanese and the Japanese characters spell Western. Some believe it is a pachinko token.

In pachinko parlors people play these semi-gambling machines and win balls then use those to get token at slot machines or to trade for prizes.

As for value I don't know anyone who collects pachinko tokens. Also I still don't know if this a gaming token or something else. If I find out more I'll let you know.

If you have knowledge of this coin/token/medal please let me know.

I wanted to know how much is 5.00 bill made in 1934 worth.And one made in 1953 worth.

Man said...

$5.00 bill
1934 anywhere from $15.00 to $9,500.00 because that year has some very rare types.

1953 again anywhere from $10.00 to $2,500.00 because that year has some rare types.

I would need the serial numbers and front and back numbers and full date like so:
1934B
B73706585B
face number 212
back 345

I HAVE A 1996 100 DOLLAR BILL IN VERY CLOSE TO MINT CONDITION...SERIAL # IS AG70458***A
ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE BILL THE SEAL AND THE SERIAL NUMBER A SET LOW ENOUGH THAT THE SERAIL NUMBER TOUCHES THE 100 IN THE CORNER...ON THE LEFT SIDE THE SERIAL NUMBER IS COMPLETELY MISSING...ON THE BACK THERE IS A SERIAL NUMBER RUNNING DIAGONAL AND UPSIDE DOWN IN THE UPPER RIGHT HAND CONER ON THE BACK OF THE BILL...THE SERIAL NUMBER ON THE BACK APPEARS TO MATCH THE FRONT SERIAL NUMBER EXCEPT IT IS MISSING THE LAST NUMBER AND THE LETTER...THERE ARE NO FOLDS BENDS TEARS OR BENT CORNERS ON THIS BILL...PART OF THE FRON PRINTING OF THE BLACK INK LIGHTLY SHOWS THROUGH ON THE BACKSIDE...ANY IDEA HOW THESE ERRORS OCCURED AND ANY POSSIBLE VALUE WOULD BE APPRECIATED...I CAN SEND YOU A PHOTO BY EMAIL IF YOU LIKE...THANK YOU...

Man said...

1996 $100 BILl MINT CONDITION
SERIAL # IS AG70458***A

The front has what is known as a "3rd printing shifting ink error" it means that the notes were off center when the going through the last printing.

The back has an "overprint on the back" it happens when a sheet of notes is placed upside down in the press.

Together it is a "Multiple error note" this means in the condition you describe it starts at $1000.00. Getting it certified through a grading company like PCGS will raise its value.

ROY said...

THANK YOU MAN, I APPRECIATE THE INFO YOU GAVE ME....ITS SCARY HOW RIGHT YOU ARE AS I HAVE ALREADY RECEIVED AN OFFER OF EXACTLY $1000 FOR THIS BILL....I APPRECIATE THE HELP...ROY

Hello Man
My daughter was recently given an American Gold coin by grandfather.
A family heirloom. It is a 1858, two and a half dollar. It also has the "C" mint mark. VF to AU. My research has placed a high value on it. Looking for a second opinion.
He also has a few 1948 Canadian 50 cent pieces.
Thanks
Dana

Man said...

1858-C, $2.50 VF to AU.

The C is for Charlotte and it is a great coin a low mintage coin only 9,056 were made.
In very fine about $1,400.00
In almost uncirculated about $3,500.00

He also has a few 1948 Canadian 50 cent pieces.
In very fine about $70.00 each.
I've been trying to buy one for my Canadian collection but my limit is $50 and these keep going up in price.

Great coins.

The mintmark for this coin is located on the reverse below the wreath.

In crisp-uncirculated it is about $90.00.

Depending on how many folds and dirt yours is likely in the middle price range.

It should be a 1934-C note, it is about $12.00.

If the front corner number were 2028-2031 it would have been a $50.00 note because a new pattern was temporarily used.

Still a nice note.

I have several Canadian pennies with no date stamp. By the aging of the Queen of the back, they are obviously minted at different times.

Do they have value greater than face?

Thanks,

LM

Man said...

Canadian pennies with no date stamp.

This is common many Canadian coins have no-date on the front.
Still if it was an error it would be a minor one called struck through grease or faded dies. Little to no extra value.

I have a 1998, $5.00 Canadian bill that has some printing errors. The bill appears to have been over printed on the front with the desgin from the back and the back of the bill only has part of the the printing on it. The bill was caught at a bank before anyone actually used the bill and I understand that there was less than one page of these bills released in error. It has been preserved and is perfect condition. Any idea how much this bill may be worth?

Man said...

That one is tough since I've not seen a big market for Canadian error currency.
It would be around $200.00 to start, if certified.

2. Canadian 1867 Loonie

Man said...

Canadian 1954 hundred dollar bill
About $140.00 there are two varieties but both are worth about the same. One the looks like there is a "Devil's face" in her hair and one where the hair looks normal. The "Devil's face" is worth slightly more if it has the Beattie-Coyne signatures.

Canadian 1867 Loonie
I think you mean a 1867-1992 since there were no Loonies in the 1860s.
About $1.00

I have a 1953 $5 bill serial A 99970648 A the numbers on the front are m17, and on the back are 2318. I bought it on ebay for my uncle who was born in 1953. I paid a total of $10 for it (including insured shipping)... The bill is circulated, and shows signs of ware from the times, but has been placed in a protective sheet for the past 10 years or so... What would you estimate its worth to be?

Man said...

1953 $5 bill serial A 99970648 A

About $10.00 for that condition. This is the book value which means if anyone wants to replace that bill it would cost on average $10.
The buyer's price is about $5.50 meaning the if anyone were to sell this note they should expect to sell it for $5.50 add shipping and insurance it would be $10.

You did fine, you followed what all the books say to do.

I have a coin that is in a leather case that says AMERICAN REVOLUTION BICENTENNIAL 1776-1976. The coin itself has the Statue of Liberty on the front, and a bald eagle on the back, the desingers name is on the coin and it is F. Gasparo or Casparo,
I couldn't tell.

Man said...

AMERICAN REVOLUTION BICENTENNIAL 1776-1976. The coin itself has the Statue of Liberty on the front, and a bald eagle on the back, the desingers name is on the coin and it is F. Gasparo or Casparo,

Not a coin sounds like a medal made by the American Revolution Bicentennial Co. probably worth around $10.00 if silver. About $350 if gold although cheap ones made of non-silver and non-gold exist.

Not very collectible since it is not a real coin or medal. If it were a coin it would have a denomination.

Reo said...

How do I tell if it's silver or not?

Man said...

How do I tell if it's silver or not?

That is difficult with medal it may be 75% silver or just plated.

Weight would be the best guess. It should weigh exactly 1 ounce. The content of silver would be on the box. Silver also looks very different from nickel.

Below is a site that I think has your medal each is either silver, gold or bronze. Ignore their prices its overpriced.
LINK

Reo said...

I weighed it and it was an ounce, and the medal looks exactly like the silver medal on the site, but it could be silver plated.

Man said...

...but it could be silver plated.

At that point it doesn't change the value but if it was silver plated it would weigh less. I think it is solid silver.
The antique finish and any bronze with a silver-plating may be more valuable if it has the packaging. Without packaging it's hard to verify.

The corner numbers are plate numbers that identifies what plate was used to print the note. It is mostly for the government to keep track with the master plate.

Collectors started trying to match and collect them to see if some were rare or common.

These coins are often faked even in gold just beware more fakes exist then real coins.

That said their are more than 570 varieties of these coins so you would need an expert to tell you which you have but the average value for this type is $225.00.

Don't clean it as, it should be kept in a PVC-free sleeve made for holding bills.

In this condition it may not be worth grading but if you can afford to find an authorized PCGS dealer and find out if the ink can be removed and if they can grade it.

Sounds like either a cutting error or shrinkage due to steam and a rapid drying.

Either way it has no extra value. Although there is a company that does this on purpose ans sells them for $5 above face, novelty value.

This is a real ten cents coin from Hong Kong it is made of nickel-brass and should look copper color. They're worth about $0.10.

If you think it is not nickel-brass but real copper it might be an error but it needs to be weighed.

Hi,thans beforehand for all you do for people here.I happened upon an entire roll of silver quarters,dates range from 1943-1964,and all are in fantastic shape.First question: is there a certain date/mint combo that would be most valuable out of the years i have listed that i should search for?Second question:Would it be ok to clean these coins with a baking soda/water combo,or should i just leave them as is?Thanks again.

1943-1964,and all are in fantastic shape.

is there a certain date/mint combo that would be most valuable out of the years i have listed that i should search for?

The highest of the ones listed in extra-fine
1949 at $10.00
1943-S at $9.00
1943-D at $8.00
Most are common except for some errors none are above $100.00.

Would it be ok to clean these coins with a baking soda/water combo,or should i just leave them as is?
Leave them.

The safe way to use baking soda is
Baking soda in hot water and a hunk of aluminum.
Soak it without scrubbing and wait and add hot water and wait and it takes a long time but removes sulfur and tarnish safely.

Most cleaning involves just soaking in olive oil or something safe, never scrub.

Hi,
I'm looking for information on the value of 1934 $100.00 star note Cleveland serial number D00001119
it's definitely circulated condition has just a small piece of lower left hand corner missing and some staining just received in withdrawal from local bank, rural small town, believe bad economy is causing older residents to spend money they normally wouldn't.I know the Cleveland star note of that year has more value but how bad of condition can it be and still have value other then face? thank you for this service.

Man said...

1934 $100.00 star note Cleveland serial number D00001119*
it's definitely circulated condition has just a small piece of lower left hand corner missing


As long as the piece missing doesn't have any of the design missing(just white space) then it still is fair.
I would say it's good about $150.00.
These in very-fine average $350.

I'll just try to describe them as best I can in sections starting with the most interesting. The oldest one is nearly smooth but I can just make out the year 1869. On same side as the year there's a profile I can just make out that looks like the same figure I see on some pence pieces I have sitting with a shield and holding a branch but there's no trident or lion at the figure's feet from what I can tell, and I can just make out the EN of what I assume is part of PENCE. On the opposite side there's a profile of a woman facing the opposite way than Elizabeth II on newer pence pieces. On the bottom left edge I can make out VI then it smooths out. On the top left G: Top right BR then it smooths out. Bottom right D:

1869 Pence

This sounds like a Penny with Queen Victoria in poor condition.
It's about $3.00 probably less.

Then there's some pence pieces in a heptagonal shape. 50 New Pence 1969 and 1970. 10 New Pence 1970 and 1971. Also a coin I don't know where from says BP 5 Filler on back and front has a profile of a woman with braids and a crown and says Magyar Nepkoztarzasag 1970 and doesn't seem to be made of a very good metal.

Nice most people wouldn't be so accurate.

50 New Pence
1969 about $0.60
1970 about $0.60

10 New Pence
1970 about $0.10
1971 about $0.10

BP 5 Filler on back and front has a profile of a woman with braids and a crown and says Magyar Nepkoztarzasag 1970 and doesn't seem to be made of a very good metal.

This is 5 Filler from Hungary it's about $0.25 and it's made from aluminum that doesn't fair well over time.

Hello, third time I coming to you with a question. I came across a 1909 (no mint mark) wheat penny in my pocket change. As you would expect from pocket change it is beat up and worn quite a bit, back is worse than the front. Is this a good find and is there any value?

On the reverse at the bottom if the initials V.D.B. are visible it's about $5.00.
If not it's about $1.00.

Even the worst 1909 always carries a premium unless it was cleaned or altered.

Nice find by the way.

I know that in itself isn't worth much, but this one has had some gold applied to the wolf and QEII's portrait.

This was done outside the mint and does not necessarily lower the value.
It's about $9.00 mostly for the silver but it probably can never be graded.
