Older is Better

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.

Yes I have found old coins in my change and new foreign coins but these truly older coins are nearly impossible to find unless you buy them or dig them up while metal detecting.

From top to bottom left then bottom right; 2004 Canadian penny, 1907 US penny, 1914D dime, 1854 quarter, and 1914S dime.

febnew
febnew2

Here are the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent/Canada
Year: 2004
Mintage: 643,317,000
Metal: Copper plated zinc
Value: $0.10 in MS-60

Type/Country: 1 Cent/United States of America
Year: 1907
Mintage: 108,137,143
Metal: 95% copper, 5% tin and zinc
Value: $2.00 in G-4(good) although this one has some PVC damage

Type/Country: 10 Cents/United States of America
Year: 1914D
Mintage: 11,908,000
Metal: 90% silver, 10% copper
Value: $2.75 in G-4

Type/Country: 25 Cents/United States of America
Year: 1854
Mintage: 12,380,000
Metal: 90% silver, 10% copper
Value: $35.00 in F-12(fine) the word LIBERTY is complete but weak.

Type/Country: 10 Cents/United States of America
Year: 1914S
Mintage: 2,100,000
Metal: 90% silver, 10% copper
Value: $3.00 in G-4

As you can tell even worn and dirty older coins have more value while the newer ones are not worth as much initially. Granted 50 years from now maybe that Canadian will be a collectors item it is also a safe bet that the older US coins will still retain a premium value.

Still none of these will pay your rent.

I have a mint condition 1904 U.S. wheat penny. How much is it worth?

Anonymous said...

Can you tell me the approximate value of the following coins?

1885 Morgan Dollar
1922 Peace Dollar
1974 Eisenhower Dollar
2002 1oz Silver Eagle Dolar

I am unable to locate on the coins where they were minted. Does the location of the mint have an effect on the value of the coin?

Man said...

mint condition 1904 U.S. wheat penny

It is $35.00 in mint which is defined by having no trace of wear and only light blemishes.


Can you tell me the approximate value of the following coins?Does the location of the mint have an effect on the value of the coin?

1885 Morgan Dollar--Mintmark is located on the reverse below the wreath either blank($18.00), CC($475.00), O($18.00), or S($35.00).

1922 Peace Dollar--Mintmark is located on the reverse below the ONE either blank($12.00), D($12.00), or S($13.00).

HI! I have five $2.00 bills, all new, in consecutive numbers. Series 1976. All have a U.S. 13 cent Postal Service Commercial Aviation postage stamp on each bill in the upper right hand corner. The bills are all post marked with the date April 13, 1976 noting the post office where they were obtained.

Man said...

five $2.00 bills with dated stamps

These are common and worth only $2.00-$2.50 each.

If they were not stamped they would have a value of $6.00 or more depending on the serial number.

British one penny 1901
about one pound in England or $1.00 US in very fine condition.

Before people say the currency conversion is wrong I'm saying collectors value in the UK or the US.

of course currently 1 US dollar is 0.51 British cents.

No need for a PDF I probably wouldn't open it. I would prefer a picture hosted by http://imageshack.us/

But what you have is an offset printing worth about $50.00.

Man said...

6 consecutive $10 bills 1995 series C, in excellent condition! Is it worth more than $60?

Not really, it maybe 35 years before those bills can fetch a premium. That said some collectors get them certified at PCGS.com for about $30 they will give it a grade from 1-70. A high grade note will sell for more.

How many U.S. silver dimes equal one ounce?
Last year the all copper us penny was made?

Man said...

How many U.S. silver dimes equal one ounce?
13 dimes would weigh 1 ounce.
14 dimes would make 1 ounce of silver.

Last year the all copper us penny was made?
1982, although in the middle of 1982 they were changed to copper-plated zinc. So from 1981 or earlier they are guaranteed copper(except 1943).

jackie said...

I have pockets full of Canadian coins. It is funny to think that they are worth more in your country than in their native home land.
But then again (as my father-in law always says) 'there's nothing stranger than people"

Man said...

Yes Jackie we are strange.
I've personally gone through hundreds of Canadian cents just to find one in mint condition that goes for $0.50.

Canadian mints make great coins plus they make colorized coins. Those sell for 5 times face value over here.

If you ever sell your pocket change on eBay I probably would by it for three times face value.

Man said...

1956 Canadian penny in fine condition is about $0.03 - $0.05. Unfortunately the price of copper is going down again so it would be on the lower end.

In mint condition is it goes for $0.50 and that is when it is really collectible.

Man said...

1903 20 Francs coin Very good condition

It is gold, 90% gold to be exact. .1867 AGW.

The value is about $130.00 mostly for the gold because it does not have a collector premium until it is uncirculated. If it is uncirculated add $40.00 to the value.

If it has lots of detail and looks very sharp it may be worth more. Lack of color or luster is not that big deal in dug up coins.

Man said...

1943 wheat penny, but it is a weird color

1943 cents are Zinc-Coated Steel and the color should be gray but they often get very ugly. Only if it was copper would it be rare.

1943 cent is about $0.30 in fine.
The best way to find out if it rare is weigh it, it should weigh 2.70 grams.

P.S. Please email me your response at Glamorousheart@aol.com.

Man said...

Erin sounds nice but I'm always wary of charities.

Here is some advice for you and others who collect coins for charity:

1. Find a coin shop or collector in your area that will buy them from you at 3 times face.

2. Join a coin forum and make a deal with them.

3. Hold an auction after the collection and just sell the entire bag of old coins to the highest bidder.

4. Do number 3 on eBay.

HI, I have a 1941 Australian sixpence, and a 1945 Australian half penny both are in fair condition, I also have these interesting tokens with holes in the middle of them they are,

1 - ONE FIFTH CENT SERIES A-35
COLORADO SALES TAX.

1 - PUBLIC WELFARE TAX TOKEN
LOUISIANA

1 - CONSUMER'S TAX TOKEN OKLAHOMA
FOR OLD AGE ASSISTANCE

The last token I have does not have a hole in the middle. The front has picture of a cactus and reads "Arizona State Tax Commission"
The back reads, "TO MAKE CHANGE FOR CORRECT SALES TAX." In the middle the is a number 5.

Any information is appreciated.

Man said...

1941 Australian sixpence about $1.25 it is silver.

1945 Australian half penny about $0.75 it is bronze.

These tax tokens were issued from 1921-1939 in only twelve states to deal with odd sales tax.
Most were made in Aluminum and are fairly common.

ONE FIFTH CENT SERIES A-35
COLORADO SALES TAX
About $1.00

PUBLIC WELFARE TAX TOKEN
LOUISIANA...
There are 2 versions made in 1936-1939
1 mil of which 49,000,000 were minted.
5 mil of which 8,000,000 were minted.
Only 7 million were cashed in by 1941 so the rest are in circulation making there value about $0.50.

CONSUMER'S TAX TOKEN OKLAHOMA
FOR OLD AGE ASSISTANCE
About $1.00.

"Arizona State Tax Commission"
"TO MAKE CHANGE FOR CORRECT SALES TAX." number 5.
This one should be copper and is worth about $1.00.


Because each town in each state made there own sales tax tokens some varieties exist. A token collecting club in your area might pay for rare ones but the ones you listed are pretty common.

Still they are great tokens from the great depression. Very historical.

malvert said...

My girlfriend's sister has a 1945 Lady Liberty 50 cent piece and the lady is kneeling. She says it is in mint condition although Ive never seen it. Got a rough idea what its worth?

Man said...

1945 50 cent in mint

It would be about $35.00.

If it's in almost mint condition it would be about $12.00 this would have more wear around the knee and head.

malvert said...

Does it make any difference that Liberty is kneeling? I think someone told her that it made it more valuable. Thanks for you help.

malvert said...

Im sorry sir, I think what she is referring to is an 1845 Liberty because she is sitting and a person could think she was kneeling. Does that make more sense. I think she told me the wrong date.

Man said...

The 1945 Liberty half has a woman walking with the knees bent as she were in motion.

The 1845 Liberty half has a woman seated knees bent visible through her dress, she is next to a shield.

The mintmark for the 1845 is located below the eagle on the reverse.

1845 no mintmark is about $900.00 in mint.

1845-O is about $675.00 in mint.

1845-O no drapery directly below her left elbow is about $1250.00 in mint.

Of course prices drop to 1/3 listed if it is less than mint state.

1925 and the girl has a pointy crown and the eagles wings aren't open
This is a Peace dollar worth about $12.00.

1 dollar bill from 1935 with blue seal its serial code is Q96608509B
It should be a 1935-A worth about $3.00

whats a star note?
It is a note that has a star * in place of a letter in the serial number. They are made as replacement notes when the government prints bills and some are accidentally misprinted or damaged.
Instead of replacing the exact same notes they just issue star notes when they are needed.


Mintmarks for the Morgan are located under the wreath either blank, D, or S.

Mintmarks for the Peace are located under the word ONE either blank or S.

Any mintmark for these two coins would add about $5.00 to the price listed.

Ok, this is the Winged liberty or Mercury dime in fine it is about $1.40.

Any mintmark would be located on the reverse below the branch after the word ONE.

Anonymous said...

do mintmarks raise the value. Because i have 6 S mintmarked 6 D mintmarked and 12 blank ones. They all are in the years 1937 to 1945. If i was going to sell them all together what should i sell them for? thanks so much!!!

Man said...

Dimes from 1937 to 1945.
6 S mintmarks,6 D mintmarks,12 blank ones

For Mercury dimes not so much in lower grades. The would be sold at about $1.25 regardless of mintmark in fine grades.

As you reach mint-state-65(near perfect) the difference is usually $5-$10 more if they have a mintmark.

For most US coins the S mintmark is worth the most, followed by D and then blank or P.

Of course there other mintmarks throughout the years like CC, O, W, and C but those are for older coin or non-circulating types.

Man said...

Unless you have an error dime the most valuable of that time period is the 1938D at $2.00 in fine.

Anonymous said...

so if i sell them all as a group how much would i sell them for. if seperately what should i sell for one S marked, one d marked, and one blank mark.

Could you please tell me the value of these 3 coins:

2 Franc Belgian coin dated 1866
5 Franc French coin dated 1867
1 Franc French coin dated 1919

Thank you

Man said...

Depends on grade but as a group $32.00.

Again depends on the coin but $1.25 should be fine.

Also it depends where your selling them.

A dealer will take only $0.80 for each no matter what.
Ebay you should start at $0.01 assuming you have a good history.
Anywhere else if you wanted to buy these coins it would cost $1.25 in fine grade.

Man said...

2 Franc Belgian coin dated 1866 about $6.00

5 Franc French coin dated 1867 about $9.00

1 Franc French coin dated 1919 about $1.50

Hi
I have three quarters in good condition (little bit of tarnishing, but full details and no mint flaws). They are Canadian quarters from the years 1950, 1955 and 1960.

What are their values?
Please email: miss_october30@yahoo.ca

I have several very old coins dating back to 1866 from all over the world left from my grandfather. How do I get the values? For example 5 cents from canada dated 1881. Helvetica 1fr. dated 1887 and the other 5fr dated 1931. I also have this coin dated 1963 R, the front says President-First Lady- John -Jacqueline-Kennedy Picture of both of them on the front, on the back there is a shield and looks like a globe. Thanks for any help.

My Grandma gave me some coins just wondering what they are and how much they might be worth. One Georgivs VI half crown dated 1948, one Georgivs V half crown dated 1928, two Georgivs V one florin date 1921 and 1924 and one Georgivs VI shilling date 1946, Any help would be great thanks.

Man said...

5 cents from canada dated 1881
About $7.00


Swiss 1fr. 1887
About $4.00

Swiss 5fr 1931
About $5.00
but there is a variety that has edge lettering starting at 10 o'clock worth about $500.00 more

Swiss token 1963 R, the front says President-First Lady- John -Jacqueline-Kennedy
About $25.00 because of the silver.

Your coins are very difficult to identify because they are older then what I usually collect, also the ones you mention have very valuable varieties.

Try a coin forum PCGS has a good one they can either help you directly or find an honest dealer in your area.

Most books will be useless for your tokens. So try a good library.

Good luck. It will be tough.

8)Netherlands 1 Gulden 1982 about $0.75

9)United States of America Louisiana purchase 1803 five cents dated 2004 only $0.05 they are common.

10)1/2 franc 1976 I'll assume it is French about $0.15

Get some coin books I've posted about a few if you want to see which would be best.
Consider getting a real cheap and older World Coin book if the kids like it then investing in a newer one.

Some website have good info but better is a coin forum and they usually are respectful and accept Young Numismatic(kid collectors).

You are bound to stumble upon medals, tokens and other items that won't be found in many books or websites. A coin forum is a good place to post pictures for help.

Also never clean the coins. They may not be valuable but cleaning them makes them worthless.

By the way your description were great.

kissykrissy said...

Thanks for the information, I would like to know how to store the coins right now they are in a bag, my boys are quite young and like I said I am starting to collect for them, thanks again.

Man said...

For coins like these it is fine to keep them in an envelope.
They sell little cardboard coin holders called 2x2" Cardboard Coin Holders for 100 it is about $6.00. You can write on them and label them.

Cardboard boxes, tins or jars are fine for lower value coins. A felt lined box is also fine.

Avoid plastic, glass, wood and anything that contains PVC. High humidity is also bad.

If you keep them in a tin or other box in long-time storage just check every few months. Toning is not that bad but if green(verdigris) starts growing quickly change containers and separate the affected coins.

Your silver may turn black after a few years but that's fine, those little silica packages found in shoe boxes will help control humidity.

I bought a 1997 proof (RCM)Canadian 1oz .9999 gold coin that has a Royal Canadian Mounted Police on the back and Queen Elizabeth II on the front. It has a $50 value stamped on it. There is also a U.S.$310 buy back guarantee until Jan. 1st, 2000 on the front. I can't find anything on this coin. I heard rumor that the coin did not sell well and most were melted down. I have pictures, if that would help. Any information would help.

This is the 125th Anniversary of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police coin. The $310 is not a buy back but just a guarantee that this coin was worth that amount by the end of 2000. In case gold prices fell for the true millennium.

Only 12,913 were sold which is low, I guess no one feared the Y2K bug.It came with a black card folder.

Designer: Ago Aarand
Engraver: Stan Witten
Metal: .9999 Gold
Weight: 31.15grams, 1 oz.
Diameter: 30mm
Thickness: 3.25mm
Edge: Plain, 10 sided
Bullion coin with a brilliant relief.

Although it is a low mintage coin it is only at gold value which as of today is about $806.00 if it is in perfect condition then it may be $1400.00.

It is not the lowest minted there are some Canadian gold coins that had only 3,890.

Values in very-fine condition.
Very-fine is considered no scratches, only some wear, some luster, and all details very sharp.

New Zealand One Florin coin-
1933 about $20.00
1961 about $3.00
1964 about $2.00
1965 about $0.50

New Zealand one shilling coin-1947
About $12.00

New Zealand Sixpence coin-1947
About $10.00

New Zealand Sixpence coin-1961
About $0.15

The value goes down a lot in fine condition which is dull and more circulated. Divide the values by ten if this is the case.

At the time it was $100 (100 Pesos) but this coin has been discontinued and is now not legal tender. So you can not use it in Mexico.

Any Mexican coin after 1992 is legal all others are now just collectors items.

This one has a value of about $0.30 in very-fine condition.

The obverse is the head of Italia.

There are a few that are worth more then a dollar, most are not.

Any denomination over 1 peso is worth a second look.

Also if the coin is uncirculated, with luster and sharp details it will be worth more.

It should be safe to water clean and dab dry with a fine cloth, no rubbing.

If graded it would read Environmental Damage and lose value but I'll guess it as fine it's about $20.00 probably less if it has pits.

I have several aluminum Oklahoma 1 mil consumer tax tokens. Somewhere I read that tax tokens were in use in Oklahoma in the 1960's. I know at some point during WWII the aluminum was replaced with cardboard. Can you tell me for sure when they changed over and also when the entire mil system was discontinued?

Oklahoma 1 mil consumer tax tokens...Can you tell me for sure when they changed over and also when the entire mil system was discontinued?

They were first issued on January 1, 1936 and were discontinued on September 30, 1961.

Know pinning down the change over date is hard I think it was March 31, 1941. There were 19 different tax tokens and I'm not sure if some were changed first or was it all at once.

Since both fiber and cardboard examples exist I don't know when the issued.

I have an unusual penny, most likely a fake. Years (20) ago, I worked at a fast food place to be near my father (Alzheimer's). A gentleman came in and gave me a silver colored penny. I took it to a store in town who told me silver pennies weren't made in the year stamped on it. I have since discovered that in 1974, the stamped year, there were several aluminum pennies made that were not put into circulation. While I highly doubt this is one of them, still, for my own curiosity, I would like to test to see what it is made of to be sure. I get differing weights on websites, but it does correspond to the weight on at least one of them. However, not being a chemist, I cannot tell if it is real. And since the Secret Service is likely to confiscate it if it indeed is authentic, I would like to do this on my own. I really don't need men in suits with sunglasses showing up at my door if there really isn't a cause for it. Have any ideas?

Here is a picture of a genuine Aluminum cent Al Cent

Yes the secret service will pay you a visit but it is also true that this coin has been faked a lot.

I know they should weigh 0.93 grams. It is rumored that some people working at Alcoa had a few of the missing coins.

Another possibility is that yours is a off-metal error it could be from a silver dime or an aluminum cent from a different country.

Sri Lanka is the most likely suspect since the U.S. made coins for them at 1.02 grams of Al.

Either way only 2 exist one from the Toven family and another from the Smithsonian. The SS did investigate the Toven coin but have not confiscated it.

Any test to prove the metal content must be done by a professional and only ICG can do this.

The key are as follow...
Weight
Diameter
Metal Content
Microscopic metal image analysis

Access to a lab would be great.
