Spring Madness

Do you have any coins or currencies and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Nothing special but since I had a free minute here is what I found.

MAD Money

I got no idea where this bank stamp was from but it fit my mood. It may not even be a real bank stamp but it did make me smile.

Blah, blah, blah...1944 wheat cent...yada, yada, yada...21 times.



Here's the stat...
Year: 1944
Mintage: 1,435,400,000
Metal: 95% copper 5% zinc
Value: G-4 $0.02 or VF-20 $0.10 or EF-40 $0.20

Sure this is coin blog but feel free to guess what plant is underneath the common wheatie.

Do you have a coin or currency 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.

An African Violet leaf?

Man said...

That is scary accurate. African violet is correct.

That little plant started blooming 2 weeks ago.

Just $2.00 that one is in no good shape.

1925 French 2Fr coin
Unfortunately it looks like it may have been cleaned so about $0.50, even if not cleaned it looks about XF so about $4.00.

RickR said...

Thank you. I don't know if it has been cleaned or not. Just been sitting in a box with a bunch of other old coins since my father gave them to me 30 years ago.

Thanks again.

Then it probably was improperly stored, sometimes contact with other metals affects coins.
To prevent further degradation place it in a coin safe holder, they are relatively cheap.

Water drops on your 1-cent 1944 coin!!! ;-)

Water is fine as long as it is dabbed clean. Plus the fact I didn't bury this one in the dirt is good enough.

I have 2 $100 bills I'd like to know the value of.
One is a 1929 Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland D00261937A with a D after the serial number. It has a red seal on the front and says "National Currency" at the top. The other is a 1977 $100 bill B00084490 with a star after the serial number Federal Reserve Bank of New York
Thanks!

Christopher said...

What kind of coin books do you use to identify the coins? by the way great blog. Thanks

Chri$topher said...

sorry to bug you again but what do you do mostly with your coins do you sell, keep, or what?

Pedro said...

hey...i have a 500 dollar bill from THE REPUBLIC OF TEXAS with a date of 1840 and i wanted to know how much its worth??thanks

Man said...

$100 bill 1929 Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland D00261937A with a D after the serial number. It has a red seal on the front and says "National Currency" at the top.
About $140.00 in very-fine, it's a brown seal.

1977 $100 bill B00084490*
About $120.00 in very-fine

Man said...

What kind of coin books do you use to identify the coins?
All kinds...it is easier to check the Books link on the right side of this blog.

what do you do mostly with your coins do you sell, keep, or what?
I keep tem all since they are generally too low value to sell.
If I ever find a coin or bill worth more than $100 I would sell it immediately.

Man said...

500 dollar bill from THE REPUBLIC OF TEXAS with a date of 1840

$1,500 in fine, the last auction I saw was for an ungraded Good that sold for about $500.00.

That said many fakes and replicas exist, only a specialty dealer can tell in person.

Chri$topher said...

Hello its me again, I have just completed a coin collection of at least ms-60 US pennies 2008---1959. How much do you think I could get for this? thank you

Man said...

This is real it is common and has no extra value.

Man said...

Assuming you have all the design varieties, not including the errors or S mints.

It would be about $12.00.

Serial said...

I might be offtopic but I'm getting pretty desperate. I have a 1915 coin wich reads: "victoria dei gra britt regina fid def ind imp" and shows a female portrait (queen victoria I supose). On the flipside it has a man on a horse fighting what seems like a dragon. Underneath him it reads 1915 BR, to he's left side it reads Fetish and to his right 750/000.
I've done some research and can only find similar coins but from earlier years and with different inscriptions. Any clue?

This sounds like a sovereign that has either been altered or is a fake or souvenir.
A picture may clarify if you decide to track it down online.

Hi, I have a $20 bill from 1977 with the serial numbers and seal printed on the back (you can see a picture of it here on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130396526575&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT). This came from an ATM machine in 1977, and has been in a safe ever since. Am I right to describe this as uncirculated? I wish I had found your website sooner. . .

Man said...

$20 bill from 1977 with the serial numbers and seal printed on the back

It looks crisp-uncirculated but maybe not choice but that is ok if you make it clear it is ungraded.

Very nice Overprint on the Back error it averages about $500.00 I hope the auction goes well, good luck.

Man said...

1974 dime that seems to be misprinted there are no ridges around it and the words "in god we trust" aren't fully there alSo there is like a raised edge around it.

Sounds like damage ad if someone smoothed the edge, no extra value.

I have a Series 1981A $100 bill, the serial number ends in a G. I am being told it is counterfeit as it should end in an A. Do you know if this is a misprint? Thanks!

Man said...

Series 1981A $100 bill, the serial number ends in a G. I am being told it is counterfeit as it should end in an A.

They are right.

All $100 1981A bills end with either A or *.
$100 bills were often counterfeit and this one may pass a pen test as they were often made from bleached $1 bills.

After receiving a $10 bill from a register, I attempted to make a purchase with it and it was marked as forged dollar. After taking the money to the police and going through that process, I was promptly handed back the bill because it wasn't fake, just old. It's a 1950's C series Serial# G64005653F. I would like to know if it has some more face value.

It happens old bills don't always pass test.
It is about $12.50.

I received a $10 bill 1950 E Series as change. Probably only about $12 value according to similar postings above, but I noticed the cut of my bill is off-center. Does that add any additional value?

If you mean a 1950 with a district letter of G it is about $12.00 the Minor Faulty Alignment eror does not add any value.

I have a 2008-P Alaska Quarter that has a gold tone to it. Just wondering what this is, as I've never seen the gold tone on a new US coin.

Man said...

It happens when a coin is heated like in a dryer, also when exposed to certain chemicals.

No extra value.

10 dollar bill 1934A in VF grade.
1950 five dollar bill in XF grade.

1950 five dollar bill in XF grade about $7.00
1976 2 dollar bill in CU grade about $3.00

Average-low since no serial numbers were given.

Hi, would you help me out with the value of some bills I have?

1934A $20 bill Fed Bank New York Serial B48449999A - I'd say near perfect condition, looks untouched except for one crease not even a quarter inch long across the bottom left corner

1934 $20 bill Fed Bank New York Serial B10499863A - Lime green seal, fairly crisp but a few noticeable folds

1950C 10$ bill Fed Bank New York Serial B29783728* - Very crisp except for one not too noticeable fold down the center

1934 $5 bill Fed Bank New York Serial B 04861373A - Lime green seal, quite a few folds and rather dirty

1957 $1 Silver Certificate Serial *9653833B - Decent condition, some dirt, a few folds

1935A $1 Silver Certificate Serial S55197551C - Fair condition, couple of folds but otherwise crisp

I'm especially interested in the value of the 1950C $10 * note; I have someone interested in buying it for $75 but looking online I see some going for more.

I also have a very worn 1912 Liberty nickel (can barely read "United States of America" on the back). I'm assuming it's not worth much considering the condition, just cool to have.

Thank you very much for any and all help!

Hello, my name is Carlos and I am in power of a currency similar to that partner says.
I mean the sovereign victoria dei gra brittregina fid def ind imp. On the back the horse with the dragon and overhead jorge embossed reads "fetish 750/000" YEAR 1915.

I have understood that only sovereigns were minted with the face of victory until 1901 and as much as I look I can not find anything like it.

I'm not fond of this one I have this coin bearing in my family since I have use of reason, belonged to my visabuela who died at 105 years of age and that 36 years ago.

So that is a copy rule, I'm from Cadiz "Spain" ye found another message from someone in valencia with the same doubts.

Only metal value it is 18 karat gold or 75% gold. These were made for jewelery and are not real coin.

Again it is a sovereign but without a picture I cannot say if it a fake or real.
