Newbies

Do you have a U.S. money and want to know its value? Leave a comment

Little under two days ago I posted about the last 2009 coins I found and then Kelly commented showing off her 2010 finds. Well wouldn't you know she must set some kind of butterfly effect in motion because I got a bunch of new finds in my change.

I got two new dollar bills, two new shield cents, and one new dime.

2010 Cent Philadelphia reverse and obverse


2010-P Dime, Obverse on top and reverse, some struck through grease damage
2009 $1 bill series up close
2009 $1.00 Bill, Obverse on top, reverse
The new cent is called the "Preservation of the Union" and depicts the Union shield popular during the Lincoln administration. My final verdict is that I like the design it is simple and tastes like copper.

The dime is 2010 and so far has twice the production of the 2009 and seems to be much more common in circulation. 2009 and 2010 will have lower montages than previous years but none of these coins will be considered rare. That said I still haven't found any 2009 nickels

The 2009 series dollar bill was actually first printed in February of 2010. This one in particular was printed  in April 2010 and is a bit bendy but not folded. The 2009 is a series reference not the actually date so for example if you have a 1950-D bill it was likely made in 1961-1962 so it is not from the 50s.

Here's the stats...
Type/Country: 1 Cent  / United States
Year: 2010
Mintage: 873,230,000 (estimated to date)
Metal: 97.5% Zinc, 2.5% Copper
Value: $0.01 in EF-40

Type/Country: 10 Cents / United States
Year: 2010 P
Mintage: 236,500,000
Metal: 91.67% Copper, 8.33% Nickel
Value: $0.10  in EF-40

Type/Country: 1 Dollar / United States
Year: 2009
Date Printed: April 2010
Printings: 96,000,000
Run: Not yet known
Value: $1.00 in CU(crisp-uncirculated)

Thanks to the Mint News Blog for their US Mint Coin Production table which I use often.

I was surprised to see so many new pieces at one time but I guess this means a slow down in old coins and a better economy...doubt it.

Do you have American change 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 a 1996 series $100 bill with a blue treasury seal and serial number. The bill is genuine, and I cannot find ANYTHING about this type of error. Can you help?
Thanks,
JD

Man said...

1996 series $100 bill with a blue treasury seal and serial number.

I have heard of this before but it is not considered an error.
It may happen when a solvent is smeared on the ink and it is impossible to tell if it occurs during printing or after.
So it has no extra value.

Anonymous said...

I have a dollar bill, series 2006, with an imperfection. Or at least I think it's an imperfection. The supposed error is a vertical line left of George Washington. It's definitely a line from the printing machine. The serial number doesn't have a star next to it. The line starts on the "E" in UNITED and slants slightly to the right ending above the "N" in ONE. Thanks for your help. DP

Sounds like part of a Bank ink stamp, but even if it is an Ink Smear error it would have no extra value.

i have several series of sequential bills but i have a set of three ones with two smears across each of them in the same place. they are crisp and dated 1999, do you think they are worth keeping? or am i just wasting space?

Man said...

set of three ones with two smears across each of them in the same place. they are crisp and dated 1999,

Depends on how big the smear is...
Minor (up to 10% ink) the 3 would be about $200.00
Major (30% or more ink) the 3 would be about $2000.00

I have a series 2006 1 dollar bill which has a minor alignment issue. on both the front and the back the image is about 4mm too high, leaving little top margin, while leaving an enlarged bottom margin (think Polaroid).

It looks like it has been through a few hands. definitely not great condition, but what would you estimate it's worth to be?

The serial # is B06199919B

Very minor error, it has no extra value.

I have a 1989-D Dime that appears to be "clipped" from the top of the L to the Middle of the T in Liberty. Not sure if this is a mint error or damage. Anyway to tell?

If clipped it's about $50 but I can't figure out what you are describing.

Here is the dime I was asking about.

Nice a straight clip and it has a flatness opposite of clip that shows it is real.

A little less then I imagined maybe 10% clip about $25 - $50 it is hard to say since I haven't seen this in auction for a few years.

Anonymous said...

Wow.. thanks. I was just trying to find out if it was really clipped or not, didn't expect it to be worth more than $0.15 :) It is circulated but not much visible wear on it, my wife got it in change a few days ago.

Great picture.
The bill looks uncirculated so it's about $50.00 each.

Oh it's a Minor Misaligned Overprint error.

In my church they were replacing windows and under the window they found a mercury dime. Of course it's not very clear, the out side rim is blurred, but it's clear enough to see the date: 1928. Please tell me if that is worth anything.

I have a 1976 dime that is smooth around the edge on the back. It has no ridges going around the dime and United States of America is cut off some where it is smooth. Is this worth anything?

Sounds like a Minor Off-Center error it is very common and has no extra value.

Man said...

Wait, I will add if half of the words "United States of America " it may have a $5.00 or more value depending on eye appeal.

The odd 8 means nothing varieties are normal.

But I do not know what "brooze" means did you mean bronze color?

Anonymous said...

yes the dine is a 1968 with a bronze color or maybe a little darker

Sounds like a Missing Clad error about $35.00 in very-fine but it should be weighed to make sure.

1916, 1916S, 1921, 1921D, 1938D, 1917 if the mintmark is on the front, all 1919.

All others in low grade should just be melt value.

I have a 1968 no proof mint and a 1975 no proof mint dimes. Are these the real deal? Is there anything I should look for on the dime to show that it is truly a rare coinage? Both coins are in great condition. Where do I go to certify that these could be these real thing?

Man said...

1968 no proof mint and a 1975 no proof mint dimes.

Both are common, no extra value.
Non-Proof coins are not special unless you are describing something else.

$50.00 bill from Trinidad & Tobago. These were issued in 1977 and recalled immidately.

There are two varieties with different authorization dates.

1963 is about $100.00
1964 is about $200.00

Both bills were issued for 1977 and the values assume at least very-fine.
