how much is this coin worth

Update: I've since written an eBook that teaches you how to find out how much your coins are worth. It costs $19.95, but if you use the HOK discount code it's only $10.

One of the most common questions I receive is, "How much is this coin worth?" It makes sense that people would want to know if the coin they found hidden away in the attic could mean they won't ever have to work again, but that's not often the case.

For those of you who would like to answer that question yourself, this site explains the process step by step.

If you have any questions about how the process works, feel free to ask in the comments.

I have a Liberty Nickel collection all except the 1913 coin..How much is the set worth if I sold it as a set..They are in good condition to great condition,then i have a couple in fair condition..But I want to sell it all ? Should I or can I? If so how much is it worth if anything??Thank you

  » #

There's no price guide to determine the value of a set, because it depends on the condition of each coin in the set. It's definitely worth something though. You can see how much they're selling for at coin shops or online dealers (Ebay perhaps) to get a general idea of its value.

I have a 1943 and 1944 Jeferson nickel. On the back, at the top, directly under E Pluribus Unum is an "S". Is this a mint stamp or something else and do the nickels have any value? If anyone has any info it would be appreciated.

Thanks, Deb

  » #

Debbie: The S is the mintmark. The reason it was put there was to indicate the nickels had silver content because nickel was needed for World War II.

Hi,
I work in a gorcery store as on of the managers. Last night three boys came in to us our coin counting machine (it counts your coins and spits out a recipt deducting a fee for the service). The machine got jammed and I was called over.

Unjamming the machine I could see how old the coins were, the boys said they happened to find the coins in their basement. I urged tham not to count the coins in the machine, but to take them to a collector to see if they were worth anything. It'd be a shame if they got 9 cents one the dollar for face value and the coins were rare.

Cleaning up behind them I happened across $1.00 in change. Three Mercury dimes, two Roosevelt dimes and two quarters. I doubt if what I have is really worth anything, but I wonder aboth the boys.

They had at least fifty dollars in coin and all of it from that same era (WWII to early civil rights).

I doubt that they will come back and tell me, they were about 12-14. But I am still curious. Did these guys find a windfall?

Thanks
Andre

I'm assuming the coins were circulated and if so, they probably weren't worth a great deal more than face value. However, collectors would probably pay a little premium for them.
