It was $10, so it was a good buy, actually.It is empty. You got cheated.
Well, there was a WHH 'golden' dollar minted in 2009. And a Fillmore dollar in 2010.Would numismatists rather see a newly created Millard Fillmore half dollar or a William Henry Harrison gold dollar?
Probably Bill. The 70 year old vet with lower leg circulation issues and an overall grumpy demeanor. But it would be short, just longer than the other Old GuysTM at the local coin club.
Take them to a local respectable coin dealer to determine 'value'.What should I do with all the all-silver coins that I own? Dimes through silver dollars. A large baggy full of them.
I'm not sure, but it likely is an artistic/aesthetic decision. Spelling out the words fits and looks better on anything given coin's design.A question, from someone who used to collect coins (and still has his childhood coin collection!): Why do American coins use words to identify their value ("ONE CENT", "FIVE CENTS", "ONE DIME", etc.) instead of numerals (1¢, 5¢, 10¢, etc.)?
Nothing very 'unusual', but I have found three 1950-D Jefferson 5 cent coins in circulation. Each coin is worth about $7-$10 to a dealer. It's the lowest mintage Jefferson 5 cent so far (and likely forever given the annual modern mintages).What's the most unusual or valuable coin you've found in circulation? Before 1990 or so, I used to find two or three silver dimes or quarters in my change every year.
The 43s will get you, maybe, a $1 soda from McD's.I have a dozen or so steel pennies (1943 and 44) in fair - good condition. If I were to sell them, am I looking at a used car or perhaps pay for Junior's trade school?
I said 43 and 44 because they are steel Lincoln pennies and I know they made those during the war years.....but now I'm extremely eager to get home and see if in fact I DO have a 44. That would be great!The 43s will get you, maybe, a $1 soda from McD's.
A steel 44 will pay for your house and an extra house....but it's quite unlikely you have a steel 1944 Lincoln cent.
Officially, only 1943 was the production year for steel Lincoln cents.I said 43 and 44 because they are steel Lincoln pennies and I know they made those during the war years.....but now I'm extremely eager to get home and see if in fact I DO have a 44. That would be great!
I collected stamps when I was a kid and still have a collection in storage somewhere. Seems I should have sold them off about 20 years ago. Oh well.The United States has the most awesome stamps in the world, though. Too bad stamp collecting is mostly dead.

There's always some level of 'value'. How high depends on the particular coin type, it's metal composition and its condition.Do random Moroccan coins from the 1950s (or possibly slightly earlier) have any value for collectors?
I'll try to remember to grab them the next time I'm in the basement - I think that's where I stashed them. My father was stationed in Morocco (Naval Air Station Port Lyautey) for a couple of years in the late '50s; I assume that's where and when he picked them up.There's always some level of 'value'.

Pics will help me pinpoint 'value' for you.
Thanks for the offer. But I got my coins out and there are too many to inventory--it would take me hours. If knew how to post a pic here, I would. I'll take them to a local dealer after Christmas.Take them to a local respectable coin dealer to determine 'value'.
PM me the dates and mintmarks and I can give you a good general wholesale value amount.
Wow...an actual serious inquiry.
