So I received a roll of pennies that were supposedly left in a bank untouched since 1940s
I'm unsure whether I should unwrap them and put them in a case or just leave them. Would it matter value wise?
Open it up, but be very careful with them. Take one, check the year of the mint and the type of coin. Try not to scratch it. Take a picture of both sides and the round edge.
Store again and reseal.
Next research online. Look at market prices on ebay or specialist sites. You need to understand what is collectible and how to sell it for a good price.
Alright I opened it and I couldn't keep the case in a good condition.
Heres the best Image I could get, I have to use my phone camera.
It's a really enjoyable hobby just be sure to go for quality over quantity, you won't regret that later. Less more valuable valuable coins is better than more less valuable coins. Seems like basic logic but once numismatics drags you in it's tempting to buy by the lot. Also specializing is nice, like only slabbed coins.
You know.. it would be a lot of work but this is actually pretty cool.
Could you make a list of them all? (I counted over 50 of them in the pic.)
Be very careful not to damage the faces.
I'll try to list them.
Heres the best image I could get on my phone of the indian head
So make a little spreadsheet with the following:
Face Value, Year of Mint, Condition (see link above for an idea.)
/Biz/ could probably value the whole set.
(The fact that they are mixed coins suggests the roll was in circulation before. Not fresh from the mint.)
Alright. They're all one cent
1920 s good
I'm not good with text limit so I'm going to make a second post.
1938 d good
1946 d good
1946 d fine
1958 extremely fine.
In absence of the double-lettering on the 1955d coins, I'd estimate your coins at the upper end to be worth about $51.60 and $21.40 at the lower end.
The 1924d is probably the most valuable one, unless the 1955ds have double printed lettering on them, in which case they could worth something. Pic related.
You'd need to take them to someone with more know-how than me in person to get them properly valued.
$51.60 at the upper end sorry.
Depending on the condition (if some are uncirculated) that could make them really valuable. Keep them safe, don't scratch them. Put them back in a roll or something.
I'm putting them in these paper single casings, but I don't think I have enough.
Anything you could tell me about a 1939 1000 afghanis bill?
Probably not much there anon.
I have every US penny from 1901 to 1995. I think the whole collection is worth like $100.
The only money in coins is those crazy rare coins that only a few were issued or there was some issue error with them like a double stamp. And even then, they STILL need to be in great if not mint condition.
Sorry OP. I feel the same. I been collecting coins since I was a kid and I think my total collection is worth like $200
Yeah, I wasn't getting my hopes up for 100 dollar coin or anything.
It was a birthday gift, they said they paid 30 dollars for the roll and I don't plan on selling them until I get out of university.
Does the back side of the note look like the above in the link?
Could be worth something if so:
UNC (uncirculated): € 925.00
XF (extremely fine):
VF (very fine): € 300.00
G (good): € 65.00
