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?
>>
how will you know what it is if you don't unpack it, just do it delicately w/o destroying the roll, probably pretty worthless though sorry to burst your bbl
>>

>>1080783
Nah I was prepared for if its worthless, my luck usually.
>>
>>1080786
when you open post contents and I'll tell ya
>>
>>1080780
Don't open it. Sell it as an unopened 1940s roll. It's probably worth more if people don't know what's in it.
>>
>>1080780
Which country? Do you have the exact year of the mint?
>>
>>1080792
if he doesn't open it he won't know if it's valuable at all, and ppl won't believe it's unopened anyhow
>>
>>1080792
I started opening it already, did I fuck myself?
>>1080793
US pennies, and I'm not sure about mint, entirely new to this coin thing.
>>
>>1080798
nope, ur good op, even if they're unc 1943 steel cents the won't be worth more than a few hamiltons
>>
>>1080798
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.
>>
>>1080803
If you can open up the roll without damaging the casing, even better. That might add value to them as a set.
>>
>>1080793

nice to have a fellow coin collector on here, you collect for fun or more for investment?

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.
>>
>>1080808
I had to rip the casing, so that's probably no good now.
>>
>>1080814
can't help you a lot w/ that photo, just use that link the other guy gave you and look them up
>>
>>1080814
They look like Lincoln Wheat Pennies. There should be the year in which they were minted stamped on one side of them.

What's the year?

>>1080812
Not a coin collector really, just a fan of monetary history. I should probably start though.
>>
>>1080819
I had a feeling.
Thank you though.
>>
>>1080780
Look out for these dates OP

1909-S
1914-D
>>
>>1080823
>>1080824

Also, check to make sure all the coins are of the same mint date.
>>
>>1080823
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.
>>
>>1080823
The years vary between 1912 to 1956

Except an 1893 coin with an Indian head.
>>
>>1080831
That sounds like it could be worth something
>>
>>1080780
I'll buy them all op what's your price
>>
>>1080834
nope, no really unless rare dates/mintmarks or great conditions
>>
>>1080831
I tried getting a picture but still shit quality camera.
>>
>>1080831
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
>>
>>1080841
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.)
>>
>>1080844
Based on the link I sent you, that coin probably has a market value between 1.30US and 10 US (hard to tell the condition based on the pic.)
>>
>>1080844

Dude, I appreciate your thread here but you need to learn the basics of photography.

Focus BEFORE taking the photo. Hold the camera steady. Make sure there is adequate light.
>>
>>1080846
I'm not sure what you mean by face value, like just their normal one cents worth?
Also I have to share a computer so I may not be able to reply...
>>
>>1080854
Right. In case there are other coin denominations in there (dimes or whatever)
>>

Do either of these two coins have a double print on the lettering?
>>
>>1080931
No, but the last two digits of 1946 look printed different.

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.
>>
>>1080939
Alright thanks for the help.
>>
>>1080939
$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?
>>
>>1080780

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
>>
>>1080953
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
F (fine):
G (good): € 65.00
>>
>>1081052
OP here.
That pic is the back.
It doesn't look like the same back.
