anyone collect coins? What kinds? hat is your favorite? What would you like to get? Lets discuss coins.

I like Morgan Silver dollars, especially the ones minted at the now closed Carson City mint. I have collected coins since the first grade, 1976. Milk at school cost a nickel a carton back then. my mother gave me a dime to buy milk, and I got a buffalo nickel back as change. It got me interested in coins. I once had a very valuable collection, but they were stolen from me in 1991, but i have rebuilt it since. I am looking at getting into gold coins, I have a couple, but I want to learn more about it first.

Tell me about your collection

I don't know anyone that appraises them, but a good way to find out is to look on ebay and get a sense of the market value of the arrowheads

Is an arrowhead the same as an Indian head?

No, an arrow head is a flint stone used in a bow, an Indian head is a shrunken skull (Funny) :)

Ha Ha Ha! Good one Jenny. I have a relative that has an 1898 Indian Head penny. I have another relative that collects coins but I have no idea what he has in his collection.

We have quite a few of the 1943 "White" pennies. Don't think they are worth anything, but I think they are neat.

it depends on the condition and mnt location, those were made of steel that year-I have some that rusted from moisture-the ones minted at san Fransisco are usually the more valuable, and in mint condition can be worth around 10-15 dollars

We recently were going through a deceased relaives items and found a cloth bank bag full of Morgan Silver dollars. They are not in mint condition, in fact most of them have been circulated a lot. How can a person tell where the coins were minted?

on the coin you will see a letter-s is for San Fransisco, o is for new orleans, CC is for carson City, D is for denver, and if no letter is present, it was minted in Philadelphia. Please be aware that some of those may be very valuable, do not sell them to anyone offering a one price fits all, for example 13 dollars a coin-some, even in worn condition, could be worth hundreds. The mint mark is located on the reverse, or the tails side, of the coin above the word dollar

In one of the coin magizenes I have there is an add for selling arrowheads, most were starting around 4.50 each, I am sure it depends on the type and condition

Have you ever gone down to the bank when they advertise to have someone there to appraise your coins? I did once and they said they weren't worth much. I will have to get them down out of the closet and see what I have. Just wondering if you believe them or how you can actually find out their worth. I will post back after I have time to go thru them and see what you think.
