Coin value question

2 posts in this topic

Dear kind people, 
I got a few coins that might be of value. unfortunately I live in Japan and there isn't many expert here on US coins.
could you please help me find the value?

1. An Error Coin of 1943 wartime Silver nickle with a P mint 
This one is an Error coin (There is no E in Monticello) so I thought it could be extremely rare. could you please check it?m24895287447_2.thumb.jpg.c08c569fbfbc7d5b9f50762b4e97ce8c.jpgm24895287447_4.thumb.jpg.53da04aaae5c9c6497a9e2c47865778a.jpg


2.there is an Off-Center Lincoln 1 Cent coin too. this one is My friend's. 


3.I also have a few other coins but I can't be sure if any of them are of a high value... I include all the pictures.

I'll be glad to look up the foreign pieces. You could help me by separating all the US coins. Dimes, quarters, halves 1964 and before are 90% silver. Halves 1965-70 are what, 40% silver. US cents 1958 and before may in some cases have special value. US cents 1981 and before at least are worth more in copper than one cent. US nickels 1942-45 (with the big MM over Monticello, like the error coin you posted) are I think 35% silver, so are worth about 75-80% of what a silver dime is worth. US coins that do not fit any of the above categories are usually worth face value (I didn't include dollar coins since your group shows only one, which is maybe worth slightly over face).

That would give you room to arrange all the non-US stuff and take a sharper, closer picture--watch for glare--then flip each one over in place and photograph that as well. I see an interesting Straits Settlements piece, some Polish, some Mexican, an intriguing piece that might be a Japanese token of some kind, some other stuff worth identifying.
