  1. Heritage Auction has sold AU Browns in the past. Price varies, but seem to range from $45-$60. Those are certified and graded though. I found one too.
  2. Hi, I'm in need of some help. I have 4 Sacagawea Dollar coins, which we've had for years. Now that I am getting interested in error coins and collecting, I researched these, as 2 of them are different than the others. One is brown in color, and the other is more of a dull yellow gold vs. the golden shiny color of the other two. I also noticed when viewing them from the rim side by side, the yellow golden one seems very different than the others. I had read that they experimented with different alloys as well as rinses, and am wondering if the two that are different might fall into that category. The yellow golden one is a 2000 P and the brown one is a 2001 P. Attaching photos of all 4.
  3. Thank you. Appreciate your help.
  4. I have found multiple coins with really pretty rainbow toning on them when moved around in the light. Here is an example of my most recent find. Am wondering if they are worth keeping and if they would have any value?
  5. Hi, I have a 1981 Penny that has teeny holes throughout the entire penny on both sides. It also has what looks like errors in the words as if it rubbed on something before the words were set in. See pictures. At first I thought it was a damaged coin from perhaps a disposable sink, but then saw the errors in the lettering. There are multiple, but am showing closeups of Liberty and One. Would welcome feedback. Thanks in advance.
  6. Thank you. Is it worth keeping though?
  7. I'm new to this, and get confused relating to doubling of any kind. I find under the microscope what looks to be doubling sometimes, but unsure if it's normal to see a coin look this way when the light hits it at a certain angle, or if it means doubling. When I move the coin to a different angle the definition of the shape changes to a thick black line. I've seen pictures and videos that show that as doubling sometimes, but as there are different types/levels, I am unsure. Any help or guidance is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  8. I have a 1951 nickel that has an error (filled in) 5 in date. Not sure if this would be deterioration or an actual error. Can't imagine it being deterioration when the top of the 5 looks like it was squished at time of minting, but could use a little help from people more knowledgeable than I. I'm still a novice. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  9. I found a 2005 Lincoln Penny with a double earlobe and a possible floating roof (line is so faint, that it can't be seen by human eye and very very faint on microscope). However the coin is in mixed condition. I cannot find any coins listed anywhere with similar errors for that year, so am thinking it is a rare error and if so is it worth getting it graded/certified. It's in mixed condition due to what looks like a chemical stain, but if it's rare, that is why I am unsure. I'm new to this, so any suggestions/guidance is appreciated. Thank you in advance.
