    Hey got back from a Craigslist buy today. Paid $40 for two metal coin boxes full of proof pennys and other small coins. Here are the interesting coins in the box. What do you think, worth $40?
    1- 1964 Silver Half
    1- 1989 Canadian Loon Dolllar
    6- Proof Full Step Nickels (56, 62, 63, 64,64,70)
    1- 1 German Pfenning 1875B
    1- 2 Pfenning 1876A
    1- 1 1895A German Pfenning
    1- 1950D 1 Pfenning
    1- 1950D 5 Pfenning
    (All the German coins are in great condition, very crisp details)
    Finally a penny error, please help me with this one! Thanks guys!

    With just plain silver value you did OK.
    The shipping is what will nock the value down on this one.

    Redbook says anywhere from 8-5 bucks for the penny error. Page number is 407(2012 edition) under off center strikes category, The 3 dollar difference being between the zinc and Cu penny. HH.

    Thanks guys! Two of the German coins have $15-30 written on the back of them. For $40 I figured I couldnt go wrong.

    I think you got your moneys worth. I have those same type/condition German coins, if you find a good source online for their value, please post it.
