    Re: What's the most valuable coin YOU'VE ever discovered?

    In 1999 I found a 1919s Walking Liberty in EF 45(appox.$500-$700)--its the finest silver i've dug.The old racetrack had been scraped down to the yellow clay, and I think thats what perserved it.I still own it.
    Then in 2001 dug a 1909s VDB lincoln cent ay a old homesite in Eureka Cal. Must have went into the ground AU, cause besides the porosity and some rim loss it grades V. Good with EF details-Sold it to my gardener for $350--I'm still lookin for the Pacific Gold Company $10 gold--i'll let you know when I find it!!

    Well it's not one that I found but one I traded for.I got an 1893-o Morgan dollar from a friend's son.He wanted my collection of foreign paper money(which I gave about a buck for through the mail).I had no idea about its worth until some yrs later.Only 300,000 were minted.

    It's a Bar Cent (or "bar copper" as some call it),? 1785 is the date it 1st appeared in the US

    It is said that it was minted in England for use in the 13 colonies during the period.

    They are very very scarce.

    There are also "copies" out there, they were made in the civil war era by J.A. Bolen, and are worth approx. $50

    Mine was an original (as seen by the spur/burr sticking out of the 2nd bar on the reverse on the right end of it).

    Only the originals have this spur-- also, copies have the A in "USA" crossing under the S instead of over it as mine/originals do.

    There are also "other copies" out there that are/were more like the originals made by who knows who but are easy to spot if you know what to look for. They are worthless (other than souvenir value).

    YOu might have a double die, but more than likely you have whats called "machine doubling". Machine doubling errors are not really worth much at all. I would seriously consider you getting the coins(s) graded by a respected company if you really think you have a true double die. That way you know what what you really have. Good luck!

    Thats hard to believe, even a gold stater in perfect condition doesnt sell for more than 5-6000$ at auction, what metal was yours?

    i think i remember reading something about 1909 pennies being a rare date or limited run, you should look into the value.


    as for my oldest or most valuable coin... i'm still looking for it

    Found this coin on the Dutch pirate shipwreck "Utrecht" that sank in 1648 during a battle with a Portuguese Galleon. The last time this kind of coin was sold at an auction it sold for US$ 25,000

    Re: What's the most valuable coin YOU'VE ever discovered?



    That's an amazing find, treasure.

    1909 was the last year of the Indian Head cent and the first year of the Lincoln cent.

    1909-S IH cents are valuable; 1909 Plain IH cents are not.

    The most valuable cent from 1909 is the 1909-S VDB. The 1909-S (no VDB) is the next most valuable (still only a fraction of the value of the 1909-S VDB). The 1909 VDB is slightly more valuable than the common 1909.

    VDB are the initials of the coins designer and are found at the bottom of the reverse of the 1909 cents. The initials created an uproar with the public so the initials were removed midway through the year making the 1909-S VDB cents very rare (only 484,000 were minted).

    What did the public find offensive about the initials? They thought VDB had something to do with VD (venereal disease) and did not want that on their coinage. This is the same public that got upset a few years later with Miss Liberty showing a boob on the new Standing Liberty quarters -- that coin was redesigned the following year to cover the boob.

    Re: What's the most valuable coin YOU'VE ever discovered?

    wow Klaatu, i guess you know your coins, what kind of value are we talking about ?, is it just the IH cent's that have value ?, as i have a couple of 1909 lincoln vdb wheat cents ( i don't know much about coins or the "s" ) what is the "S" ?, or where would it be located ?

    the ones i have are in old stapled and taped cardboard squares with cellaphane 1 has VG 8 written on it and the other has EF 40 on it, i don't see an "s" on them

    would these coins have any value ?.

    Re: What's the most valuable coin YOU'VE ever discovered?

    lobsterman,

    The "S" is a mintmark. Mintmarks denote where the coin was minted. "S" is for San Francisco. "D" is for Denver. Denver began minting coins in 1906. A mint in Dahlonega, GA minted gold coins with a "D" mintmark 1838-1861 (Yankees burned the mint.) Modern proof coins have a "W" mint mark for West Point. Usually coins minted in Philadelphia (the primary mint) do not have a mintmark but when they do it is a "P".

    The mintmark on Lincoln cents is located under the date. If there is no mintmark it is a "Plain" meaning it was minted in Philly. Some Lincoln cents are very valuable - depends on date, mintmark and condition. Look up what a 1922 Plain cent is worth; those cents were actually minted in Denver but a flaw in the dies caused the "D" to be missing. Strangely enough, Philly did not mint any cents that year so a genuine 1922 Plain was minted in Denver. (Forgeries exist where the "D" has been removed.)

    Not all IH cents are valuable - again, depends on date and condition. The only year the IH was minted outside of Philly was its last two years, 1908 & 1909. Those coins with an "S" had much lower mintages than the "Plains" and are much more valuable. Mintmarks on IH cents are located at the bottom of the reverse side.
