    Nice!

    I found an 1840-o and it came out of the ground looking brand new, much like that one.

    Took it to a coin shop (well known) and they said it's only worth melt value and they would pay $10.00 for it. They said it's too corroded and warn. Also, without that scratch it's not even worth anything. Very discouraged!!! I see the same dime on ebay that are slick and have been graded and people are bidding on them. They said it's way below Fine.

    Melt value for a dime is way under $10! I would want to keep it If I found it anyway.
    Get paid for taking surveys and doing offers, I've been paid almost $150 so far!

    ...that is not uncommon for coin shops....never sell to one until you get several offers or have it slabbed.....%99 of em are crooks

    As more of coin collector than a metal detectorist, I will tell you one thing, do not sell that coin for $10. Put it on eBay if you really must sell it.

    finding seated coins are few and far between at least in my neck of he woods.finding an 1843o in any kind of shape is great yours looks a lot better than most i have found.i think that the value would go up in time plus you get to show it off while you wait.this would be a great addition to anyones collection. congrats on an awesome find.
