    MOST people disregard the value of coins, but they actually can provide you a nice chunk of cash. For instance, a 1964 dime featuring Franklin D. Roosevelt, recently sold for $108 online. 1A 1964 Roosevelt dime is worth more than $0.10Credit: EBay The 1964 Roosevelt dime is worth more than $0.10 because the dime is made out of 90% silver. Since silver prices skyrocketed in those times, the demand for these coins increased causing a shortage in their circulation. This coin is not just made out of 90% silver, it also has an error present. This error is known as large cud and can be clearly seen on top of Roosevelt's head.

    A JEFFERSON nickel that was minted in the late 1990s has sold for almost $118 online. The coin features the 1999 date with a D mintmark, which stands for Denver. 1There is a large cud or a damaged area that can be seen to the left of Jefferson If you happen to find a normal strike of the Jefferson 1999 D nickel, keep in mind it likely won’t be worth much. This is because of the high mintage, which exceeds 1billion. For example, the 1999 D nickel could be worth only 28 cents if found in Mint State (MS), according to USA Coin Book. However, there is an error present on the nickel in the listing, which can be seen clearly to the left of Jefferson's portrait on the obverse.

    YOUR quarters featuring first President George Washington could sell for hundreds online if you happen to own the right one. The Washington quarter was first issued for circulation on August 1, 1932, replacing the Lady Liberty design. 5Value of coins could depend on mintage, an error, or grade and condition Speaking of 1932, two of the rarest Washington quarters in existence have been issued that date. These are known as the 1932-S and 1932-D pieces, which are the only two coins in the series with reported mintages under 1million.

    A COIN featuring third President Thomas Jefferson with an iconic history behind it has sold for nearly $150 online.  The nickel that sold is a part of the Henning Jefferson series. 1No mintmark is present on the counterfeit coin These coins got their name from Erial, New Jersey native Francis LeRoy Henning.  Mr Henning was a counterfeiter in the 1900s – with the Jefferson nickels a part of one of his schemes.  Various experts believe that Mr Henning made 500,000 counterfeit nickels – with the dates engraved said to be 1939, 1944, 1946, 1947, and 1953.  About 100,000 are said to have made it into circulation.

    THE Morgan silver dollar is among the most widely sought-after coins in the U.S. - and one has just sold online for $371. The silver coin was minted from 1878 to 1904 with one reissue in 1921. 1The coin was designed by George T. MorganCredit: PCGS It was struck at five U.S. Mints: Carson City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, New Orleans and Denver. The coin came to life after the largest silver strike in the world — the 1859 Comstock Lode - which was a large silver deposit in Nevada. The lode resulted in a huge flood of silver to the market and helped provide the materials to make the coin. The silver dollar gets its name from George T. Morgan, who was selected to design the coin. Read more about rare coinsSILVER TREASURE Rare 1971 silver coin sells for $264,000 - do you have one in your wallet?

    A NICKEL featuring third US President Thomas Jefferson has sold for more than $150 online. While it can be tough to find valuable Jefferson nickels, some in high grades or with a unique element sell for hundreds or even thousands. 1The D over horizontal D error coin was certified by PCGS in an XF 45 grade In this case, that unique element is an error. Specifically, the error present on the coin is known as the D over Horizontal D.  If you take a close look, you can see that there is something behind the mark, which of course happens to be another D. “The 1942-D over Horizontal D Jefferson Nickel is a result of a Mint employee punching the mint mark in the wrong position on the working die,” Professional Coin Grading Service’s Jaime Hernandez wrote in a description of the coin. “Up until late in 1989 the Mint employee would hand punch the mint mark on to the working die and many times the mint mark would accidentally be struck the wrong way." The seller of the coin in the eBay listing claims that the piece...
    AN overlooked penny featuring 16th US President Abraham Lincoln recently sold online for nearly $200. Typically, when you think of valuable Lincoln cents, the 1909-S VDB, the 1914-D, or the 1955 double die obverse pieces come to mind. 1The 1915 S penny was certified by PCGS in an AU 58 grade However, when it comes to valuable pieces, you may not have heard of the coin in the series with the 1915 date that also features an S mark, which stands for the mint location of San Francisco. The 1915-S Lincoln cent has a mintage of more than 4.8million. The mintage isn't as low as the 1909-S VDB or 1914-D pieces, but the 1915-S penny gets scarcer in higher grades. In average condition, the 1915-S Lincoln cent is worth $26, according to USA Coin Book. Meanwhile, as for the 1915-S Lincoln cent in the recent eBay listing, the seller claims that it was certified in an AU 58 grade by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS).

    A QUARTER featuring first President George Washington has sold for more than $200 online. Since 1932, Washington quarters have been struck by the US Mint, replacing the lady Liberty design. 1The coin picked up eight bids on eBay When it comes to the Washington quarters, the coins have a couple of obverse designs you are probably familiar with. One includes the word “Liberty” (above the Washington image), with the date below the Washington image. Another design includes “United States of America” (above the Washington image) and the word “Liberty” to the left of Washington. And there are also the state quarters, which all feature their own unique design on the reverse. Like with all coins, the value of Washington quarters depends on low mintage, an error, or another unique element.  You’ll also want to take into account grade and condition.  Most read in MoneyCASH COMING $1,657 checks to be sent in just seven days as exact date of payments revealedNEW MONEY Surprise $175 payments on the way as exact date '$2,200 check' is due revealedMISSING MONEY $4,000 payment deadline passes as new $1,200 stimulus...
    A PENNY with one of the earliest dates in the Lincoln series has sold for $164 online. The circulated wheat cent was minted in 1910 and comes with an S mark, which stands for its San Francisco mint location. 1The rare penny could be worth even more if in uncirculated grades Lincoln pennies have been struck by the US Mint since 1909. But most importantly, if you have happened to find a Lincoln penny with an S mark that’s dated before 1940 – odds are it’s the lowest mintage in the year. In fact, there are just a few Lincoln pennies minted in Philadelphia (no mark) and Denver (D mark) beforehand that have lower mintages than the S coins. When it comes to the 1910 date, the mintages are said to be as follows: Philadelphia - 146,801,218 San Francisco - 6,045,000 There was no D penny minted that year.  Most read in MoneyNEW MONEY Surprise $175 payments on the way as exact date '$2,200 check' is due revealedCASH COMING $1,657 checks to be sent in just seven days as exact date of...
    A QUARTER with an early date in the George Washington series has sold for nearly $250 on eBay. The Washington quarter, which was minted in 1936 and comes with a D mint mark, is said to be one of the rarest pieces in the series. 1It is said that not many of these quarters were saved during this date The D mark stands for its Denver mint location. The mintage of the coin is more than 5.3million – which isn’t that low when compared to other Washington quarters with dates in the 1930s. For context, the rarest coins in the series - the 1932 S and 1932 D quarters - have mintages of just 408,000 and 436,800 respectively.  But Professional Coin Grading Services David Hall noted that not many coins were saved during the 1936 issue. “Perhaps during the depths of the Great Depression people were not inclined to save that many of the higher denomination half dollars and quarters,” Mr Hall speculated in a description of the coin. “Indeed, I have never seen an original roll of this date, while I have...
    A PENNY featuring Abraham Lincoln with an early date has sold for more than $225 online. The Lincoln penny is a part of the wheat ears series, which was the design of the coin from 1909 to 1958. 1A little more than 2.5million of these pennies have been minted Along with the early date, the D mark is important, which stands for its Denver mint location. Just a little more than 2.5million of 1924 D coins are said to have been minted. “The 1924-D Lincoln cent is the most difficult Denver coin to find in the Lincoln cent series, from 1911 to 1929 in grades of MS65 Red or higher,” Professional Coin Grading Services Jamie Hernandez wrote.  But the coin in the listing isn’t in an uncirculated grade.

    A THOMAS Jefferson nickel with an error has sold for $270 on eBay. The error present on the coin is a double strike. 1The Monticello is featured vertically across Jefferson’s head “A double strike occurs when the coining press fails to eject a newly minted coin completely from the striking area, and it then receives a second blow from the dies while partially outside the collar,” coin service website Fleur de Coin wrote. Many of these double-struck coins have their own unique looks. On the coin that sold, you can clearly see the error on the obverse, which features a stamped Monticello vertically across Jefferson’s head. The Monticello is the building normally featured horizontally on the reverse of the Jefferson nickels. While the year is tough to make out on the coin too based on the photos, the seller claims that it's 1939. Moreover, the seller claims this is D coin – meaning it was minted in Denver.

    FIVE error coins recently sold for more than $1,000 in one online listing. All of the coins feature well-known US Presidents including Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, and George Washington. 1Some of these coins are graded in MS - meaning they did not go through circulation Some of these coins were graded in a mint state (MS) grade, meaning they may be tougher to find because they didn't go into general circulation. Also, all the coins that sold on eBay feature a wrong planchet error certified by American Numismatic Association (ANACS) and Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC).  “Planchet errors encompass all mistakes resulting from a defective blank, whether or not it has passed through the upsetting mill,” coin service website Fleur de Coin wrote. The most common planchet error occurs when the “wrong planchet” is put through a coining press machine.   Furthermore, sometimes planchets when fed through the machine contain dies of different denominations.  Planchet errors are also known as double denominations.  Most read in MoneyCHECK PLEASE New $1,000 monthly payments coming in ONE day as $600 boosts could be sentFREE MONEY Applications for $1,000 monthly payments open as...

Double coin strikes could have a unique look in their own ways. For example, the 1995 Washington quarter in the eBay listing has the second strike 65% off-center at the nine o’clock area.

The Washington quarter that sold was minted in 2000 and has a “P” mark on the obverse. 1The New Hampshire state design was struck on a Jefferson nickel But it’s important to note that this coin is a part of the state Washington quarters series, which were minted between 1999 to 2008.  Each state quarter features its own unique design, which can be found on the reverse.  The one in the listing features the text “Old man of the mountain” with the date 1788.  Although “New Hampshire” does not show on the top of the reverse of the Washington quarter in the listing, this is clearly the design of that particular state coin.  The seller of the coin claims that the quarter was struck on a Jefferson nickel with a planchet mint error.  “Planchet errors encompass all mistakes resulting from a defective blank, whether or not it has passed through the upsetting mill,” coin service website Fleur de Coin wrote.

    A NICKEL featuring third US President Thomas Jefferson has sold for more than $400 online. When it comes to Jefferson nickels in general, not many of them will hold a lot of value unless highly graded. 2The nickel was a part of Francis LeRoy Henning's counterfeit schemes in the 1900s 2The error present is a crack in the 'R' in the word 'PLURIBUS' This is in part due to the mintage volume for each year being quite high. For example, you may only find a few in the circulated series with mintages under five million. But the Henning Jefferson nickel is a different type of mint.   The name comes from Erial, New Jersey, native Francis LeRoy Henning - who spoiler alert was a counterfeiter. The Henning Jefferson coin was part of one of his schemes in the 1900s.  Various experts believe that Mr Henning made 500,000 counterfeit nickels – with the years engraved said to be 1939, 1944, 1946, 1947, and 1953.  About 100,000 are said to have made it into circulation.

    AN error penny featuring 16th President Abraham has sold for more than $350 online. The error can be found on the obverse of the Lincoln cent where the mint mark is, which is located under the 1944 year. 1The "D" mark was overpunched over an "S" Many will of course notice that there is “D” mark, which stands for the mint location of Denver.   However, if you take a close look, you’ll notice that there is a mark visible above the “D.” This is said to be an “S” mark. In other words, the Denver mint overpunched its mark over the “S”. “The best way to identify this error is to note the 'D' mintmark stamped on top of a subtle 'S' mint mark,” USA Coin Book wrote.  Most importantly, the coin is quite valuable regardless of the condition. But of course, the higher the grade, the more it’ll be worth. The seller claims that the coin in the listing has been certified by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) in an “AU 58” grade.

    A GOLD coin that exists in small numbers has sold for more than $2,600 online. The rare coin is $3 piece. These types of coins were only struck by the US Mint from 1854 to 1889. 1Just 650 of these $3 coins are said to have survived So, if you happen to have a $3 coin – odds are it's valuable because it’s been well over a century since one was last minted in the country. The coin in the eBay listing features what is described as an Indian Princess Head, which can be seen on the obverse. The reverse shows the denomination of “3” and the year the coin was minted, which is 1883. Most importantly, the mintage is quite low as only around 900 to 990 of those coins are said to have been minted. Moreover, Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) estimates only 650 have survived in all grades. “This date is one of only three in the series that has an official mintage of less than 1,000 business strikes,” PCGS’ David Akers wrote in a description of the 1883 gold coin.

    A HALF dollar featuring 35th president John F. Kennedy has sold for more than $300 online.

The error curves and makes its way up to the shield.   According to the seller of 2008 half dollar, the piece was struck through a metal shaving. “These can be broken off rim burrs, many of which are produced a split second before the strike by the feeder mechanism,” coin glossary website Error-Ref wrote in a description of the error. It added: “Other metal shavings will have different origins from elsewhere in the press and from earlier stages in the minting process.” When it comes to the Kennedy P 2008 coin in general, it isn’t that valuable.

Sometimes grade and condition also dictate the value of a coin.  The seller of the 1911 S Lincoln cent in the listing claims it was certified by Professional Coin Grading Service in “AU Details”. Coin grading service Numismatic Guaranty Company defines that the grade includes “traces of light wear,” which are “evident on the high points of the coin's design”.  After 53 bids, the 1911 S Lincoln coin sold for $422.99.

    A NICKEL featuring third President Thomas Jefferson has sold for more than $150 on eBay. Rare coins, in general, typically gain their value based on low mintage or an error. 1There is a "loop" on the “R” in “Pluribus” But there’s an interesting plot around the Henning Jefferson, which is the one that sold in the eBay listing. The nickel gets its name from Francis LeRoy Henning, who was a native of Erial, New Jersey. For those who don’t know, he was a counterfeiter – and the Jefferson nickel was part of one of his schemes in the 1900s. Various experts believe that Mr Henning made 500,000 counterfeit nickels, with the dates engraved said to be 1939, 1944, 1946, 1947, and 1953.  The counterfeit coin that was sold online is dated 1944 and has an error present without a mintmark.

It features the 1920 date and an S mintmark, which stands for San Francisco.  While the seller did not specify it, the coin could be quite valuable in high grades despite there being nearly 50million pieces minted.  According to online database CoinTrackers, a 1920 S penny in mint state condition could be worth up to $425.  Most read in MoneyCASH HELP Checks to be sent out TODAY as Social Security recipients can get up to $4,194CASHING IN Advance CTC payments, IRS...
    A JEFFERSON nickel with a noticeable error has sold for more than $170 on eBay. Regardless of which side of the coin you look at, you’ll notice that the coin was struck to more to one side than the other. 2This is referred to as a 70% off-center strike 2The error can be seen on both sides of the coin This error – known as an off-center strike – will sometimes show a portion of the features, meaning there will be missing spots on the coin. On the obverse of the nickel that sold, you can only see about half of third US president Thomas Jefferson’s head. But importantly, the year (1963) and the D mintmark on the reverse are visible. According to the seller, the 1963 nickel in the listing is 70% off-center. Also, the seller claims that the coin is graded in “F-64,” with the F standing for fine.

    AN error coin featuring third US president Thomas Jefferson has sold for more than $450 on eBay. The nickel was minted in 1942 and has a D mark, which is where the error is present. 2Third US president Thomas Jefferson has featured on the nickel coin since 1938 2This coin features a D over Horizontal D error The error is known as the D over Horizontal D. If you look closely, you can see that there is something behind the mark, which of course happens to be another D. “The 1942-D over Horizontal D Jefferson Nickel is a result of a Mint employee punching the mint mark in the wrong position on the working die,” Professional Coin Grading Service’s Jaime Hernandez wrote in a description of the coin. “Up until late in 1989 the Mint employee would hand punch the mint mark on to the working die and many times the mint mark would accidentally be struck the wrong way." While the circulated error coin is rare enough, it gets even more scarce in an uncirculated grade– with “probably” less than 100...

When it comes to the Lincoln cent, there are a few different designs of the coin.   1The seller noted that 30% of the coin was off-center This includes the memorial cent, wheat ears, and reverse shield series. The one in the eBay listing, which includes the date 1916 without a mintmark, is a part of the wheat ears series. But most importantly, the one that sold features a noticeable error, which is known as an off-center strike. This error occurs when a coin is struck to more than one side than the other.   “The coin gives a freakish appearance as a result, and various amounts of blank planchet space are visible,” coin site Variety & Errors wrote in a guide.  “The coins can vary in value because of how far off center they are struck, although coins with full dates are more desirable than coins without a date or missing digits."

    AN error coin featuring third President Thomas Jefferson has sold for just over $129 online.  The Jefferson nickel has been struck by the US mint since 1938, replacing the buffalo and Indian head piece.  1There D on the coin is placed under the "5" - which is higher than it should be The lowest mintage in the Jefferson series is said to be the 1950-D coin, which exceeds 2.6million pieces.  With the mintage that high, that means it might be tough to find a rare coin in the series based on the high volume of pieces minted for each date.  For example, the one that sold recently on eBay is the 1975 date with a “D” mark, which stands for the mint location of Denver.  The mintage of the 1975-D nickel stands at more than 401million.  While the mintage might be high, the coin features a unique element.  According to the listing, the letter "D", which can be found on the obverse, is positioned higher than it should be.  Most read in MoneyCASH CLAIM Automatic $1,400 payments can be claimed TODAY after $660 monthly boost deadlineMEAL DEAL...
    BOSTON (CBS) — In the wake of what is being regarded as potentially the greatest football game ever played in Kansas City on Sunday night, debates about the NFL’s overtime format have been raging around the football world. They’re unlikely to stop any time soon. The crew at “Inside The NFL” on Paramount+ offered their takes on the matter at the end of this week’s episode. Phil Simms proposed a full 10-minute period of football to determine a winner. Brandon Marshall agreed with that proposal, citing fairness. Ray Lewis argued that defense should still matter, and thus the format does not need to be altered. It was a heated debate … up until Julian Edelman came in with the rule proposal to trump all rule proposals. “My thoughts are they should probably make it like the XFL did,” Edelman said. “They just throw a ball out in the middle, and whoever gets it, you get the ball. Remember that, guys?” Edelman was of course referencing the XFL’s infamous coin toss substitute from its run in the 1990s, which pitted two...
    A QUARTER minted in 1923 has sold for more than $1,800 online. Today, when it comes to quarters, many have only heard of the Washington piece, which has been in circulation since 1932. 1Next to the seventh star on the bottom left side of the obverse - you can spot the S Just a little before that time, the standing Liberty design was the quarter that was commonly used as a currency. That design was struck by the US Mint from only 1916 to 1930.  In other words, if you happen to find one of these lying around your home, it could hold some value.  In particular, the 1923-S standing Liberty quarter, which is the one that recently sold on eBay, could be quite valuable.   According to CoinTrackers, just over 1.3million of these coins have been produced. That’s compared to more than 9million Philadelphia-minted 1923 Liberty coins.

    A PENNY with an error recently sold for more than $450 online after a bidding war. The penny, featuring 16th President Abraham Lincoln, is a part of the memorial cent series, which was struck by the US Mint from 1959 to 2008. 1While some letters and numbers appear to be missing, there is the doubling of 1995 and Liberty Specifically, the design of the coin features the abolitionist on the obverse and the memorial on the reverse to honor the 150th anniversary of the former President.  Meanwhile, there is one memorial coin out there with a unique error, and that’s the 1995 Lincoln cent that has a shifted capped die error.  This error occurs when a coin gets struck through a late-stage die cap – and as result, the piece gets shifted out of position.  In the coin that sold in the listing, you’ll notice a few irregular features on the obverse.  This includes the doubling of “Liberty” and “1995.” But while most of them are doubled, it appears that some of the letters and numbers are missing as a result of the error strike.  Most...

Another reason is that “the Mint was primarily focused on producing Silver Dollars this year, therefore, producing them in large numbers”.
