    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 coin, which was minted in 2008 and has a “P” mintmark, features an error. 1There is a metal shaving that curves and runs through the shield When taking a look at the reverse, you can clearly see a cut starting at the “A” in the word “Half Dollar”. 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.

    A RARE half cent minted in 1793 has sold for more than $3,300 online. Most interestingly, the coin marks the first year of production of the half cent.   1This was the first year of the half cent it's considered a rare date The design is part of the Liberty Cap series, with this particular coin featuring an image of Liberty looking to the left. Meanwhile, you might be surprised to find out that half cents exist. In mintage from 1793 to 1857, half cents are considered the smallest denomination ever produced by the US Mint. “While this unusual denomination might seem useless today, it was an important part of our monetary system back when working wages were $1 per 10-hour day,” Professional Coin Grading Service president Ron Guth wrote in a description of 1793 Liberty Cap coin.  “The 1793 Half Cent is a scarce date and was one of the very first coins issued by the US Mint.” The half cent in the eBay listing sold for a total of $3,383.33 after attracting 45 bids.

    A RARE quarter from the 1800s has sold for more than $4,000 online. The quarter, which features a seated Liberty on one side and an eagle on the other, has been minted in low volumes, which makes it rare.   1A total of 56,000 of these coins have been minted In total, 56,000 of the 1860 seated Liberty S coins are said to have been minted. The coin gets some of its rarity from the aftermath and the effects of the US civil war, which drove coins from circulation. “Like the 1859-S quarter dollar, the 1860-S is a rare date that is virtually impossible to find in mint state,” Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) president Ron Gruth wrote in a description of the coin. “As such, it is one of the most important condition-rarities in this series, on par with some of the 1870-1873 Carson City issues and the 1859-S.” Depending on the condition of the coin, it could be worth up to $55,705 if in an “Uncirculated (MS-60)” grade. The one that sold in a recent eBay listing sold for a total of $4,265 after...
    CHECK anywhere you might store change at home because a rare nickel from 1937 has sold for more than $1,100 online. When it comes to the 1937 nickel, there are a couple of interesting things to note. 1The front leg on the buffalo is missing For one, the coin was one of the last buffalo nickels minted. The buffalo nickels were struck by the US mint from 1913 to 1938. But most notably, the 1937 coin, which features an Indian head on the obverse, has an error that can be seen on the side where the buffalo is. The error can be noticed on one of the legs. “There will be three solid legs but the front leg will be clearly missing,” USA Coin Book (UCB) wrote in a description of the coin.  On the very bottom of the reverse of the coin, you’ll spot a “D,” which stands for the mint location Denver. When it comes to the coin in the eBay listing, it sold for $1,110 after picking up 27 bids. Most read in MoneyPAYDAY 'Surprise' $6,300 stimulus checks' being sent as calls for...
    A RARE Lincoln penny from 1922 has sold for nearly $3,000 online - meaning you would be quite fortunate to have a coin like this one lying around.   If you look closely, you’ll notice there is no mint mark on the penny featuring 16th President Abraham Lincoln. 1There is no mint mark below the year on this Lincoln penny Typically, on Lincoln coins, the mark can be found under the mint year of the coin. According to Jamie Hernandez, price guide editor for Professional Coin Grading 3Service (PCGS), all 1922 pennies should bare a D mint mark but there was “sloppiness in the production process”. “As a result, it is believed that a mint employee obtained an old obverse die and filed it down in order to improve its appearance,” Mr Hernadez said. “But instead, the mint employee ended up filing the D mint mark too much, and in return, created the 1922 No D Lincoln cents.”  The D stands for the first letter of the mint location, which is Denver. This rare penny sold for $2,909.97 after racking up 32 bids on eBay. Most read...
    A RARE silver dime with an error sold for nearly $400 online – meaning you could cash in if you happen to have one lying around your home. The rare coin is often referred to as a “Winged Liberty Head Dime” and was designed by sculptor Adolph Alexander Weinman.  1The "42" that is placed over the "41" on the coin; this is known as an overdate Today, many Americans are familiar with the dime featuring 32nd President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.  The Liberty dime, on the other hand, was last struck by the US Mint in 1945.  What stands out about the 1942 Mercury dime that sold recently on eBay is the overdate.  Specifically, the “42” is placed over the “41” over the coin.  This is easy to notice where the “2” is on the coin. You can clearly see that there is an unusual symbol to the left of the “2,” which of course happens to be a “1.”  This is not as noticeable with the “4,” but you can still tell that it's overdated from a close-up view.  Most read in MoneyMORE MONEY Calls to...
    A QUARTER has recently sold online for more than $1,200 – meaning you’ll want to carefully check anywhere you might store change to make sure you aren’t missing out on the value. The rare coin, featuring US first President George Washington, is unique given its extremely low mintage. 1Just 408,000 of 1932 D quarter have been minted Interestingly, there are were only two Washington quarters with mintages under 1million. One is the 1932 S and the other (the one that recently sold) is the 1932 D quarter. The difference between the two can be noticed on the reverse of the coin. The one sold in the listing features a "D" above the "Quarter Dollar" text one the reverse of the coin, while the other features an "S." These letters stand for their respective mint location: Denver and San Francisco. Just 436,800 and 408,000 of these coins have been minted respectively, according to Professional Coin Grading Services’ (PCGS) David Hall. “Both coins have been highly sought after in all grades for the past 60 years,” Mr Hall wrote in a description of the coin. “They are the...
    STEVE Feltner has been collecting coins ever since the age of eight - and his impressive collection is now worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.

He had only seen dimes featuring 32nd US president Franklin Roosevelt, who has been the face of the 10 cent coin since 1946, before.

    A RARE £1 error coin has sold on eBay for over £150, because it's missing one crucial element. The rare coin sold for £156.02 on October 21, which is a considerable amount more than its actual denomination and face value - and it's all due to a lack of silver in the middle of the design. 2The point coin is missing one crucial elementCredit: eBay 2Over 20 bids were placed on the rare error coinCredit: ebay This happened in the minting process of the coin, and actually makes it resemble more the old style pound coins that stopped being legal tender back in 2018. The minting fault means the coin is missing the silver nickel plated alloy middle that's seen on all the modern British pound coins we use everyday. The coins, introduced into circulation in 2017, are designed to be bimetallic, but the error version is gold all over instead. That unique flaw has only made bidders more keen to get their hands on it though, and as a consequence 23 offers were placed on the listing as seven...

    A RARE £2 coin with a minting error on it has sold for £420 after collectors battled to bag it in a massive bidding war. The coin, which the seller claims was minted in 2010, has been struck twice on both sides. 3This error coin has been sold for a whopping £420 on eBayCredit: eBay This means that both designs on each face of the £2 coin have doubled up and “fallen off” the side.
