Many people find old coins while cleaning out drawers, attics, and the like. Every day here at Old Mint the phone rings with a question about a “rare” coin somebody found in their antique desk or worse, in the ground. To help guide you in what to look for I have compiled a list of items that I would look for in a pile of coins. This is a very simple list, and does not take condition much into account. If you have a coin that is absolutely blazing new, she can be worth money, even if she is a common date, conversely a rare date that has been cleaned in any way or damaged can be hugely devalued.

            Indian Cents

                        1859 to 1877 : all dates, but the big kahuna is   the 1877

            Lincoln Cents

1909: all S mint Mark, specifically the 1909-S with a small VDB at 6:00 on the reverse.

1910-1914 Mint Marked Coins



            Buffalo Nickels: Dates must be clear

                        1913 all types

                        1914-1926 Mint Marked coins

Mercury Dimes







Standing Liberty Quarters- Any coin with a clear date and a fully outlined shield on the obverse. The 1916 to 1920 are goodies in this condition. The 1927-S is VERY condition specific, she can be worth 50 cents or several hundred dollars depending on how nice she looks.

Washington Quarters



Walking Liberty Halves


            1917- All types and Mints

            1919 All Mints

            1921 All Mints
