    Hey you guys  smile  Sorry I haven't been around much.

    BUT I have a little task at hand. I am trying to find someone who knows a lot about coins. I'm hoping to identify/appraise a few before I take them to a shop and try and sell them.

    The coins belong to a friend of mine, and while I do know a little bit about old coins, I was hoping to get other opinions.

    I'm afraid I don't have the money to get them appraised professionally. BUT I know that Hubpages has a lot of knowledgeable people.

    I'm asking you, Please. If you can help me, please post or e-mail me. My friend could really use the money.

    Thanks everyone  big_smile 

    PS:  It's good to be back  (again)

      If it is US coinage I can help.  I collected coins for years and worked for a large dealer for 2 years.

      DO NOT clean or rub anything.  That can destroy value.  I had that happen once, a women cleaned up what would have been worth many thousands and ended up with very little.

        The majority is actually old english coins  sad 

        The only US coin in the lot is a lead penny, But it's marred pretty badly. Doubt it would be worth anything.

        Ohh~   and I know not to clean them or anything  smile  My mom made that mistake once.

          It would be worth buying the Coin Yearbook for the most current values.

    Where are you based and how old are the coins?  There are coin books issued annually which cover the coinage of a country and approximate value based on condition and age.

      I'm in Indiana, USA. 

      And I think the oldest coin I've found is from 1882.  They range from around late 1800's-1960's. 

      I know that the ones after about... 1940 won't be worth much at all, but there are a few that are in really good condition and are pretty old.

      Oh!   and all the coins are different. There are francs, Half pennys, Denars, etc.

      Cag!  It's awesome to see you again too!  ^____^  I haven't seen you around in quite a while.

      I'm sort of the same way. I grew up with my mom collecting, But I'm no expert.
