Help needed, I'm a complete newbie to this!!


Recommended Posts

I have recently bought a new house and whilst doing DIY I've found some coins hidden in random places. I was just after some info on the coins. What they are? Are they rare? Do they hold any value? And what I should do with them?


They are probably nothing special, but would like to find out a bit about them.

It does look like a normal coin, not 100% sure if it could be a date over print though, not sure what I'd be looking for.

The reverse of this coin is upside down, once again I'm not sure if that means anything or not.


If you need any more info please ask, I have no idea about coins so I'm not really sure what you'd need.


Kind Regards

Okay, sounds like they're both pennies if I'm not mistaken.


The 1797 is relatively common, though your piece is better than usual for the type. Value - perhaps $10-20?


The 1858 is quite nice - catalogue value for a non overdate 1858 is £95 - though I'm not sure what they actually sell for.
