Good Evening,Because of the time and research involved in valuing each item we usually only do one item per question. So if you would like, I can address your first set of items here and once you accept my answer we can move on to your other items in subsequent questions. I would love to help so please let me know what item you would like me to start with!Thank you for your time,Frank
What more information do you basically need?
I will get started on the research of the items and have an answer to you about the coins. Are your looking to resell the coins or is this for insurance, also are you looking for a fair market price or are you looking more for retail?Thanks,Frank
I am looking for the best market/value price for these coins. As far as I know, my mother has been the only owner of them. She had some in plastic packages. Also she had some that I have never seen before, so I did not know the value of them.
In the resale of coins condition plays a major role in not only the grade but also the demand and the collector's willingness to buy. For all of your modern coins 1970 and older the only way to get anything other than face value out of them they would have to be in uncirculated condition, which means that basically that would have never been touched by hands before. The second these go into circulation they begin to lose value. Collectors are not buying much of the clad coins these days. They are looking for mis prints in common pieces. For the most part coin collector's are looking for silver in their coins, as the metal value helps to retain the value of the coin. These would include your 1964, 1968 Kennedy half dollars. The 1923, 1943, 1945 and 1940 Mercury dimes. The Franklin Half dollar and the 1922 peace dollar. The older buffalo nickels would have some collector value but these are not worth quite as much, and the Indian head penny would also have some collectible value. Everything else is basically face value and you can spend them, the mark up is very slim on these pieces and they would have to be basically uncirculated for them to have much more value than face value.Please let me know when you have read this and I will go on with the evaluation of the more important coins. If you can give me an idea of the condition of the better pieces I can be a bit more specific with the evaluation.Thanks,Frank
