I wish I was good with spreadsheets bc Id love to add in a way to calculate all my pre-1964 dimes and quarters.


It has silver dimes in the spreadsheet. It also allows you to input how many coins you have and will tell you the current smelt value per coin and the total value of all your coins.

I don't know how I overlooked that

I saw it there, but didn't break it down all the way to see that it was indeed pre 1964 values

Awesome spread sheet, but frick me, its going to take me FOREVER to count what I have.

re: Tips from MT Coin Collectors


Found a 1892 (S) while going through my collection...

Values range anywhere from low 100's to 150 depending on what site you look at.

Also found a 1900 (O) which looks like its got a value of around $60


Not a bad surpise

Cant speak for anyone else but work happened
Work has been busy lately and haven't had time to really post much.

ETA: In other news,I've decided to put together a complete series of Silver American Eagles but with Proofs. Haven't made much headway on it other than the 3 ASE Proofs I recently posted.

I won auctions on eBay yesterday for an 1841 dime minted in New Orleans (O) and two 1892 O silver dollars.

Is that post worthy?

I'm with Drew. Been busy with work. Still check this thread from time to time though.

I do have a guy coming by today from the local yard sale website with 9 Morgans and 5 Peace dollars. He said conditions range from Good+ to Poor. Has them priced at $30. I will report back with what I walk away with.

Also, still haven't got around to going through the half dollars I have.

Alright, reporting back...

My guy came through and I ended up getting 3 Morgans and 2 Peace dollars.

The Morgans are all from the New Orleans Mint dated 1890, 1899, and 1901 rated at Good +.

The Peace dollars are 1922 and 1923. One has no Mint mark and the other is from San Francisco.

Price tag for all 5 was $150. I feel pretty good about my purchase!

You paid a premium of $5.75 per smelt value for each coin ($28.76 total)

Appraised value: Unknown and who cares

Just out of curiosity, what was the damage for the dime and silver dollars?

Nice! I was expecting more for the dime, as much as 10x more, but it seems you got a nice deal!

re: Tips from MT Coin Collectors


Thanks, but the $10 I paid for that dime is pretty typical of prices on eBay for dimes minted in the 1840's and in that condition. It's pretty worn. You can't read a single letter in the word "Liberty" on the shield leaning against the rock which Lady Liberty is sitting on. In fact, you really can't make out the shield at all.

The most I've ever paid for a dime was $37.50 for an 1854 O (New Orleans) dime in almost uncirculated condition (shown below). I probably paid too much for it but it's a beauty and I really wanted it!

re: Tips from MT Coin Collectors


I've been busy with revising my budget and trip planning. But nonetheless I have a $1000 in half dollars that just arrived at the bank that I am going to go buy. I got another $500 box in half dollars I need to go drop into my account to help shield the $1000 hit I am about to take for a few days. It won't be bad once I finish picking through the rolls and return the new boxes.

I am not very fond of collecting bills, but those 25 cent notes are pretty neat. My dad has one that very worn where you can't see the date and torn in half. I googled it and it is dated anywhere between 1850s-1875 which I thought was very interesting.

The pics you have posted make me want to invest a little more time in using ebay. You post some very interesting old coins. The condition of your 1854 seated liberty dime is amazing
