    I Have a 1853 half dime O marked with arrows. I just wanted some opinions on what it’s worth. I know if it didn’t have arrows it would be worth a lot more. On a side note this is my first post!!! 5F2C9B29-9527-4F97-A859-4DAB185090DE.png 5F2C9B29-9527-4F97-A859-4DAB185090DE.png E3C4D3F9-A762-45F2-A257-BDE3B753B2E0.png

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    It's hard to make an estimate because your coin has some damage on the rim which lowers the value. You could probably buy one in G4-G6 Condition without damage at a coin show or shop for around $10-$15. Maybe half that for a coin with a damaged rim.

    Welcome to CT. Your coin is in the $5 to $10 range.

    Thanks guys, I’m probably just going to keep it then. It’s a really cool coin, I actually found it in the tip jar at work and thought it was a dime at first.

    Yeah, all my coins I have found. I also count all the drawers and I’m allowed to replace coins as long as I give them what the coin was worth (face value). To the store it’s just a coin, everyone was like “why is he so excited didn’t he say it’s like a nickel”

    It's not extremely valuable as-is - I concur with @ldhair on the $5-10 estimate - but that is a very cool find from a tip jar!

    I also love those varieties with the mintmark inside the wreath like that, for some reason.

    Great find! A pre-Civil War obsolete denimination from change? That's nothing short of remarkable.

    Definitely a keeper. Lucky.

    Especially if it starts a new journey for you. I still have my first old coin that started me collecting in 1976. (It's a 1936 dime.)
