    What is up with our beloved Miss Liberty Balding and who clipped ears? Any good guidelines on how to price this?

    It's a worn coin worth about $1.

    You might want to pick up a copy of the Red Book. Current or a few years old will work and save you having to take photos, upload them and typing.

    It is already on the works sir, I bartered with a person who handed me the wrong coin to hand me one, a gentleman from one of my earlier posts guided me to get a brand used one, for a new one will soon be coming out. Thank you kindly for the advice you and him both.

    If you cannot find a price for a coin in the price guides that usual means that it's
    value is really low. They may list only the higher Grades for modern coins.

    How come my 1870 nickel is not in the price guide? Ouch...

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Keep looking.

    Hint: The link in post #4 is for Liberty or "V" Nickels which is what you originally posted. An 1870 Nickel does not have the Liberty design. Dig a little in that link and you'll find what you want.

    (not trying to be rude. IMO, as you poke around, you'll find other interesting things that will help you learn about coin collecting)

    The Redbook is one of the best investments a new collector can make.

    The red book... is like the bible for coin collectors and coin lovers. Now I see why everyone who knows something about anything that has to do with coinaging, refer the new-bees. Thank you and that site way at the beginning from @alurid is awesome... https://www.pcgs.com/Photograde/ and http://coinauctionshelp.com/liberty-v-nickel-value/ thank you once again for at this moment CT and these sites arethe only light in my tunnel. I should have the redbook hopefully tomorrow or wednesday. Cheers!
