    Silver melt value.. $1.00

    I think it's a key date (low mintage year) so someone might give you it's collection value.

    Condition will be taken into account so don't hope for a high price.

    Very nice find, Key date coin. Should be worth 10 X what you paid.

    That would be 30 dollars. You might get that. Maybe a little more. G-4 says 60

    A tough date that should be worth $25.00 upwards depending on grade and condition. Not the key date but a semi-key date for sure. Well done.

    A solid G-4. Letters and date worn but discernible. All lines and 90% of bands worn off. Third lowest mintage in the series therefore grading is a wee bit more lenient. A good buy. The coin is well worn but clean. No dirt, no damage, not scratched and no dings or dents.

    The obv might very well be G-04. But the reverse is not and it takes it down to AG-03.
    1921 a good score. Times 2.

    The store is a little pricey but they bought a lot of dimes and I cherry picked them. So it worked out lol

    NGC lists this 1921 Philadelphia @ $58 in G4, Michael K has it right at AG03 and the value at about $40...I'd have to look up the mintage numbers, but this is a great find! 97 yo...now to find the buyer who would fork over $40!!.

    Personally, if I were you, I would keep it, even though it is currently depreciating (according to NGC, anyway). You may not ever find another one like you did this one...Spark
