And that is why you should go to church. Anyways, I was really happy to receive this gift. So I decided to compare the prices then with the prices now. I found a few interesting things in it. First thing I noticed is the half cents. Only around $5 - 6 for the common ones (in Good condition) compared to around $25 - 30 today. The large cents also went up a lot since this book was made. From around $20 to $125... Except for the "head of 1793" which is currently priced at over $300. I also noticed that the grades only went to "V. Fine" where as now they go up to AU in most coin books. Next up is dimes. I noticed that many Mercury dimes were around face value during the time this book was made. The 1916 - D went from $90 in Good condition to around $500 today. That's almost a 600% increase in value. The wheat cents also went up a lot in value. A 1909 could sell for less than a quarter. The 1909 s was only $24. And the 1909 - S V.D.B was only $125 compared to $400 today in Good condition. Another key date Wheatie I noticed had gone way up in price is the 1922 No D wheat cent. It appears it was around $40 in G - 4 then, but you won't find them for much less than $300 now in the same condition. If any of you want to see a coin not listed in the pictures, just ask I'd be happy to compare it for you. P.S. it looks like we have over 900,000 posts on the Coin Chat forum. Let's get 1,000,000!
