Is this a good find?

  1. If it's a good coin what's it worth

    Looks like one. Nice.
    Really no premium for that issue.
    It's worth only what a collector is willing to pay for it.

    By the way.. You don't need to add a poll to your threads.

    It's a polite way to say your coin is not valuable.

    NAV, or No Added Value, is another way of saying it, but Paddyman is correct about maybe getting a premium from someone that collector those coins. Over polished dies have been around for years, but hardly noticed by most. Good eye Smalls.

    Get yourself a Red Book (A Guide Book Of United States Coins - Yeoman). Doesn't have to be new, the old ones are just as good since the prices aren't exact (rare coins will have higher values than common coins, but beyond that...eh) but a wealth of information.

    @Kentucky beat me to it and gave you the best book for new collectors. Do an eBay search as you can usually pick one up for very cheap, and like he said, ignore the prices, even on a new issue, as they are usually out of date by the time it is published. It's the information about each series that is valuable.
    Also, there are many web sites with excellent information.
    PCGS.com has lots of good information on coins and for minting process and errors, these are good:
    http://www.doubleddie.com/1801.html
    http://www.error-ref.com
    And those are just a couple. If you want to focus on a particular denomination, just use your search engine. Good luck.
