    Figured I'd get these three out for opinion. I read they are valuable, however after what I've learned I realize condition is very important. Hoping for a surprise. I need value. But...lol IMG_20200214_031222_3.jpg IMG_20200214_031222_3.jpg IMG_20200214_031222_3.jpg IMG_20200214_031222_3.jpg IMG_20200214_031203_3.jpg IMG_20200214_031155_6.jpg IMG_20200214_031111_7.jpg IMG_20200214_031018_3.jpg IMG_20200214_031005_3.jpg IMG_20200214_030901_9.jpg

    Really? Where?
    They look like normal circulated cents. Millions were minted in that year.
    Yes they have to be in much better condition to be worth a little bit more.

    Lol. Ok. I can take a hint. I won't show anymore 69's . But I can't wait until I can do the TA DUH!! Moment and blow socks off. I thought one was a little doubled. Hoping to be right. But was pushing my luck.

    Not sure where you got the idea they're valuable, but they're worth one cent apiece, despite the fact they're 51 years old now.

    Well in the coinFacts it says that they are in certain cond'. I realize now they aren't anything but false hopes but it was almost worth a shot. Thank you.

    Those are in OK condition for circulation finds, but nowhere remotely near the sort of condition rarity you'd need for them to be worth something.

    Thank you. Wow so much more to learn. But, I did manage a Ms or a Bu this morning. I'm very excited no matter the value. Thank you for helping me realize what I gotta have.

    Lmao! I have a daughter who has had a double mastectomy a complete hysterectomy and part of her intestines and stomach removed. Then survived spleen cancer. She is only 32 and has 4 georgeous grandbabies. I'm definitely a winner everyday!!!! I was hoping extra income. But with all I'm learning I'll get there.

    Hi @Ruthlankford68 and welcome to CT. Yes, there are sources out there that will lead you to believe that pocket change can bring wealth. I been collecting coins for fifty years and am far from wealthy!! However there is much joy to be found in the rich history of our coins. Enjoy!

    I am really enjoying myself much more than I thought I would. I hope to eventually have something great. And I will. I feel it. Never give up. Fun!

    to start learning about grading you can first start doing comparisons.
    This webpage can help you with the basic visual comparisons

    most of the time people are very gratuitous to the coin in hand compared to the one in the picture. If you really start becoming unbiased, and look at all the scratches, wear etc and compare it to the pictures (by zooming in etc) one can really learn a lot and start understanding the larger variance in grading, if at least from a general sense.

    Thank you for the info and encouragement. I will use the info I'm given to become a better coin collector and eventually be good at it. It all takes time. And correct knowledge is priceless. Thank you.
