    Honestly the blank quarter is probably the only one worth more than face value, but I like showing you guys what I have and I learn more about these coins ever time. 1499262A-6AE8-49C6-BA23-735D566DD4A4.jpeg A43C0A5B-95B5-4EC1-AFC0-EBCFC307B0AF.jpeg

    The dime and cent are worth above face.

    The cent actually looks to be 1874 and worth few dollars.

    The dime is silver and worth a couple dollars.

    The quarter also has no ridges on the edge E6FC4DE9-49C2-4628-B32D-02339433503B.jpeg

    You’re right it is 4 and not a 1. I figured the dime was worthless because the rim is messed up and it’s so tarnished. The cent has a lot of buildup, but I wouldn’t remove it. I feel like it would probably lose value if I did. Thanks for the reply

    The dime is always worth it's silver value.

    You'll need to weigh the blank.

    Read about the coin-minting process, and you'll see how we go from a strip of metal, to a blank (a disc punched out from the strip), to a planchet (with a raised, or "upset", rim), to a coin (with designs on both sides and a reeded edge, at least for dimes, quarters and halves).

    You're on the right track here; you know not to clean potentially valuable coins, and you're making good observations.
