    New to the site and was wondering if the "wounded eagle" dollar coin is worth anything?

    I do not see the wound in this pictures. A close up of the mid section is needed. Maybe someone with better eyes will see your Eagle's wound.

    It's only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.

    Well it is the "wounded eagle". I think your best bet would be to look at sold auctions on ebay to get an idea of value.

    Checked ebay and raw coins seem to be going for between $60 and $250 with most of them, in the $100 to $150 range. (although some have sold for as much as $425)
    Slabbed coins seem to be in the $350 to $450 range. These are prices for coin that sold, not just what people are asking.

    Seems crazy to me for a coin that is just struck from a die with a die gouge.

    Better picture. It does look like a speared Eagle. Nice find.

    Welcome to CT. It would be helpful if you post "full size" photos and not thumbnails and crop the photos so just the coin showed. I for one won't waste my time enlarging and fixing OPs photos to venture a guess at what they have.

    I agree I skip a lot of posts because they post a bunch of images, all of them thumbnails. If I want to see one I have to open it in a new tab, and then usually enlarge it before I can see anything. Do that for 6 to 10 images? No thanks.

    These are the photos I have on my phone, I'm not a photographer.

    When you upload them to CT you have the option to select either thumbnail or full size. Just select full size ;)
