    Had a pretty decent day today. Searched $920 in halves and found 6 silver coins (5 40% and 1 90%)

    I also found 4 proofs and was just wonder how much these might be worth? I know the pictures arn't the best, but any input would be appriciated!

    By the way, i didnt know if this should go in whats it worth or here in coin roll hunting because I did just find them coin roll hunting :)

    Circulated proofs don't have a premium attached to them for the most part. Value between face and $1.00 IMO.

    Are you sure the bicentennial is a proof? It looks like a 40% BU to me.

    Modern impaired proofs might theoretically be worth over face, but in practice, there aren't any buyers for over face. This is because un-impaired, normal proofs are so readily available for cheap, there's no reason for somebody to go purchase an impaired proof. There are a couple exceptions, I suppose, but for the most part, this holds true.
    That being said, I still hold on to all the impaired proofs I find roll searching. I find them interesting.

    I agree with Lon. The 1976-S is not a proof even though it came from San Francisco. There is a 40% silver BU set that was also minted at SF during the bicentennial. that's what you have. The good news is that it's 40% silver, though!

    The 2008 looks like silver to me. Should be 12.5g.

    You're right, it does seem to have that look to it.
    EDIT: OP, you should check the edge on that. See if it's silver or copper colored.
