    First, welcome to the neighborhood, Courtney!

    The large round ones are quarters and the small round ones are dimes. Yes, I'm being silly, but you have to be more specific about what you see (or think you see). Otherwise, you will get a lot of crazy remarks like this.

    Your choices are curious. Do you collect quarters?

    These are all common coins, with the picture having the two quarters showing damage after they left the mint. I don't see anything with a premium over face value. If you don't have one, get a Redbook (Whitman's "A Guide book of United States Coins" by RS Yeoman, as it is the best place to start with understanding US coins. they are about $18. These are available online from the Whitman store and at most larger bookstores and coin shops. Welcome to CoinTalk.

    @Courtney Lemoine ...already a member for 10 days, welcome to CT.

    Although the age of the coin is important, the condition of the coin is paramount. All of these have significant wear or are damaged.

    Key dates, like a repunched date or a low mintage coin are good to hunt for, but even these need to be in decent condition to consider for buying. Strike, luster, eye appeal and more qualifiers are used to grade and attribute for proper assessment.

    All of these coins are worn or damaged and common dates. The 1965 date was the first year for clad coinage, but from that date onward, quarters and dimes no longer contained silver, so to be collectable, need a wear condition of AU58 or better (imo). I recommend obtaining a Yeoman Red Book, if you haven’t already. It has tons of information to help you research coins you find...Spark

    @Steve Shupe ...you posted while I was composing, but we agree that the Red Book is what will help her the most at this point...Spark

    Welcome to CT. If you do not already have the Red Book you should buy one. A wealth of information, it will help a lot. There are many other sources out there also. Keep searching the best is yet to come. Good luck

    You have already received your answers but I wanted to welcome you to CT and add my 2¢ about posting photos in the future.
    You should always post in focus FULL IMAGE photos (after you upload your photo, two buttons appear: Thumbnail and Full Image, click Full Image and your photo appears full size on your post and they can easily be enlarged by clicking on it). Photograph coins on neutral backgrounds like black, grey, or white. Crop out superfluous background so just the coin shows, and post photos with correct orientation so members don't have to turn their computer in some awkward fashion to view it properly. While it isn’t always necessary, it is nice to show both the obverse and reverse, even if your question is just about one side. Members can often give more valuable information having both sides to evaluate. Add close ups of areas you have questions about and make your questions as definitive as possible so we know what you are asking for. And try to have the best lighting possible to show the most favorable photo of the coin. Hope this helps in the future. Good luck.

    welcome to CT Courtney Lemoine. i assume from your question you are curious if any of your coins are worth more than there denomination. i would like to tell you that there worth a lot more but there not. 1964 and older coins had 90% silver and in saying that Nickels minted in the United States between 1942 and 1945 are made of 35% silver. These are commonly known as "silver war nickels." Normally all other nickels are composed of 75% copper and 25% nickel. read up on silver in US coins and US error coins so you can pick them out a little better. good luck

    1965 may be 56 years ago but the mintages for both the quarters and dimes were in the billions. There will likely still be millions of them still in circulation for decades to come.
