I have 1895 one shilling and 1844 one shilling. They are in Farley good condition apart from some discolouration but could be cleaned up. Didn't want to do it myself incase it hurt the value. Does anyone know the value of these? I did do some research but I get different valuations. Any help or advice would be appreciated.

to CCF.

Questions like this will get more attention and good answers in another forum. I've flagged this post so that the moderators can place it in the appropriate forum.

I don't collect coins such as yours, so I can't give you any good answers other than to say it is usually not a good idea to clean coins unless you are absolutely sure you know the proper way to do it.

If you have to ask how to/should I clean... then leave them be.

For these two... the 1895 is scrap silver (common and rather worn).

Your pic of the 1844(?) isn't very clear... but that looks to be rather worn as well. Also, while slightly more interesting than an 1890s piece, there's no shortage of that date in that condition.

For something like this, eBay is your price guide. Note that only the ones with prices in green sold:

I know its a temptation to "improve" the look of a coin but best to resist and never clean any coin. If something can be cleaned then it will keep till some time in the future however once you clean it that process and accompanying damage cannot be undone.

These coins are cool, and are worth their silver content but usually sell for slightly above. In 1844 4,466,880 were made and 1895 8,880,651.
