Hey everyone! It's been a while since I have been here. I hope y'all have been doing well and staying safe!

My husband and I have been SUPER busy with life lately and finally have the free time to study our collections. As a matter of fact, we went and bought a random lot of coins from around the world!

As excited as we (mostly me are, we'd also like to see if we can get our money back by selling a few. So, I would really like to get your opinions on the grades and possibly what they would be worth.

Thanks in advance for your help! My husband and I missed y'all. Here is the first one... [size=2]Hey everyone! It's been a while since I have been here. I hope y'all have been doing well and staying safe!

Tough to say for sure from the photos (a bit grainy), but this will probably be around an EF-40 to 45 coin. The 1958 Scottish reverse is a very common coin (over 40 million minted), and as a result, will have no commercial value in this condition. Unfortunately, in this series, even the 'scarcer' dates were saved at the time, so only really tip top condition examples are retail-able. Hope this helps!

1958 Scottish shillings were really common in circulation in this condition (about VF to me though may grade higher in the US) right up to 1990 when the old shillings and larger, older 5p coins were demonetised. The 1959, 1961 and 1965 Scottish shillings are the scarce dates, but as norantyki says, plenty were saved in Uncirculated condition so even they are worth little over face value if circulated.

By the way, if you find a similar shilling with three lions on the shield, it's an English one! Separate English and Scottish shillings were issued from 1937-66 (and in 1970 as Proofs) but both types were legal tender throughout the UK!

@brooke, for most modern world coins, I check eBay for the prices paid for ones that have actually sold.
For this coin, you will find that attractive circulated examples have sold for between $1 and $2.

High VF to low EFs - agree with everyone else, its a reasonable example, but these are very common coins and sadly made of cupro nickel so no precious metal value.

Value wise 20 to 50 cents, yet they can and do sell for face (10 cents NZ - 5 pence UK)
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

I'd go EF-45 on this one. Some luster remaining.
