I was looking through an old collection of pennies that I inherited from my Grand-father. They range from 1911 to 1964. Just another project during Covid Isolation. Included are a 1920 and 1925 Penny (which I believe are more valuable than the rest). I would love to know what they are worth and the best way to go about selling them. I almost died when I saw this price on an auction site: https://www.pacificrimonlineauction...x?i=12970207

Hmm I would says it much low grade, however still quite rare coins can't say much on the 1920 no dot london as haven't had much experience but if I had to ?, the 1925 is about 100 to 170 range more like the lower one due to ware.

Value wise the 1920 penny appears to be one of the common versions and only worth a dollar or two.
The 1925 circa $150.

Thank you all for your advice and welcomes. Looks like I can cross off buying a new car with the proceeds. I will purchase a folder for the coins and pass them onto my kids one day.

One further question, what is a Space filler, Token? Obviously it is not a real coin! What is it made of? Can you get a 1930 one? I have seen plenty of other years on ebay. I was thinking of getting one to complete my collection.

Generally speaking a space filler is a coin that you usually would not collect due to its low grade/condition, however some people believe that even a low grade coin is preferable to having a space.

I've seen a GB 1930 penny used to fill the 1930 penny space in an Aussie penny collection. (Looked a bit odd).

Another one I saw used a cardboard cutout of a 1930 penny. Obviously not a coin, but at least it was the correct form.

The term "Space filler, Token" is often used by thieves on Ebay who sell fake (ie Chinese copies) as genuine.
