Poll Question
I picked up at recent estate sale-1st Flight of Wright Bros & Sir Winston Churchill. Both 28.6gr SILVER , Both 0726 on Edge, both NCS 1965 stamp. I find these coins but different images. The images on my coins have a Satin type of finish. Help me find out what I'm missing please, I'm LOST!!! AS always Thanks for all the input and suggest a good camera with light diffuser!

These are not coins but probably medals minted by a private mint. If they are made of silver, they are worth melt value. If made of a base metal, then probably of no value.

The medals (not coins) that you've presented were struck by the Franklin Mint as part of its National Commemorative Society (NCS) series that it produced in the mid-1960s to 1970s. The series included 150 different medals; they were struck in sterling (0.925 fine) silver and have a silver weight of 0.83 ounces each.

The definitely have a value in the medal collector market that extends beyond their melt value. Those that do not specifically collect medals will typically view them negatively and undervalue them (this includes most every dealer you might talk to about them).

I can't tell from your post exactly what question(s) you have, so please post again if you need more info than what I've provided.

That's good info from Commems. I didn't think that there was much of a market for Franklin Mint medals above melt. I have a bunch of the "100 greatest masterpieces" sterling silver medals from the FM made in the 1970s, but don't think they are worth more than melt, maybe they are?

Medals definitely have a collector value but in my experience the medal market is quite thin compared to coins. Many if not most modern silver medals cannot be sold for more than the metal value. This is certainly the experience of my LCS.

That being said, do check the ebay sell prices in case you have one of the exceptions.
