I've collected most of my life, but now it's time I look into selling. Can anyone lead me in the right direction and/or tell me if these are worth selling or continue going through my collection?

They aren't perfect. These are how I received them and have cherished them.

Also, included my favorite Wheat penny that my daughter and I call "Shredder".

I just don't know how the process is or if it's worth online or action, etc since I seem to collect all the odds and ends of coins even though I have the typical uncirculated varieties that I know will sell but unsure about grading and everything else.

Thank you!!!

The 70s Lincolns you've got are probably 55-64 BN/RB. I'd keep them because I'm trying to make a MS Lincoln set from circulation, but they probably don't have a premium unless they are of rare varieties. As for Shredder... Looks like paint, but can't see what's going on too well. Cool coin, though.

The 1970-S might be around 63 red-brown. The 1974-S looks lightly circulated.

. Sorry to say none of these are worth more than face value.The 1970-S LD is folder worthy though. As to learning grading:https://www.PCGS.com/photograde/
As to value,eBay sold values and:http://www.numismedia.com/rarecoinprices/fmv.shtml

@dunkleosteus430 click on shredders picture and zoom in. It's an absolute mess but I love it so much!
It's one of those that you can make up stories about the life of a coin with a 10 year old. Shredder always makes us giggle. &


On a serious note, it has peeled over the years and that's the end result. I've never seen a coin peel away. I take it that Shredder has seen some things and needed a change. Hahaha

This is an interesting trio @mess. It looks to me like whatever chemical has stripped away the copper toning on that Wheat cent has also been more sparingly applied to the front of that '74-S.

Added: looks like we were typing at the same time. Since you are describing pieces of the coin peeling off the coin, that makes me think it was clear glue which had protected certain areas of the surface from every toning.

With the 'shredder' I think it was stored obverse side down with another cent on top of of partially covering the reverse, then an acidic substance was spilt over it bleaching out the exposed areas and also where the coins were touching.

If Shredder looks like this, imagine what he did to the other coins.

These comments are making me so happy, especially the picture. We are a star wars family. Whole house is dedicated and that is definitely top of the story list. Padawan turned Padawont.

If you look real close, I'm dying to know if there is strike errors as I cannot make out what it says on the one side. It has its own language.

Shredder can officially retire from all those underground coin fights.

Also, I have a lot of silver quarters, almost a timeline's worth, silver dollars, web notes, etc.

It's so hard to let go but we have fallen on hard times and hopefully I can take these comments and see what happens.

If all fails, I'm hoping I can learn some more facts and history.

Study coin sales on eBay's sold listings for an idea as to what your coins may be worth. Selling them on eBay is definitely the way to go. If you haven't sold items on eBay before, start with a few non-coin items to build feedback. Buyers for your coins will want to see positive transactions before trusting you as a coin seller. Realise you'll have to ship and insure your coins you are selling. If you're an established seller already on eBay you already know all this. Be realistic about your prices and you'll do fine. Hope this helps! Bonne chance!

To the CCF!
