It is one of the new nickels, the tails side is there but the heads side is completely smooth. Think it is worth much ?

Ill give you 5 pennies for it.

i guess it would depend on how many were made like that. i'm no expert, but i think stuff like that can be worth something... if not now, maybe in a few dozen years.

i'd either hold onto it, or sell it for $500 on ebay as an "extremely rare misprint".



edit: wasn't there a messed up batch of quarters recently? i think the news station said that they were going for ~$250-300 a piece on ebay...

if it is real - then it is valuable as hell - even accidental double stamps are extremely valuable - do not give it to anyone to get an appraisal for you...ever....happened to a friend and it is gone forever, and of course the guy made a killing on it!

Hey, I think I found a typo, on page 619 it says "Jebus."

That... That's supposed to be "Jesus," right?

That major of a misprint is probably pretty valuable. You can get pretty serious bucks for something minor like a double strike. You need to have it appriased by a coin expert.

I have an unstamped penny, how much is that worth?

almost as cool as trying to find a consecutive serial #M1

Tag, let us know if you sell it and how much it goes for.

I'm an amateur coin collector. That misprinted nickel is worth money. Tell him to hold onto it.

I've got a penny that made it through the stamping process almost completely smooth. You have to look VERY closely to see any type of mark on it. It looks almost like a copper slug.

Ka-CHING!

Mint errors are worth a lot.

Off the subject a bit, but since there are so many coin experts here I’ll ask.

I have some silver quarters from WWII, they are pretty worn but in good condition. Any idea how much they are possibly worth?

Send the nickle off to a grading service like PCGS or NGC and have it certified, it'll sell better if you want to sell it for a quick buck, might be worth $50-$100 or more.

Dealer at the gun show was selling silver quarters, all years, for four bucks apiece.

Just remember.. Whatever you sell it for now is probably a hell of a lot less than you could get for it in say... 20 years. Might be worth holding on to if he can keep it in a safe place and looking new.
