Q:Subject: To Open or not to Open

I have an unopened bag from the Denver mint containing $50 (5,000) 1970 one cent coins. It is my understanding that there was some double stamped one cent coins in 1970 but I have never seen one and I have never opened this bag which I obtained at the bank I was working for 32 years ago. My question: As these are uncirculated should I open the bag and examine the one cent coins for a possible double stamp? And If I do will it lower the market value of the 5,000 1070 one cent coins even if they are not double sltamped? My name is Bob Jacobs and my email is <>

Q: Subject: 1881 Morgan S
I have an "1881 Morgan - S" dollar piece. It is made out of copper. I have sent this piece to the ANA for a complete evaluation. The ANA has determined the coin matched the 1881 Morgan - S, however because it was struck using copper, the ANA has concluded the coin is counterfeit. The ANA could not confirm if the Morgan was possibly a "pattern coin." As a result, I am now researching all materials relating to any possible pattern coins struck for the 1881 Morgan - S. Any information you may have or can direct me to, would be appreciated. Thank you. email: <>

Q:Hi, I found what appears to be a 1999 dime that seems to have been misprinted. You cannot read the "In" or the "We" in "In God We Trust" and the last digit of the year is missing.

Q: I understand that the 1974 1 Centesimo from Panama was struck at the West Point Mint. I also know that the West Point Mint did not use its mint mark "W" on those coins for Panama.

Thank you!! <>

Thanks for your site.
From: Nick & Kim Wade
My husband and I have several jars full of misc. change and were considering turning them all in for cash. I have been slowing filtering thru as I would hate to put something back into circulation that may be worth more than it's stated value. Your site was very helpful.

"This is my favorite kind of e-mail, I hope the site can help everyone who finds it."
Thank You All. The Webbie
