For all those who still follow this blog- I’m really sorry for the inactivity! I plan to start photographing more of my collection shortly.

Also, if anyone is looking to sell some coins (Civil War or Hard Times Tokens especially), please message me and we can exchange emails! I am looking to expand my (albeit limited) collection of tokens, and coins in general. I’m specifically looking for US coins Civil War-era and older (1860’s and earlier), though I will consider foreign and newer coins if pricing is reasonable. Please send me a message if you have anything to discuss!

1853, 10 cents, USA

This dime was minted two ways- with arrows around the date (as pictured), and without. With arrows, it is valued at around $30. Without, it is valued around $125.

1863, USA, Civil War Token

"Dix"

Pictured together with an error of the token. A well-known error was minted with a misspelling on the reverse of the coin: instead of reading “SHOOT HIM ON THE SPOT”, it reads “SHOOT HIM ON THE SPOOT”.

Approx. Value of each: $20-$25

3 Cents, USA, 1865

Approx. Value: $20

1902, USA, 10 Cents

"Barber Dime"

Approx. Value: $2-$3

1943, USA, 1 Cent

"Steel Penny" or "War Penny"

Minted only in 1943, these pennies lack the copper composition of other dates, and were zinc-coated steel instead so the copper could be used in bullet casings and other war necessities. They corrode easily, and only those in extremely good condition are worth more than any other wheat penny (see photos for condition example).

Approx. Value: $5-$10

1929, Panama, 2 1/2 Centesimos

Approx. Value: $3

1875, Germany (Berlin Mint), 5 Pfennig

Approx. Value: $2
