How much is this coin worth?

Coins-United States | Mr. Monetary

I've done some research and(according to multiple sources including a Red Book) I have found that it could be worth $130,000. It is a 1884-S dollar coin. Is this the actual price?

Sorry. But all of the above is right. Maybe 40 dollars. . It's worn down. It's done it's work.

Looks like a VG grade from the photos.

I would place it in a position of family value, always to be treasured, but unfortunately, you won't be making a down payment on a new home with it. I really like it though. Later!

I agree with Longstrider. The lettering is funny, and I treat everything off of esty to be either a fake or an overly expensive coin. Esty shouldn't be selling coins. I saw an error for a penny that was just an XF-40 graded coin that had a massive amount of scratches on it. If it was in that condition, and it was real, it would be worth a fraction of its mint state price.

All of the below, I don't know if you were looking on Etsy, but this coin would never go for that much unless it was in phenomenal condition or had a rare error.

I don't trust Etsy at all. I'm just not so good at grading coins. The price I listed was from a red book under a high grade column(somewhere around MS 60 to MS 65)

If it was MS-66, it might be worth half of that. But because it is heavily circulated, it is only worth like $30 or so

If it is real then worth about $35

Everyone has a different opinion on the grade. You are going to hate me but I think it may be a Chinese counterfeit. Sorry..

My grandfather inherited the coin from his grandfather

I see what you mean John. The lettering outside of Liberty's head DOES look a little funky.... Idk tho. Id recommend weighing it and letting us know what it comes out as. Cheers!

I think I would be a little more generous with the grading and call it a VG. I say that because you can clearly read Liberty on the crown. all the lettering is clear on both sides and though the stars are worn, they are distinguishable. The reverse looks more worn but you can still make out some feathers on the wings. I'd probably offer 26.00 for that coin.

I agree with Golfer on this one... Look under G-4 and add $5 or so (The price of silver in the book is a bit low).

Nice coin. the value depends on the Grade of the coin. I can't tell but good look. Stay Safe, Mr. B

Could be... But not for this coin. Not in this condition. Sorry... Can we see the obverse?

Condition is important. Looks very worn. Maybe look at the G4. price area?
