Default Any coin experts here?

I hope this is the right forum to discuss this. I have some coins I received as collateral on a loan that defaulted. I want to sell them, but I am trying to get an idea of what they’re worth. Each coin is sealed in a cardboard protector with a clear window to see the front and back. Almost all have the date and price marked on the holder, but I don’t know how accurate the pricing is. The coin collection is at least 10 years old, but I don’t know if the prices are from 10 years ago, 20 years ago or longer. I’ll try to describe them to the best of my ability and hopefully somebody can give me a ballpark idea of what they’re worth.

4 Silver Dollars: 1900-O, 1908-O, 1921, 1922

22 Half Dollars: 1907-O, 1945, 1948, 1948-D, 1949 (3), 1954-S (2), 1955, 1958, 1962 (2), 1962-D (3), 1963 (3), 1963-D (3)

12 Dimes: 1911-G, 1955, 1959, 1962 (5), 1962-D (2), 1964, 1964-D,

41 Nickels: 8 with a “V” on the back, 7 buffalo nickels and 26 Jefferson (all 1964 and older)

15 more dimes all Eisenhower, all 1964 and older – I couldn’t tell the dates on these because they weren't marked on the holder and my eyes are too bad to read them.

1 1857 once cent piece

This is the best I can do for my description. I’m thinking that the coins may be worth more for the silver content than for their collectability, but I don’t know.

Any ideas to the value would be appreciated.

I used to dabble in some cheapie coins and found this to be a good RETAIL site. But, again, you need to know the appx conditon too. There are other sites, where you can get a "photograde" picture, to prob give you a rough idea.

Condition matters a lot, any other markings on the holders?

For typical examples that have been used for a few years
The franklin halves may be better than silver. Especially the 1955.
The silver dimes have a few better dates,any 55, 49-S
The V nickles - Any before 1899 are ok, 1885 and 1886 are the best. and 1912-S is also good. (And 1913, but you won't have one of those)
The Buffalo nickles have a few expensive varieties, they'd be mentioned on the holder. There are a few better dates too.
The Jefferson nickels are mostly common unless the condition is really great. 1950-D and 1939-are pretty much the only tough ones, and neither is that big a deal. The ones from WWII are partly silver, they'll have the mintmark as a big letter above the building on the back.

That all changes a bit if the condition is really good. numbers on the holders like MS-63 or markings like BU would indicate a mint coin and for those there's more market.

Thanks, guys! Steve, there are no markings on them to indicate condition. I figured they were kind of like cards - that the price would depend on condition. Scott's website gave me some information that is somewhat helpful too. I also found another webiste that gave me the meltdown value as well, so at least I got a ballpark idea. I am off work Friday and I found a couple of coin shops here in Houston willing to take a look at them. Thanks again!

David- your coins can be divided into two groups: silver and non-silver. The current silver spot price is about $40 an ounce, meaning your silvers dimes and halves are worth roughly 29 times face value. The silver dollars are worth a tad more, maybe $35 each. The nickels are marginal and worth a few dollars, and the large cent is worth $10 and up depending on condition (the condition of the silver coins is irrelevant). Based on a quick calcuation, the retail value of that group is somewhere in the $550-600 range, and if you sell to a dealer figure you will get less than $500. That's a reasonable ballpark estimate.

Correction: I don't know if your 1857 penny is a large cent or a flying eagle cent. If it is a large cent it's a scarce date and could be worth $100-300 depending on condition. If it's a small cent figure $20-50, depending on condition.
