As a reputable coin shop involved in buying and selling, we frequently encounter individuals who have inherited coin collections. Regardless of the collection’s size, we welcome you to bring it in for a complimentary verbal appraisal. In some cases, people choose to sell the entire collection, while others opt to sell the valuable pieces and distribute the remaining coins among family members, especially if there are younger individuals who would appreciate them.
To assist you in identifying the coins you’ve inherited, here is a brief guide:
- Cents: These include pennies, such as the Lincoln cent series, Indian Head cents, and early copper varieties.
