I was wondering how much it was really worth in mint condistion. - brittany m. lail
Our 'fully uncirculated' price is for 'mint condition.' To qualify, there must be no wear at all on the coin. - CoinQuest (Paul)

The front is slightly black in the corner but you can still read the writing, and on the back part of it is smudged in a blackish color, and you can read the date a little bit, kinda hard to put it dose say 1914. In this kind of condition i described is it worth anything or it it just up to the buyer. - sam
Sam -- Condition means everything to collectors, and, because of that, condition means everything to the value of a rare coin. The fact that a coin is readable means essentially nothing. Collectors want nice-looking coins for their collections. Since your coin sounds pretty yukky, it is worth very little. - CoinQuest (Paul)
I found a 1913 penny that is in excellent shape. I can see most of the details which includes: part in man's hair, eye, ear, nose, goatee, and same with other side of coin that is very detailed. What would its worth be?
Sounds well preserved. See this page for value. See our Important Terminology page for pictures of coins in worn, average circulated, well preserved, and fully uncirculated condition. - CoinQuest (Paul)
I have a half penny the year 1903, very good condition and a penny that is dated 1913 also in very good condition. Not sure if these are worth anything. - Owen
While they have low catalog values, they are fun coins to collect! - CoinQuest (Todd)
My 1936 penny came with a hole in the top obscuring part of the 'ITT' in 'BRITT.' So I believe that it was minted in jewelry and then removed from the jewelry for use in selling grab bags. Does this change the value and because the fact that it was put in jewelry does it affect the rarity?
It would only have been used as a jewelry piece after it left the mint - and this doesn't affect rarity either way. It's not a particularly valuable date to begin with, so unfortunately once there's a hole in it the value becomes even less. - CoinQuest (Todd)
