If you become interested in coin collecting, a little knowledge goes a long way with this series of coins. There are several small nuances in some coins that make them quite a bit more valuable than normal specimens. These nuances are beyond the ken of CoinQuest, but it might be worth your while to investigate further, especially if your coin is free of problems such as scratches, stains, cleanings, nicks, or gouges. Find knowledgeable collector or professional coin dealer for an in-person appraisal.
