Coin and Paper Money Collecting/1799 Dollar

Question
I would like to know how much a 1799 dollar coin is worth the coin is in good condition

Answer
Hi William,

The big question is if the coin is real -- there are more fakes out there than there are real ones.

Compare yours to pictures and specs of a real one here :
http://coinfacts.com/silver_dollars/draped_bust_dollars/1799_silver_dollars/1799

IF yours is real ....
in well-worn condition it is worth about $700
lightly worn is worth about $4,000

If yours matches up to the pictures AND the specs at the link above, your next step would be to see about getting it certified ... see pcgs.com or ngccoin.com

I hope this helps,

Dan

Expertise

My strong familiarity with all U.S. Mint coins, extensive reference library, and close relationships with many other dealers allows me to identify just about any coin made in the USA. I receive regular updates to all the current price guides -- both wholesale & retail -- to provide accurate values. So, with a good description or pictures, I should be able to identify and value any U.S. coin you have.

Experience

I've been a coin dealer since the 1980's and a coin collector since the 1960's. I specialize in U.S. Silver Coins and have an active online website -- The Working Man's Rare Coins -- http://www.workingmancoins.com -- offering information and inventory in U.S. coins.
