Question
I have recently inherited some coin collections and am trying to obtain their value...most likely to sell.
What information is important when trying to determine their value?

Also the first question is I have a framed  uncut sheet of 2.00 bills (32) series2003A with a J in the seal.
Would you please give me a guess as to its value?
Thank You  Any help you can give me is appreciated.

Lots of information available for free online. See: http://www.numismedia.com/fmv/fmv.shtml

Best thing to do, if you have the time, is to categorize the coins by date, mintmark and denomination. Check to see if any are silver and/or key dates.

See what similar coins are going for on ebay. Selling. Easiest, but less in your pocket is to sell to a coin dealer.

Get at least two to three estimate on value from PNG dealers. You'll likely get about 60% of retail value. See: http://www.pngdealers.org/

You can sell on ebay and probably get a higher price then selling directly to a dealer, but it takes time and you need to package and mail your items.

If you have some more valuable coins, you could consider consigning them to a coin auction. There are several major ones, see: http://blog.coinsupplyplanet.com/top-10-coin-auctions/

For your 32 note 2003A sheet, check ebay listings...anywhere from about $75 to $150. See: http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_odkw=2003a+32+Uncut+US+%242+Notes+Dollar+Sheet+C

Good Luck!
