Need help with grading

Recommended Posts

xina

Hi Folks

 

I got asked to provide "values' for coins, now I do not really have any coin catalogues, but I am sure the approximate 'values' should be on the internet.

 

What I need help with is getting the grading right as I do not know much about it and I do not want to select the incorrect value for each coin.

 

Any advice would be appreciated, these coins will be up on BOB once an asking price have been established. Some coins are really worn so they are probably not worth anything.

 

I have searched bob for some of the coins and the 1930 2 1/2 shilling seems to be a coin that would have some value to it.

 

Here is a list of all the coins

 

1: 1855 1 Penny ?

2: 1899 Half Penny

3: 1957 2 1/2 Shilling

4: 1941 2 1/2 Shilling

5: 1938 3d

6: 1942 3d

7: 1930 2 1/2 Shilling

8: 1932 1 Shilling

9: 1918 Half Penny

10: 1911 3d

11: 1928 3d

12: 1933 3d

13: 1961 1cent (coin seems to have a crack on it)

14: 1961 1cent

15: 1961 1cent

16: 1961 1cent

17: 1961 1/2cent

18: 1964 1/2cent

19: 1964 1/2cent

I would say 3,4,7 and 10 are the only coins worth listing. The others are too rubbed.Number 2 has a number of curls on the rim.

The silver coins like the 3d that are very rubbed are worth their weight in silver.

I would put close ups of the 4 I mentioned so that the coin guys can get a better idea of their condition and advise you re grading

13-19 are of very little value and can be listed forR5-R10

Hi thanks for the reply. I can't upload better quality pictures so here is a link to an upload on photobucket

The pictures were scanned at 600dpi so they should be a bit better now.

5: 1938 3d

6: 1942 3d

7: 1930 2 1/2 Shilling

8: 1932 1 Shilling

9: 1918 Half Penny

10: 1911 3d

11: 1928 3d

12: 1933 3d

13: 1961 1cent (coin seems to have a crack on it)

14: 1961 1cent

15: 1961 1cent

16: 1961 1cent

17: 1961 1/2cent

18: 1964 1/2cent

19: 1964 1/2cent

 

These are just my estimates for what they would sell for on Bid-or-Buy (your pictures are not very clear so I want to stress that these are only estimates)...

 

1: 1855 1 Penny - R10

2: 1899 Half Penny - R5

3: 1957 2 1/2 Shilling - Less than R75

4: 1941 2 1/2 Shilling - if not XF then less than R100

5: 1938 3d - R10

6: 1942 3d - R10

7: 1930 2 1/2 Shilling - in the condition in your pic maybe R100

8: 1932 1 Shilling - R40 in that condition

9: 1918 Half Penny - R5

10: 1911 3d - R10

11: 1928 3d - If in that condition maybe R15 but a scarce coin in higher grades

12: 1933 3d - R15

13: 1961 1cent (coin seems to have a crack on it) - R1

14: 1961 1cent - R1

15: 1961 1cent - R1

16: 1961 1cent - R1

17: 1961 1/2cent - R1

18: 1964 1/2cent - R1

19: 1964 1/2cent - R1

 

Kind regards

Thanks Pierre

 

I uploaded some better quality pics of the half crowns on photobucket

 

Untitled.jpg picture by pretoriushj - Photobucket

 

All the 3d coins were extremely worn down and I would say that 60% of the coin surface is smooth, the 1911 3d is a bit worn on one side but the side with George V on it could pass for XF and the other is "Good".

The half crowns are all a little bit smooth in the centre of each coin with the 1930 one having a slight raised surface, which I find a bit odd.

Please say if you would like better pics of the other coins and I will upload that to photobucet as well.
