The mintmark is on the obverse ("heads"), just above the date.
Assuming the MS-60 grade was provided by one of the national grading firms, its fair market value depends very much on what mint mark if any is on the back over the DO in DOLLAR. As of 01/2009, FMV is no mint mark or an "O": $34 "CC": $200 "S": $480
I just read about $42.00 is what a 1 oz fine silver dollar worth.
A genuine 1895-CC dollar could not exist because the Carson City mint closed in 1893, as a quick search of the Carson City website will tell you.Please check your coin again. Two possibilities are that it is an 1885-CC or 1895-O dollar that cannot be read clearly. In either case it is possibly genuine. You'll need to have it appraised in person; its retail value could be in the range of $250 to $600 depending on condition.If the date is truly 1895-CC, your coin is counterfeit. During the last couple of decades the market has been flooded with fakes, some with impossible dates and mint marks.If you don't see mint mark, it's probably Philadelphia mint (blank mark).To find out more about Morgan dollar mint and years, visit http://www.morgandollarsilver.com site.
The o and the s are mint marks, and indicate that the coin was minted at the new Orleans, or the San francisco mint. It should be just below the date on the front of the coin, and (for old eyes like mine) is small enough that it can be hard to read.
It's not a dollar, no dollar US coins were issued in 1906. The coin is likely a 1906 Barber Half dollar and if it has so much wear you can't read the words HALF DOLLAR on the reverse the value is just for the silver in the coin, about $12.00
Please read the denomination more carefully. It's a HALF dollar. The last U.S. silver dollars were made in 1935.
its fake according to ebay. There was never such a dollar coin made in 1906. These are forgeries from China from what I have read.
If the coin shows so much wear you can't read the date, value is only for the silver about a dollar
If the coin has so much wear you can't read the date, value is only for the silver about a dollar.
It's not a dollar, no dollar US coins were issued in 1906 the last year was 1904. The coin is likely a 1906 Barber Half dollar and if it has so much wear you can't read the words HALF DOLLAR on the reverse the value is just for the silver in the coin, about $6.00
August 15, 2009 There were no silver proof sets issued in 1979. The clad proof set sold for $9 in 1979. During the mintage year, the dies used to make proof coins were changed which resulted in 2 mint mark varieties: the "filled S" and the "clear S". The "filled S" mint mark appears inflated and difficult to read while the "clear S" is clear and easy to read. The "filled S" sets are valued at $10 today. The "clear S" sets are valued at $120 today.
