Like all coins, the value is based upon several factors: coin grade (condition): about good (AG), good (G), fine (F), very fine (VF), extra fine (EF), almost uncirculated (AU), uncirculated (Unc) and proof - the better the grade, the more the value. mintage (how many were made): usually lower mintage coins are worth considerately more that high mintage coins. mint mark: the marking, or lack of marking, on a coin that corresponds to where it was produced (D=Denver, S=San Francisco, P or blank=Philadelphia, etc.). market: coins are like any product; some types are more valuable or collectible at more times than others, depending on the market demand.
