If the 1882 has a CC mintmark or the 1909 has an O, get it slabbed. Or if you feel that either will grade above MS-60. Otherwise, they are pretty common coins and probably not worth the extra expense.

What is the value of an BU 1878 CC Morgan Silver Dollar?

The BU designation does not mean much. It is best to have coins professionally graded. That being said, the Carson City silver dollars are a great mint and that is a good year. A "brilliant uncirculated" could mean a variety of grades, but should qualify for at least a MS60 and go up from there. An MS60 can fetch $210.00 and an MS65 can go for $1810.00 so you see, it's best to get the coin "slabbed," or graded by a professional grading service. This will cost about $100.00 and can be done through your local coin shop.

What is enclapsulated coin?

An encapsulated coin is a coin that is housed in a plastic container to prevent it from being damaged. Encapsulated coins usually refer to round containers that fit the coin closely, whereas a "slabbed" coin is a coin graded by a third party grading company and is in a long plastic container with the grade on it. However, I have heard people call a slabbed coin an encapsulated coin, however it is rare.

A William Henry Harrison "Golden" presidential dollar is worth about a dollar unless it's slabbed by PCGS or NGC at a very high rating (e.g., MS69 or MS70), or is Proof. A full roll of dollar coins includes 25 coins, not 12.

Is a 1799 draped bust silver dollar a fake?

Are there real 1799 draped bust dollars? Yes. Are there fakes out there? Absolutely. And the 1799 dollar is one of the most faked coins out there. There are even some bust dollars dated 1799 that are made out of the same composition and have the exact same weight, thickness and diameter of genuine coins. Any bust dollar is a rare coin and worth getting authenticated by a reputable dealer or grading company and slabbed before you buy it. Personally, if I was going to spend $1,000+ on a coin, I wouldn't mind the $50 expense to have it authenticated and graded for peace of mind and for ease of reselling.

US coins are usually graded on the Sheldon scale. The Sheldon scale grades coins from 1-70. A coin graded 1 is very, very, poor and is basically only identifyable by the size of the coin. A coin graded 70 is perfect with no defects at all. Most coins grade somewhere in between the two extremes.

1877 trade dollar?

Trade dollars are an interesting series of US coins, first BEWARE! There are many, many, many, many, many counterfeit coins out there. Personally I'd never buy a trade dollar unless it was slabbed by a reputable grading company (such as PCGS or NGC). But if you have one, you should first make sure that the details aren't "mushy" and that the design is 100% accurate, there are more fakes out there than real coins I've found. If it is genuine, and assuming yours has an "S" mintmark on the reverse (it is the most common Trade Dollar) it can be worth anywhere from $50 (well worn or heavily chopmarked) to $150 (near uncirculated)

What is the value of an 1865 Morgan silver dollar?

Ok, first it's not a Morgan dollar, that series of dollar coins started in 1878, with a date of 1865 the coin is a Liberty Seated dollar. For an accurate assessment of value the coin needs to be seen and graded. Assuming the coin is circulated, most coins show a lot of wear. In general retail values for low grade coins are $340.00-$450.00, better grade are $500.00-$1,000.00 and coins showing almost no wear run from $1,250.00-$2,400.00. Values are a market average and only for coins in collectible condition, coins that are bent, corroded, scratched, used as jewelery or have been cleaned have far less value if any to a collector or dealer.

What is the worth of a perfect condition 1963 Franklin half dollar?

Without more detail on the coin, it is hard to say what the value is. You need to know whether it is a business strike coin or a proof coin. You need to know the mint mark. A 1963 Franklin will have no mint mark or a D mint mark. You need to determine whether the coin would be considered to have Full Bell Lines (the 7 lines at the bottom of the Liberty Bell on the reverse side of the coin). Finally, you need to know the grade or approximate grade of the coin. Coins are graded on a scale of 0 to 70 with 70 being perfect. Coins are classified into mint state coins (coins that were minted to be put into circulation) and proof coins (coins that were minted for collectors). A perfect mint state coin would be an MS70 and a perfect proof coin would be a PF70. PCGS, one of the most reputable third-party coin grading services, has never graded a Franklin half dollar an MS70 or a PF70. Not to say that the "perfect" Franklin half is not out there, it just has not yet been graded. A 1963 Franklin half that receives an MS65 grade by PCGS would be worth $50. If the 1963 Franklin half received a MS65 Full Bell Lines, it would be worth $1,400. A 1963 Frankin half that receives a grade of PF68 is worth about $80. Coins that are graded and "slabbed" by a reputable third-party coin grading service are going to be more valuable than raw, ungraded coins. Therefore, to get a true picture of what your coin is worth, you need to find out a little about grading and determine the condition or grade of the coin.
