There are 4 possibilities:
1. Your coin has no mint mark under the date, and no letters "V.D.B." on the back. It's worth a couple of dollars.
2. It does not have a mint mark, but DOES have the letters on the back. It's worth 6 or 7 dollars.
3. It has an 'S' mint mark, and no letters on the back. It's worth $60 to $100, depending on condition.
4. It has both an 'S' mint mark AND the letters on the back. It's worth $500 to $1000, depending on condition.
However, there are many counterfeits of the 'S' mint coins, so it's best to have it inspected by a certified dealer if you do have one.
