Look on the front of the coin to see if there's a small mint mark letter below the date. It may be blank or there may be a D or S.

Numismedia lists the following approximate retail values as of March 2012.

No mint mark (Philadelphia):

Very worn condition - $0.20

Moderately worn - $0.50

Slightly worn - $3.22

Almost no wear - $5.75

Uncirculated - $13.20-$85 depending on condition

"D" mint mark (Denver):

Very worn condition - $0.63 Moderately worn - $1.04

Slightly worn - $5.73

Almost no wear - $33.60

Uncirculated - $62.40-$624 depending on condition

"S" mint mark (San Francisco):

Very worn condition - $0.25

Moderately worn - $1.15

Slightly worn - $5.18

Almost no wear - $16-$19.20

Uncirculated - $51.60-$572 depending on condition

These values are approximate from the best available sources. Values will change over time.
