If your coin has the mirrored finish of a proof coin, it is a copy -- worth $12 at best for the silver it contains. If your coin is a regular business strike coin in uncirculated condition, it's worth about $150 As with any collectible, a primary consideration in determining it

If your coin has the mirrored finish of a proof coin, it is a copy -- worth $12 at best for the silver it contains. If your coin is a regular business strike coin in uncirculated condition, it's worth about $150 As with any collectible, a primary consideration in determining it’s value is it’s condition (or grade). Novice collectors, with some practice, can become quite accurate in determining grades for circulated coins (G-4 through AU-50). It becomes much more difficult when assigning grades for Uncirculated coins (MS-60 through MS-70) or Proof coins (PF-60 through PF-70) and the assistance of an experienced coin collector or trusted coin dealer should be sought. There are many Internet and printed resources in helping determine the appropriate grade for a coin. Whichever resource you choose to use, ensure that they follow the grading guidelines established by the American Numismatic Association. The following is a value range for the coin in question and is taken from the Numismatic News Coin Market Montly Price Guide for January 2007: VG8- $98.50 F12- $100.00 VF20- $110.00 XF40- $130.00 AU50- $140.00 MS60- $220.00 MS65DMPL= $830.00 DMPL = Deep Mirror Proof Like Hope this helps.
