1983 Lincoln cent copy made with error; Only about 5,000 people are known to have it.

6 – A 1982 coin with Roosevelt’s face does not have a letter indicating where it was struck. For example, those printed in Philadelphia should have the letter P, those in Denver the letter D, and those printed in San Francisco the letter S.

These coins lack these letters and hence their value is higher. These coins range in value from $30 to $50.

7 – 2007 dollar coin, called President. In some of these coins, the letters found on the sides of the coin are missing.

These coins can be worth anywhere from $50 to $3,000.

Check your pockets, purses and drawers as you may have one or more of these coins in your possession.

It is recommended to review them with a magnifying glass, then take them to a numismatist (coin) to determine if this is one of the error coins and confirm the value.
