While this may not provide specific values for each of your coins, it will give you a good idea. If anything, purchase two separate coin value books and compare appraisals.Step 2Get references for prospective appraisers/buyers. Talk to fellow collectors and get input on the most honest buyers.Step 3Visit several appraisers, which can be found either in a phone book/Internet Yellow Pages or through fellow collectors and other contacts.
