Description: 

What are your old coins and gold or silver jewelry worth?

How do you know what your collections are worth?  Dave Ekstrom, a lifelong coin collector, member of the American Numismatic Association, and retired school teacher will offer a presentation on coin collecting and gold and silver values. What are wheat-back pennies worth? How about old silver dollars? What is a pennyweight of gold?

The presentation runs about 35 minutes, and you will also have an opportunity to have up to three of your coins and gold or silver items (not including gemstones) appraised for free after the presentation. Museum admission rates apply; free for Historical Society members.
