Value of 1847 penny

The message entitled Value of 1847 penny posted by Coin-Collecting.info on 12/12/02 18:44 in the large cents coin collecting value forum has now expired. Sorry for the inconvenience. However, here are some links to help you find the 1847 penny information you want, whether you are interested in selling, buying, or just learning more about U.S. large/eagle pennys.

The following are 1847 penny auctions currently running on eBay. These are live auctions. Click on any of the links for more information.

If there are no listings above, there may be no large cents available, or it could be a bug in the program. I recommend clicking over and searching for "1847 penny" or something more specific. The variety of coins, paper money, and tokens being auctioned every day on eBay is amazing.

If you're wondering how much your large cent is worth, i.e. the value of an early American one-cent coin minted between 1793 and 1858, these eBay auctions are one of the best ways to get a true sense of the going prices. (For help judging the condition of your large cent, click here.)

To sell your 1847 penny, you have two main options. The first is eBay or another online auction. Auctions have always been the best way to get the real value of your coins, without a coin dealer taking a cut. Selling on eBay (or eBay UK, eBay Canada, or eBay Australia) is easy. You just have to register, which is easy and painless.

The disadvantage of selling coins on eBay is that it can take some time, especially if you have more than one coin to sell. The fastest way to cash out is to sell to a coin dealer. One national dealer I know is Jake's Marketplace. They're good folks and they give fair prices. But you may prefer to find a local dealer.

By the way, before taking your collection to a dealer, you may want to get the most current and reliable price estimates for your coins. Invest the 10 bucks in this year's Black Book or Red Book Guide to U.S. Coin Values. They're both comprehensive, reliable sources for coin prices.

Have Fun!
