Prices are set by supply and demand. There are infinitely more coins out there (and for the next 50-60 years) than there ever will be collectors wanting any. Higher grade cents will have some numismatic value, but there is no correlation to the alloy recovery program.
There are any number or varieties for 1881 that have multiple letters appearing to be doubled. A great deal of it is MD, but many letters were also repunched by hand. The value of a coin such as yours will depend on the amount of offsets and the number of letters involved. They normally carry a a pr...
Your 1/2 sovereign has .1177 troy oz of gold in it. You can sell it at any coin show or many jewelry stores. You should be able to get about 80% of the world gold price, which is today about $1210 ... so .8 X .118 X 1210 = about $114 US. It may be a little less, because the solder on there would inc...

On this same site, but a different section, is a "buy, sell, trade" forum. You can post your images there. Just go to the "buy, sell, trade" forum and hit "new post". You will see a link above the message that says "img" .. that is where you would attach your ...
I didn't say anything about "brass corrosion" .. I said that cleaning agents oxidize the bronze and give it a yellow tinge. I have seen 100's like this with yellowish hints .. all from cleaning. I have nearly 5,000 Vicky large cents and over 1000 of them are 1859's. I also helped write the...
No, it's not brass. It has been cleaned at some time in it's life ... maybe more than once. Any yellowish tinge that you see is to to any number of under-the-kitchen-counter cleaning agents that oxidize the bronze and turn it mildly yellow. A coin that old and that circulated would normally be cover...
Not much to say. It's the most common Canadian coin minted before 1916 and it may be less than "G-good" condition which is nearly right at the bottom of the grading chart. Keep it as an oddity or give it to a youngster. I use coins in better shape than that for golf-ball markers. The 1859 ...
From the photos, it's hard to tell.... blurry focus. Try to get the entire image of the Obverse and Reverse fully into the frame .. and strait perpendicular down. I can't be at and angle or tilt. It's well worn, so try to magnify the portion that you think sets it apart from a normal one.

Who called it a teardrop? It looks like a rust pit/chip in the die.
For the '93's, look for dates with the digits close together and you can find 4 different repunched 9's and a couple R/P'd 3's. The last 2 digits were all handpunched into the working dies .. lots of spacing differences.
