My strong familiarity with all U.S. Mint coins, extensive reference library, and close relationships with many other dealers allows me to identify just about any coin made in the USA. I receive regular updates to all the current price guides -- both wholesale & retail -- to provide accurate values. So, with a good description or pictures, I should be able to identify and value any U.S. coin you have.
I've been a coin dealer since the 1980's and a coin collector since the 1960's. I specialize in U.S. Silver Coins and have an active online website -- The Working Man's Rare Coins -- http://www.workingmancoins.com -- offering information and inventory in U.S. coins.

Two Headed Coins are not Real! They are privately manufactured novelty items, made by altering two normal coins and gluing the pieces back together.

These novelty coins sell regularly for a couple dollars.

Hi Monica, Thank you for the pictures. This is not any kind of coin from the U.S. Mint. It is something privately made -- some type of medal. Check the edge for some kind of marking that may indicate
Hi Carmen, Thank you for your question. If it's a nice looking coin, and you like it, then keep it. However, there were over 215 million of them minted, so it will never be considered rare or valuable
Hi Joaquin Thank you for the pictures. This is what's known as strike doubling, or die erosion doubling. It happens when the dies get used for a long time and start to wear out. The metal around
