I have an old world war II coin with a secret compartment in the middle that opens up when you push down on one of the letters on the outside edge.I also have lots of other rare coins and I wouldn't mind selling them.

These are the best of my collection.The big gold one with the traveller on it is my favourite. The coin with the hidden compartment on it is old,it says,'Napoleon III Empereur 1855' on the one side and ,'Empire Francais Dix Centimes' on the other side.

lol its just that over the years american 1 cent coins have changed in material, in the 1940s they made a batch of them out of only copper, so thye are worth insane amounts, but theres only 40 in the world dont bother.

I have probobly70 old coins from the thirties or less,and a copper penny from 1943 that has been valued at $50,000 because all the pennys,except a select few were zinc plated steel . I found mine taped to the inside of a desk someone threw away from the thirties .It was on the bottom of the desktop.

if you lived in the US, you could take your coins to the antique road show.

experts give you an estimate on the price then you decide whether or not u want to auction it off.

i saw some old indian artifacts go for $150,000 on TV

IN YOUR DREAMS.

The odds of you having that coin, are less than one in a billion. Only 40 of the pure copper penny were EVER made. and they are valued FAR higher then 50000, they are around 80000. Dream on, stop lieing. And they arent zinc plated steal they are copper plated zinc.
