If this is worth anything other than face value. I know nothing about coins, didn't even know I had this.

Do anyone of you know anything about coins, or maybe know if this is worth anything?

I found another one from 1890 ......

HHHmmmm.... the single C - I wonder if its a worn O.  Thats another possible mint mark, an S is the other possibility.

Hold onto that puppy. It's a collectors item.

I can't tell because it is really little, and apparently my eyes suck right now haha

ummmmmmm what is a proof?? LOL

Quoting grey7399:

Ok if you can't see both C's that'll degrade the quality.

But C C is Carson City. (I think thats what he said ) so that makes it $60 - $3000 but the $3000 is very unlikely, especially in worn condition.

And the other coin without a mint mark makes it significantly less.  $22 - $80 Just to tease you a little - if this coin had been a "proof" it would have been worth $30,000!!!!  lol

Quoting Army_Mom_2_Boyz:

Ok on the 1890 coin there looks like there is one or 2 C's underneath the wreath

On the 1922 coins I can't see anything underneath the ONE

Quoting grey7399:

Ok hubby says they're worth at least $27 in silver.  

He says its hard to put a guess on them by pictures unless the pictures are REALLY good and these aren't good enough.

As Dollars they are worth $22 minimum but he needs to know the mint marks and some other features.

The 1890 coin - where was it minted?  The mint mark is on the reverse under the wreath (he's cheating, he gave me his guide but he's making dinner!  hahaha!)  but he is guiding me.  PLEASE tell me its a C over C mint mark.....

What is the mint of the first coin as well?  That mint mark is also on the reverse below the ONE.
