I have half dollars and dollar coins. Some are from early 1800's some are from the late 1800's. If I count each coin dollar for dollar and half dollar for half dollar, I have $3000. Just wondering where I would start to see the value

at least 3000 dollars if that is what the amount adds up to...  Maybe a hobby or collecting store.  A pawn shop may know as well but not sure.

Whatever you do, only bring in one or two coins in at first. Do not let the person know you have a lot of them until you feel comfortable and feel that they are fair.

Once you get the appraisal for the group get insurance on them.

Bring a very small sample to a reputable coin collector/buyer and get an estimate. Once you have an estimate, have them appraised and immediately have them insured.

Google for a coin shop in your area. You can also ask a local jeweler as they sometimes deal in coins as well. Only bring one of each for them to look at!

If you don't already, get a rider on your insurance for them! Unless you plan on selling them.

There are stores that specifically deal with coins....I'd look for one of those and start there.

Find a local coin shop. Silver dollars usually start around $20 in melt value alone, so you are sitting on a ton of money.
