It's at least worth 3 cents! Do you know what Capital C-12A means?

I don't know how reliable this site is, but here's one that gives the worth of several coins.

Wait, I think I found what your capital patent is, simply a patent for the holder of the penny. http://www.freepatentsonline.com/2998126.html

If the case is sealed, they're collector coins (numismatic). Are there some initials on the back? That would be the outfit that graded the coins. PCGS and NGC are the current coin grading services, but if they're pretty old there might be something else. If it's an openable case, what you've probably got is a commemorative mint set. That probably doesn't have much value. But you should be able to find a coin dealer in your area who can give you an appraisal of their value.

Thanks for doing that research, Kate. Wink

Have a look at the Blue Book of U.S. Coin Values. It the widely accepted wholesale price guide for U.S. Coins. The Blue Book price is generally the amount you can expect a coin dealer to pay you for your coins.
