The channel consists of a group of appraisal experts that regularly post videos on the account that highlight coins and other collector items.

What to look for

AppraiseItNow said that the coin to look for is a 1964 half dollar coin.

And like some other rare coins, this ones value stems from a minting error.

On this particular coin, it can be found at the bottom of the obverse side of the coin.

If the number “4” in 1964 features a small marking shaped like a tear drop hanging off the back of it, then you’ve got yourself a rare coin.
