What are my Savings Bonds worth?

My wife has some Series E savings bonds that were issued between 1970-1978 and given to her by her grandfather. She has 8 $25 and 1 $50 bonds. What are they really worth today?
All Series E (and EE and I, as well) Savings Bonds that are still earning interest will stop paying interest 30 years from the issue date. This means that some of the bonds you have have stopped earning interest and should be redeemed. You can also redeem all of them - you don't have to hold them the full 30 years.
You can use the Savings Bond Calculator on our web site to find out their current values.
