Re: Is this worth sending in for grading

You would be wasting your money to get it graded.

I have sold many of these in the $10 to $25 range.

Grading will cost approx $12 - $15.

Furthermore collectors prefer ungraded "Shin Plasters".

Re: 1987 proof set

If asking for help with respect to marks, errors, oddities, etc., it REALLY, REALLY helps if you post a picture of all that you are asking about.

Although we have some great, experienced and knowledgeable people on this site, it's hard to work blind with some things.

Please post a picture.

Re: 5$ bill 1987 #GOV315...

Sorry to disappoint you, however your $5 is only worth $5. The ones that are worth more money are ONLY the 20,000 banknotes with S/N's between 7180000-7200000. All other S/N's are basically worth $5.00. If possible, whenever you or anyone has a query about a banknote or coin please try to post a pic...

Re: 2007 Extra metal nickel

I agree with both Bill and Coinguy. This is post mint.

It's hard to tell from the pictures and I don't know if it is my imagination, however the blobs almost seem to have a dark greenish black edging.

It almost looks like a dark epoxy glue.

Just my 2 cents worth.

Re: 1954

Nice find. Based on the pictures the note appears to be an AU. It is not an uncirculated note, although some people would try and say it is. All 4 corners are not square. Charlton's list the value at $400, CoinsAndCanada have it at $500, however depending on who you may try to sell it too you will n...

The book sells for $99.95. NOTE: this is not the regular bank note book that sell around $35. Based on the information you pro...

Re: 1935 $100 French

Personally I would not bother to get it graded. The majority of collectors that I know and sell to prefer ungraded notes . I prefer ungraded. I am not sure what area you live in "coinme", however if you are in a major centre just take it to 2 or 3 dealers and ask their opinion. If you are ...

Re: 1935 $100 French

How nice to have. My dream is the 1935 ~ $500 in both French and English. Unfortunately the budget will never allow this privilege. Regardless of the book, I would think there would be at least a little bit of a premium even if the number is over 500. You may wish to contact Charlton's to ask if thi...

Re: Books on Grading

I finally saw the book.

"Guide for Grading Coins of Canada" by Andre Langlois.

It is EXCELLENT.

I believe one the executive from our Calgary Club has talked to Andre about buying a number of the books for our club members.

Just hoping he does it soon.

I WANT ONE.
