Regina Coins show Sat Apr 22 & Sun Apr 23

Anyone living in the Saskatchewan should try and visit the Regina Coin Show on Saturday April 22 and Sunday April 23/17. This is an excellent show. At the spring show we met some people who had driven from Winnipeg and northern Saskatchewan (over 700 KM). To prairie people, these are easy drives. My...

Re: error on 1995 Loonie

For everyone, whenever you have questions about errors on coins, PLEASE post a picture of both the obverse and reverse.

Also try and post them right side up.

Re: Really NGC?

Although I am good with bank notes, I am not too good and still learning with coins. Yet looking at this one I know that they would have looked at hair and ear on the obverse and crown on the reverse. As the hair and ear appear to show little wear on the obverse and the crown on the reverse has some...

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.
