Re: Thanks Grandpa

Hello Beeny04, That was a nice gift from your Grandfather. Yes there is some value to what you have, unfortunately not a great value. It appears that some notes are circulated and some possibly uncirculated. The 1954 - $50 is very nice and has a nice serial number Try and avoid touching the possible...

Re: $2 Bill 1986 BUR Prefix

Your $2 note is worth $2.

BUR is a common prefix. You will find it listed in Charton's Cdn Government Paper Money Catalogue.

Yours is in such poor shape that I would return it to the bank unless you want a copy for the 1986 - $2 bird series.

Re: 1979 5$ Test Bill

Hello EJG, Sorry, the note is definitely not an EF or VF. It is possibly an F or at worst VG. Can't tell until it is actually seen and handled. You do have a potentially rare note even as a VG or F. I must admit that I am debating the merits of having it graded. Where are you located? Depending wher...

Re: $1 bill sequence numbering

Hi sbowman, Do you think you will have an opportunity to get to the Edmonton coin show March 10 and 11? I would definitely like to see that note. I know some others there would also be interested in seeing it. Did you get the PM I sent in January. How's the snow up north. Tons in and around Calgary.

Re: Lucky find 1870 Quarter

Thanks for your input Bill and Coinguy. I think it is actually a fake. I downloaded the linked picture, enlarged the photos and compared them side by side. The things I noted are: - the indentation at the bridge of the nose - C (in cent) is at an angle - the shape of the E and it's centre don't seem...

Lucky find 1870 Quarter

A friend of mine came across an interesting/amazing find (if it's real). Approx 2 weeks back he went to a MacDonald's in a Walmart store and ordered a hamburger. He paid with a bank note and got some change back. One of the coins felt different so he had a look and then showed it to his wife. She wa...

Re: Is this quarter worthy of collecting? Your opinion is welcome.

I would keep it as a unique piece to show to friends and collectors.

It might be worth something to a collector. The problem is just finding the right person. I just don't know what value to put on it.

Re: 1964 Dime

I think you have it right Richards. That Queens head started in 1990 Last year a friend and I thought we had a rare mule. We showed it to a few people. George Manz from Regina showed us it was a fake mule. Apparently someone had taken two coins, cut them in half and moulded them together. This could...

Re: $1 bill sequence numbering

Hi Showman, Thank you for posting the pictures. To give an accurate grade a knowledgeable person would actually have to have the note in their hands. Fortunately you took great pictures that make it easier to give a reasonable grading. I was able to blow it up for considerable clarity. Unfortunately...
