Re: would you call this a uncirculated coin in this condition

The coin seems to have considerable contaminant on it. As most of you are aware, in the 1800's and first half of the 1900's many people had a great distrust of the banks so they would put money in cans or sacks and bury it in the ground. The lack of luster could be the result of a chemical reaction ...

Re: Help me identify my $1 Canadian bank notes

Hello Mike, Were these notes in a brick (Bought with the mint seal around all 100 - $1.00 notes) or were they loose? Did you put them in the plastic bags like the 8300099 note is in? If yes, get them out of there as fast as possible and put them in proper bank note sleeves. I know that I am very fus...

Re: Interesting Devil's face bill

Wow Samuel, where did you ever get an estimate of approx C$500. Firstly, even if you use Charlton's guide for an off cut $10 Unc it would be a max of $125. This note at best if a G although some might push it to a VG. The VG depreciated value is 15% of that or $18.75. Unfortunately there is little o...

Re: 1972 $5 Canadian Banknote Value?

Unfortunately your note is not a replacement note with an asterisk in front of the CA. To be worth more money it should look like: " * CA4653547 " Your note appears to be an UNC so in theory the $5 note you have is worth $28 according to "Trends". That is what you might get if yo...

Re: 1954 $1 without Devil's Face Lawson-Bouey C/I VF

Sorry to disappoint you but your $1 is NOT WORTH $20,000. Your bank note prefix is C/I To be worth $20,000 you must have an asterisk in front of the C/I and look like " * C/I " However the note does have a small printing error as you indicated at the lower left corner. This could add a sma...

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...
