Re: 1953 Nickel NSF Near

Unfortunately these photos are not the best, however I downloaded and enlarged them. As poor as they are, the coin does appear to be a NSF near. I am poor at grading coins, but I would guess it is no better then a VG, maybe less due do the bad surface gouges. The value will be poor. Bill and some ot...

Re: Generally speaking

Hi Terry, If you have a chance, you should try to visit the CNS Coin Show in Calgary on Sept 23 & 24. We hold it at the Clarion Hotel on 16th Ave NE between Barlow and Deerfoot Trail. It is the old Crossroads hotel if you knew it. You are only about 1 1/4 hours away from Calgary. In fact I flew ...

Lightw4re, please remove Here is Practical Explanation about Next Life

Lightw4re please remove the post about "Here is Practical Explanation about Next Life".

It has nothing to do with numismatics and is disrespectful to the efforts you put into making this a great information sight for coins, banknotes, tokens and related topics.

Re: What details to look for on these Can. dollar coins

Hello HB, What you ask is impossible in simple words or paragraphs. There are books that have been written about errors and varieties on a mixture of coins including the Canadian Silver Dollar. Have you not looked further into this website? Start under the Canadian Coins drop menu (at the very top l...

Re: 1 & 5 cents 1897

Very nice coins, the penny is a gem. Bill is correct, the 8 on the 5 cent is a large loop. The best way to see the large loop is to download the picture to you computer and open it with Windows Photo Viewer or some other photo program. For those not familiar with downloading a picture, simply right ...

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...
