Re: 1901 50 Cent Canada / Grade?

I did a quick comparison of your coin to a counterfeit 1901 - 50 cent coin I bought from a Saskatchewan Web Auction last summer. Yours does not have the same marks or lack of details that my counterfeit coin has. I also had the metal in mine analyzed. There was no silver in mine. If you are worried ...

Re: 1858 Cent Grade Help

Yes I agree VF20, however the damage could affect what you get for the coin should you try to sell it.

Re: Another NGC Grading Masterpiece

Based on the wear on the centre diamond (the key point), around the eye, mustache and chin, I would give it a VF30.

It has less wear than a VF20 might would have but a little more then a EF 40 I think.

It is nowhere near AU let alone AU 58.

Just my thought.

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...
