Re: ?PEI Coin

Grade would be "good 4" in my opinion...

Next time you want to "clean" the coin.. just give it a soak in acetone

Re: 1968 variety?

To me it looks like it's the lighting and toning that's playing with the eye... I had enlarged the picture pretty big and you can see that the 8 still does have some shape on the right hand side.. but exactly what's going on here I'm not sure... you're going to have to wait til it's in hand and then...

Re: Collecting Canada 50 cent coins

If I was you I would look at a custom jewler to see how much it would cost to be repaired.... if the price is reasonable then yeah I'd get it filled.. coin is already toasted with the hole

Re: Collecting Canada 50 cent coins

'37-'52 are absolutely loaded with a wide number of varieties. I really love the 50 cent coins myself. I missed closing the deal on an 1870 no LCW and still think about that coin on occasion. Zoel has a good number of varieties listed and hopefully Paul will chime in to let us know if there's anythi...

Re: 1972 Oversized Nickel

My guess is from left to right... normal nickel .... "enlarged nickel" then a quarter... The beaver doesn't have much detail on it anymore but that could just be the photo or wear... But looking at the "D" in Canada and the S in Cents I can definitely say there is some level of d...

Re: Value of a series of1973 $1 bills uncirculated

$6... sorry but they're super common


Went to the bank less than a few months ago and the teller put aside over $100 all UNC and many consecutive numbers... but I doubt they would sell for anything much above face...

Re: 1922 Nickel with dot

I believe the dot to be the result of a die chip. Personally I have seen some "dots" generate a premium and then others I see as sellers just trying to drum up some excitement. Your best bet... take it to your local LCS and see what they would offer you for it.. then list it up on ebay as ...

Re: How do I effectively scan coins in coin protectors?

My first suggestion is get the coin out of the 2x2! They're cheap and if you're scanning or taking a picture of your coin you'll almost always get a better quality image if it's out of any container. I don't use cotton gloves... for a few reasons... I don't like "lint" or the thought of th...

Re: TPG Competency

So many topics you've touched upon .... #1 ICCS grades a coin a whole lot different than PCGS, NGC or ANACS #2 with ANY grade you're usually only getting an "opinion" (PCGS does guarantee their grade however within 10K dollars) #3 over the years certain companies have changed their grade s...

Re: Oddity? Thoughts?

I am not an error specialist by any means but looking at this coin my spidey senses are tingling and not in a good way. There's a LOT of things going on with this coin that I can't explain other than PMD. It looks like the coin has a rim edge on it... but then there's metal extruding from the rim ed...
