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...

Re: Grading of 1911 quarter

Acetone will not harm your coin...

Soak in acetone, then rinse with clean acetone.

Use only glass (DO NOT USE PLASTICS) to hold the acetone and the coin.
Do it in a well ventilated area with absolutely no source of flame, sparks or ignition switches.

Re: Grading of 1911 quarter

Looks like it's in fine condition but on the reverse there looks like there's some green PVC damage to the coin.....

I would suggest you give it a soak in acetone and then a rinse with clean acetone to try and get rid of the PVC residue.

Re: canadian paper dollars

On this site there's an image that shows the difference between the devils face and modified. You can use that for a comparison. Or if you have a charlton catalog you can look at the prefix on the notes to determine if they're devils face or modified.... Sorry but the pictures are too hard for me to...
