Re: Canadian bank notes

Why would you pay money to get them appraised when there's people on here that would be happy to do it for free.

Re: Nickel sets

The 1858 - 1901 will do well on their own if they're vf or better... 1902-1910 / 1910-1920/ 1922-1936 et. al. ... I would just keep these in as a group... unless they're EF - AU or better. Most of the coins I have seen in this date range are usually fine and they move as a group.. if you sell one fr...

Re: Error 2005 Canadian Toonie, Middle Planchet Punched Nickel

Unless this was certified... this coin has 11' pole written all over it.

My understanding of the process of how the inner core is placed and stamped inside the outter core to create the inner rim, leads me to believe that either my understanding of the process is wrong or this coin has been altered

Re: Old corroded Canada Token? Can you Identify It?

to me the image looks like 3 shields at E, S & W with a crown at the N and a center design of something but of what I'm not sure.

as for cleaning it... I would recommend using vasoline and a toothbrush... might be able to loosen and get some of that corrosion and crud off.

Re: Old corroded Canada Token? Can you Identify It?

I think bill is onto something... it's not Canadian that's for sure... the second I saw it I thought it might be a 1 or 2 ore from sweeden. I have a feeling this is copper but place of origin I'm not exactly sure of...

try on google for a reverse image search and see what pops up

Re: 100 notes

Totally agree.... the biggest issue with larger notes is that you can lose a lot of money and have a lot of money tied up.... Most $1000 notes go for $1300 - $1500 at auction.... Given that the last $1000 note was issued in the 80's if the money had been invested with a rate of return of 5% per year...
