Re: 1939 nickel

The photos aren't clear enough to tell if anything that you have is anything approaching MS due to wear. The dings & scratches alone make it AU-50 tops. Just being in the bag that you describe probably scratched any that may have been UNC and now would be AU. You would have a huge money loser if...

Re: 1941 5C deformed letters in CANADA

Something struck the coin and displaced the metal. The same whack hit both the D & the A.

Yes, I know about the 2014 Charlton and who actually wrote the variety section ... you. Just like I know who wrote the 2011 (65th edition) on Vicky large cents ... me and 3 others co-wrote because of the huge numbers involved.

Re: 2007 Extra metal nickel

You listed it as counterstamped and it isn't. You were trying to sell it as an error and it's been faked.

Yes a garage/vise/hammer job. More of these are showing up because they are being discussed on a number of coin sites and guys are going out to the garage and testing what a hammer job really is.
