Without seeing it in hand, I'd say machine/mechanical doubling. In the nanosecond after the die strikes, it slightly moves as the die retreats from the planchet. It is corrected by tightening up the holder/keeper that holds the die in place. Pretty common on old Vicky large cents, but new presses ma...

As I answered on another site. Don't waste money grading. It's die deterioration doubling and the coin will be worth no more than a few cents.

Almost yearly, ICCS is losing market share to PCGS ... mostly from higher-end collectors. For coins that are generally going to stay in Canada or sold primarily to Canadian customers vis Ebay or coin shows, ICCS does very well .. .mostly because of price to grade. They have refused to enter the 21st...

Yes, they are melting for scrap the Olympic coins. I have never seen the set that you have, with the stamps. I wouldn't sell it to a dealer only offering scrap ... take it to a coin show where there is a choice of dealers or put it on Kijiji .. Ebay takes a large slice. Go to the library and look at...
Whether it's coins or antiques or anything collectible ... NEVER accept an offer from the person that you asked to "evaluate" it. The only thing that you should get from them should be an estimate and then store that information into your grey matter.
Don't believe anything that came out of B;ais's "book". He was a manager at Ebay and would compare prices for a certified coin with how many showed up on Ebay. His prices for "modern" stuff was ridiculous ... don't believe them. So, if a modern cent or nickel or dime showed up wi...
I still have no idea what is being referenced here. Are you talking about the distance between the bead and the rim? And I still have no idea how to ascertain what is the Northernmost or Westernmost Are you talking about the beads that are 180 degrees to the "notch" at one of the 12 sides?

Was that in Canadian or US dollars? You paid close to full Trends for it. Usually you can get coins at shows or brick and mortar for 70-80% of Trends, unless it's a scarcity.
