Re: 1859 One Cent

It was called a "narrow 9", when the numismatic community (and Charlton) gave the DP#2 name to what was already called a "wide 9" ... the ill-named "wide 9" was one of the 13 different types (varieties) of the 1859/8, where they overpunched 1858 working dies with a fat,...

Re: Lucky find 1870 Quarter

I do not collect Victoria silver, so I am by no means anything other than a newbie as far as the coins go. I HAVE attended a few seminars on fakes/counterfeits so I'll just show a photo of a real one. I do know that there are fakes out for the 1870 and one of the first places to look is right at the...

Re: 2007 Nickel Strike through, die break, both?

The magnification is too high to see anything. The 2nd photo looks like PMD, but who know?

Re: 1859 One Cent

It's a narrow 9 (normal, common) but, if you show the whole Obv & Rev, we may be able to tell you more (such as variety, etc)

Re: 1982 & 1983 United Kingdom uncirculated set

The Brit coins look like abl=out $4.50 to 6.00 for each set that actually sold. You should keep them or give them to a young kid to peak their interest in coinage.

Re: 1982 & 1983 United Kingdom uncirculated set

Can't help you, as this is a Canadian forum, but I'd say that the sets are very common and inexpensive. The best way to find out is to go to Ebay and key in UK or British set .... using the title on the top of your holders (or the important part/words, including the date). Once your search comes up,...

Re: 1907-1945 dimes

This is a Canadian coin forum but we can help. There is no way to be able to grade/evaluate your coins with the given photography. It appears that almost all are very common coins from the mintages, so your buffs may be worth 15-25 cents or so each. The dimes would be scrap silver or about 70-80 cen...

Fake 1921 5 cent

There's a guy trying to sell a fake 1921 5 cent in your buy/sell section... don't bite on it. It is so abviously a counterfeit that it's laughable.

Re: For Sale KEY DATE 1921 Canada Five Cents

If the RCMP or the local police are reading this thread, I would expect a knock on your door soon. It is against the law to evn possess one of these fakes, let alone trying to sell it and claiming that it isn't a fake. You found it, it was free. Go ahaead and spend $50 to have it authenticated and y...

Re: For Sale KEY DATE 1921 Canada Five Cents

Then the guy who had the old furniture had the fake. Just look at the 2 and the final 1. Look at the coin/price guide on this site and look at the digits on a REAL 1921 from the museum. The 1921's have been heavily faked for the last 30-40 years.
