Re: Unicorn's head different on one of my 64 half dollars

You can take what pginrh posted in this thread to the bank. He is the Canadian 50 cent guru and wrote the variety section for Charlton. In addition, he has extensive research material and hundreds of varieties outlined in pages and pages of information on the halves.

Re: 1 cent 1858 - 160 Degree Rotated Die

As I posted on another forum, it is my opinion that, on the Obverse, the "A" in Regina and the "V" in Vicky should be on the same horizontal line. That would make the rotation about 170+ degrees, or almost 180 degrees. Either way I would think that a TPG should consider it a "coinage" rotation.

Re: Help Making a purchase

I plugged in the ID number into google and got the listing. He seems to use kijiji just like Ebay. The seller has been going for 8 years and has pages and pages of offerings. He has a reply rate of 87% on his listings, so maybe you are the other 13%. I would try to bid on one of his other items and ...

Re: 1950 - 1$ silver

Don't trash it .. it's .800 silver, so there's .6 troy ozs of silver in there for scrap. Silver is 17.55 US today, so it's worth more than $10 US .. a dealer might give you 9.

Re: Appraisal

What do you mean by "money appraised"? Do you want coins certified? Do you want to know what coins similar to yours have actually sold for? Do you want to know what the "book price" of your coins are?

Re: I see some not impressed with NGC

This is a Canadian Coin Forum. I'm not too sure that many folks her are up to snuff on US cent errors/varieties. Each of the respected TPG's have slightly different grading standards with more weight given to certain aspects of any coin (fields, luster, cameo, dings, cleaning, etc). Did you pay for ...

Re: 1948 Canada Silver Dollar ICCS MS-62 Key Date

The 1948 dollar is the most "copied" Canadian dollar by the Chinese and buyers need to be very sure of what they are buying. The me, the "I's" (that's "eyes, not "L's) on the Obverse are questionable, but the coin needs to be seen in-hand. The different shaped serifs on the I's are one of the marker...

Re: 1945 Canada Silver Dollar ICCS MS63 Key Date

I have removed the post I made last night about the 1945, after going back over things this AM. I was basing some of my opinion on the appearance of the nose. OOPS, sorry ... in going back and forth between the CaC photo for the 1945 dollar and the coin that you have up for sale, I got the 2 transpo...

Re: 1945 Canada Silver Dollar ICCS MS63 Key Date

In my opinion, it may be a fake. Just look at the "5"! If there was any way to check the ICCS numbers, then you should. Canadian dollars are frequently copied by two large makers in China and they are getting very hard to ID.
