Re: 1967 Dimes

Yes, drop them on a hard table from 1-2 inches above and listen to the ring of it. More silver will have a higher, sharper pitch.

Re: 1925 Struck Through Grease or Lamination Error?

I don't think struck through anything. It's Post-mint damage and will greatly reduce the price if sold.

Re: 1865 Newfoundland penny with d.p.6

I have both the original Griffin and monograph 1. It may be 601d, but who knows? Even at that, the GR601 varieties are only rarity 4 & 5, so not even close to rare. Don't send it to be cert'd... you'll lose money.

Re: 1865 Newfoundland penny with d.p.6

It looks like a repunch to me from the photo, but would have to see it in-hand to be sure. I don't remember this Newfie cent being discussed before on any coin site, but you should do a search of this site, CCF, Coin Talk, or the PCGS site. It is not worth sending it to a TPG. Unless you can actuall...

Re: “ die “ designs

If you just look at the early-mid century dies, you will see many with either a common Obv or Rev that were used over and over in different combinations. The dies were very time consuming and expensive to make, let alone makers with the skill tp actual make them. I don't think that there were "books...

Re: new ICCS website

False alarm. The 1858 specimen cent was not my friend's. His is just as nice, maybe better.

new ICCS website

I saw in a different forum here (conservation) that ICCS has a website now. Their page has an 1858 that looks extremely close to a friend of mine's 1858. Does ICCS have to have permission to put in a photo of someone else's coin?

Jim J ... You are hiding behind a new name for this site. I always loved your old name/moniker.

Re: Silver Dollars

Canadian silver after 1920 was .800. As such, each face dollar (makes no difference the denominations) contains .6 troy oz of silver. Yes wear, and the hour-to-hour world silver price changes constantly ... as does the US/CAD exchange rate. That's why dealers will usually only give 90% of scrap silv...

Re: Silver Dollars

Are the coins all US or Canadian? Makes a difference as to troy weight.
