Re: Canadian 1 cent coin

Looks like a dryer coin. Check out this long thread with lots of photos, as more dryer coins got posted.

Re: 1943 Tombac 5 cent coin

Is the date 1943 or 1944? And is it a coppery-yellow color?

Re: Mint Mark?

It means "plated", as in a thin coating on top of the base metal.

Re: Vintage (60's I think) collecting stuff

Yes, there is. Put them on Ebay.ca. An idea of how many/what you have would give us an idea of worth.

Re: Vintage (60's I think) collecting stuff

The coins from the 60's (til '67" were .800 silver, and most would sell for about scrap silver price .. about $9+ US or $12+ Cdn for the dimes thru dollars. We would need to see some pics of the coins to give you a bter idea or a count of each date/denomination.

Why is this forum site so daed?

I've been on here for over 10 years and it seems to get more stagnant every day. The reference pages are used by many collectors and the French (original) site is very active. What keeps folks from posting questions/queries on here? Come on guys and girls, lets talk things up a little.

Re: want to trade canadian coins for sacagawea dollar

You posted 2 weeks too late. I had a roll+ of Sac dollars that had been in the secretary for more than 10 years. We used to use them a "tip" money for drinks down in Cuba or the Carib. My wife just got back from the Bahamas and I had given them to her to use down there. There are none left.

Re: 1941 - 50 Cents - Mysterious Varieties

The variety section in the back of the annual Charlton's changes from year to year, by the decimal denomination or a subgroup by Monarch. The 1914 has the 50 cents.
