Re: 1871H Quarter

On an Obv 1, the right end ribbon is off center to the RIGHT. On an Obv 2, the right ribbon end is off-center to the LEFT.

Re: Canada 1913 Large Cent - Error ??

Without seeing it in-hand, it looks like glue or some substance got on the coin, maybe even molten metal. It does not look like an error; just post-mint damage.

Re: how can i add images to this sites price guide?

I've sent a few coin photos to here over the years, but nothing in the last 3-4. I forget what I had to do. I think maybe that I sent an email to the admin/moderator? I'm getting too old to remember.

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...

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...
