Re: 1976 Olympic silver 28 piece folder/stamp

Yes, they are melting for scrap the Olympic coins. I have never seen the set that you have, with the stamps. I wouldn't sell it to a dealer only offering scrap ... take it to a coin show where there is a choice of dealers or put it on Kijiji .. Ebay takes a large slice. Go to the library and look at...

Re: quick to judge ??

Whether it's coins or antiques or anything collectible ... NEVER accept an offer from the person that you asked to "evaluate" it. The only thing that you should get from them should be an estimate and then store that information into your grey matter.

Re: 1964 dot over 9 common or rare

Don't believe anything that came out of B;ais's "book". He was a manager at Ebay and would compare prices for a certified coin with how many showed up on Ebay. His prices for "modern" stuff was ridiculous ... don't believe them. So, if a modern cent or nickel or dime showed up wi...

Re: New 2006 dollar variation

I still have no idea what is being referenced here. Are you talking about the distance between the bead and the rim? And I still have no idea how to ascertain what is the Northernmost or Westernmost Are you talking about the beads that are 180 degrees to the "notch" at one of the 12 sides?

Re: 1942 Georgivs VI Penny error?

There's a dark area through what would be the upper vertical section. Is there any evidence of something external knocking it off?

Re: ICCS certification numbers

As far as I've heard, it's entirely random and there is no set system/order in place .. or it hasn't been figured out yet anyhow

It doesn't look like the paper is original. Is it a "copy"

Re: 1912 $5 gold Canadian coin

Was that in Canadian or US dollars? You paid close to full Trends for it. Usually you can get coins at shows or brick and mortar for 70-80% of Trends, unless it's a scarcity.

Re: 1912 to 1914 gold Canadian coins

You should wait until the Spring Coin Expo in T.O. to do your shopping/trading. You can have your choice of more than a few dealers, see the coins in hand, and make your best deal. The 3 coins that you want are readily avalable.

There were 22 charter members there and I hope that this will fill a void for the Golden Horseshoe area collectors that have been without a club for about 15 years. Here's hoping that a few more join in the fun.... the 30 mile...

Re: 1859 cent

Thank you gidgit ... I had forgotten all about the guy with the $15,000 coin that was, in his eyes, a sure winner. See you at the inaugral Hamilton Coin Club meeting in a week?
