Re: Pre-1966 Pennies

Thanks for the link Henry. By my understanding after reading it, I think it states that coins could be melted with a special permit and coins that are bent or defaced are not legal tender. Or did I read that wrong? You are correct. I should state that I’m from the United States and not a Canadian b...

Re: Pre-1966 Pennies

Here in the states I can buy them at less than face. The local coin shop sells them at .75 for the exchange rate now and then at a .8 after that.I think they are worth more in melt value than they are in numismatic value. See https://www.coinflation.com/canada/

Re: 1983-D US Penny?

I am far from an expert. But to me it looks like all post meant damage. But it sure is nice seeing this forum have a lot more activity. I have a son who has gone through thousands of rolls of cents If you click on the link on the bottom of this post it will show Franklin’s finds from coin counting m...

Re: any ideas

To me, it looks like something whacked it that had a round shape and an indent that made the "point" on the coin as it was hit. Definitely PMD. Thanks for the answer. With the Covid coin shortage down in the states we’ve been giving out half dollars instead of quarters and I’ve noticed it seems to ...

Re: any ideas

Is the "point" raised? It looks like, from the photo, that there is a larger "crater around the "point" and inside your red circle. Can you provide a clearer, photo without the red circle?

See https://abcnews.go.com/Nightline/video/extreme-penny-hoarders-hope-cash-15077826 . We were told my son would not walk are talk when he was youn...
