Re: 1968 variety?

To me it looks like it's the lighting and toning that's playing with the eye... Well Shylo you are correct! The coins arrived, and they all bear a standard 8. It was just a matter of light and angle and such. I fully agree that it its a peculiar concept, but I know at least the one instance exists....

Re: 1968 variety?

That is quite a fairy tail that seller has. Just how would a 69 be converted to a 68? Also there would be no reason to even if it was possible, as there were over 170,000,000 minted between the RCM and Philadelphia Mint so an extra couple of thousand would make no difference. Hard to tell from the ...

1968 variety?

Hello All! I was wondering if I could pick everyone's brain about this coin. I will post a better picture when I receive the item - I waited until I had won the listing on ebay and have posted a screen grab from saidting - but the coin in question is front and center. The curiosity is the 8 in the d...

Re: $5 1972 RS

Hi shunter, Quite the estate you must have been put in charge of! Below is a pic I snapped from the Charlton catalogue of Canadian Government Paper Money. While I'm not in any position to try and give you its grade, I can say that your best bet is to get this professionally graded by a third party g...

Re: 1967 Coin Oriented Dollar

Could be, but you don't know if he took out the coin and reversed it. Very true. On the plus side - and what made me think the seller didn't know what they had should it really be a 180 - is it didn't cost me more than any other '67 set, and it wasn't advertised as being anything special. I'll keep...

Re: 1967 Coin Oriented Dollar

Do you mean the item is in coinage alignment, rather than medal? It's all due to the reverse die rotating .. just like the diving goose is 45 degrees off. Any rotation less than 15-20 degrees mean nothing and no premium. A full 180 degrees out (coinage) is quite rare and about a dozen found so far ...

1967 Coin Oriented Dollar

Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone had any information on the 1967 coin oriented silver dollars. Scarcity, known in existence, etc. A few quick google searches hasn't turned up much, and in all fairness (and shame) I do need to go pick up a Charlton catalogue. I only ask because I am 99% sure I...

2016 50 cent dot - 3 varieties

So today I unwrapped one of two rolls of 2016 fifty cent pieces I ordered from the mint, and in the course of going through them came across three different dot varieties. I only found one of each, so if anyone else looks through theirs and finds one I would love to hear to know that it wasn't just ...

Re: Any ideas on stain/residue on 2016 50c from mint?

Hi Just wanted to comment that I had a stain on one coin at the end out of 2 rolls as well. Not as bad as yours, one spot on the coin about a 1/4" round. Looks like blue dye from the wrapper perhaps. Tee Well curiosity got the best of me! I opened the roll, and it was only the ones on the end,...

Any ideas on stain/residue on 2016 50c from mint?

Hey everyone, So I ordered two of the 2016 special wrap 50 cent rolls and they came in today. One looks normal, but the second one seems to have some kind of black/dark blue stain on both coins on either end of the roll. I tried to wipe it away with just a lens cleaning cloth, but it didn't remove a...

1973 PL, LB Set - Sell the set, or just the quarter?

Hey all, So recently I finally lucked out on ebay while trying to find myself a large bust 1973 quarter. I spied a Buy It Now listing of the proof like set, three available, only a photo of one of the three as an example and it appeared to be the real deal. I ended up buying all three to guarantee g...

Die crack on 2016 Commemorative Right to Vote loonie

Has anyone else noticed this? My girlfriend and I each got our 5 pack of the new commemorative loonies in the mail today, and in each pack there are at least 3 with the same die crack. Looks like it travels across the top of "Des Femmes" along with on either side of the bottom of the G in ...

Re: Help on a bulk lot price

Hey Bill, He said they are mostly Canadian with a few American in there, easily 95% Canadian. He didn't know off hand how many rolls he had, but I'm waiting to hear back from him on that one. Thanks for the inherent tip also with the book-value, wallet comment. Got me thinking I may need to brush up...
