Re: Grading help for 1883H Canadian 5 cents

F15. Too many issues to go VF. Not a pretty coin.

Re: 1917, 1918 and 1919 5 cents...?

1917 VF+
1918 VF
1919 F

Unfortunately all harshly cleaned and therefore not much numismatic value.

Re: Looking for grade on 1885 dime

Given is was found in ground that would explain strange coloring and characteristics of a cleaning (albeit natural). Luckily no evidence of corrosion/pitting. Too bad it wasn't a T5 - a rarer variety by a factor of at least 4:1 compared to the T4.

Re: Really NGC?

I suppose enough time has gone so I will now tell you all. AU55

As most of you correctly assessed. Should have been no higher than EF40.

All I can say once again is; Fraudulent TPG is a real threat to the hobby. Buyer beware.

Really NGC?

This coin was graded by NGC. Anyone care to guess what grade was assigned?

1890H

I've been absent for a while. The subject coin was graded by NGC. All I can say is that this is probably a case of an improper grade being assessed to a coin by virtue of its relative rarity. Although as we all know NGC is just plain fraudulent anyway. The pressure to overgrade a rare coin by TPGs i...

1896 T5 10 Cents Production Flaw

I've see this type of flaw on Victorian dimes now and then - mostly on the reverse side, as in the case pictured below. Seems as though it is a planchet flaw as the strike passes thru the rings. If anyone has some thoughts on what exactly causes this, I'd appreciate your insight. Please see images.

Re: 1936 Canadian 50 cents

Some slight wear on high points and a couple rim dings. Coin has seen some very brief circulation but overall appears to be a very nice example. Agree with Bill, it is definite AU (Would have to have it in hand or have better pics to determine if it is deserving of 55). Cheers, RD
