Re: Substantial Coin and Bank Note Collection For Sale

Substantial Coin and Bank Note Collection For Sale

Hello. I (Richard/Rich) have been a collector of primarily Canadian coins/tokens and banknotes (Chartered Bank, DoC, BoC) since the mid 1970s. Over the next couple years I will be selling a vast majority of my collection. As an example of what is available, the collection comprises a large quantity ...

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.
