Re: Looking for advice for 1989 25 cent coin

It's called "Environmental Toning" which can cover a broad range of things,
but one thing for sure is that it is not an error as it didn't happen at the mint.

Re: Need help

Probably so that anyone who collects varieties would know which it was.
It is listed in Charltons.

Re: Need help

The "S" they are referring to is the one in CENTS.
There are two varieties:
Near S, where the S is near to the rim.
Far S, Where the S is farther from the rim.
Value is about the same for both.

Re: 1885 Error Question

That wouldn't be an error. It is only an error if something happens during the time the coin is being struck. Looks to me like something has been added (solder?) to the reverse. Perhaps someone was going to make it into a piece of jewelry. To verify this, just weigh it. It should weigh 2.33 grams, a...

Re: Canada $1 Coins

Not quite sure how many a mess is but the ones with the most value would be certain King George ones. The Queen Elizabeth Silver coins don't sell for much above bullion unless they are exceptional and as Bill stated, the nickel ones don't sell for much above face value unless they are one of the rar...

Re: pic of messed up 1945 V nickel

Hafta agree with Bill on this one.
There are no errors on that coin, only Post Mint Damage which means the
damage was done after the striking of the coin.
It is only an error if it happens in the striking chamber before the coin is ejected.
Still a wartime nickel that can be kept.

Re: 1910 Canada 5 Cent round leaves cross over bow tie

It has to be either a 1910 Round Leaf Bow or a 1910 Pointed Leaf C/B. There is no such thing as a 1910 Round Leaf C/B. It is probably misattributed by the grading Co. Who was the grader and could you supply a photo of the complete reverse. It wouldn't be the first time a grader has marked the wrong ...

Re: 1965 Large bead proof

Both Large and Small Bead varieties came in the Cello Packs.
Not considered a Proof, they are known as Proof-Like.
As Bill says, not worth sending out. The cost of getting it graded
far exceeds the value of the coin.

Why?
There is no extra value to it, it is only worth 10 cents.

Re: 2016 Dime - Error or Not?

Looks like a partially grease filled die as opposed to a weak strike.
Not a Doubled Die on the "G".
Hard for me to tell about the die chips from picture.
If they are raised, then they are die chips.
If they are incuse, then it is damage.

Not a planchet error.
Been damaged after the coin was minted.

Re: 1952 WL Double HP Silver Dollar

There is a picture of a double 1952 Double HP in the 2012 Charltons Catalogue
It is known as Variety Obv.-003. Probably worth a couple of dollars more.

Re: My RCMP coin!!!

The fact that you said it was circulated means that it cannot be MS.
For info on grading, click on Canadian Coins on the heading and scroll down to grading.
Also wondering where you are from, you didn't say. Just wondering where you got all
these coins from.

Re: My RCMP coin!!!

There is no value in the 1973 quarters unless they are in MS63 or higher condition. There were over 135 million minted for regular circulation so they are not rare. A friend of mine had a whole roll she had accumulated when she was working at a store but I just advised her to take them to the bank a...
