Re: Doubling??? 1995 Canadian Dime

There are various forms of doubling of which only one carries a premium
and that is a Doubled Die. I'm not quite sure what is happening with yours as
the pictures are a little out of focus but it is not a DD

If you would tell us where you live, we might be able to direct to somebody

Re: 1859 cent

Looks like what they call a "woodie" caused by an improper mixture of the alloy.
Looking at the original picture, it doesn't appear cleaned.

Re: 1941 - 50 Cents - Mysterious Varieties

The back of the 1914 Charlton Catalogue is dedicated to 50 cent pieces
and it shows 4 different varieties for the 1941's.

That is the same listing you posted previously.
No need to post it twice. I'm sure if anybody was
interested, they already saw it.

Re: Clean

If your talking about the red fluff from the holder, it has probably permanently damaged the coins. You can soak them in distilled water for a while until the fluff starts to separate from the coin and then clean with a Q-tip to remove the loose fluff. But as I said, your coins will probably still h...

Re: Suspected Fakes on ebay

Not unusual for counterfeits to be sold on eBay.
Can you post the item ID (The 12 digit number at the top)
so we can take a look at it. There are 4 or 5 different
variations of the JOP signature.

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 ...
