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...

Re: 1974 die shift error

Looks like Machine Doubling to me.
Not really considered an error as it is
part of the minting process.

Re: 1967 proof like sets

Those are aftermarket envelopes.
The RCM had plain envelopes and included a certificate.

Re: 1952-2002 P Penny with Doubling on dates

Welcome to the forum.
Agree with Bill.
DDD is not recognised as an error.
You have a regular cent with circulation wear.

Re: 1967 proof like sets

For 1967 there were many aftermarket sets issued to celebrate
the Centennial. Some in cases, cardboard and plastic. I have
about six different variations myself including one made special
for the USA. It is probably one of those aftermarket sets.

Re: My two George VI coins!

You had me a bit puzzled over your second Nickel when you said it was celebrating 100 years of the RCMP, that was in 1973 long after King George had died. Then when you said it had a housing district with 3 Maple Leaves, I realised it was the Commemorative Nickel coin you were referring to. (That is...

Re: RCM Proof Set Holders

Simple, they were made to remove.
Turn case over so Queens head faces up.
On the right hand side of the plastic case
you will see two little grooves. Place a small
screwdriver in there and pop the case out.
It snaps back in just as easily.

Re: Another 1937 $1

There are two varieties of the 1937 One Dollar,
Narrow Signature Panel and Wide Signature Panel.
What you have is a Wide Signature Panel.

Re: Magnetic Shiny 1964 Penny

It looks to me like that CENT has some sort of bezel on it.
You should be able to slide something under it between it and the coin
It has been plated to give it a silver colour and probably used in some form of jewelry

Re: 1937 $1

As you probably know, what you have is a Narrow Signature Panel Banknote. The book value for a regular B/A note in F-VF is $35-55.00. For a 4 digit Radar Note, all the book states is "Extremely Rare" which usually means that there have not been enough of them sold to set a price on. Maybe ...

Re: defining Specimen vs. Proof-like coins

Depends on what year you are referring.
Specimen Finishes vary. Can you post a picture
or at least describe what coin you are referring to?
You don't really give a lot of information to go by.

Re: 1976 Olympic silver 28 piece folder/stamp

That's too bad about the binder.
It probably would ha be been worth more with it.
At least now you know where it originated, I had
never see n or heard of it before.

Re: Banknote GUNC grading

Sorry but that note would not make a GEM UNC grade as it does not have near perfect centring.
By looking at the picture of the front only, it would probably grade at CHOICE UNC.

Re: 1976 Olympic silver 28 piece folder/stamp

I agree with Bill that those should be worth more than melt. I have a Volume II Charlton but there is no listing for them in there. Instead of a coin collector, I would say that perhaps a stamp collector might have more interest in them as they do appear to be First Day Covers. Perhaps put them on k...
