Re: 1900 large cent

It's been plated after it left the mint.
You can see where it is starting to wear off.
No extra value.

Re: Canadian silver 5 cent collection

Sorry freegirl, but that is not a Doubled Die or even Machine Doubling.
Looks like the tip of the 4 has taken a hit and flattened it out slightly.

Re: 2004 25 cents First Settlement filled E

Picture is a little out of focus, but it looks to me like it may have taken
a hit and pushed the metal over.

Re: 1954 $2 S/R Note question.

There are three varieties of the 1954 test note (one of each signature)
but as far as I know, they are all FPM.

Re: 1945 25 Cents w/die cracks

Nice die crack.
Not unusual on any of the coins minted during the war years.
The RCM used the dies well past their expiry time then.
Thanks for sharing

Re: 1954 7 consecutive devil face 100 bills

Your fortunate that you have the lower quantity printed Beatty-Coyne signatures. This adds to the value. It is hard to grade a banknote from a photo but from what I can see with the fold and off centre printing, I would grade them at UNC (although one appears to have a stain on the border). I don't ...

Not a Devils Head or anything special about the serial number so in

Re: 1939 1-cent questionable alloy

I agree with Bill.
Why bother, it is still only worth 1 cent either way and it would cost
you more than that to try and clean it.

Re: What is this error (2010)?

A little hard to tell but it's not a die chip so it is probably a gas bubble.
No extra value.

You don't say where you live but have you tried your LCS?
Sometimes they break up sets and may have the cards.

Re: 1966 dollar small beads ?

Just by your question and not even looking at the photo, my answer was large bead.
There are only about 485 small bead known and most of them have been graded and holdered.
Chances of finding one in the wild are between nil and none.

Looking at your photo, definitely a large bead.

Re: Best looking error I have seen in ages

It's caused by either a coin rolling or wrapping machine.
Not uncommon and not an error.
