Re: 1996 Nickel with a dot

Common on the chromium plated dies. It starts off a a pin hole and the size slowly increase with each strike.
It is just part of the minting process but has no real numistmatic value. There are probably thousands out there
the same.

Re: 1963 one cent with retained die cut or strikethrough sliver

Welcome to the forum Sorry but I cannot tell anything from picture supplied. Too dark to see any detail. Not sure what you mean by a “retained diecut or strike through sliver” It is slightly misaligned but is within spec. The letters have to run off the edge to have any value. A clear photo of both ...

Re: 1972 Bahamas $20 gold

NGC has it listed at 6.48 g also. It is possible that Numista made a typo or had the wrong info. I would go by the RCM weight as it is they who produced the coin. If you look at the chart you referenced, you will see that on different denominations that the weight varies from year to year. Not sure ...

Re: is this doubling

No, if it was a Doubled Die, the “ doubling” would be the same height as the lettering.

Re: 1 CENT 1897/7?

Looks more like damage.
If it was a DD, the 7 would be larger. There is a repunched 7 that year but that is not it.
Excellent photography though.

Re: RARE DISCOVERY 2023 CHARLES III Loonie, error or not?

The only way to remove a fingerprint is to clean it right away.
Once the print has been on there for awhile, it becomes etched into the coin and can't be removed.

That’s what happens when you don’t hold coins by the edge.

Re: RARE DISCOVERY 2023 CHARLES III Loonie, error or not?

Not sure which lines you are referring to but if it is the lines on the second picture,
then those are die flow lines caused by a worn die. If it is something else then specify.
Also they are called “ Loonies” not Lonnies”

Re: 2000 Family 25 cent

Not really worth too much. There were over 34 million minted.
Colonial Acres sells MS63 grades for 85 cents each so unless you
have something that grades MS 66 or better, then that’s what they are worth.

Re: 1965 50cent

Without a picture it is hard to tell what you have. There are different types of doubling.
Please provide a closeup of the 1 along side a picture of the whole coin.

Re: Coins

You didn’t really state what you wanted to know. It is a common coin with about 119 million
produced in 1936 alone. It is worth a couple of dollars in that condition.
