Re: Question about $1 prefixes OM/MN/RN amd $5 YC

There is no set value on currency.
It all depends on condition and grade.
The three $1.00 bills could be worth anywhere between $1.00 and $5.00
The $5.00 because of the low quantity printed could be worth anywhere
between $6.00 and $100.00.

As I said ,it all depends on what the grade is.

Re: Uncirculated

I will try and explain the best I can. Uncirculated means exactly what it says. Bills that have never gone into circulation from the day they were printed. You can get uncirculated bills from a Bank, as they can order them from the Bank of Canada. Most collectors buy a Bundle (100 Notes) or a Brick ...

Re: 1922 Canada Chartered Bank

Both the bill and the grader are genuine. CCC is Canada's largest seller of coins and currency who sometimes grade their own coins and bills. Incidentally, Steven Bromberg, the host on TLC is also the owner of CCC. Hard to put a value on it but looking at what others are going for, I think it would ...

Re: $50 note prefixes

It would help if you stated what year the bills are and what the signature is.
If you are referring to the 1975 issue, they were issued with both two and three letter prefixes.

Re: Slabs errors

Must be a new grade exclusive to ICCS.
Notice on the CCF site there is a 2003 1c that is
also graded MS88. Maybe they are making a set.

Re: 1953 Dollar varieties

No mistake, they are both SF. What may be confusing is that one coin has clean fields and the other has some colouring around the letters making it appear different. To prove it to yourself on the obverse, increase the size of your image and draw a line on each side of the "II". You will s...

Re: 1976 no s type II IKE dollar

In that condition, $1.50-$2.00 is about right.

Re: grading a 1894 Can Quarter

Just looking on one of the Chinese sites that sell counterfeit coins
and that exact coin is for sale for $2.50 US. Probably why it has
that cleaned look.

Re: grading a 1894 Can Quarter

Looks like it is counterfeit to me also.The first thing I usually look at is the hair ribbon on the Obverse. A 1894 Quarter has Q5 obverse where the left ribbon points down and the right ribbon has equal arms on the end. Your coin does not show this. Also the "A" in Regina should point to ...

Edit to my last statement.

Re: Centennial dollar coins

Both those Dollars are Commemorative Silver Dollars.
They are 50% Silver and 50% Nickel and came in a leatherette style case.
The Calgary Dollar goes for around $12.00 with the case
and the Arctic Territories goes for around $20-25.00 with the case.

Re: Queens portrait on one side, blank on the other

Hard to tell without a picture.
It sounds like it could be some sort of medallion
as opposed to a coin.
Is there any wording on it?

Re: 1 c 1981 brockage

Can't tell anything from that photo.
Anything other than photo of coin is not required.
Please take a larger clear photo of Obverse and Reverse,
preferably flat on a table with plain white or gray background.
