Re: Help me identify my $1 Canadian bank notes

There isn't too much of a premium for consecutive numbers in that series but look for
Number EAH 8300038. That would be a three digit radar note which might be worth around $15.00.

Re: 1954 devil face radar note

First of all, It's not a radar note.
Secondly, It's hard to grade a note from a picture,
but from what I see, I would say it is some where between
Fine and Extra Fine.
As there was 10 million printed with that prefix (CA),
the value would probably be between $10-$15.00.

Re: 2017 Canadian Coin Set - Errors or Defects??

The coins put in those sets are just business strikes. The same coins that will be issued to the public, so no extra care is taken with them as say in a `Proof Set`. There are probably more Toonies with waffling than without. On the Loonie, it looks like it may be a bit of plate bubbling. Just anoth...

Re: 2017 Canadian Coin Set - Errors or Defects??

Larry1960- The rim damage is known as waffling. It is quite common on Toonies and there is no premium for these. After the coins are minted, they go through an edge lettering machine that stamps the letters on the edge and causes a slight raising of the metal. These letters can be facing up or down,...

Re: Canadian 50 Cent Coin Collection

I don't think I could add anything that wasn't recommended on
the other forum you posted this on. Depends on whether your looking
for maximum return or a quick sale.

Re: 2 dollar bill

If it is circulated, it is worth $2.00.
If it is in uncirculated condition, $3.00-$4.00.

Re: 1968 variety?

That is quite a fairy tail that seller has. Just how would a 69 be converted to a 68? Also there would be no reason to even if it was possible, as there were over 170,000,000 minted between the RCM and Philadelphia Mint so an extra couple of thousand would make no difference. Hard to tell from the p...

Re: Peculiar Canadian 1 cent coin

It could also be a dryer coin.
I was thinking maybe it was spooned but it
seems too round and smooth for that
Either way, it's PMD.

That new photo makes it easier.
Definitely a split planchet.
Don't think I have ever seen a split that large.

Re: Churchill Commemorative Coin

The Churchill Commemorative is from Great Britain and is a a legal tender 5 shilling coin.
Value like any other coin depends on condition.
If circulated, not much over face value.
In MS condition, maybe $10.00 if you can find a buyer.

Re: Holed coins

If you are going to display them, they would probably look better filled.
It won't increase the value though as they would still be damaged coins.
