Re: 1950 Canada Silver Dollar

To the best of my knowledge- There are two different schools of thought on a 1950 PL. Officially in 1949 & 50, the RCM produced a Business strike, Specimen Dollar and a BU Dollar for collectors. In 1951 they started minting PL coins. Unofficially there are some TPG's who believe that PL Dollars ...

Re: 1954 Canadian Dollar

spies- You should really put this question on its own post so that we don't have two different conversations going on here. I will answer your question once you do that. Thanks. ginalota- There were 40 million bills printed in that series so even in CH UNC, it would still only be worth around 4 or 5...

Moderate overall wear and laurel leaves too worn for higher grade.

Re: 100 notes

I would spend now.
The problem with holding on to them is that the rate
of inflation will probably surpass whatever premium
there would be so you would technically be losing money.

Re: 1954 $1 without Devil's Face Lawson-Bouey C/I VF

I agree with bushman.
Value about $2.00 plus whatever premium someone
might be willing to pay for the minor printing error

Re: Canada $ 100 Note interesting number

That is known as a 4 digit cycle note.
You didn't specify what series or condition the note is
but if it is a new note in uncirculated condition, it
might be worth around $115.00.
There are 9900 such notes in every prefix series so they are not rare.

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,...

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

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...
