Re: 1973 Dollar Note with Ink Error

I can see what they call an offset although it is a very light one. It is caused when a wet printed sheet touches another one and transfers some of the ink. To have any great value, it would have to have a heavy offset but yours is still a keeper. If you want to identify it, you can mark it as a &qu...

Re: 1964 Dime

Yes, they are fairly common.
Usually when someone is doing maintenance on
commercial dryers, they come across them.`
Yours would be an early stage dryer coin.
The longer it stays in the dryer, the smaller it gets.
Their is no extra value to them, but some people collect
them as a novelty.

Re: 1951 commemorative 5 cent

henrysmedford- It was only the business strikes that were plated. The 1951 Commemorative was 100% nickel. Bettyv I don't think that is flaking on your coin. Hard to tell without actually seeing it but it looks like something has attacked the surface and discoloured it. If in the future you could sho...

Re: 1982 & 1983 United Kingdom uncirculated set

Agree with Bill on the value.
I bought three sets as a gift for $20.00
which works out to under $7.00 set

Re: 1975 bills

Pretty hard to give a value of paper money from a picture
because there is so much you can't see, but both have the
common prefix with over 35 million of each printed.
From what i can see, the $100.00 might be worth around $125.00
and the $50.00 around $65.00

All Newfoundland coins are struck that way up to 1904,
then they switched over to Medal Axis

Re: 1 cent split

There are many collectors who specialize in and only collect error coins as well as those that collect both error and regular coins. It is hard to value an error coin as there is not a "book price" as nearly every error is unique. Most of the minor error coins do not warrant much of a prem...

Re: 1881 10cent

Hard to tell from those pictures but it looks like aT-2 variety which would make it not worth much more than bullion value in that condition. If not for the holes, I would grade it about F12 When taking pictures of coins, please take the photo straight on instead of on an angle. It makes it much eas...

Re: $1 bill sequence numbering

It certainly would, especially being all 7's.
Value of course would depend on condition.

Re: For Sale KEY DATE 1921 Canada Five Cents

Jackattack- I don't see what the age of the furniture has to do with it, the coins could have been hidden at any time since then. Maybe original owner knew it was counterfeit and hid it as it is illegal to own. Anyhow, I hope you can sleep well after screwing some uninformed collector out of $5500.0...

Re: For Sale KEY DATE 1921 Canada Five Cents

I have to agree with Bill in Burl. Don't get so up in arms when someone is trying to help you from making a mistake. Those new pictures just make it even more obvious that coin is counterfeit. If you are so sure the coin is genuine, then send it out to get certified and graded and prove us wrong. I ...

Re: Found in my change..

Impossible to be real.
The inner and outer core are stamped at the same
time so there is no way of it being reversed.
Also you can see pry marks around the top of the polar bear.
Makes a nice conversation piece though.

Re: 1973 PEI dollar differing thickness

Wouldn't be a variety.
Might be classed as a minor error.
It is fairly common especially on Silver Dollars.
Doesn't really add much value. I have several
that I paid the same price as for as ones with no wire edge.
Might be worth keeping though as it is different.
