Re: 1995 Wrong Planchet Error Dime

Not really into error coins but it does look like it may be struck on a foreign planchet. Too large to be the centre of a Toonie. Problem is trying to determine which foreign planchet it is as the Canadian Mint has produced coins for close to 100 countries. If you want to do some homework, check the...

Re: 1973 $1 bills

Unfortunately the only Crow-Bowie prefix with any value is EXA.
Even though what you have are probably uncirculated, they are
still only worth about $2.00 ,$3.00 at the most. The problem is
trying to sell a large quantity. Who is there who will want to buy them.

Re: 1973 $1 bills

You didn't say what the signatures were but it sounds like they are either Lawson-Bouey or Crow -Bouey 3 letters. As there were over 2 Billion of these printed in total, they are not worth much over face value unless they are in CH UNC condition. Being consecutive numbers does not really add much of...

Re: New 2012 20$ Miss-cut

I have never seen a miscut like this and don't know how it is possible. The cutting blades are straight and do not have notches in them. The problem with something like this is proving it was done at the printers and not done by someone later. Right now there are several "miscuts" on eBay ...

Re: Don't know what they mean by teardrop 64 Kennedy SMS

If your talking about the teardrop marker on a 1964 SMS Half Dollar,
that one is in the wrong location, not a teardrop.

Re: Found an unidentified Canadian Confederation (1867-1967) Token

It wasn't produced by the RCM so it must be one of the dozens of aftermarket
tokens and medallions produced that year. Unless it is solid silver, it wouldn't
have much value. Is there anything on the other side?

Re: 1900 large cent

It's been plated after it left the mint.
You can see where it is starting to wear off.
No extra value.

Re: Canadian silver 5 cent collection

Sorry freegirl, but that is not a Doubled Die or even Machine Doubling.
Looks like the tip of the 4 has taken a hit and flattened it out slightly.

Re: 2004 25 cents First Settlement filled E

Picture is a little out of focus, but it looks to me like it may have taken
a hit and pushed the metal over.

Re: 1954 $2 S/R Note question.

There are three varieties of the 1954 test note (one of each signature)
but as far as I know, they are all FPM.

Re: 1945 25 Cents w/die cracks

Nice die crack.
Not unusual on any of the coins minted during the war years.
The RCM used the dies well past their expiry time then.
Thanks for sharing
