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 ...

Re: Centennial dollar coins

Edit to my last statement.
Should have proof read it.
Coins are 50% Silver and 50% COPPER not Nickel

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.

Re: 1892 CC Morgan

Just some marks that have occurred after the coin was minted.
Dollar looks to be well circulated so could be from anything.
Certainly no way letters were added during the minting process.
Sometimes your mind plays tricks and you see what you want to see.

Re: 1909 Canadian five cent coin

Pictures aren't the sharpest for grading
but I will say Au-50.
It is the Round Leaves variety.
Still a nice coin.

Re: 2004P 10 cent

Never seen that before. Looks like the nickel and copper layers have been peeled off somehow exposing the steel core, thus the lighter weight. The rims look higher so it is possible that it was an early stage dryer coin which would account for the smaller diameter. This is just an observation on my ...
