Re: pcgs graded gold coin

Thanks for your feedback. It is a beautiful coin and the holder issue is barely noticeable. I would have paid a couple of hundred more if I knew it was an MS64+.

pcgs graded gold coin

I just bought a 1914 $10 PCGS graded MS64 gold Canadian coin. It arrived today but it was actually a pcgs MS64+ graded coin that was sent to me by the store I buy from. With the naked eye, I did not notice any issues. Under 2x magnification I noticed 2 tiny edges that is used to lock in this slab wi...

Re: TTC tokens

You are probably right. I will just keep a couple...So with the demise of the cent and now the token, I think coinage and currency will be a thing of the past (people pay for stuff with credit cards and debit cards) in the future.

Re: 1912 $5 gold Canadian coin

So the coin arrived today from J&M. It looks great. I checked the pcgs related auctions and I think I did good. I checked the melt value of gold, and I think I did well. Most important, unlike my other First Gold Canadian coin pcgs MS gold 1914 $10 coin, this is actually the earliest I have and ...

TTC tokens

I bought 3 rolls of tokens last December ($150 per roll). I am now aware that they are phasing out TTC tokens. By August they will no longer be selling tokens and by the end of the year they will no longer accept tokens as fare. The TTC is not giving a refund for unused tokens. Nor are they allowing...

Re: Where can I sell my $100 1976 Olympic Gold Coin?

Good luck, I tried selling a $200 Canadian gold proof coin, but was only offered melt value at a local store. I bought it because of the look but because of the difficulty selling it for near what I paid...I traded it for something I wanted with another person.

Re: Estate Coin & Bill Collection

I would be interested in any devil head $1 or $2 or $5 or $10 or $20 bills that are in vf or better condition but not the rare valuable ones (I can not afford them). Also any 1948 silver dollars. If you have any left let me know.

Re: Gold coins 1912-1914

That is good advice...but I have already bought a lot of gold Canadian coins etc...Sadly, I have not read any books or had a mentor. Though, I have seen tons of youtube videos and read other peoples comments/advice and keep a close eye out on coins that interest me. So far I think I may have lost a ...

Opinion wanted

I have several bank notes I bought from a well known store. Also from local stores. I have a few 'devil head" VF bills, but they are not rare dates. Also, I have uncirculated bills with the modified head of the same time but again not rare. Should I trade the extras for things I may want or sho...

Re: canadian pennies

I have always liked collecting the cent (it is what I could afford lol). However, when they discontinued it...I saw that the market was being flooded with the " last cent coin rolls". Even though they made them out of different materials, I felt the big return for so many minted would take...

1912 to 1914 Canadian gold coins sold by the mint.

I have noticed a lot of stores who bought from the rcm the 1912 to 1914 Gold Canadian "hand selected" and "premium hand selected" coins and are selling on the secondary markets range in prices. I am not sure if my concern is unfounded. I do not believe their is any safe guard the...

Re: 1912 $5 gold Canadian coin

It was CAD...I know sometimes I can get a better deal with a little more work, but sometimes I just can not make it to places. I intent to go to the Toronto expo you mentioned though and bring sufficient cash so if I see something (s), I can get it (them).
