1973 RCMP grading

Hi, Could someone here please help me grade my 1973 RCMP $1 silver coins? They are in cases, UNC proof although hard to tell from the images but do have a mirror shine. They haven't seen the light of day in over 40 years. The same side on all four coins look stained or tarnished. I'm not sure how th...

Banknote GUNC grading

Hi, I have this 1954 $5 bill below. I'm no expert but I can't find a flaw on it. I believe it's GUNC. My question is, looking up the bill here why is there such a large value difference between GUNC-65 and 66? Is "66" status and above somehow reserved for bills that were maybe originally p...

Re: 1976 Olympic silver 28 piece folder/stamp

I found out this set originally came in a red leather binder and marked the first occasion the Government of Canada produced an official P.N.C. (Philatelic, Numismatic Combination). I guess the binder wouldn't fit in the safety deposit box so it was tossed years ago. :shock:

Re: 1976 Olympic silver 28 piece folder/stamp

Okay so nothing in the Volume II Charlton book. Thanks for looking. Saves me a trip to the library. I've tried every possible search description I could think of. Lots of sets, even ones in wood boxes but nothing like this one. My uncle bought it back in 1976. He was nuts about collecting anything r...

Re: 1976 Olympic silver 28 piece folder/stamp

Thanks Bill in Burl! I will check if it has any value above melt. I thought it was odd when I emailed one coin shop and was offered melt value but the owner was willing to travel over 100 miles to buy it from me in person. And another coin shop also quoted me melt value but kept rambling on about ho...

1976 Olympic silver 28 piece folder/stamp

Hi, I can't find much info on my Olympic set below. At least not the plastic folder/stamp version. I found here listings for some single $5 and $10 coin values but not the complete set. Anyways I've been offered melt value. Coin/metal buyers told me it isn't worth a penny more. I'd only believe that...

1973 $1 bill asterisk consecutive

Hello! I have the following four 1973 $1 consecutive *FG uncirculated bills. I found the value range for this bill here but how does having four with consecutive serial numbers affect the total value? Thanks for the help! https://i696.photobucket.com/albums/vv323/Valhomes/1973_AFG_C_front_zpseewckff...
