Re: Does anyone know about these medals?

These are not medals that were presented to anyone. They are souvenir medallions which anyone could purchase. Just as many companies today are selling souvenirs to mark Elizabeth's 70th anniversary.

Re: 2 Diget Radar 3 cycle repeater

It's not a serial number.
It's a sheet number.
There are four notes with exactly the same number.
And with lower printing runs radars and repeaters are far more common on these older notes.

Re: 1979 11 digit radar

For a seven digit serial, the odds of any radar are 1/1000
For an eleven digit serial, the odds of any radar are 1/100,000

Re: coinsandcanada.com price guide

the top tier TPG's do not use or recognize the term proof-like or the PL designation.
Not quite true, PCGS, NGC, ICCS and CCCS all use the PL designation, they just don't all include the same years.

Re: coinsandcanada.com price guide

The problem isn't the price guide as much as your assessment of your own coins, less than one in a thousand will grade pl67. There are years for some denominations for which no coins have been graded PL67.

Re: 1962 Hanging 2 and Re-Engraved Neck/Chin penny

There is no such thing as original paper over foil wrap, nor are there any reengraved necks or chins.
We're going to need pics of your coin to see exactly what you have.

Re: 1871 Quarter (Canadian)?

It is definitely not a 1871 Canadian quarter.
Most likely a 1871 British shilling.

Re: 1974 help

It's not an off center strike.
The coin is out of round.
It' simply a damaged coin.

And your first coin has been struck by very worn dies.

Re: 1980 foreign planchet?

not foreign planchet
purely coincidental
