Re: 2024 Bare Leg Beaver

About 1/2 of the coins in the roll were the bare leg variety and the other half were the full fur variety.

2024 Bare Leg Beaver

These coin examples are from a 2024 First Strike Mint Roll #3153/5000.
There appears to be at least 2 different strikes, one with full fur and one with missing fur on the front and back legs.

I have gone through my roll of 2024 dimes and several of them have what appears to be grease strike through.
I’m looking for opinions and suggestions on what to do with these coins.
The “grease” marks are not stagnant but move around the sales on different coins.

Re: 2023 Indigenous Colour, Filled Die

Most likely a “Strike through grease “
It is interesting and since it is a colour coin I would consider keeping it labeled and flipped.

1995 Popsicle Beads

Using my microscope I noticed that the beads near some of the 11 corners on the obverse of the 1995 dollar coin had attachments that linked the bead to the rim. Of 100 other 1995 Loonies coins I found 3 other examples.
Your comments are welcome.
