Re: 1939 dollar double HP

I just found out that ICCS will not look for any 'extras' on the reverse,unless they are asked to verify a particular item,such as rotated dies,double HP,etc.They also charge an extra $2.50 to verify each item of interest. I learned another thing today! HB

1939 dollar double HP

I just bought a 1939 Canada which has been graded by ICCS as MS-63,but the original owner had placed a note on the holder stating "2XHP". My question is,why did ICCS not pick up on that little extra piece to that coin?.They just missed it,or is it of little importance? I am new,so not quit...

Re: 1967 Canada 'flying goose' dollar,possibly a rotated die

Thanks! I get 2 degrees on the obverse and 10 degrees on the reverse....so,I have an 8 degree die rotation(10-2=8?). How many of the under 45 degree versions of the flying goose are out there, do you figure.... and what angles?. 8 degrees sounds about right. Otherwise, I don't have answers to your ...

Re: 1967 Canada 'flying goose' dollar,possibly a rotated die

Brass, I think if you draw a line across the top of the C and 7 [CANADA 1867-1967], that will give you the reverse baseline. On the obverse, draw a horizontal baseline between the bottom edge of the E [ELIZABETH] and the A [REGINA]. You should then be able to accurately measure the difference with ...

Re: 1967 Canada 'flying goose' dollar,possibly a rotated die

Just use a cardboard flip and mark the axes H and V before placing the coin iand aligning the obverse and stapling the flip. You should be able to measure the angle. Not sure I follow?? How do I know the which way the obverse(head) is supposed to be orientated in the 'correct' position?. The "...

1967 Canada 'flying goose' dollar,possibly a rotated die.

I have a 1967 "flying goose" silver dollar that may be a rotated die version,possibly 10 degrees,maybe less. How can I accurately say whether it's 10 degree rotation or less.....obviously more rotation would be easier to see,but how can I place the obverse effigy in such a position so that...

How many jewels on bottom rim of 1935 crown?

I have a hard time finding a clear example of the jewels on the bottom rim of the King George 1935 Canada dollar. I have a graded MS-65 and it barely shows what looks like small protrusions on the lower rim which I think should be jewels. I count 6 showing,I think. Can someone verify exactly how man...

Which Third Party Coin Graders to stay away from.

I am fairly new and have been buying mostly my graded Canadian coins from E-bay. Most are the usual ICCS TPG,but I have seen many others.Is there a list anywhere of third-rate third party graders out there...ones to stay away from? Thanks,Hot Brass

Re: 1949 Canada silver dollar...why so cheap?

672,218 minted. Highest since '39 and not beaten until 1953, then finally for good in '58 and beyond. Cheers Hi: Not sure I follow.....this mintage number (672,218) is fairly low compared to some.(I get why a 1948 is worth so much,being that only 18,780 were minted),but the 1965 minted 10,768,569 (...
