Re: Accumulations on 1935 Canadian silver dollar

I'm not sure if you use the same terminology in your country, but in the US, we call this machine doubling. A slight bounce during the strike flattens out part of the device. You can tell because of the flat, shelf-like appearance and also how the "doubling" cuts into the device rather th...

Accumulations on 1935 Canadian silver dollar

Hi: I have two 1935 Canadian George V silver dollars which have some accumulations on the reverse. Do these accumulations add any value to a coin in any way? Also,there were 428,700 plus minted,how many of these accumulation varieties would there be out there?(guesstimate?)Thanks,Huck50 http://www.c...

1957 ERII ribbon,knot,laurel leaves separated?

I just aquired this 1957 ERII dollar and after looking at with my loupe,it looks like the ribbon,knot and laurel leaves are separated,whereas my other ERII coins show they are all connected.Doesn't seem to be much wear at that particular spot which would suggest this separation. Is there another var...

Re: Wear areas on Elizabeth II silver dollars question

Sometimes even the pro's get it wrong.. perhaps it's an off day.. perhaps they have a hangover so the keep all the lights off when they grade 'em.. who knows! But it does happen... Buy the coin.. not the holder it comes in Thanks! I have seen other coins,maybe 20-30 with this same effigy and some w...

Where can I find near perfect examples of Elizabeth II

Hi: I am trying to find what an actual coin with the QEII 1953-1967 effigy is supposed to look like,specifically the Canadian dollars.I did a search for a MS-67 grade and saw a few for around $2k which had significant wear,particularly around the laurel leaves area. I am trying to find a 'perfect&qu...

Re: Wear areas on Elizabeth II silver dollars question

It was definitely a legit TPG outfit (starts with an I) that graded this coin. Was it International Coin Certification Service ? canadiancoppercoins.com - Did ICCS have a bad day? Maybe they had a bad week. From what little I'm reading though, ICCS is considered conservative in their grading. Cheer...

Re: Wear areas on Elizabeth II silver dollars question

Why would you get a certified common dollar? The cost of the certification alone costs more than the scrap silver value or what the coin will ever be worth. If the coin that you showed was the "64", then who certified it and is it a qualified TPG? If it's taken through a flip, maybe it's ...

Re: Wear areas on Elizabeth II silver dollars question

Hi: Actually,I paid $88.00 plus tax! I know a little bit more now than I did when I bought it,being my first certified coin. I paid about $50 too much I think! So I will make sure what I am getting before buying a certified coin in the future! Hot Brass

Re: Wear areas on Elizabeth II silver dollars question

Yeah,my coin should fit between EF-40 and AU-50. Even a MS-60 has less wear than mine and mine is a MS-64!? Mine still has the lustre,but has nicks and scratches.Still can't figure out why they would grade it a MS-64,with all the wear going on around the hair-line and the leaves,especially when MS c...
