Prooflike and business strike.

Here's photos of recent coins and differences in the dies. Note the 2009 and 2007 pl coins and the distance of the date to sail and water to beads. The 2008 is more like a business strike die. I can't wait to see a 2009 business strike dime. http://www.coinsandcanada.com/forum/class/test/2007_10_cen...

At least it could be a 2a or 2b. What years? There is an early 2 marker also noted by Haxby. Scratch at the top near where the bun attaches to head which made me suspect your coin above was a late stage #2 because it's not there. Perhaps when the scratch is removed the button of hair changes also?

Kevin, I look at the top lip. real curved is #2, straighter would be a #5. Also look at where the top of the bun is attached to the head. The #1 is V shaped and the others are more of a right angle. These are tough to distinguish and I may be 100% wrong.

I have a theory that the guitar and harp are the result of repetitive clashes of dies which are loose and slowly rotating. As the guitar continues to strike coins the damage caused by the clashes is worn away which results in the harp.

It is a confederation medal from 1867. Five hundred were made in bronze, 50 in silver and 1 in gold. The four young women represent the four original provinces and the seated lady is Brittania. It is the only medal I have.

1967 Dollar Ghost

If you look at lustrous 1967 Dollars you will notice on the reverse there is a pattern in the lustre which they all seem to have. I believe the pattern is caused by the flow of metal into the portrait on the obverse and suspect the pattern would be rotated on the rotated or diving goose coins. http:...
