Re: Help with an estimate for my 1969 error coin

I don't see any error ... just a coin within normal tolerance. Any stamped, pressed, struck small metallic item will have small differences as the things are spit out. Just like nails, screws, paper clips or bobby pins ... no two are exactly alike when they emerge. Coins are common-use everyday item...

Re: 2 dollars 1954 ten million number

Here is the CCF link. Pay attention to the 2 guys that had similar notes! You will need to get it certified and I would not do it with CCCS or ICCS:

Re: 2 dollars 1954 ten million number

I've never seen a bill like that on any forum. Surely someone will post an answer to your question. I posted a link to this thread on the CCF site.

Re: Guide book for Newfoundland coins?

Someone just wrote a book on all them. You should make this same post for a thread on the CCF website .. you'll have much better luck. There are very few people who come to this site for the forums.

Re: 1938 silver dollar corrosion

It isn't rust .. has to be some other chemical reaction ... or else the coin is a fake and it has iron in it.

It could be a trade dollar for use in the Province, but that's just a guess.

Re: Estate collection/accumulation- seeking advice

Most, but not all, of the annual RCM stuff sells at well less than what they cost initially. Many sell at scrap silver prices, if they are silver. I would get a copy of the Vol 2 of the latest Charlton annual guide which has non-circulating coinage ... you do not want the numismatic volume for circu...

Welcome aboard Dallorama. This English side of the board doesn't get a whole lot of traffic like the French side, but there are lots of folks that just tune in to read. There will be more than enough people that chime in to answer your questions.

Re: Unicorn's head different on one of my 64 half dollars

You can take what pginrh posted in this thread to the bank. He is the Canadian 50 cent guru and wrote the variety section for Charlton. In addition, he has extensive research material and hundreds of varieties outlined in pages and pages of information on the halves.

Re: 1 cent 1858 - 160 Degree Rotated Die

As I posted on another forum, it is my opinion that, on the Obverse, the "A" in Regina and the "V" in Vicky should be on the same horizontal line. That would make the rotation about 170+ degrees, or almost 180 degrees. Either way I would think that a TPG should consider it a "coinage" rotation.

Re: Help Making a purchase

I plugged in the ID number into google and got the listing. He seems to use kijiji just like Ebay. The seller has been going for 8 years and has pages and pages of offerings. He has a reply rate of 87% on his listings, so maybe you are the other 13%. I would try to bid on one of his other items and ...

Re: 1950 - 1$ silver

Don't trash it .. it's .800 silver, so there's .6 troy ozs of silver in there for scrap. Silver is 17.55 US today, so it's worth more than $10 US .. a dealer might give you 9.
