No, an Obv 2 is identified by the crown tip impinging on the bead and the neck truncation where it comes to a point. If it is between the beads above and to the left of the C in Canada, it's a 2. An Obv 2 also has a dip or crease in the neck/throat. An Obv 1 will be fully rounded with no "dimpl...

Yes, they came from the final "wash" as they came down the line. You find many many George large cents from just before WW1 through the teens that are great "woody" keeps.
My personal opinion (but I am not a 5 cent collector) is to gradually sell the nickels slowly, either on this site or Ebay, and raw in groups. I wouldn't certify any of them. I would certify the '47 dollar, but it will cost a bunch to have the variety listed... I'd try ICCS. For the '36 25 cents, I ...
Depending on where you live, I would put them in the Geoffrey Bell auction at the late Sept Coin Expo in Toronto. DO not consign them to The Canadian Numismatic Crooks (TCNC) at any Torex. Heritage would be good. Are all your coins raw or have they been sleeved?
When it was suggested above that a coin should be "worth' at least $150, the definition of "worth" is what you can actually SELL it for and not what is listed in Trends or Charlton. Unless you are talking about high-end or scarce stuff, it would take a Trends listing of $300 to be the...
Of my thousands of coins, not a single one is graded. I think that people submit them in lots and sometimes add some unworthy coins just to get to the magic number, be it 20 or 50 or 100. Other unknowing poor folks submit worthless coins only because they think that they have to .... TPG propaganda ...

Someone has "remodeled" an 1876 coin.... and did a nice job. The font for the "6" on the 1876 was very upright, so it wouldn't have been too hard to do. Look for any scratches/marks around the upper left and right. The photos aren't clear enough to see what's what.
Well, it started this week in Mississauga, just SW of Toronto. Sessions and symposiums start tomorrow, with bourse/auctions starting Thursday. Lots of local/area collectors, authors, & dealers. Good time to be had by all.
The 1911 Geo V large cent was minted without the "Dei Gratia" that had been on coins since Provincial coinage. People didn't like it, so it was returned for the 1912 and later mintages.
We really can't tell you anything without a photo. What you describe can be due to any number of reason, including someone in a garage or basement with any number of tools, including a large hammer and a block of wood.... and with a second coin.
