I took a very quick look at you lists and nothing leaped out at me. Unless you have a coin that is uncirculated or very close to it, 99% of what you have is essentially scrap silver. For Canadian coins after 1920, every face dollar (dollar, 2-50 cents, 4 quarters, etc) contains .6 troy ounces of silver. With silver a little less than $32 US per ounce, the full scrap value for each face dollar would be about $19. Most legitimate dealers will give you 88-90% of scrap value (each worn coin weighs less worn than new) ... so you are looking at each face dollar being around $18.00 in your pocket.

US silver (until 1964) was .900 pure, so each face dollar contains a little more than .8 troy oz per face dollar. Again, with silver at a little less than $32 per ounce, each US face dollar would be worth a little lore than $25 full scrap value and, with the dealer deduction at 88%, each US face dollar would be about $22.40 in your pocket.

The nickels and pennies will have very little premium attached, unless you sell them on Ebay. I would suggest that you either buy, or check out at the library, Yoeman's Red Book for US coins and the Charlton or Haxby book for Canadian coins and see if anything you have looks like it is worth appreciably more than others. Remember that the prices in these annual coin guides are FULL retail prices. You would get 30-40% tops for anything listed in the books, and then it would have to be a very good grade. Do some research on your coins and you could easily double what you could get by cherry-picking the good ones before selling the bulk on Ebay or to a scrap silver dealer. DO NOT, under any circumstance, sell your coins to the same person who gives you the estimate ...unless you know him very well so that you won't be taken advantage of.
