1870 Canadian ten cent coin (Narrow 0)

Postby Hot Brass » Wed Mar 27, 2013 10:17 am

I have an 1870 Canadian ten cent coin that has the third digit unreadable,but after referring to my coin book,this coin seems to have the identifiers as being an 1870.
How much does that slice-like impression through the third digit have on the effect of the grade or value,obviously some? Thanks,Hot Brass

I'd say F-12 with reverse damage.

Some damage will turn a very nice coin into a filler. IE, my 1925 nickel is VF or maybe better (still has luster) but I only paid $30 for it (deep gouges on either side of the effigy). IMHO your 1870's damage detracts from the coin's eye-appeal yet I'd rather have it than one that was holed in a better grade.

Just my 2 bits (no pennies to throw in anymore :)


Cheers
