Re: Straight clipped planchet?

I don't even think that it is PMD.

The clipped part has been ground to give a smooth finish. Mint damage would be a sharp break.

Re: Bank note 1944

A very nice note. I wonder if it could possibly be Military script or some other government special branch or institution release. I say this because it says "Will pay to the bearer at any branch in Canada of any Chartered Bank" Very interesting that it is for .88 cents. Where did you find it? Where...

Re: 1954 cdn 1 dollar bill no serial number

I have one with the serial number missing as well.

I asked Steve at BCS about grading it but he declined.

You might try Louis at CCCS or Jason at Legacy.

Call them first.

Re: *MM One dollar bill

$50 - $100, where did you get that?

It's hard to tell from the pictures but are there soft creases on the corners? If yes then it's an AU.

I've had the same series UNC's and got much, much less for them at coin shows.

Re: 1973 canadian dollar with *AA

Looks like it might be an AU58. From what I can see it has 2 soft corners on the right side.

You might get $8 - 10 if you put it in a sleeve and avoid any more creases.

Good luck

Re: Shin plaster note

The "A" series were the first Shinplasters issued in Canada in 1870. They became very popular very fast. The volume of both series was the same however the "B" series which followed in 1871 and continued in production until the late 1890's so the distribution was much slower then the "A" series. Wit...

Re: 1955 One Dollar Coin

Yikes, Acetone. If the coin you have is of no value (only melt), then you can get way with it. If there is the slightest value to the coin NEVER use acetone on silver. It will remove the luster from silver. First if you have something like Scotch tape or similar types of tape on a silver coin try so...

Re: 1937 Canadian $5

Interesting development.

I wonder if any restrictions will be placed on PCGS.

I may give Jason a call for more info about this.

Re: Silver Prices

troubadour please let me know where you will get melt value or $15 from a dealer. If that's the case I will rush there right now and cash in all my 1967 silver dollars. At this very moment (13:18 Friday Nov 15/19), if you were to go to J&M Coins in Vancouver you would get $9.75 for a 1967 Silver $1....
