Re: Looking to liquidate some of my collection

It all depends on whether you are looking for a quick sale or maximum profit. For a quick sale you could take them to one of the numerous coin dealers in the Toronto area and get 50-60% of the value. For maximum profit and it will take longer, you could post them on Kijiji or eBay. If there any coin...

Re: Is my nickle rare?

It is just damage. The “I” is there, it is just that the second downstroke on the “N” has been pushed to the left. It would be impossible to have a missing letter ( unless it was grease filled). In the future, please put the date in the heading if you are only going to show one side, sometimes this ...

Re: Pics Wanted: 1955 ARN. no DB

I think part of the problem is that the 1955 2 1/2 waterline is the only true Arnprior whereas other years that have 2 1/2 waterlines caused by die die polishing even though they can be longer are still called Arnpriors even though this is technically incorrect. If you look under Canadian Coins on t...

Re: Anyone knows if this is an error coin?

Welcome to the forum

Not an error, not deformed in manufacturing. it is damage.
There is no way that would happen when the coin was struck.
Value 25 cents.

Re: Pics Wanted: 1955 ARN. no DB

No picture needed, yes that would count as a waterline if it is touching the canoe. A true Arnprior has 2 1/2 waterlines with no sign of the waterline touching the canoe. The 1955 Arnpriors were all struck from the same die so they would all be the same. Jusa found this in my files 1955 Arnprior2.jpg

Re: 1996 toonie

Looks like a small die chip in which case it would not be considered an error.

Re: Mint Rolls

It is too early in the year to really have any record of the value of 2024 coins. The values are based on things like sales, market, trends etc. It will probably be close to the end of the year or early next year before approximate values can be established. As there were 25,000 of these rolls produ...

Re: 2024 10 cent Die Clash On Reverse

I think your imagination is getting the best of you. A die clash would show (usually) a thin raised line
showing the outline of the King. I don’t see any of that on your dime, all I see is some sort of marking
on the dime. You don’t show the Obverse which should also show a die clash

Re: 1958 Canadian 1 cent (penny) in silver

One way of telling is that there were no silver cent planchets produced so you can rule that out. It is not a silver dime planchet or the cent would not be fully formed as a dime is smaller and thinner than a cent. Also we see these periodically on the various coin forums. There have been occasions ...

Re: 2024 dime from first strike roll #3153/5000

A minor grease struck through has no real value other than 10 cents.
Keep them or spend them it is up to you.

Re: 1958 Canadian 1 cent (penny) in silver

Certainly not on a dime blank, it has been plated with nickel or possibly mercury in the earlier years.
These were done as high school experiments in science class. It has no numismatic value.

Re: How about this one

At first glance I was going to say it was Double Struck but looking closer, it may be that it
was struck with a soft die by someone trying to create an error coin.
See what others have to say.

Re: Mint Rolls

Your not giving us much info to go on.
Could you supply a little more info such as what year are the coins
and when you say mint paper roll, are you referring to commemorative
wrapping or ordinary paper wrapping.
