Re: 1965 pointed 5 reverse view of 1965

I said gratia in your last post but meant Regina. So sorry. Congratulations Dave, you have a pointed 5, large beads.

Re: 1965 Pointed 5 ?? Large Beads

We would need to see the obverse as well. I believe the last A in gratia points to a bead for large. Definitely pointed 5 though.

Sorry to say, but your bill is neither rare nor in good shape, but still worth a dollar.

Re: 2008 1 CENT chiped 3 times

Your penny has what is called post mint damage, which does not add any value.

Re: 1998 full planchet error

It could be acid damage. If a diluted solution of nitric acid were used for cleaning, it would dissolve the outer nickel ring, while leaving the inner aluminum core relatively unaffected. Dripping or brushing the acid onto the middle of the coin until it’s halfway to the outer ring and then left for...

If the last digit was a five, it would be.

Re: 1953 Nickel

This site has pictures in the coin section under 1953 five cents that will explain it for you. I would say SF Near, unsure if it is missing plating or just worn off. The scratches will take away from the value.

Re: Value of 1954 Five Dollar Bill

You can check prices for yourself in the banknote section on this site. It lists fine @ $10.40, very fine @ $16.20 and extra fine @ $27.80. Those would be dealer prices though.

John Shaw bibliography

It’s hard to find any information on John Shaw, a Quebec ironmonger from around 1830-50. I believe that he is credited with designing some tokens as well as engraving some dies. Any information on him would be greatly appreciated. Note to admin, his J. Shaw token is listed in the upper Canada catego...

Hi Peter, I’m not really a paper guy, but I would be concerned about sun fading by doing that.

Re: Denticles

In my research on this topic, I have only seen “raised toothlike design around the rim of some coins”. But teeth come in lots of varieties, Jim’s answer is the most detailed definition I have come across yet. I have found the reasons for them are, to make them harder to counterfeit, to help stop coi...

Re: 1943 Tombac

Looks like someone tried to scrape off the crud, evidence of this is apparent under the 19 and above the TS, as well as the obvious one across the field. Since the coin is already damaged, you could try to pry up the piece of metal with a toothpick, if you can, it would prove Bill’s thoughts on the ...

Re: Doubling on face

Welcome to the forum Ron. You should try to include full pictures of both sides of the coin, as it may give evidence to the cause. My guess would be strike doubling, where the die bounces because it is loose and hits the coin again in some areas.
