Re: Availability of 50 Cent and Nickel Dollars at Banks in Canada

Are you just interested in mint rolled Nickel dollars and 50 cent coins?

Would you possibly be interested in loose or self rolled coins?

PM me with your email so we can connect as I may be able to help you.

When exactly and where in Canada will you travel? I am in Alberta?

Happy travelling.

Re: Wtb: Peter Fidler 1992 Elk Point Alberta trade dollar/token

Where did you ever get that? This is the Elk Point trade dollar. There were 5000 nickel bonded steel and 200 silver TD's issued. To the best of my knowledge the NBS are approx. $5 - 7 and the silver issues are $30 - 40, however a friend of mine is one of North Americas and possibly the worlds leadin...

Re: grading a 1894 Can Quarter

Is the auctioneer in Saskatchewan? That's where I got my fake coins from? I asked for a refund and he just said tough luck - no refunds. It is now going through the police. Unlike fake furniture or other products, (these) coins are still legal tender despite their age, as such they are potentially s...

Re: grading a 1894 Can Quarter

Hello Charleyboy, Where did you buy this coin? Did you pay much? Can you try to take a better picture of the coin out of the 2 x 2. I am afraid I may have some bad news for you. I think that you may have purchased a counterfeit coin. Look at the 5, the C and the T on the reverse. Also look at the br...

Re: 1909 Canadian five cent coin

I will be a little harder and grade it an EF40.

Next time try taking the photo on a different background, possibly plain white paper or another colour to give good contrast.

Re: 1901 50 Cent Canada / Grade?

I did a quick comparison of your coin to a counterfeit 1901 - 50 cent coin I bought from a Saskatchewan Web Auction last summer. Yours does not have the same marks or lack of details that my counterfeit coin has. I also had the metal in mine analyzed. There was no silver in mine. If you are worried ...

Re: 1858 Cent Grade Help

Yes I agree VF20, however the damage could affect what you get for the coin should you try to sell it.

Re: Another NGC Grading Masterpiece

Based on the wear on the centre diamond (the key point), around the eye, mustache and chin, I would give it a VF30.

It has less wear than a VF20 might would have but a little more then a EF 40 I think.

It is nowhere near AU let alone AU 58.

Just my thought.

Re: Thanks Grandpa

Hello Beeny04, That was a nice gift from your Grandfather. Yes there is some value to what you have, unfortunately not a great value. It appears that some notes are circulated and some possibly uncirculated. The 1954 - $50 is very nice and has a nice serial number Try and avoid touching the possible...
