Re: 1996 2 dollar uncirculated coin

I wouldn't send in in to a TPG ... you will eat up any profit you will ever get for the coin even if it is German. I have a friend who has a number of the German planchets. He is called the twoonieman, but is not a member of this site, but frequents all the Ottawa/Montreal shows.. You also need to s...

Re: collectors who sell coins.

If you have an established coin club within a hour or so, I would try to sell them there. There's no tax, no shipping, no fees and they are all collectors looking for a good deal. Most clubs run a small auction during each monthly meeting. They also usually allow a seller to "set up a small shop" at...

Re: 1931 Dime AU details - Damage

Hugh Powell is more than just "a guy at the coin show". He is a very astute long-time dealer who carries many many extremely high-grade coins. You couldn't have found anyone, short of Sandy Campbell, who knows more about high-grade coins and what to collect. Hugh is highly respected in the Canadian ...

I would use portrait, rather than landscape and use as much natural light as possibl, not a flash.

Re: 1931 Dime AU details - Damage

I can't tell "wear" from the photos. It's either glare, luster, or wrong kind of light. Try to get them right-side up if possible. The Obv doesn't look AU. It's better to get maybe a little lower grade, but nice with no damage. The nick will drop it down.

Re: 1943 Newfoundland DIme with either PMD or MD , Help Determine Please

The 9-4 mark is a gouge from something sharp striking the coin in circulation. Without seeing the coin in hand, I'd say the 1-3 "extra" metal is either die deterioration or a slight hub doubling (a term I use from the older days). The gouge reduces any premium that the coin may have had and the "dou...

Re: Help with an estimate for my 1969 error coin

I don't see any error ... just a coin within normal tolerance. Any stamped, pressed, struck small metallic item will have small differences as the things are spit out. Just like nails, screws, paper clips or bobby pins ... no two are exactly alike when they emerge. Coins are common-use everyday item...

Here is the CCF link. Pay attention to the 2 guys that had similar notes! You will need to get it certified and I would not do it with CCCS or ICCS:

I've never seen a bill like that on any forum. Surely someone will post an answer to your question. I posted a link to this thread on the CCF site.

Re: Guide book for Newfoundland coins?

Someone just wrote a book on all them. You should make this same post for a thread on the CCF website .. you'll have much better luck. There are very few people who come to this site for the forums.

Re: 1938 silver dollar corrosion

It isn't rust .. has to be some other chemical reaction ... or else the coin is a fake and it has iron in it.

It could be a trade dollar for use in the Province, but that's just a guess.
