Re: 1938 1 Cent Double 938 Left Leaf & more!

It looks like machine/mechanical doubling (MD). There is one listed elsewhere on this site under the appropriate denomination and date. Once you click on the specific date, at the bottom of the page, you will find varieties & errors that have been submitted by members. Since the title of the error l...

Re: 1967 1 Cent DDRs and DDOs

Without seeing the lettering, I'd say Mechanical/machine doubling (MD) with die deterioration doubling. Both are errors, not DD's.

Re: 1 Cent 1897 (low 7)

Actually ICCS quit certing the 1896 "far 6" and Charlton and Trends will quit as well. A variety is one specific type of anomaly that will have certain markers. The "far 6" had any number of separation degrees from the 9. The first coin to be certified as a "far 6", I helped the collector get it thr...

Re: 1 Cent 1897 (low 7)

The last digit in the date (7) was handpunched into the dies for that year. Because of that (and it taking more than one whack of the hammer to the punch) you will have some differences in the position of the 7 with the rest of the digits. You will have high, low, near, far, canted, etc depending on...

Re: Newly discovered 5 cent 1867-1967 **looking for buyers/authenticators**

When you take photos of individual coins, make sure that they are taken straight down (perpendicular) toward the coin. I see lots of coins and see nothing of any great (or even small) value. The date on the '67 5 cent looks very strange and I have no idea what the other depiction is that's on the re...

Re: 1968 siver dimes

If you hold each of the coins 3" or so above a hard table and drop them, and see if they sound the same. Even .500 silver will have a nice little ring.

Re: 1968 siver dimes

According to my reference book, Philly didn't strike any silver dimes .. only nickel. Both Philly and Ottawa struck nickel coins. Only Ottawa struck .500 silver coins. Phila coins have grooves with a square bottom and Ottawa coins have V-shaped bottoms. I think that you have 1 nickel coin and one 50...

Re: monnaie ou jeton

Go to this site.. it is this site in French (the way that it started) with much more traffic:

http://numicanada.com/

For those that don't speak French (like me), there is a French to English translation link.
