Re: 1954 NM PREFIX

Not all prefixes are included in the listings. If yours is not there, then go by the blank space
under prefixes at the top. That includes any common prefix not listed. There are just too
many to list them all.

Re: 1995 Reverse ring in bead

I agree, or it could be from a coin rolling /wrapping machine, quite common.
In any event, it wasn't done during the striking of the coin so it is PMD.

Re: 1974 nickel large size 5-cents coin

The only thing I can think of is that it is a "Texas Coin" although I have never seen one made
from a Canadian Nickle. If you could get the exact weight, this may confirm it.

Re: 1973 banknote not listed in the database

makecents

What you have is the common 3 letter prefix. There were over 890 million of this series printed
so they are pretty common.
If you are looking for a value, unless they are a high grade like CU or GU they are only worth face value.

Re: Regina 60 Years

You didn't give any description so

Re: Missing digit on one dollar bill

I agree
A picture is necessary before anyone can help. I have never seen one where the digit is completely missing.
There is always a part of the digit showing above or below the numbers.

Re: Mark on a 50 cent coin

It looks to me like it has taken one or two hits with something round. You can see some displaced metal. Unless you were there at the time, it is hard to say exactly what caused the damage. Only thing for sure is that it did not happen during the striking of the coin so it would be classed as PMD (P...

Re: Mark on a 50 cent coin

Whatever it is, it shouldn't be there. Can you post a closeup of that area only?
It seems to be in the shadows and is hard to make out any detail.

Re: 1955 One Dollar Coin

If you want to make it look better, clean in Acetone. This will not hurt your coin in any way. I usually always clean my new raw coins in Acetone when I receive them to get rid of any oils etc. that may have accumulated. Soak them at least 24 hrs and rinse after removing. Not sure if it will remove ...

Re: 1954 bills

If they have been folded they can't be UNC so wouldn't be worth much over face value.
Just keep them as a souvenir of times past.

Re: 1954 bills

You don't say what condition they are in so unless they are in pretty much uncirculated condition, they are not worth much over face value as they are both common prefixes.

Re: 1 cent 1970 on wrong planchet

Looks like it has been plated then. Not unusual back then as a high school experiment. You can see on the
Reverse where some of the plating has come off.

Re: 1 cent 1970 on wrong planchet

The weight of a 1970 cent is supposed to be 3.24g so that seems about right. Is that the actual colour
or is it a copper colour.
