Re: RCM Proof Set Holders

Simple, they were made to remove.
Turn case over so Queens head faces up.
On the right hand side of the plastic case
you will see two little grooves. Place a small
screwdriver in there and pop the case out.
It snaps back in just as easily.

Re: Another 1937 $1

There are two varieties of the 1937 One Dollar,
Narrow Signature Panel and Wide Signature Panel.
What you have is a Wide Signature Panel.

Re: Magnetic Shiny 1964 Penny

It looks to me like that CENT has some sort of bezel on it.
You should be able to slide something under it between it and the coin
It has been plated to give it a silver colour and probably used in some form of jewelry

Re: 1937 $1

As you probably know, what you have is a Narrow Signature Panel Banknote. The book value for a regular B/A note in F-VF is $35-55.00. For a 4 digit Radar Note, all the book states is "Extremely Rare" which usually means that there have not been enough of them sold to set a price on. Maybe ...

Re: defining Specimen vs. Proof-like coins

Depends on what year you are referring.
Specimen Finishes vary. Can you post a picture
or at least describe what coin you are referring to?
You don't really give a lot of information to go by.

Re: 1976 Olympic silver 28 piece folder/stamp

That's too bad about the binder.
It probably would ha be been worth more with it.
At least now you know where it originated, I had
never see n or heard of it before.

Re: Banknote GUNC grading

Sorry but that note would not make a GEM UNC grade as it does not have near perfect centring.
By looking at the picture of the front only, it would probably grade at CHOICE UNC.

Re: 1976 Olympic silver 28 piece folder/stamp

I agree with Bill that those should be worth more than melt. I have a Volume II Charlton but there is no listing for them in there. Instead of a coin collector, I would say that perhaps a stamp collector might have more interest in them as they do appear to be First Day Covers. Perhaps put them on k...

Re: 1928 near and far variety

Looking at the coin sideways, they both look the same. The only difference I can see is that one is a lighter strike maybe giving the illusion of different spacing. As far as I know, only the 1926 has the two varieties. A fully dated matrix was used in 1928 so there should be no difference between t...

Re: 2015 - 10 Cents

I don't think it is a known variety.
Looks like a small die chip which is not uncommon.
Certainly not worth the cost of getting it graded.

Re: 1983 Dollar Coin off Axis

It's not uncommon. It can happen in any year.
I have a 1936 silver dollar that is out around 20 degrees.
There is no value added unless it is out at least 45 degrees.
If you find one that is out 180 degrees, then you have a winner.

Re: 1973 $1 bill asterisk consecutive

You might be able to get an extra couple of dollars,
the problem is trying to find some one to buy them,
there are just so many consecutive notes out there.
You would probably have a better chance trying to sell
them individually.

Re: 1942 Georgivs VI Penny error?

Looks like damage to me.
Can't see how this could have happened during
the striking of the coin.

I would grade it at VG8

Re: Dollar Bill

If uncirculated they are worth $2.00 each.
If circulated they are worth face value.
There where over 890 million of that series alone printed.
