Re: Fake or mule

Just noticed this post.
I say it is fake, all you have to do is compare the date on the mule to a genuine business strike toonie.
Also on the reverse the security maple leafs are wrong.

Re: mint pack coins 1964

Reason is simple.
A MS coin is a Business Strike made for circulation and is hard to find in higher grades. (MS65+)
A PL coin was made for collectors, not circulation, so the average grade is PL65 with many higher.

Re: mint pack coins 1964

Two things-
First of all where do you get the grade of MS65 from.
Second, those are not MS coins, they are PL coins as those are PL sets, a big difference in price, for example,
a MS 65 quarter average eBay price is $32.12 while a PL average is $4.25.

Re: 1944 Double die

Looking forward to your picture but the correct terminology is Doubled Die which is completely
different from Double Struck.

Re: Canadian 2018 MS 68 50 cent peice

These were a non-circulating business strike that you bought in special wrapped rolls of 25 from the mint so the value would not be as high as a circulating business strike. I'm sure if you had a roll and checked it, you would find most to be MS65 and up so the odds of finding a MS67 or MS68 would b...

Re: 1945 Canadian Nickels with strike errors

No extra value. It is just caused by the Die wearing out.

Re: Another 1945 Nickel

That's just damage. Looks like someone tried to cut it.
Remember, it is only an error if it happens when the coin is being struck, anything after that is just damage.

Re: 1999 millennium coin set

I agree the mules are worth more, when I said the value of each individual coin, I didn't,t mean the face value.
The quarters might be worth more than face if any of them grade high MS.

Re: 1999 millennium coin set

If they are the ones I'm thinking off, those are aftermarket sets and as you can interchange the coins, I would have to say they wouldn't be worth much more that the value of each individual coin.

Re: Replacement Notes

Correct, any prefix ending with a X is a replacement. There is also the two different styles of a Theissen- Crow BBX replacement note you didn't mention.

Re: Replacement Notes

In the 1986 series, identification of a replacement note was made by the use of an "X" as the third prefix letter
so BRX would be a replacement note.

FYI-
There were 3,440,000 printed of that particular prefix

Re: pcgs graded gold coin

The average selling price for a 1913 $10.00 MS63 on eBay is $1508.00 so around there should be fair.

Re: 2019 D-Day Toonie

Looks like a plating bubble. The inner core is brass plate aluminum bronze and sometimes gas (air) gets trapped and expands forming a bubble. You should be
able to depress it with a toothpick.
