Re: Books on Grading

I finally saw the book.

"Guide for Grading Coins of Canada" by Andre Langlois.

It is EXCELLENT.

I believe one the executive from our Calgary Club has talked to Andre about buying a number of the books for our club members.

Just hoping he does it soon.

I WANT ONE.

Re: 1921 Canadian 50 cent needs verification

Hi Dan, Thank you for trying to verify the details for me. Attached are 5 new photos. All of these are of a very high resolution. Hopefully one is good. If not I can go back to the original before I added the circle. Sorry for the delay. Thanks again. http://www.coinsandcanada.com/forum/class/test/D...

1921 Canadian 50 cent needs verification

A friend and I own what we believe is a 1921 Canadian .50 cent coin. Unfortunately it is so worn that it is hard to verify this. We have checked it out under a very powerful microscope and can just make out parts of the second 1. I tried to take pictures of it with a 90mm macro lens but it is extrem...

Re: 1 found my 1954 dollar z/z1000000

If this were an UNC, Charlton's book value based on a graded note would be $550. To get that would not be likely. I am having a problem trying to grade it due to the quality of the picture, however at best I would give it is FINE due to the creases and soiling. It may actually be a VG. Based on Char...

Re: $5 1972 RS

Hello shunter Hold off racing to get this bank note graded. I am not a dealer, just a collector, but I am reasonable with my grading. Usually harder then a dealer. It is hard to tell grade from pictures, however this is what I have noticed on the bank note. - first all corners are either bent or cli...

Re: FPN abbreviation

Not necessarily. It is at different places on different bills and series. Sometimes they are very obvious and other times it is well hidden. Also don't forget that there were actually a few bills series without FPN's/BPN's. Check your bank note's specific info with the Charlton book to see if your n...

Re: 1986 $2 bank of Canada

I don't have a current Charlton's Bank Note book, but I do have Edition 26 which is 2014. In it on page 415 you will see single folds, which are relatively common. The price for a 1986 $2.00 is $40 based on an UNK. Based on your picture, your note is no better a VG, so if you refer to page 372 of th...

Re: Lightw4re please fix add picture problem

Thanks Lightw4re,

I tried posting a picture this time with Firefox and it worked fine.

It seemed to a problem with IE. Will have to look into it further.

Thanks again.
