Re: 1967-1968 grading help

Hard to tell from those pictures but those probably grade
between VF30 and EF40. Your other coins may grade differently.

Also in 1967, some quarters were 80% Silver and some were 50% Silver.
In 1968, some were 50% Silver and some were pure Nickel.

Re: 1954

Your prefix is a good one.
There where only 80,000 printed with *H/F.
Hard to tell condition from those pictures but could be
worth in the 100's if uncirculated.

Re: 2007 Extra metal nickel

There is no way that could be plating from the mint. The planchets (blanks) that the mint strikes these coins from are plated before being struck. If by some small chance there was a bit of extra plating on the planchet, it would have been flattened with the pressure of the strike. The fact that wha...

Re: 2007 Extra metal nickel

I agree.
Whatever it is, it wasn't done at the mint. PMD

Re: 50 cents around 1910 i guess?

Can't be 1911, that was the year of the "godless" legends,
and this coin has "DEI GRA" on it.

Re: is this a 50 cents from 1895?

There were no 1895 50c coins produced.
Ungradeable without a date.
Worth bullion value.

Re: 50 cents around 1910 i guess?

It would have to be between 1912-1920.
Ungradeable without a date.
Probably worth bullion value but can't tell
if it's .925 silver or .800 silver.

Re: 50 cents 1904 with reversed faces

Not an error.
It wasn't until 1908 when Canada switched to a medal die axes.
I agree with G-4.

Re: 2000 W

There was a 2000W 50c piece produced .
It appears only in some of the 7 coin BU sets.
Some sets were produced without the "W" on the coins.
It was not produced for circulation so if you have one, it was broken out of a set.

Re: $2 Loonie planchet Toonie from 1996?

Hi again Darkstrike- When I said it was possibly a Toonie struck on a Loonie planchet, I was going by your statement of it being a one piece coin. If as you say now that it may have a core, this eliminates any chance of it being struck on a Loonie planchet. As the core of a Toonie is mainly copper, ...

Re: $2 Loonie planchet Toonie from 1996?

Hi Darkstrike- Very nice and rare find. From what I can see, you have a Toonie that was struck on a Loonie planchet. That is the 3rd one that I have seen. (One was in BC so I guess they travelled coast to coast.) The "smoothness" was caused by a weak strike on a thinner and smaller diamete...
