Re: HELP!!

I've been on this site for a good number of years and never get any ads or popups. And there is an "attachments" tab, actually an "insert image" tab when you post or reply. I think that you need to activate an ad blocker for going to sites.

Re: 1859 doubled/repunched

Here is the link for the Haxby site. BTW, the leaves on the Reverse are numbered clockwise from the top, with leaf #1 being at about 12:30. For the 1859's there is always a vine break at 7 and another at 13 .. a vine break at leaf 2 comes later on the the mintage year. Yes, your D/C is at 11. There ...

Re: 1859 doubled/repunched

Can you post some good photos of the complete Obv & Rev, the Reverse especially. You have shown a few markers that are common to a couple scarcer coins. The "C" in Canada, like yours, is a marker for 4-5 other Reverses. The doublings of the date digits are fairly common .. the reverse dies took a be...

Re: Rim dings

I'm with Coinguy ... why would you ever want to have it graded? The coin will never be worth more than face value.

Re: Denticles

Go ahead and google "denticle coins" and just go through the 100's of definitions from site posters during the last 20 years. Some pretty famous collectors have definitions there and some say that they've used the term for the last 30 years. To me, they are elements of the coin design to fill the di...

Re: 1943 Tombac

I think that it's just PMD, since the heavy scrape goes through both the fields and the design. It looks to me like something heavy and sharp started digging into the Reverse just to the right of the 9. It then carried on ENE through the design, carrying metal with it and deposited it on the "A".

Re: 1974 Canadian pennies, clipped and?

This particular discussion site gets very little traffic and many gurus or authorities don't frequent this place. I would suggest that you post your thread and images on Coin Community Family (CCF) in this Canadian section: https://www.coincommunity.com/forum/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=139 I think that you ...

Re: Canada 5 cents 1891

Yes, they look like clashes .. I never saw them in your first posts. Examine the shape of the clashes .... they should be the mirror image of the knot/bow and ribbon at the end of the wreath at the bottom of the reverse. It's much easier to see with the coin in hand.

Re: Canada 5 cents 1891

As I put in the other forum that you posted in, what I see are not "clashes" ... it appears to be some die deterioration doubling and Mechanical/machine doubling; may even a few repunches.

Re: Canada 5 cents 1891 additional images

You should submit the images and verbiage to this Canadian site: https://www.coinsandcanada.com/coins-prices.php?coin=5-cents-1891&years=5-cents-1858-1901 There's nothing like it in their error/variety section. That's a neat coin! It looks like mechanical or machine doubling(MD). Or could just be di...

Well, we'll let spp chime in on this one, since he's the error guru, especially clips.

Re: The Value of my Canadian Bill's....HELP???

I agree with GBELEC. I give bills like this to the paperboys/girls for Xmas or during their normal collection days. I also get 250 nickel dollars every year to give to the cart girls or waitresses at the golf course or our Monday morning breakfast place with friends. I donate small bags of older for...

Re: The Value of my Canadian Bill's....HELP???

for a bill collector, any fold, even where a corner was once turned over makes them quickly loose any value at all .. unless they are scarce to start with.
