Re: uncut uncirculated 2 dollar bills

With any kind of price guide, whether it is coin, bills, tokens, etc, that is not what you can actually SELL the item for. As with most guides, you would be lucky to get 50% of what the book says from any dealer and most probably less than 70% to a private party. You need to find Ebay or auction act...

Re: Straight clipped planchet?

I think it's post-mint that something sliced it. I see no indication of anything disfiguring any part of the T & H in Elizabeth or the S in dollars. I think that there would be a bulge there with nothing holding back the metal from flowing.

Re: The 1964 dot Penny.

Well, someone is going to come to the harsh realization that he paid $275 too much for a coin and someone else's opinion.

Covid & border security

If you live in Canada and contemplate going into US, forget it! I got my 2nd call from the VA in Buffalo to schedule my Covid vaccine injections (the 1st notice was 3 weeks ago). I was all set to go down to Buffalo (50 miles) on Mar 1 and get the 2nd one Mar 22 and scheduled them. Even in past borde...

Re: Got a 2017 mint set. Unopened. Wondering what kind of error is on the sail?

I don't use TPG's. I'm only passing along what I have heard. It will cost you at least $25-50 more than just a straight graded coin for the error to be mentioned, depending on which TPG that you use, plus tax, postage and insurance. I'm sure it will cost well more than the coin will ever be worth.

It's going to cost you a pretty penny to get that graded, especially if you want the error mentioned/referenced.

Yes, zinc-coated steel cents struck during the war. Copper was being used for military applications, including ammo.

Re: Penny roll find

Acetone would remove the glue, but I'd leave it as they are for the oddity of it. Your group is worth 2 cents and no more.

Re: The 1964 dot Penny.

You'll find it hard to get a response without a photo. A dot on any of the cents is not a "variety", but rather an error. They are all die chips and not something put there by the mint. It will cost you far more to certify it than it will ever be worth ... many times more. Just put it in a holder an...

Re: Very strange 2 Dollars 1996

The core is easy to separate from the outside ring with heat or chill. Just someone's making use of a few tools to try to create a rarity. Since the coins are struck with the core already intact, it is impossible to have something like that.

Yes, post mint damage, but who knows what specifically happened.
