Re: Does doubling on a coin increase its value?

Although some will say that the coin is actually "doubled" because of the split serifs, I think that it looks like Machine or mechanical doubling. It's caused by the dies being a little loose in the keepers. True repunched or restruck doublings most time DO increase the value, but your dollar has li...

Re: Not sure ?

I agree that there MAY be an area of strike through, but it has so much post-mint damage that it's hard to tell. The coin has led a tough life.

Re: Lincoln 1936 lincoln looks doubled or shifted please help

Hard to tell without it in-hand, but it looks like die deterioration doubling or possible Mechanical doubling, neither one of which is worth any extra value. Just keep it as a well-worn anomaly. There is also a D/C from the nose, again adding no value.

Re: 2004 Canada dime - Can anyone explain this?

It looks to me like the top nickel plating peeled of or is peeling off, letting the copper plate show through. I wouldn't sent it in, as the cost would far exceed the less-than-a-buck value. This may have been the original owner's attempt at an experiment.

Re: Best Calgary coin appraiser and how to sell?

Post your coin here. If you can't actually SELL a coin for $100, then you will spend more in fees, postage and insurance than the coin will ever be worth, depending on the TPG.

Re: Pretty 1914 large cent

The 2 Obv's look like 2 different coins. The 1st one looks like VF-30, just based on the crown and mustache. The 2nd photo looks like XF-40, maybe weakly struck Rev.

Re: Landon/Victoria North Collection

Follow this thread from another site (which has much more coinage traffic than here). A good friend of mine has quite a few Landon coins and is at the end of this thread:

Re: 1930 dime

From the photo, I can't see anything truly out of sort. I see the dark leaves and maybe a die crack (is it raised above the surface?). Some better photos and a little better explanation of what we are to see may help. I don't see anything that may be of any value.

Re: Error? What kind and would it bring any value

It doesn't look like an error of any kind. It looks like post-mint damage with metal displaced after getting whacked a few times.
