Re: 2006 no logo no p magnetic penny

There's pretty good wear on the coin, in addition to the marks/environmental damage. I wouldn't expect mush extra value at all. It's a little above the 10 for a dollar jar, but not much.

Re: 1935 $1...Opinions please

The normal rule of thumb for TPG or not is that, if you can actually sell it for more than $100, then finding a TPG may be in order. I think that your coin, which was kept and/or hoarded for many decades because it was the first, would still only be book-priced at about $100, not what you could sell...

Re: OK people, let's start promoting this website

I also have never seen any ad, ever, to pop up on here, but I use a desktop with Windows. I think that ads are just payback for using a cellphone. I have never owned one or even know how to operate one, but my wife is always on hers talking to people, not for the internet.

Re: Need help for value of these coins

As I've said before, NGC is not noted for their accuracy in grading Canadian coinage. Those grades could be high by 2-3 points. ICCS charges extra for certing variety coins. You may have to pay more than the coin will ever be worth if you get them regraded. If you enjoy what they are in now, I'd jus...

Re: Need help for value of these coins

I don't think that you can ID a grade closer than 1 or 2 points, if the photos are through plastic. Also, NGC is not noted for their accuracy with Canadian coinage

Re: OK people, let's start promoting this website

Yes, I've noticed that fewer and fewer folks post any more. It's nice to answer questions from the newbies, but that runs to a little boring after a while. I enjoy making comments, but maybe people are just getting tired of using computers any more. I just wish that people would learn to live withou...

Re: 1935 SWL Double on XXV

Agree with coinguy on this. It is MD, caused by the die being a little loose in the keeper/holder. It's not really "doubled" and it's an error, not a variety. It will add little to no extra value.

Re: Help

It looks like the 1967 was there, but crushed out from rocks in the street, so you only see a "19". I'm not in to modern cents, but it may have been a special issue with those 2 dates. But it's worthless.

See if you can take one at a 90 degree angle, not tilted. I can't even guess.
