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: Brother can you spare a grade...2nd opinion appreciated

I see no wear, but what is what looks like crinkly surface? What had it been stored in? I'll say 62

Agree with coinguy ... a marketing ploy for people that have their searches keyed to the highest prices.

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.

How many coins do you have and most denominations? Do you have a Charlton guide or Canadian Coin News "Trends"?
BTW, I live in Burlington and another avid collector is here as well.

Re: 2006 10th anniversary specimen

The centers are copper-nickel plus some aluminum. Without seeing it, I'd guess that there was some kind of chemical reaction at the mint, during a wash/rinse, that turned the copper-nickel-aluminum silvery or it came from the holder.

Re: What appeares to be a dime strike

Well, dryer coins in all shapes and sizes, as well as appearance. It didn't come from a mint that way.

Re: What appeares to be a dime strike

Maybe a "dryer coin" or someone playing games.

Go through this old thread and many many others that deal with dryer coins and what they look like. They are NOT banging around inside the dryer:
