Re: Selling Canadian coinage Errors and Varieties

Do an archive search on this and other coin sites. Look in the "BST" forum on this site. If the country ever opens up again, go to a major show or two and talk to some dealers.

Re: Lincoln 1cent 1972 D prisoner cent & something?!

Re: Newbie needs a hand
