Re: 1996 $2 German Planchet 2 Dollar Toonie *Broken pearls?

Welcome to the Forum
First, a German planchet is not an error, there were 10 million produced in Germany to help with the

That extra string of “beads” you see is just damage

Re: error or what

Not an error, that is the way they all are. Just check others 1/2 penny bank tokens and compare.

Re: Weird shape of "0" of 1960 date

It has taken a hit distorting and flattening the letters and number.
Just a damaged coin.

Could you supply a picture, there are a couple of things it could be but would have to see it first.

Re: 10 dollars 1937 - Coyne-Towers - Prefix A/T

There were also 10 million of the O/D prefix printed.
Is it certified UNC or is this your own assessment?

Re: 2006 10 year rotated core

What Bill said.
Have seen this quit a few times where the core has been deliberately rotated.

Re: 1954 Banknotes

Value always depends on condition and prefix. You have not provided either one.

Re: 10 dollars 1937 - Coyne-Towers - Prefix A/T

Hard to evaluate without a picture of both sides. All I can tell you is that there were 10 million
with the prefix A/T printed, the maximum for any series.

Re: 1979 Dime Error?

Compare it to other 1979 dimes, I think you will see that this normal.
Certainly not an error in any way.

Re: uncirculated sets from RCM

Re: 1 cent 1929 Canada

Thanks for the reverse photo. Always post both sides when posting, this can be important such as in this case. What you have is the regular 9 variety. The rim on the obverse is not an error, it has been flattened after it left the mint somehow and would be classed as damage. The rims are formed on t...
