Re: Database & Rarity Question

Depends on what silver coins you are referring to. Most of the high mintage silver coins turned in are either damaged or well worn with only bullion value. If it is a rare coin, then it is in someone’s collection. There is no way to know exactly how many have been turned in to be melted but if it wa...

Re: 1988 struck on foreign planchet?

If the diameter is smaller, then it has either been spooned or is a

Re: Mystery coin

It is a common 1973 25 cent business strike with nearly 137 million struck.
It commemorates the 100th anniversary of the RCMP. Worth 25 cents in circulated condition
In the future, please crop your pictures, this will increase the size.

Re: *WA. New to Data Base

Definitely get it certified and handle carefully. Put it in a protective holder
to prevent any marks or crease's which can devaluate it greatly.
With the front being off centre, it will prevent it from being a top grade but
if you can get it certified uncirculated, it could be a five figure find.

Re: 1961 penny cracks

Much better photos.
It looks like it has been coated with something (varnish?) that has cracked.
Whatever it is it happened after it left the mint so it is considered damage.

Re: 1989 D Lincoln Memorial Cent with Doubling error

That is Die Deterioration Doubling (DDD) caused from a worn die.
There is no extra value for these.

Re: Pl coin sets

I don’t know of any special pages but you could probably use those plastic binder sleeves that they
for 8 1/2 x 11” paper. I just use a box I found that is about the right size.

Re: Proof silver dollar 1882-1982

That is Machine Doubling, another worthless type of doubling.
Please do not use screen shots, they are too pixilated to see fine detail.

You can usually find any coin by googling it if you want to compare.

Re: 1961 penny cracks

Please show a complete photo of both sides of the coin. Can’t really say from those photos.
Also do not use screen shots, they are too pixilated.

Re: 1958 cud on queens neck?

Can’t be a cud as they only appear on the edge of a coin.
Might be a die chip but a photo of the complete obverse may help.
Sometimes pictures can be too large and you lose perspective.

Re: 1970 struck through wire!

We need a COMPLETE photo of each side plus those pictures are too dark.
We have to be able to see all the detail on the coin in order to grade.
