Re: 1982 Constitution Dollar Weight

Thanks for your inputs , it isnt a big thing i just thought it would be easier to determine if you had a thick or thin planchet by its weight rather then trying to measure it thickness. and yes coinguy i thought they were 100% nickel till i read the RCM report that henrysmedford highlighted!!!!!!!

Re: 1982 Constitution Dollar Weight

thanks but seems strange 1968 to 1982 they used a planchet 2.62 mm thick then 1982 to 1986 the planchet was only 2.55 mm but the weight did not change, 15.62 g i guess the one planchet was 99% Nickel and the other 99.9% nickel I wonder what the other metal was to make up the last 1% to .1%

Re: 1947 ML Silver Dollar

I would have to agree , with only 21135 of the 1947ml made it’s surprising that the don’t demand a higher value!!! And I think I have seem more of the 1948 for sale on auction sites then I ever have the 1947ml.
Anyone out there have a explanation???

Re: Silver Nickels

Coin guy your technically correct but I’m a bit with LDW, I have a hard time not calling a 5 cent coin a nickel . The 5 cent coin made today is still a nickel to me :D . Hard for me to break old habits.

Re: What you collect and why

Welcome to the forum Canadian Banknotes, great to hear your story of currencies collecting. I agree with you on the great art work of bank notes. But somehow I go to coin shows and often come home with both notes and coins.

Re: 1925 1¢

Can’t help with grade or what might have cause the discolouring but I like it the way it looks!!
Not a lot of ware on it so I think it would grade reasonably high.
