Re: Good Find???

Personally I would spend the money to get them certified by a well known grading company and enter them in a top Canadian Auction house

Re: BCS vs CCCS vs PMG vs PCGS

If you live in Canada I would use the Canadian grading Companies I think they would be cheaper. I use PCGS True View hard slabs for coins it costs around $75.00 - $100.00 each with shipping both ways depending on how many coins a person sends in at a time. It would be cheaper for me to use CCCS hard...

Re: Assist on confirming leaves - 5 Cent 1909

I think you have both round + pointed are they cross or cross bow tie?

The 1909 ML (round) C/B is worth a little money even in VG-8 $250.00 in the Charlton Catalogue.

Re: 1903 Canada 5 cents Double large H?

I think a person would need the coin in hand as your last picture doesn't look doubled

Re: 1903 Canada 5 cents Double large H?

I think your correct in saying its a doubled H, it looks like its doubled to me also, there is a picture of one in the Charlton Catalogue for Canadian Coins. Small H over Small (SH/H). The die cracks are useful for Die Trackers tracking the different stages the coin die goes through as to when the d...

Re: 1859 doubled/repunched

That helps SurlyLung, the die crack you showed is actually leaf 11 but that's all good as I think it is a Haxby PC59-33- 17 + E19. If you are not familiar with the Haxby site go to (Haxby Catalogue of the Canadian 1859 Large Cent) when there push on Haxby numbers and find PC59-33, 17 + E19 it will h...

Re: 1859 doubled/repunched

Your picture's of the Reverse and Obverse are a little blurry is that a die crack at the bottom of leaf 9?

If there are any die cracks on the Obverse or Reverse maybe you could make mention of it as they are hard to see if any on your pictures that is a good clue to seeing what you might have.
