The obverse lettering on the word Gratia - REX on some Mint State coins I don't know for sure if Specimen coins had it but worth a look

Re: 1908 Mint Set

If its a true specimen set they trend at $5,500.00 Canadian in the 2019 Charlton Catalogue with large or small 8 on the 5 cent piece. A treasure to own.
EDIT: You might want to also look at the Cent and look for DDO

Re: Need help grading 1936 silver dollar

It looks to be EF-AU. We need pictures of both sides of the coin are required for grading and better close ups would also help with decisions.

You will have some enjoyable reading ahead of you Bill, with lots of key makers to watch for mentioned in the books of said years with excellent pictures for your reference of those coins. You will have a bit of an edge on others when looking for varieties with gained knowledge from books.

Yes I have seen a few web-sites and coin books that show prices for PL + SP coins but nothing for business strike coins I like others have a soft spot for such coins especially in the high grades. It just seems odd that there is no price guide for these coins as for eye appeal they have it 10 folds ...
