Re: Is NGC better than ICCS

I agree with dbcoins.

Knowledge is the best "grading" options.

TPG could be only useful for expensive coins to protect both seller and buyer. And could speed up negotiation. But again never buy the holder. Knowledge is always the best protection.

Re: I believe I have a error coin for new brunswick quarter

Please try to post new pictures with better focus. That will help us to figure out what you are seeing.

Pointing the area with red arrows could also help.

Re: Think I found a new error for 2003 quarter

Newguy78,

to help us to understand the error, can you explain with your own words what you are seeing?
And your description should be supported by the appropriate pictures.

Re: nickel pressed into penny

I understand it's the same size and weight as a penny.
Is it magnetic or not?

For this one, looks like Die Deterioration. Assuming you are referering to the small lines just below the beads.

Re: Canadian 25 cent 1867-1967 found something

M.K. Blais catalog lists this coin à 6$ in MS60.
Your coin is circulated, so that will be less.

MD is probably one of the most frequent error type we can find in Canada.

You will find other exemples here:

Re: Canadian 25 cent 1867-1967 found something

It's probably a "Die Shift" (aka Mechanical Doubling).

Is it visible on other areas of the Legend?

A complete obverse picture will help.

Re: *BM binary 1 Dollar Bank Note

Very nice note. You may also check if there's the FPN (Front Plate Number). If there's no number, there's an additional premium on this note. See the reference below for additional information about the FPN. https://www.bwjm.ca/pub_1954nfpn.php Regarding the database, I can't help you. I could sugge...

Re: Adjustable Platform for coin photography

I just completed the manufacturing of a new batch of this tip/tilt mount. The price is still 16$, including shipping. It's a very useful tool for coin photography. You can safely adjust the coin angle with respect to the camera to maximize the image quality and contrast without manipulating directly...

Remember, we are talking about serial numbers.

Re: Contentious Binary $50 2012 Canadian Note

I think we need to use the formal definition of Binary Note from Charlton Catalog.
So only 0 and 1 can be use.

Re: 1967 Double Die?

I agree with a Machine doubling. If you want to see what a Double Die looks, take a look at this link. Your will see really nice DDO. https://www.coincommunity.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=363592&SearchTerms=1967,double,date You have to look at the "plit Serif". It's the best clue for DDO or DDR.

Re: 1968 Dollar

I agree with you. I vote for Mechanical Doubling :Chinois:

Traditional Flat field Doubling is usually more related to Proof coin manufacturing where a double strikes techniques is used.
