This is a Post

Do you have a coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

I'm still here answering questions just not posting much. Apparently getting a master (or is it masters) in engineering is proving tougher than I expected.

So I leave you with a statue I pass every once in a while.

Hi,

Recently I found a silver 2008 Canadian nickel with an irregular copper pattern covering slightly under half of both sides and the edge of the coin. The copper part is almost identical in color to the new shiny Canadian penny. In parts of the copper portion the borders seem to blend into the silver, while in other areas the border is clearer. I'm wondering if this is a genuine error coin, or if someone was having a go at home electroplating, and if it is a genuine error, how much it may be worth. Thanks.

Sounds like improper annealing, the coin is made of steel, copper, and nickel so it may be a mixing error.
This is a fairly new error and haven't seen anything about these types go for about $175.00 if graded in MS-60.
The only way to make sure is have it graded or ask the grading companies if others have submitted this error.

Hi, it's great to have found your blog! I'm an "out of pocket" collector and I just love this stuff! I have a rag-tag blog where I keep track of the things I find, in hopes of helping others, and I'm certainly adding you to my blog roll links. :)
I always felt a little out-of-sorts growing up, because I was interested in these things, and it's a joy and relief to find others who care for nifty old things! Peace out!-- Tree, http://curiocastle.blogspot.com

Sorry but I can not see the back of the coin just the date.

I would need to see the entire back even if damaged because the front tells me nothing.

That said a damaged coin usually only has metal value.

Austin said...

Here is the picture of the 1899 dime back. Hope you can tell where it is from!

It's from Hong Kong about $2.20 only for the silver content.

Although in fine undamaged it is about $2.50, so no major loss.

I was wondering if you could tell me if these confederate bills are real and what you know about this coin.

I cannot tell if they are fake only someone in hand can tell, that said they look real.

1862 Lucy Pickens $1 is about $150.00

1864 $5 is about $50.00 but value changes by signatures and I do not recognize these signatures.

Coins is from Egypt
1293(Muslim year) 10(regional year) or 1884 AD
5/10 Ghirsh
About $2.00
Copper-nickel

This coin is dual dated under the ٥ is ١‎ ٢‎ ٩‎ ٣‎ which is the series date 1293.
The actual date is under the front symbol ١‎ ٠‎ = 10.
Your coin pictures are sideways.

5/10 Ghirsh or 5/10 Qirsh, spelling varies
