  1. Sorry guys, Haven't been getting any of your Pms, just logged in in passing and saw this.
  2. Cant wait, What do we have to do, and why.... ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Whenever I feel Blue, I start breathing again.
  3. What happened to 1520, did I fall asleep again..
  4. Have to wait until 1519 for me to participate, then I drop to 1516 and after that all the way down to 1226 and 1034. Hope you guys can go that far.
  5. I have a bag full of Large canadian cents for trade. I can trade singly or in multiples. I am mainly looking for pre 1900 foreign coins. Let me know if you have any interest in these....
  6. This is a Die clash, I have seen this type of thing on dimes mostly but, this is the first time on a penny.
  7. Too old looking I think for Prince Albert, as he died at a young age. Could be a German Nobel prize winner, do you think.
  8. :banana: What a great find, I have some Canadian coins like that but I never found them in change. CONGRATS
  9. I would say VF, but if you want to send me your E mail I can send you a pick...
  10. The only South African coin I have for trade is a 1936 3 pence..
  11. Has anybody got there coin yet. Nothing here still.
  12. According to an article I have just read in CCN the US mint is pulling the plug on circulating Presidential dollars, they will only be minting collector versions starting this year.
  13. I agree with Art, any information about coins (no matter there oregin) is a bonus to us collectors, if you want to talk South African coins on this forum go ahead, if you want to find out who is interested in your coins then post a thread and see how many members respond, the idea is to get things going then see where it leads you.
  14. This coin is a counterfeit, you can tell by the folds of the gown over the right shoulder, they show 3 folds whereas the genuine only has one. This coin was circulated in both Britain and North America. Counterfeights are actualy worth more than the genuins, A genuin like yours would fetch in FINE condition about $10.00, Your coin in the same shape is worth about $20.00.
  15. Wow, 21 Rupia is only 43 cents US, for a rare coin what a deal.
  16. It has been my experience that there are two basic ways of collecting coins, you can collect for fun or you can collect for profit. Collecting for fun is self explanatory, collecting for profit takes a little bit more research. The idea is to purchase a coin at as low a price as possible and sell at a higher price thus ensuring a profit, collecting coins with as low a mintage as you can is one way for example, I purchased 9 copies of the Queen Mum when it came out in 2004, I paid $49.99 each for them, I sold 8 of them for between $300.00 and $400.00 each and I have one left. What I am trying to say is, it makes no difference if it is gold/ silver or bronze, it all comes down to supply and demand, remember when it comes to a collectable it is only worth what another collector is willing to pay for it. FYI. the mintage on the Queen Mum coin was 9,996 I believe.
  17. Thank you Erwin for a very enlightning exchange of E mails and prompt payment for my Chinese bank notes.
  18. Details are sharp, yes i agree I would say it is ok..
  19. Got a presidential dollar today at a Canadian bank, never seen one before. The dude on it is Lincoln I think.
