  1. I've done my in depth research, and it states that ALL Canadian nickels in the proof sets are made of nickel. The one I have, which is still in the protective package along with the other coins released in 1964, is made of steel. I found this out by accident when I was using a magnet to test other coins in my collection. Any information on what to do would be appreciated.
  2. Thank you for your info. Yet, I beg to differ, as of date I've found 2 2017P cents with the wam and 1 2017D with wam, and several dozen of each of the cam variants.
  3. All the 2017 P cents I've found so far are close AM. Are there any of that year that are wide AM?
  4. That is a road rash trash penny. Best thing you can do is spend it
  5. Looks to me like he is referring to the statue of Lincoln inside the memorial. And to me, no it's not a rare as several coins I have has the same thing. It comes from wear upon the coin. But, take the cent to a dealer or send it in to be graded, so that your mind is satisfied with the results.
  6. Coin was passed down through the family since 1911. In last 5 years, I've had offers ranging from the melt value up into the 30k range. Already know it's genuine, my question is, "should I hang onto it, or get it graded and sell it"?
  7. Found this penny a long while back, to me it looks like it was struck without the copper. Opinions please.
  8. If you was in Kentucky, I'd suggest Mid America Rare coin galleries in Lexington, Jeff Garrett is very well known in the field.
  9. And the pictures doesn't do any justice either.
  10. The other day I got some change back after a transaction and noticed that the country roll wrapper said U.S.Mint on it, one of the quarters given to me in change had a mirror finish and no scratches. 1967 by date. I've looked online to see if it was a proof...nope, none were struck for that year. The coin facts guide I have downloaded doesn't have anything graded above a MS 69, and that's not like what I have. Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated.
