Nice. Well I have no prizes in my collection. I do have a collection of silver dollars, but I only have the common one so everything from 35 67 accept for the 40's and some 50's. right now for some reason I'm buying a lot of American coins so I haven't bought any new silver dollars for awhile. But once I get my jobs in the summer ill be buying some semi key dates

Sorry, not set up for pictures yet. If you go by straight value it would be a 1925 1 cents ANACS MS64 Brown. Was listing for $3k when I bought it but just checked and it's showing $2.5k now. If you go by rarity it's my NFLD 1946C 5 cents. Mintage of only 2,041 for a circulation coin! ICCS EF45. I'm also kind of partial to this one I bought as "The Worst 1949 Silver Dollar I Ever Saw". I saved the pictures from the ad. It's so worn it's lost 10% of its weight. N.

I don't think we ever had a crown coin in circulation here. We started right off with the decimal system. Didn't even get a silver dollar until 1935; before that they were only paper.

Kuh85, that is such an awesome coin, I've never see any Canadian silver dollar worn that bad, amazing! I remember seeing an auction years ago for a set of Canadian silver dollars from the years 1935-1967.
Why this set was soo unique is because it was owned by Brian Cornwall, owner of I.C.C.S.
It was about thirty years ago ago B. Cornwall wanted to complete a set of Canadian silver dollars from the years mentioned above, however, the only criteria was that they had to be the most "worn" out he could find, date must be readable and they must have only natural wear without any notable gouges/scratches/cleaning.
A few years ago,Cornwall's completed set made up of similar pieces to your 1949 dollar sold for over $4,000.00. You can imagine a man that can afford and easily find MS-66/67 Canadian silver dollars right across the board for every year conceivable, chose the reverse.
He stated in an article I once read in The Canadian Coin News that it was the "greatest challenge of his Numismatic Carreer!"

'Lowball' sets, just like the one Brian Cornwall put together, are incredibly popular in the US. PCGS even has a registry for them, and folks compete for the lowest known!

I am working on a small cent lowball set.... One would think that the coin roll hunters who sift through box after box, would jump on this, but it does not seem to be popular in Canada.

Great looking coin, Geezer, PCGS gave it MS-62

Wonder what it would have graded at ICCS or CCCS?

Is it possible that your 1948 dollar has a slight die rotation?

These are not special due to their value but because they were my first large cents, bought at a flea market in the 80's when I was around 8. They were part of the reason that I fell in love with coins such large penny's amazed me they appear polished from 20+ years of fiddling with. Which is why I bought my daughter a bank of Montreal large cent when she was 3 y.o.. She loves it and I am looking for something for April when she turns 7.
