This thread is great to have come across, I just made the plunge and went Newfie today and bought a 20 cent lot 11 dates and 17 50 cent pieces. I tried bids on lots of 1 and 5 cent date sets nice grades f or better for most. They went for very little still a bargain for sure.
I decided a while ago to put together a marintine set.I think it's undervalued it would not take to many people like myself to get interested and gobble up those low mintages.I will post pics when I get them, 28 dates/varieties.

That's awesome! I can definitely say that you aren't losing money and should almost always be able to turn a profit on your newfie coins.

If anyone has any questions about varieties just ask!

I actually came across some NFLD coins in change while visiting St. John's last year.
All this discussion and my starter coins have convinced me to start collecting them.
Is there a good reference list online for NFLD coins?

Hmmm. The PGCS one looks like it has leprosy (some will get the irony).

Such a high grade raw coin on eBay requires a certain amount of suspicion, doesn't it? This is something that screams needing to be verified.

Things that disturb me on the obverse:

The left dot seems too large and perhaps not centered between the V and N properly (looks closer to the V)
The second : in D:G: - That looks wrong. The dots are too big. And they are too low, with the lower dot below the legend band. And the top serif on the G looks wrong too.

Anyone with a coin in hand that can validate these as legitimate quirks of the 1873 Obv 1?

I can definitely confirm the D:G: are in the right position as mine I have here looks the same, but I have the 1873H so I can't check the left dot.

Actually looking closely at the G's neither of mine match book images or any of the coins I've seen. I can't find any coins that match book images either. They all look so mangled on the serifs... Might be how they all are.

Well, thank goodness for Newfie coins. They are hot at the moment and are my best seller when I sell privately or put coins up for auction. It has been a long, long, long time coming. And they deserve their time in the sun.

Here's another 1873 NF-1: 150642429739

What are the odds?

Compare the serif, and the position and size of the dots.

BTW, anyone know the story on the 1873 and 1873H Newfoundland 5c?

The combined mintage is claimed to be 40K, but clearly that is way out of whack with the observed rarity. Is this another mint/melt like 1921?

Interesting thread. Nova Scotia had coins? Any other pre-confederation issues from provinces?

Yes, I have a few Newfies.

No jokes, just the facts.....
