Hello everyone I am new to the forum and this is my first post.
I had collected as a young man then got out for many years and have recently renewed my interest in collecting coins and tokens.
I am in Ontario, Canada
I have noticed in the Charlton catalogues that they reference this coin but state that none have been found to date. Does anybody know for sure if that this strike currently exists in any strike for the 1977 Canadian nickel dollar ( to the best of the forums knowledge)?

Welcome to the CCF

I have only heard of 3 varieties for the 1977 Dollar
Attached Jewel SWL
Detached Jewel SWL
Detached Jewel FWL

If there is a fourth variety, I have never seen one.
Perhaps SPP-Ottawa our Nickel dollar expert can
shed more light on this.

Does not exist, despite the odd auction of one and sometimes even a PL strike certified by ICCS. What folks have to remember is, that both jewels must be firmly attached.

Ultimately, the detached jewels and short waterlines are a working die polishing variant for both sides of the coin. The master matrix and master die did not have these phenomena. For some reason, combination of fresh obverse dies (with attached jewels) and fresh reverse dies (with full waterlines) were never used.

I don't see where Charlton references the variety you speak of. Except that it states on page 220 that the AJ/FWL has not been found.

Thanks for the input but I feel that my front jewel is attached on both points. The second jewel is as pictured in the Charlton and I have full waterlines. It has been graded by ICCS as an SP-67 : attached jewel: WL

I would love for someone else to evaluate my coin to confirm or dispute its existence.

Just post a clear photo of both sides and we can settle the dispute.
Without pictures there is no way to help, we have to see what you have.
