It"s really hard to value one of a kind coin, they generally never trade again for decades, the secret is not too pay too much for it, take the 1911 dollar the last sale from previous owner lost 300 to 400K even on a smaller scale the 1992 mule 25 cents lost like 25,000 bucks. The only way to find true value of this coin is to place it in a major auction and the market will tell

I don't think there is another 44 tombac, the colour is so obvious that someone will notice by now, I was trying to example well known 1 or two off examples where the marketplace was really hyped and the person probably paid 4 to 5 times the real market value for the 1992 mule quarter. Just a couple days ago a beautiful upset die Constitution dollar sold for around 16 K there are around 5 or so they trade ever so often to have a market guide

Agree - it should just be called "one-of-a-kind". Happened upon this thread because my father is the owner of this unique coin.

Wow, if your father owns such a rare coin, I wonder what your collections like!

This coin is also in one of the strangest PCGS holders ever... The Regency Holder
https://www.PCGS.com/holders/TheRegency

It is also probably the only Canadian coin in a PCGS Regency Holder.

I think there were about 700 coins put in regency holders, but I'm guessing many coins got cracked out of them.

I do believe there are samples available that originated from the RPoC.
seem to have something stuck in my mind that ebay had some listed a while back.
However, am not 100% on this.

I'm pretty sure I saw a Ms 1939 dollar in one of those holder, strange enough...


Edit: here is the coin in question :

Can I be honest and tell you that I'm already overwhelmed at the thought of what I'll have to do about his collection when he someday passes? He is a knowledgeable and passionate numismatist and his collection is large. I personally know nothing about coins, nor do I have the interest. But I guess I'll be forced to learn a thing or two when the time comes. Ugh.

Yes, this is the listing I created back in 2018 when my father asked me to auction the coin for him.

Canadian Coin News also published an article about it.

Wanna make an offer? :-) ha ha.

Not a chance. From what I hear, this is a 1944 off-metal error., and not an intentional strike. Much like how this 1943 is an off-metal error.

Honestly, I would put more value on this one: https://www.icollector.com/50-CENTS...-3_i19827648
