Hello, I saw a member who made a thread like this and put it in his signature - and I thought it was a great idea!

**Note**
My secret Santa list will be at the bottom of this post.

If you stumbled upon this thread and are interested in dealing with me, I have the same username on eBay;
My eBay account was made before I believe there was a dot ca version - Just to be clear, I live in Calgary Alberta.

I have not traditionally focused on high grade coins, upgrade as I saw fit, but these days I am generally much more selective on what I buy and most of my purchases are done at shows in person.

The following are "wanted" items for my Canadian circulation strike coin collection:

Quote:

Large Cents
1886 / 1887 / 1891; large leaves&small date / 1891; small leaves / 1892 / 1894 / 1900 (have, but it's polished) / 1905 / 1906 (have, but quite worn) / 1907 (have, but quite worn) / 1910 (have, but quite worn)

Small Cents
'05 p (zinc) / '06 'P'-zinc(error)* / '10 steel
* = I don't realistically expect to ever own this coin

5c
1964 EWL / '98W / '99 'P'

10c(nickel)
1980 wide "0" / 1980 Narrow "0" / '99 'P'

25c(nickel)
'92 Caribou / '97-'00 Caribou / '98 'W' / '00 'W' / '03 'W' / 2015 Flag-coloured /

50c(nickel)
'78 'round jewels' / '88 / '89 / '90 / '93 / '98 'W'/ '99 'p' / '00 'W' / '02 'P' / '03 'crowned portrait' / '04 'p' / '06 RCM logo / '08 / '09 / '10 / '16 / '18 / '19

loonies
'97 Loon / 99-'00 Loon / '98 'W' / '00 'W' / '03 'old obverse'(crowned) / '03 'W' / 2010 (have one, but not in super shape)

toonie
'98 'W' / '99 polar bear / '00 'W' / '02 "dot" / '03 'W'** / '06; double date 'maple leaf' / 2017 painted


**Secret Santa stuff**
I hope to have some inexpensive options below;

Firstly;
I started out as a penny collector, being a Canadian my Canadian penny collection is my favorite;
I am also interested in getting more American pennies, as I undertook collecting them when the penny was removed from circulation up here.
The following covers the full extent of my USA-penny collection:

Quote:

'Indian Head' pennies that I have:
1863(terrible shape) / 1882 / 1885 / 1888 / 1892 / 1896 / 1898 / 1905 / 1909 (incredibly terrible shape)

Lincoln "wheat" penny "want" list:
1909S-VDB / 1909S / 1910S / 1911D / 1911S / 1912D / 1912S / 1913D / 1913S / 1914D / 1914S / 1915(all three) / 1916S / 1917S / 1918S / 1921S / 1922D / 1924D / 1926S / 1927D / 1928D / 1928S / 1931 (all three) / 1932 (both) / 1933 (both) / 1939D

1959+ Lincoln penny "want" list:
1982S (proof only; but my book has a spot for one!?) / 2010 (mine has crud on it) / 2017 / 2018 / 2019


Here are maybe some more USA coin ideas;
I have old blue coin folders that I purchased unused/empty, so the following are from those books:

1913D / 1923 / 1937

1968D / 1969 (both) / 1970D / 1973 / 1974 / 1978 / 1982P / 1987P / 1990P / 1992P / 1997P

National park quarters 2010-2021 "want" list:

I also have an interest in both older British coins (mostly the large penny's) as well as pre-1949 German currency... and maybe even some post-1949 German currency too.

I really like British or Dominion coins, especially ones with Queen Victoria on the obverse;
The only Victorian era dominion coin I have is a well worn Jamaican penny dated 1890.

These are some of the more interesting to me older British coins I have:

Half penny:
1900 (poor) / 1919 (poor) / 1943 / 1944 / 1966

Large penny (I really like these):
1861 (very poor) / 1897 / 1900 (poor) / 1901 / 1903 (poor) / 1913 / 1921 / 1936 / 1938 / 1967

One shilling:
1950 / 1954 / 1956 / 1961

Two Shillings:
1947 / 1948 / 1955

Half Crown:
1933 /1935

I find WWII German stuff fascinating, and even more-so the allied (1945-1948) WWII issues (of which I have only one example (bold below):

1 pfennig:
1899d / '04a / '06g / '11A / '13a / '29a / '39a / '40a / '41a / '42a / '43a / '50j / '83j / '84g / '85j

2 pfennig:
1874 / 1938d / '38j / '39d / '39f / '67f / '70d / '71f / '74j / '78f / '84d / '88j / '89f / '90g /92f

5 pfennig:
1876g / 1876j / 1906d / 1908a / '24a / '24f / '25a / '36a / '38a / '38d / '39a / '39g / '41a / '41f / '49d / '49f / '49g / '49j / '50f / '72f

10 pfennig:
'1914a / '24f / '39g / '40a / '41a / '42g / '48f / '49j / '50d / '50f / '50j / '68g / '84j / '87j / '88d / '91g / '93d

50 pfennig:
1920a / '35f / '36a / '39j / '49d / '49j / '71d / '74f / '75d / '80d / '80f / '80j

1 mark:
1936a / '70f / '76j / '77d / '80j / '90d
500 mark: 1923a

& "Ost Deutsche"
1pf: '52a / '75a
5pf: '72a / '75a
10pf: '68a / '79a / '82a
50pf: '81a

not really;
my "collection" of British coins is maybe nine old pennies, and less than that number of older half pennies (one of which is a Queen Victoria issue).

To say "I'm looking for them" is, in and of itself a stretch, because I am interested in them, but they are there as possible inexpensive 'Christmas exchange' options.

I'd humor an exchange for them, but at this point really only get them should a (percieved) good deal come along.

Unfortunately for me, most of my latter 'UK collection' was sent to the UK as payment... to a facebook member who apparently wanted to scam me.
Bummer.
