I am always on the hunt for the high 9 cent. This one is in a decent grade. It comes with a little extra fun!

Are we talking about the last 9? Yours looks like a low 9 http://coinsandcanada.com/coins-pri...nt-1920-1936

Here is a certified High Nine to compare with yours.
See how the last nine on yours falls below the base of the 2
compared to the genuine where the bottom of the nine is parallel to base of the 2.

I agree it is not as high as some. But its not low either I don't think. I think the wear on the coin/shadows cause the line on the last photo to be a bit off.

That is what is sometimes called a 'medium 9'.
Sort of in between a High and Low nine.

Your right Coinfrog, it is a low 9.
Had just looked at Medium 9 when I posted and
it must have stuck in my head.
Thanks for the correction.

Never mind drawing lines on your coins - compare the gap between the 2 and the last 9. The "high, far 9" has a substantial gap.

Is it the comparison of the 1-9 gap being the same as the 2-9 gap, with both being wider than the 9-2 gap? On a regular one, the 2-9 gap is mush narrower than the 1-9 gap.

The gap is a much better marker. So not high. Darn. But back on JimmyD's "lines", I am pretty sure I have seen low 9s where the tail of the 9 is fully below the line.

Got this one in a box of cents this weekend. I would grade this piece at 62RB. Any idea on value?

According to Coins and Canada, for a certified MS62,
it has a value of $480.00 CDN.
That is book price so the actual value may be a little less.

Nice find though in a box of cents.

Looks like it has nice eye appeal... a good candidate to certify with PCGS and add to your George V 1c registry set. There are only 5 to date, certified with PCGS in mint state condition.
