I am getting this coin certified I will post the results for those who are curious.
There is only one certifier in Canada who handles errors, and that is CCCS. It will cost you about $20 for a single coin submission (plus shipping).
NGC and PCGS in the US do certify errors, and with the CAN-US currency exchange, and shipping costs, it will cost you $75 (approximately) for a single coin submission.
Or, you could listen to the experts here, me being one of them (I collect Canadian small cent errors):
- your coin was not struck on a split planchet http://goccf.com/t/330437
- your coin was not struck through another coin (note the rim on the blank side)http://goccf.com/t/271556
You need to learn about the minting process, before you can make such bold assumptions. Even blank planchets, have raised rims.http://goccf.com/t/194021
You have a full rim on one side, and no rim on the other, therefore it was NOT struck on a Type 1 blank.
You have a normal coin whereby someone filed or ground down the reverse. I could make that same "error" in about 10 minutes in my garage. It is junk, it is worth nothing more than a conversation piece...
Transition strikes do occur, but are uncommon:http://goccf.com/t/285686
to CCF - there are a ton of threads here on errors, so take advantage of the CCF search engine and open your mind - when it comes to errors, we are all always learning...
