I did a bunch of upgrades in my Canadian large cents last year. I started this collection as a kid and needless to say was more interested filling holes by getting the most coins for cheap.



My dad collected just from his change back in the day. I don't think he ever spent over face value on a coin. there are a number of dates I have upgraded over the years since he gave me his collection.

sometimes the effort to look for upgrades result in a nice surprise, like the discovery of a die variant

1608 Dugn.3632, vLoonII.39, Tas400 - Rekenpenning 'Schotschriften tegen de wapenstilstand' (see http://goccf.com/t/336420&whichpage=3#2884341)

the new piece last shown below seems an upgrade, but now it turns out that #1 is a very uncommon die variant

Wonderful upgrades! I remember feeling lucky to own the original coins, and then also relieved to finally make the upgrade!
