Another coin freshly certified by PCGS for your grading fun. Due to the trueview technique used on this one there isn't ant evidence of the coin's heavy cameo sadly...there's a tiny spot under the chin which isn't that noticeable in hand..it is merely a small plating flaw and I'm happy to take such a tiny flaw over rusted out edges as these coins are almost always found with..


feel free to call me Will. I'm a 19 year old collector from the GTA area of Ontario.

my PMs are always open, whether you have a question or simply wish to talk.

I'd say that spot makes it MS65 but they probably got it at 66

Due to the flat/weak spot on the king's eyebrow, it looks like a specimen.

I'll say SP65

I have always found that the PCGS TruView pictures look nothing like a 'true view'.

Trying to grade a coin solely from viewing these pictures is a long shot at best.

@coinfrom 1944-1954 Canadian 5 cent coins are made with planchets with a chrome plating..there is a small plating issue under the chin.. exaggerated by the PCGS image. Not an uncommon thing to find flaws like this on them..this piece is quite rare actually as it has no rusted out edges..
