A decent looking VF 30, possibly EF, check the scratches on the 50 a bit closer

Based on just the crown, shoulder and robe, I'd say VF-20 ... however the leaves and leaf tips don't show much wear, so it's VF-30 or a little more. Maybe the Obv was weakly struck or just the luster is rubbed off and looks like wear.

VF details reverse cleaned issues around the 50.
Would not straight grade in MO.
BTW .....no such thing as a Half Dollar in Canada.
They are officially fifty cents .

1) here are some attempts at a better obverse
2) weight seems either 12.7 or 12.8 g (2 tries)

VF-30 details, but I'm really not confident it's genuine or not.

I think I do agree with you for the same reason.

I'm no expert. Far from it. In a quick comparison with an image from coinsandcanada the date appears to be left of centre from where it should be.
