Small cents, one cent test tokens, one cent on wrong planchets.......and most avidly.......encased coins with a Canadian aspect. Either a Canadian coin in the centre, a Canadian issuer, or a Canadian angle

Silver101, yes! The sheer variety is what gets to me, along with the history. Grading them is certainly no easy task either!

I've always enjoyed the design of the NFLD coins and am considering branching out in that direction myself.

I picked "silver" but it's really only George VI silver, plus to fill in a few dates, I've picked up some cents and nickels. I have birth year "sets" for QEII and a hodge-podge of a few other series. I think I have everything now for 1947ML and 1948, as that transition year always fascinated me. I picked up a 1947 SP 50c CR ML last year from that Cook guy as a 60th birthday present, but that might be my last George VI purchase. (The MS version of that is way out of my league). I've kinda lost interest in it, and have been doing Barber dime transition varieties for the past couple years.

I collect all coins and tokens that circulated in Canada in reasonable quantity, including early colonial times. This includes foreign coins (I.e. French, Spanish, British, American, etc).

I'm just a middleman but am interested in actually collecting and keeping silver commemoratives of cities and companies.

Hmmm - my suspicious that Newfoundland collectors are rare turns out to be accurate!

I should also mention that I collect NFLD 1c coins, including errors. My PCGS registry set will never match those of bosox or the Perth collection, but it is not bad... I am aiming for completion of a decent set, not the top set.

I collect Canada silver dollars (1935-1967), along with the RCM commemorative issues (1971-Present), and other decimal pieces for a type set I decided to try putting together.

Canadian decimal circulation strikes, 1902 to present.

May expand to Vicky coinage, but not yet.
