probably my best one is a lot of 7-8 victorian 5 cents I bought for around 130$ cad (really bad scan photos), I sold the lower grades/cleaned ones for around 150$.

Also a 1893 5 cents I bought 15$ us (sold as a vf ) who was a beautifull Au-50.

My 2 best deals financially were:

1. 1872H Canada 50c A over V NGC AU55 - bought for Ebay for $900 (seller didn't attribute it as A/V, sold for $11,000.




2. 1906 Canada 25c Small Crown F12 - bought on Ebay in junk silver for $800, not sold, now resides in PCGS F12 SLAB (valued at ~$12,000).







When I bought the 1906 25c Small Crown in junk silver I kept thinking about Sid Belzberg's discovery of the 1906 25c Small Crown in MS62. It inspired me, thank you Mr.Belzberg.

@canadian-varieties, was the 1906 purchase about 4-5 years ago? 8f yes, I think I was bidding on that lot, but chickened out around $400. Nice work, fortune favors the bold.

Thanks purelywasted....yes, it was about 4-5 years ago now and must have been that lot. In all honesty, I was nervous the entire time until I had the coin in hand.
Fortunately it worked out for me but these kinds of situations dont always work out.

I have not cherry picked a 1906 25c Small Crown since.

Here it is in PCGS slab. The Belzberg MS62 cherry pick is the PCGS finest, my PCGS F12 is 5th finest. The VG10 on PCGS website (6th finest) was mine as well but I paid full price for that one before my upgrade to the F12.
These are so unbelievably rare above VG8.

well my first 3 best finds on ebay are these 1864 nb e/f's paid $6 for one and $7 for the other kept the best for myself and sold the other for $1100

these next 2 are 1882 triple die I paid $20 for
and this 1882 DDO I think I paid $9
, dont really kow the value as I have not sold them although I think I might have the finest known DDO.
and the next item isn't coin related but since we are on this subject went to a garage sale last week and bought a box of stamps for $20 thinking there might be a couple hundred in usable postage, wasnt till I got home and discovered a bunch of file folders at the bottom of the box full of mint sheets blocks booklets and souviner sheets, been adding it up all week and I am now at $7000.86 face value , plus alot of mint czech stamps.
i can sell canadian stamps for 75% face on ebay also the souviner sheets generally go for more than face, I still need to check for any varieties I estimate close to $10 000 by the time I'm done and this is my best find ever!

Too many to mention and who'd believe me anyway? 1893 Round Top ten cents for ten dollars. 1947 curved right maple leaf fifty cents for less than $50. 1884 C-1 large cent AU for twenty dollars. And more, lots more. The secret? Buy It Now. New listings...
