    PCGS Multi-coin holder, for errors

    Canadian nickel dollar offcenter error

    This one, a 1982 Constitution business strike nickel dollar, is currently at PCGS. I love the errors in such large coins like this! Enjoy!

    Something recently added to my collection. Shame that this wonderful error circulated (it is in a AU-55 holder), but I still love it nonetheless. Enjoy!

    Unusual Canadian 25-cent strike-through

    This one is odd. Very, very odd. This coin came from a freshly crack mint roll, acquired from a very reputable source, and this coin was in the middle of the roll. At first glance, I thought, 'oh,...
