FEBRUARY 2000

PLANCHET VARIETIES

Curved Clip -20% at 5:00. *Estimated value -$20.00*

DIE VARIETIES

Feb #1 - Very extreme Die Deterioration on the Obverse. Beads are most affected at 5 o’clock. ELIZABETH II shows severe "fattening" due to Die Deterioration. The Reverse displays a small Die Crack that joins the front of the train to the "C" of the word CANADA. *Estimated value -$15.00*

Feb #2 - Large Die Chip "Jug shaped" -under the satellite dish on the Reverse. The Reverse displays a small Die Crack that joins the front of the train to the "C" of the word CANADA. This is similar to Feb #1, but clearly a different Die. This would suggest a reoccurring weakness inherent in the design of the Die. The Obverse shows extreme Pitting and Deterioration especially around REGINA. *Estimated value -$6.00*

Feb #3 - A two coin progression pair.

Feb #3A - Unusual "Haze" on the Obverse close to the rim, perhaps due to roughness in the Plating of the Die. Appears to be an early Die state. On the Reverse, a small circle due to a Plating flaw on the Die is forming above the base of the satellite dish. *Estimated value -$3.00*

Feb #3B - The "Haze" on the Obverse has now disappeared. On the Reverse , the small circle continues to deepen. In this stage it has become quite visible, the Reverse also has a small Die crack extending from the left side of the front part of the train. Two small Die Chips appear on the front of the train that look like "Headlights". *Estimated value -$4.00*

Feb #4 - Obverse appears to be a very late Die state. Extremely Pitted fields, the entire Obverse seems to appear a frosty white, due to the roughness of the Die. Lettering is beginning to fatten and misshapen due to Die Deterioration. - Chris Boyer *Estimated value -$4.00*

Feb #5 - The Reverse shows an unusual raised area on the left side of the front part of the train. *Estimated value -$4.00*

STRIKE VARIETIES

Feb #3C - Same as Feb #3B, but also shows a Filled Die Strike centering at 3 o’clock, some Beads are faint and others are missing. Just the Reverse, 2 examples in varying degrees. Another coin that is similar but the filling is centering at 7 o’clock on the Reverse and 4 o’clock on the Obverse. Large areas affected, quite unusual. *Estimated value -$5.00*

25 Cents struck on a planchet intended for a 10 cents coin. *Estimated value -$200.00*
