CANADIAN SILVER DOLLARS

Space Date Variants

The list of date space variants was given me through the courtesy of Jack Griffin and as previously stated, work of similar nature has engaged the attention of the Reverend Douglas Woodhouse. One thing is instantly apparent: the startling lack of variants in the first series dollars. We may conclude from this that better work was done by the Mint on the first dollars and not quite so good on the second. The list will do the average collector no good, it will give him a few ideas about variants of this type. Obviously, to do anything of this kind requires many coins for purposes of comparison.
