Im new on the forum and would like to build up my reputation here with some small transactions. If anyone would like these coins before i put them on Feebay. There is a 1953 but i dont think it has the rare shoulder fold. Im not sure what theyre worth if anything above face. I also have 25 circulated but in good condition 1960s Elizabeth II "first portraits" that i can include that arent pictured if interested. 3 or 4 of them are 1967 centenials. Nice circulated condition just brown toned like the ones below.

    Welcome.

    The 1953 cent looks like the No Shoulder Fold or No Strap (please do not use the term "wrinkle"). Compare the shoulder area to the 1964 cents, the 1953 is lacking the two relatively parallel curved lines.

    As for value, the 11 coins pictured are worth about $0.25 total USD. Sorry, these are very common. Like US wheat cents, the value is in full bright red and scarce dates.

    You did didn't waste anyone's time! We're collectors and happy to see what's out there. You had nice photos and decent description which is better than most folks do. The coins aren't particularly valuable so probably won't sell but you're learning.

  • Thanks. If i find anything to sell that is worth more than a few bucks ill post it. I keep all my copper pennys and i live near Canada so i get a lot of them. They dont even make pennys anymore. I wonder if it worth keeping the non copper ones? or if i should just mix em in with my American cents and spend them lol! I just ordered a box of half dollars im gonna do my first ever coin hunt.

    For intro level coins like the ones you posted, I suggest you create an account at Numista.com

    You can create a "swap list" there and trade coins with other collectors. Good way to build a collection.

    @DanM55 - I get a lot of Canadian cents from dealers and travelers in my area at exchange rates. I accumulate them in large quantities, separate them by monarch, and sell them on eBay starting at face value plus postage. Most sell for more than face usually enough to cover my costs. For Liz II all prior to 1997 are bronze. Everything from 1997 to 2012 are plated, these I take to Canada when I visit and run them thru Coinstar.

    Try to find a recent copy (post 2011) of The Charlton Standard Catalogue Canadian Coins Volume One. It will list most of the dates to look for when roll hunting.

    Good luck and have fun.
