This Newfoundland Five Cents Silver is guaranteed genuine and as described above. Grading standards are consistent with standard grading practices in the numismatic community. (See Charlton catalogue for details.) I also feel my prices are fair to everyone, so I do not accept lower offers. (For pricing, I've consulted the Trends in Canadian Coin News.)
(See details of grading description below.) Defects: none, other than what is normal for the stated condition and/or clearly shows in photos. Satisfaction guaranteed or your money back. I've been selling coins & supplies since 1965, so
bid with confidence!
Please don't bid if you won't buy. Buyer to pay $2.00 shipping/handling (more for foreign deliveries) but will save 50% on second and following items "won" and which are shipped together. Shipments to countries other than the United States which total more than $50.00 will require shipment by insured, registered mail, even though eBay's checkout system may not include it. (I'll send another invoice or e-mail.)
I gladly accept PAYPAL so you can use your VISA & MASTERCARD, bank account, etc., through Paypal. Check out my other auctions for more coins!
California residents must pay sales tax.
If paying with Paypal, please combine all auctions won, making one payment. Also, remember that the second and following coins only cost $1.00 each for shipping.
Abbreviations used above refer to the American Numismatic Association (ANA) Grading System as follows: (These descriptions are very brief; for detailed description, see the ANA Grading Book.)
BU = Brilliant Uncirculated – “New,” has never been in circulation but may have bag marks. AU = Almost Uncirculated – Small amount of wear on the highest points. Usually a highly lustrous coin. (AU+ = so close to “new” that you will need a high-powered magnifier to see any wear.) XF = Extremely Fine – Very light wear on the high points VF = Very Fine – More wear than XF. Some flat spots on high points. F = Fine – Moderate to heavy wear. VG = Very Good – Most details in hair are worn smooth. Rims are complete. G = Good – Well Worn with very little detail remaining. AG - About Good - Clear enough to identify, wear extends into lettering
I use “split” grades to describe an “in between” coin. For example “VF-XF” means that the coin is better than Very Fine and may have some of the characteristics of Extremely Fine, but it isn’t quite good enough to grade it XF.
Use Ebay's Check Out system if you wish, or I'll send an invoice.
Ten percent of the net proceeds will be donated to Chosen Children of Promise to assist orphaned and destitute children in Nairobi Kenya. My wife & I helped found this organization when we lived in Nairobi, 2003-2005. Contact me for more information. Thank you.
Because I usually list several hundred coins per month, I occasionally make a mistake in the listing, usually by loading up the wrong photo for the listed coin. If you notice a photo that obviously doesn’t match the listing description, please bring this to my attention before bidding so I can correct the photo promptly. In the event a listing ends with a discrepancy between the photo and the listing description, the description will be what I’ll go by to make the delivery. Questions? Please ask me for clarification as needed.
