Hey all. New to this site but I thought i would put my first post here.I went thru my uncles coins that he left me and found these. Hope i can upload them. I would put the nickel at a vg8 i think. Do major scratches significantly devalue the coin? Obviously they would on a higher quality coin but im not sure exactly. The coin would for sure be at least a vg8 or even better without the scratches. Also have this gold coin. Would put it at a VF20? Thx for any help...                                      cheers

Very nice... i see you got the very rare 1953 5 No shoulder fold/Near maple leaf variety. It appears to be a VF-20 so it would be worth close to $1,000. The 1913 5$ gold coin is really neat, you don't see those all that often and yes it looks around VF-20 which makes it worth at $400. You uncle must often interesting stuff.

Thx for the reply JB. And thx for fixing my mess with trying to upload those pics...haha. Wow though..... 68 views and only one reply? I guess this is the paper money forum though..... I just received a box of coins and bills. $1 and $2 bills from 1954 and up. Nothing rare to speak of. No devils face or anything real interesting. Just a bunch of consecutive order notes crispy crisp. 1973 $1 and 1974 $2. I think its the 1974 $2. I dont have them in front of me.....Thx again for the reply
