92   Canadian Coins / Deep Red Patina on Cnd Pennies?

Hi,
Wondering it anyone can tell me if the super deep red patina on some older Canadian pennies is "significant"?  A friend gave me a bag of about 1000 and I have found about 10 of these.
Thanx, CB

As I am still trying to understand if the digit "1" is or isn't allowed in rotators ... I noticed that the $500 dollar note S/N A00100 is described by the auctioneer as being a rotator, yet the PMG Certification doesn't call it one.  Wouldn't the PMG service designate it as a rotator if they thought it was one?  Or is this not something they would indicate?  Also doesn't say it's a radar?  I thought I have seen these determinations on PMG Certifications before -- or am I totally mistaken??  This is a repost of the link to the subject note for anyone who has not seen it:

At this level, the grade is the only important factor.  The serial number is intriguing but won't affect the price in the least.  What caused the price to be low is that no less than five of these have traded in the past 3-4 years, with several still "available" at this very moment to anyone willing to pay the price, most of those being in higher grades.

We are also in the middle of a major economic crisis which will affect the price of all commodities.  Prices, especially of high-end material will take a beating, at least in the short term until the current uncertainties get sorted out.

-interesting: I have not been keeping track of the number of $500 that have been offered (nor available).  Yes, it appears that high-end collector material will be attained at much lower prices until global affairs, climate change, etc, get better sorted out.  At this point, I would expect less high end stuff to be offered on the block.

The price was low for sure but whoever is buying this at this price level is certainly not paying 15% tax and is most certainly not paying by credit card.  I don't think there is any reason to think that the price would have been higher in a Canadian auction.  I think the opposite.  This note screams with international appeal.

I also thought the price was low considering how scare the $500 note is. I wonder if it would've brought more at a Canadian auction house. Agreed it was rather complicated to figure out the sold price but after creating an account and playing around I figured it out. Will be interesting to see what prices are like at the Geoffrey Bell auction this weekend.
-yes, a bit low, if you asked me (why I wrote "fair" meaning a good deal for the collector).  You may be right: CDN collectors might be turned off with the S&B auction, the customs clearance (extortion at the border) & calculating the exchange rate.

However, should a trophy note like that appear here, you've got 13-15% tax. In fact, I was looking at the taxes, 20% B.P. + CC/payment fees for Sept 30th (tomorrow's) auction & it seems pretty prohibitive (at least in my books).

It made me wonder who shows up to pick up & to pay in cash?

Good Morning CPMF,

Here is another "first day cover" type note.  This $20 bank note was issued 18 years ago today.  (I only have one more to go.)
