CANADA 1947 SILVER HALF DOLLAR / 50 CENTS PCGS MS 64 STRAIGHT 7 MAPLE LF #T4202. PCGS Authenticated and Graded PICTURES ARE OF THE ACTUAL COIN YOU WILL GET. CANADA 1947 SILVER HALF DOLLAR / 50 CENTS PCGS MS 64 King George VI STRAIGHT 7, MAPLE LEAF. Why the blazes are my coins encased in plastic?

For my beloved Canadian customers, I use the price guide from the CCN, which I feel is the best gauge of the Canadian Numismatic market. What are you doing reading this?
If you want to give me a tip, that is ok too! Been dealing in coins, comics, stamps, antiques, and anything else I can hoard or sell since I was filling my diaper.Get Supersized Images & Free Image Hosting. Create your brand with Auctiva's.
