I managed to make 3 AMAZING FINDS all this month:

1) Found a 2005P Non-magnetic Penny in a 2005 Oh Canada set.
I got it graded by ICCS and it graded MS-67. From what I am told, there are less than 10 graded as MS-67 by ICCS and MS-67 is the best grade given by ICCS so far. Any offers? :D It will likely go for thousands.

2) Found 3 tubes of the Uncut Stamp Fabric Flag Sheet tubes at CP.
If anyone is interested,
Sealed Tubes $210
Opened Tubes $200

3) At the same post office as #2, I found the ultra rare First Day Covers of the Unesco Stamp Errors. While the stamp booklets and souvenir sheets have been fairly common on eBay, these FDCs have been fairly rarer.
I am selling for $330 on eBay @ http://www.ebay.ca/itm/281790887493
If purchased off eBay and picked up in Markham, it can be yours for $300.
Congrats! Sounds like you had the day of your life. Enjoy it because most likely you won't have another one like this... lol

Just an FYI regarding stock levels in comparison to 2 days ago:
CA are down to 1 from 28
Gwako (aka "TheCoinShoppe") - 7 vs. 31
CDN - 85 vs. 125
GW - only they know...

I think Ghost Bride ( #1 ) will outperform Brakeman ( #2 ) and rest of the haunted coins in future.

Going to hold mine ( Ghost Bride )

Doesn't look like J&M has it listed yet, or maybe I can't find it on their stupid site.

Therefore, I decided not to buy Brakeman.

Why bother ordering #2 when a person already owns #1

lol.

The first dino had a mintage of 25k. Prices were as high as USD100 at one stage. Now, I think it's more like USD60.
The second dino had an increased mintage of 30k - higher mintage, zero novelty compared to dino 1 and fugly... Well, we all know the rest.

The two Haunted Canada coins have a 15k mintage, with only 5k (presumably) being made available in clamshells with coa. Of course, #2 will NEVER cost as much as #1, but I think it has a much better chance of appreciation compared to dino #2 - 5 vs. 30k mintage for example...
The only problem I see is that it's an annual series and that interest wanes after a few months. Come next year we've forgotten about this one. And, with the RCM you never know if they just decide to cancel the series and be done after two coins. Doubt it, but there have been numerous examples of series being cut short.

Mansun is focusing on Aphrodite Silver Coin now, which he bets heavily on.

He has no time on Dino 2 & Dino 3

But if Mansun is interested on Dino 2 & 3, please come to me, because I still have 30 pcs each.

lol.
