I'm posting for a friend but it's ok to e-mail me with any information you
have. He's looking for 1885, 5 cent and 10 cent Newfoundland coins to
purchase and he's looking for a decent 1871 H Canadian 50 cent coin.
Thanks for any help

The current auction (mail bids close Wed, auction starts Friday) lists
1871 50 cents in VG8 and F-15 lightly cleaned. Lots of Newfy stuff, but
no 1885 5 cents or 10 cents.
Auctions by Bowers & Merena also often list Canadian & Newfoundland coins.
Try them at (603)569-5095 or (800)458-4646. They also have a fixed price
list on the web.
Good luck, these are not inexpensive or easy to find coins!
Most things worth doing aren't easy.

Bowers and Merena is going to auction a spectacular
collection of Canadian coins in November. This collection was
put together by R. Henry Norweb. This auction will have just
about every one of the major Canadian rarities in uncirculated
or proof condtion. It may be the most complete collection of
Canadian coins ever assembled. John S.
