Just ran across a very beautiful 1929 Canadian penny. My oldest to-date was upper '40s, I think. Is this worth anything besides its copper value? I looked through the topic "Canadian coins" and didn't find anything relating to a coin this old. Thanks.

Unfortunately, 1929 is a common date for early Canadian cents. Depending on the condition, it probably wouldn't be worth more than a buck. Still - a very interesting find, especially if you are sorting in the US!

I found a '29 also just last week. It's in excellent condition. I had never seen a Canadian penny from that period of time and when it came out of the penny roll it was in I saw the reverse first and at first glance I thought it was a wheat.

Nice find. Not real common. I don't know about north of the border, but here in the States, I could agree they are as scarce as IH's.

I wonder what the BN and RD mean in the linked price list?
Perhaps "Brand New"? I wonder why there are not "MS-" grades? Not used in CN?

Probably "Brown" and "Red", I figure...

I've scored two old design Canadian Pennies and one 1942 Newfoundland penny (about a million made). I've looked at a lot of pennies, and I agree, a very rare find and way cooler then a supposed IHP.

Huxby Coins of Canada quotes a 1929 Cdn Penny in G-4 @ .25, VF-20 $2.00 and AU-50 at $10. So not worth a lot, and 12 million minted which was a large run for the period. I think after 80 years of service, it might be time to retire the old girl to your coin album.

I concur with Nickelmeister - Brown Uncirculated-60 and Red BU-63 is how my book lists the best pennies.

The 1929's found look just like my aviator (other then the date). Very cool looking coins.
