Featured Greysheet Pricing for September: Canadian Small Cents

Canadian Small Cents are tremendously popular among North American collectors due in part to their underrated values.

This month’s featured pricing focuses on Canadian Small Cents. The reduced-size copper denomination commenced in the transition year of 1920, in which both Large Size and Small Size cents were struck. The early dates of the type, including 1921, 1922, and 1923 are better dates, with fully original Mint State examples scarce. Of course the most famous Canadian Small Cent is the 1936 “Dot” variety. The year 1936 was to be the final year of the King George V coinage and 1937 was intended to introduce the coinage of King Edward VIII. Due to the latter’s abdication a coin shortage occurred, so 1936-dated minor coinage were struck in 1937. These 1937 struck coins were identified by a very small dot on the reverse die. Only three examples of the Dot variety cent are known. Remarkably, all three examples were once owned simultaneously by famed collector John Jay Pittman.
