I know this will have to be "authenticated" as there have only been 4 confirmed but, I'm crossing my fingers and praying that it is indeed an original! Wish me luck!  Wink

Congrats! What an excellent find! I'd like to know more about the dots on some of the '36 pennies. Hope you don't have to wait too long to find out if you hit the jackpot. Sue

Let us know the story behind the dot. I'm curious why they put the dot on it in the first place. Was it a mistake?? etc.

[/quote]There was a pressing demand for 1c., 10c., and 25c. coins, but as the Royal Canadian Mint was waiting for new tools and matrices to arrive from the Royal Mint, the decision was made to strike coins dated 1936, but a dot would be added in the area near the date to indicate that the coins were struck in 1937. The 1c. and 10c. coins with the dot are excessively rare, so rare in fact that only four or five specimens are known. The 25c. coin is a very diffi coin to find

sale of the 1936 dot penny in 2003 was in new york,they were expecting a price of 250,000 but got 230,000.
