    Mygirl,

    Congrats on the find! There are two Varieties for the 1867-1967 Commemorative Canadian Ten Cent coins. For the first half of the year, they were struck in 80% Silver and 20% percent Copper, then during the second half of the year, they were struck in 50% Silver and 50% Copper due to the higher prices of Silver during that time period. There is no real or easy way to tell the difference as the planchets used for both, weighed the same.

    Like huntsman53 mentioned, the 67ís were either 50 or 80% silver. No way to know really, so they are sold as if they are 65%. Being dirty like 40% halves, I think I received about a buck a piece for them, and even less for the 68ís

    Always check rabbit holes when metal detecting... you never know, there might be karats down there.
