You can do some pretty quick google searches on your own also, FYI.
"year country coin type ngc" usually works pretty well...
By this, he means fill in the blanks with your keywords.
1918 (year) Canada (country) cent (coin denomination) NGC (to give you the NGC priceguide results).
So Google "1918 Canada cent NGC", and this page comes up as the first hit in the search results:
Boom, that's the priceguide page you want.
It's not always perfect. Sometimes you don't get the right hit at the top of the list like that. It takes some searching.
You can also try replacing the "NGC" keyword with "Numista", to get the Numista page for a coin.
So let's try "1918 Canada cent Numista".
Boom, there you go. First result is:
Numista is sometimes helpful with a little more background information and general description than the NGC priceguide is.
Obviously you have to check carefully to make sure that the page you land on is describing your exact coin rather than something that is merely similar.
But this method will get you most of the way there, most of the time.
