If you get a Red Book and you want to get the free thing in the back of the book, be prepared to wait. A long time. Filling the card out is pretty simple, and postage is free if you send it in the U.S. When you send it, it takes like a month to arrive to it's destination if you live far-ish away. Then, It takes around 1 or 2 months for whatever you are trying to get to come back to you. It says "please allow 4 to 6 weeks for shipping" or something like that, but it takes way longer. So if you need the free thing in the back of the Red Book, get it online or somewhere faster, don't wait for it. P.S. I'm still waiting for the other thing to come back.

This will help you see scratches on the coin much easier, even on lustery coins. The light makes it appear like you get rid of the luster when you shine the light on the coin. Try this out if you have a flashlight!
