Remember What you have

Collecting Tips | user_16113

Every time I go to a pawn shop or coin show l always at least forget at least one coin l needed. So, I made a on the go coin kit that had a red book, magnifier, and my coin record’s to. Its helped me remember what coins l need and not come home with the wrong coin to.

Man, I wish I had learned that earlier... I cannot tell you how many times I brought back a coin for an album that was a duplicate. Thanks for sharing! -NM

It seems like everyone has basically the same ideas. I bring my list of what I'm looking for, But I need so much it's like carrying around a phone book. (Anybody remember phone books?) Now, I'm going to add a face mask to my bag. Good topic. Mr. B

Good ideas. I always have a list of what I need for my collections. An impulse purchase is always fun though! ; )

Great plan. Always need a plan. AS soon as one walks in the door of a coin show your brain can fall out. Have a plan and a budget and stick to the plan. Goodblog.

I mostly follow the Bama, LB approach. I constantly struggle with sticking with a plan, I'm a bad impulse guy. Nice blog!

I always go with a written plan on what I want to buy and figure out what I am going to be willing to pay for a coin, and write that down on the list. I don't go home disappointed and I'm happy because I stayed in my budget too!

A small note book with the coins remaining in each series I'm working on with an average market price. Until the cell phone came along I used a magnifier.

I always carry a pocket scale. And a list of coins I was looking for and there weight. They don't come close to the exact weight I'm gone. It's a simple way to protect yourself.

I have a backpack so I also carry a scale and a pair of calipers, just in case.
