Coins | user_51818

These are just a few of my favourite coins to collect. I will post many more soon. I will be taking the two year course and I will become an expert grader and numismatist within 7 years. All thanks to my brother who gave me a small box of coins several years ago. I only thought of making profit at first but soon, as I started researching, something in my mind just clicked and I knew. I knew that I must have more pieces and that my future would in some way revolve around numismatics. I have been given the opportunity of a lifetime. My sister has invited me to inspect, catalogue, grade and liquidate a three generation coin collection that consists of 25,000++ pieces. This is my first post on this platform and I hope that I will meet some interesting knowledgeable people here. These photos are not very clear, so if interested the peace dollar is a 1928 and the half cent is 1835, not for sale,,,,yet, if ever, as these are from my own personal collection. I will post a few exceptional Morgan dollars soon.

I neglected to mention a better way of storing them. I use 2x2 paper holders that you staple shut. You have to be extremely careful with those if you take them back out because you could scratch the coin with the staple. I'm told that they make self adhesive 2x2's but I've never seen them offered for sale

I just learned this. Polyvinyl chloride is the culprit. Over time it will leave goo on your coins. The copper coins also turn green because of it.

I will make a suggestion. Protect those coins especially the xopper. Get rid of the old plastic. The environment will get to them. Enjoy them.

Awesone collection of coins. Becoming a grading expert is a great goal. Always something to learn and study, which keeps you endlessly busy if you want to be. Welcome to this friendly ANA area of numusmatics. Were always happy to see and learn about new things, so keep us posted on your progress.

Well you are on the right track.... I've found this to be such a rewarding hobby over most of my life from the time I was about 8. You have excellent goals. I am also taking the diploma course and just started the course on grading coins. I wrote a blog on grading yesterday, so maybe we can help each other throughout the program. Mike

Wow, looks like you have quite the peace dollar collection!

You sound like a person that is headed down the absolute perfect path to Numismatic success and bliss. I love all your favorite coins, my U.S. favorites are my Bust Dollar, my Seated Dollar, all my Peace Dollars, and my Mercury Dimes. You may have inspired a future blog. (:

Wonderful, welcome aboard! I wish you well in your quest to become a numismatist and a good grader. I look forward to your posts along the way. I've been collecting for 40+ years and as Mike stated the learning continues.

I have been collecting 26 years and I'm still learning. Grading is probably the hardest thing to learn. The author of the Red Book was asked how do you become a great grader. He replied a loop good lighting and 20 years experience!!! Welcome and enjoy.
