I’m going to start selling some coins to make a profit on ebay but i was wonderring, how do you all normally send/recieve your coins? Do you package them in some huge box full of packing peanuts or just an envelope and some bubble wrap? And what’s the safest company to ship through (UPS, fedEx, or just the mail)?
Hi, I don’t know if this has been discussed before if it has please forgive me. I was watching a show today about finding the bones of King Richard III. The show was REALLY interesting. Anyway, I went on the internet to see if I could find out anymore info they may have discovered. One thing lead to another, as it usually does on the web, and I wound up at the British Museum home page. There is some nice photos and a little info about coins there. This is a link to one of the pages: http://www.britishmuseum.org/explore…&retpage=22635
I though it might be interesting for the Ancient, Medieval, and who ever else might want to check it out
Okay, so I tried taking a picture of an 1840 2 pence piece. From what I understand, ALL 1840 2 pence pieces were struck as proof-like. The coin I own falls into that category (mirror-like fields), but when I take a picture of it, the coin looks dead. Short of making a light box (which I’m lazy to do at the moment), how do I get it to look more accurate while shot at 3 cm, or less, away?
So I have tried to attribute this 1883 Indian Head Cent. It does not appear to match up to any of Snow’s varieties in his attribution guide. It has a defective digit punch on the "3", but the three also appears to be repunched in the lower portion of the 3.
If you have an attribution guide, can you help me confirm what I am seeing here? Thanks!
