Never buy a coin off tv, or an add in a paper, etc. Research every purchase you make. If you think it is too good to be true, it is. There is no such thing as "unsearched" coin rolls, 100% scam. Coins are a hobby not an investment, if you want to buy gold bullion buy the stocks not the physical coins. 70% of high end raw coins are not in a slab because they were details graded. (I only buy PCGS and NGC coins.) Take a grading course from PCGS or NGC, well worth your time. Read some books and research before you really get into buying. There are a lot of scams and fake coins on the internet. If you dont know how to identify a cleaned coin, do some research. If you really plan on collecting and finishing a date set of cents, nickels, dimes, dollars whatever collect the hard ones first because in 10 years when you go to finish your set you wont be able to afford them as they will be more expensive to get, you can fill in the easy ones as you go.
