I do plenty of raw coins!! It is really enjoyable to get a few top end museum quality Intercept Shield storage albums and fill them with the best of what you have. Once you get a nice set started move on to the next album and so on. Before you know it you will have a library of coins in full protection as long as the catalogs are stored in cool area!! :)


Have Fun!!! :)

Sort and see what you have. Buy you a book or do research online (I suggest the book. All the info is right at hand). You may find that you want to concentrate on a particular type of coin. If so you may want to entertain the idea of selling some of your collection to fund a particular set.

Take your time.

Focus on what you have.

Don't sell anything unless you feel comfortable that you know what it is.

Take your time...

Did I say take your time?
