Re: Cashing in old bills

Ya some times it’s not worth the effort but still maybe you would be starting a new collector if you found a youngster that would buy them from you at face to start a collection. If all you get is face at the bank anyway.
Happy New Year to you and everyone out there that’s part of the collecting clan.

Re: Cashing in old bills

Re: Regina 60 Years

Thats it coinguy thanks again, and with a rarity index of 93 it sounds like its not that common, dont see anything there about value but dont have much time to look right now, thats a great starting point for me to do more investigating.

Re: 1955 One Dollar Coin

I was a little unsure of a long soak in the acetone but did try it on one coin . It did a not bad job of rem...

Re: 1955 One Dollar Coin

Re: 1955 One Dollar Coin

Still no one wants to have any input on this?? Coinguy indicated that it was only worth the silver value , so that would indicate that you can’t devalue it by cleaning it.

Re: specific cleaning of the devices?

Point taken. I sure don’t think of myself as any kind of a expert, and anyone that’s in to coin collecting should gather as much info as they can, from as meany sources as they can and then draw there own conclusions .
