Vintage (60's I think) collecting stuff

Post by davetomalex » Sat May 25, 2019 2:37 pm

Found a large box of my grandfathers old collecting paraphernalia. A bunch of old albums, coin tubes, windows, plastic sleeves and mint set containers. Mostly Whitman. I think it's all from the 1960's. Anyone have any idea if this is worth anything to anyone?

Thanks!

The coins from the 60's (til '67" were .800 silver, and most would sell for about scrap silver price .. about $9+ US or $12+ Cdn for the dimes thru dollars. We would need to see some pics of the coins to give you a bter idea or a count of each date/denomination.

Should have clarified. Apologies. There's no coins. Unfortunately his whole collection was sold off many years ago. It's just the albums and other items which are all empty. Not sure if there was a market for the vintage albums among collectors.

Yes, there is. Put them on Ebay.ca. An idea of how many/what you have would give us an idea of worth.
