I have inherited a large amount of old coins(my guess is in excess of 2000
coins). They have sat in my closet for over five years, because I never
have time to actually go through each and every coin. However, the dimes
are my biggest concern. I have a total of 80+, that are Mercury dimes,
mostly 1940-1945. They are in very good to excellent condition. Some have
alot of luster on them, while others have lost their luster, but have very
little wear on them. Needless to say, I don't think I could afford to have
them graded, since there are so many of them. I also have many that are
worn, from earlier years. I don't know that much about the coins, to
actually "do" anything with them, so I put them back in the closet for a few
more years. Yet, when I see on ebay that some of these coins are actually
worth something, (maybe not much, but more than a dime!!), I wonder WHAT I
should do. In addition to the dimes, I have several hundred wheats, and a
few hundred nickels, among many others. Any suggestions on what to do with
so many coins?!
Thanks for your time!!
