I have been doing lots of research, I do have books, apps for info and pricing, etcetera. I have pages on pages of notes on key dates, pricing, and what to look for. So personal sorting tips, what to look for, how to organize, or even just how should I or how would you approach this situation would be most appreciated! As far as I can tell my father who I got these coins from was pulling old pennies and removing anything 83+. So I guess he was stacking bronze and removing zinc. I think I want to take it a step further and hunt for errors as well. Me being new to coins and considering there are lots of different things to look out for when sorting the coins,my plan is to sort all the coins mostly by year. 70 - 82 get their own rolls by year, 60's are all mixed in rolls because I find less of them and eventually will go back though the 60's when I have a box of them and sort by individual year. I'm pulling out corroded coins to help hopefully stop the spread to other coins in the rolls, not sure if this is a correction assumption. 50's, 40's, and 30's are being sorted by decade as I'm not finding a lot of these as well. I'm also pulling any of the higher quality looking coins for coin collecting album's or possible grading. Also there are the rolled nickels. Do I open them all and sort by date, reroll them, and stack copper? Pull silver and low mintage dates then exchange the common ones back to the bank? Check the ends to see if I have any mint 2009 rolls and don't open them? I really appreciate all the constructive comments and personal opinions on what to do! Any sorting and storage tips would be great as well. Currently I use a piece of paper that has 70 - 83 written on it and as I go through the coins I stack them on the correct date. Once the stacks are getting big then I transfer to plastic tubes with the date on it. Once a tube gets full I put them in labeled paper rolls. I bought smaller shipping boxes and as I get multiple rolls for each year they will all get their own box. In the end I'll have boxes of each year, rolled, and then if I want to look through a certain coin and year I know exactly what to look through and what to look for.
