I tell you what, if that pic doesn't make you sit up straight, try to scan what is in there, and make you wish you could run your fingers through it yourself, I simply don't think you are a coin collector.
I don't care what you collect, a big old group of silver like that is PRETTY.
The Freudian/Rorschach in me morphed the sentence into, "...a big old group of silver like that is LIBERTY."
I feel no harm in touching my old circulated Barbers and Seated Liberties, but I do it sparingly.
I hear ya Pumpkin
maybe grandpa can come in and tell us if he is a feeler. he was quite the ladies man in his hey day several years ago. are you listening grandpa
well there was this coin molester sitting in an anacs booth a few years ago. i am telling you man those guys need to be locked up
Touchy, touchy feeling. I personally handle them to put into Danscos. I also handle them to put them in 2x2's to go into my binder pages. And I "touch" them as well. However, the ones I do touch are coins I throw in boxes and bags with time as I go along buying and find nothing special on them. I have a thing for holding real silver and older coins in my hand.
I have several liberty seated dimes in AU condition...and if I caught someone feeling them, i'd castrate them lol
Ha! May I recommend the spey blade: http://www.casexx.com/DisplayDetailPage.asp?ProductCode=80161
That's what I'd prefer to feel in my pocket...speaking of which, I don't put change in the same pocket, since I don't want those harmful coins to scratch up my knife :hail:
My personal preference for "pocket" weapons is my trusty Swiss Army Knife. Stainless steel
and the original, Victorinox of Switzerland. However I do beleive a German firm, Wenger, also
makes pocket knives for the Swiss Army. I would be lost without my toothpick and trusty
I was thinking more of a power saw....but those would work nicely too
I think coins can be handled with bare hands(carefully) but am reticent to handle mint state coins I love the feel of a one ounce silver maple leaf in hand it's almost as good as good as well
..... you know
Eh, if its not going to hurt it, I love to hold them. I used to carry a worn out 1838 Large Cent in my pocket along with a dateless Standing Liberty. That's been years ago though, cause then the Standing Liberty disappeared, the 1838 went in the SDB.
