Never, never, never polish or wipe a coin with anything, especially a proof coin. It can leave hairlines on the coin which will diminish its value.
Unfortunately, it would probably cost you more to have these proof coins graded than it would be worth. You'd be better off putting them in Saflips or AirTites to protect them.
Non of them are worth grading
What about the 1981 Susan b Anthony?
Thank you .
Also, definitely avoid touching the coins as much as possible (hold by the rim not the obverse or reverse), and as previously mentioned, never wipe coins with anything.
Would someone buy them for there collection upgraded and tk you for your response
I mean not graded
I assume you mean ungraded. And yes, I'm sure you could find a buyer for them ungraded (just don't try to polish them with 100% cotton or anything else, OK?).
They would bring a higher price if they were graded, but it wouldn't be enough to offset the cost of grading, so you'll come out ahead selling them raw.
Here are a couple of pieces that did make the Cameo designation at NGC.
Do us all a favor. When you post your coins, crop them first to cut out as much background as possible. This will increase the size of the coin in the picture so we can see the detail, rather than the rug fiber count!
I take my picture with an iPad. Then, I go to "Photos" and click on the picture. Once you click on the picture a line item comes up asking if you want to edit the picture. If you click edit, it gives you several options, one being....crop. Select crop and move the lines with your thumb. once you have cropped out the background, select save.
Just because there's lint on the coins doesn't mean they've been polished with a cotton cloth. Coins that are not stored in good quality protective cases can naturally attract lint (laying them on that cotton towel doesn't help). Look at the mirrored surfaces under a magnifying glass. If they've been rubbed with a cloth, you should be able to detect some fine scratches.
We can't be of much help with regard to these other coins until you give us an idea of specifically what they are, hopefully with some photos included.
If you're using an iPhone, iPad or a Mac, you can crop your photos in about 10 seconds or less. (Don't ask me about non-Apple products — no clue.) Don't reduce the resolution, just crop out the background stuff to where the coin fills the image space.
Thank you. How do I take pictures of 250 penny errors in the 2x2's , do you take them out? And there are 250 of these coin error Penny's. I hope i am posting to you
