And I'll tell you, there is very little chance any of those will grade 68.
So what ur saying is buy my own sleeve and just put up in dry safe place... ✌️
They cost MORE than $25 to get certified ....
it will become an indecipherable gob of goo in a few years.
It's really difficult to find a 68 or 69 with any coins that have had contact with
While we are on toning then wth happened to my 2009 pennies they have never been opened from mint and have been in a fire proof safe since purchase have all 18 coins this is only place and ones changed
Oh like I said I just wanted to know how to keep them shiny I didn't expect value just my own enjoyment of pretty shiny things giggle
Put them in rolls paper or a plastic tube which ever you want. Stash them away.
It's good to keep them in your safe but again, the environment inside the safe is important. Best to use some type of silica, packets or cannisters are good for this to keep the moisture in a safe zone. Think about what happens each time you open your freezer or fridge, you let outside air inside. The same happens with your safe. I had accumulated many rolls of cents since 1982 when zinc was introduced. I kept them all in a warm room but forgot about the possible moisture they would come into contact with and when I finally got to them to search many years later, many were ruined. This did not happen with my rolls of pre-82 cents. Copper plated zinc cents will always be a problem coin to be reckoned with for ages to come.
They are in the plastic cases they came in from the mint and it is only on the reverse of those pennies. Yeah I do use the silica packets I have them in any area I keep my coins now. Someone from coin talk told me that back in April shortly after I went on hospice and started getting serious with it thank you though. The fact they are sealed in those hard plastic holders I thought they were air tight. Its part of the 2009 18 coin set straight from mint.
This is a job for someone who loves the work more than someone who wants to make money.
You can just set nice coins aside every year for a while to get started and see where it goes from there. Getting coins to market early is where some of the money is made but finding the best coins is where most is made. It's tough work.
@RLGluvcoins The slabs, I believe, are sonically sealed but all plastic is permeable.
Slabs will certainly protect them from wear and damage, but they are not perfectly airtight, and then can, and will, eventually react to the air.
