    Realistic you say? Well, ok, fair enough. I'd actually be safe as I live in a James Bond type undersea lair, complete with shark tank and a coin safe. A trained chimp runs the controls.

    I will keep that in mind next time I see nuclear warheads raining from the heavens.

    I think that my guns and ammo, food stash, water stash and my tiolet paper cases would do me better than worrying about how to protect my shiny silver objects just saying !!

    My coins are not protected against nuclear attack. I suppose after the fallout settled, the vamps or zombies would get anything that may have remained intact.

    This film can give you some reasonable ideas of how to prepare to save your coins. Don't forget to bring some decident

    Don't worry. As luck would have it, zombies prefer plastic to cash. Your stash is safe. You on the other hand...

    Solved all that with getting prepared for worst case scenario during the Y2K scare. Seriously. That's part of how I came to acquire pm's. if you we're really asking a serious question, of course there are answers..but really, you'd have to have a lot more solved first, before you ever addressed this issue.

    Hope none of us ever actually need to face such a scenario.

    My coins would probably be irradiated along with everything else, so I wouldn't want them.

    Hopefully you are far enough from a blast radius that future beings would find your coins and think how much better pre 64 coins looked compared to post 64.

    I have lined my secret bomb shelter with thousands of Chinese Cash coins. Everyone knows they are great for fung she, but did you know they can repel radiation as well?

    I don't have to protect my coins, they have to protect me!

    I wonder if the people of Nagasky and Hiroshima were thinking about their coin collections when the bombs were being dropped.

    Probably not, but the folks living in Nagasaki may have been. We'll never really know.
  19. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunatley), I live in an area of the country that would likely be totally obliterated if there was a nuclear attack. TC

    There is no way to know, or to even know if they had coin collectors, or if coin collecting was popular or allowed in Imperial Japan. There is one thing that we do know, however. If there were any coin collectors in Hiroshima or Nagasaki, then they must have been very concerned about their collections, as all coin collectors are.

    I believe that gold and silver are protected naturally from that event.
