Well, I got through the winter by amusing myself with 3 kilos of foreign coins (about 600) and have them all holdered, identified, etc. Now my son gave me a mug of coins from his time in the Navy aboard the USS America and my daughter just gave me 25 or so from Costa Rica. I have about 60 different countries with Canada (80), Mexico (60), Great Britain (60), Germany (40) and France (40) having the most and a few countries with just 1 example. My plan ahead guy was obviously out to lunch when these buys were made, so now I'm looking for some input from you foreign coin collectors as to how to proceed. Representing Germany there are 15 ten pfennig coins with all the various mints locations. I don't think I want to keep all 15 coins. Same could be said for several other countries. So, I got through winter and learned quite a bit and didn't spend much in the process. All suggestions, other than psychiatric care, are welcomed as to how I might proceed.
