Please Read Before Posting A Topic

In the title please put date, denomination and type of coin design and a brief on what you are asking about.
In example: "1995 Lincoln Cent Missing 5" or "2010 Roosevelt Dime With a Line inside the rim".

All of this helps discern the different topics from each other and is much less confusing to members who want to help.
Topic titles like "how did this happen" or "help" often get ignored and lost in the confusion.

Looking forward to learning here

#1 Unread post by Likezeippo »

I've been watching Daniel's videos for a couple of years since I inherited some coins that I wanted to learn more about. I've always liked to search through change and pull out old coins but never did anything serious with it. It always seemed far too complicated when it came to grading the coins. I'm going to be posting some pics of coins that possibly should be graded - I'm not sure. I've looked at the PCGS photograde (or whatever its called) to see what I have but it is tough to determine. I check ebay sold listings for values and examples of grades as well - per Daniels suggestion from one of my youtube comments. Thank you all in advance for any assistance. I've read through the rules and guidelines so hopefully I don't mess up. I recently made my first actual old coin purchase. Probably made a mistake buying a Morgan at an online auction. Paid a little too much but all the coins were going for more than I thought they would/should. Live and learn.
