Storage of irregular shaped coins i.e. Hammered

Post by jingernut » Wed Mar 16, 2016 3:16 pm

Been looking for a way to store my hammered coins while still being able to view them, and also have the details about it visible.

Like the look of the everslab coin capsules, but wondered if people have used these for hammered's considering they are not always totally circular.

And what do you do with really small coins i.e. pennies that are 13mm or less?

Thanks,



Tomo

Hi mate,
I currently store mine in the cardboard coin holders that are self adhering. Very cheap and you can see both sides. You can also buy cases which house them up to 100.
That said, I've just ordered an aluminium case from a well known auction site because I really miss holding the coins (sounds weird, I know :-O )
