|Comment||Thanks, Dmitry, I had hopes that they were worth more than that, but oh well. They are in good condition, and, except for the two that were fashioned into ash trays with smaller coins as the cigarette holders, seem to have taken care not to destroy the original coin. I'll check with gold dealers as you suggest. Thanks again, Kathe|
Answers by Expert:
My specialty is world coins from the 18th to 20th centuries, primarily non-US foreign coins and related areas such as errors and exonumia (tokens, medals, etc.). I can answer questions relating to identification, grading, selling, preservation and evaluation of such items. In addition to catalog value, I can give you the practical market value and trends for specific types of coins. I will also take questions regarding counterfeits (both modern and antique) and on how to identify them. I am NOT knowledgeable in paper money/banknotes, ancient or "shipwreck" coins. Thank you.
