Re: how to remove glue from coin

Glues are diverse, and so are their solvents.
My first go to is acetone.
Then water, rubbing alcohol (polypropylene), and finally an oil base like WD-40.

Re: SSDC price guide.

I've worked on price guides on every thing from autos to firearms.
It is laborious, and the rewards are meager.
Personal satisfaction is the best one might hope for.
But I thank you.
And Logan, the Pioneer.

Re: New LVA VAM 1FL

Congratulations. I sometimes think that VAMing is a bit like assembling a jig-saw puzzle. Each piece enhances the overall picture.

Re: 1898-OV23 oddity

With similar striations on the wreath etc., my guess would be a problem with the planchet.

For 5 years I have tried to get ebay to list Canadian coins in the North American category.

I'll just guess things are working properly.
Immediately after sending an email, I would check the sent box and the message didn't appear.

Thanks all, I learn something new every day.

If it helps with the diagnosis, I haven't been able to log in from this page ( for a long time.)
I have to go to a specific discussion and log in to leave a reply.

Re: 1904-O Series Question

It has been some time since I've seen one with a dramatic rotation, and now wish I had bid higher on it. I haven't seen a lot of them and I don't recall the VAM. Now I'll be paying more attention.

Re: this makes me want to cry

I need a little help understanding how this happens. Long ago I was cautioned not to scratch coins with staples, and my concern was with 2x2s that hadn't had the staple flattened. This appears to be different. I developed protocols for stapling and removing, and none of them would involve this. How ...

Re: can this be saved (PVC)?

If the acetone treatments don't remove all of the green, I would consider Verdi-Care from Wizard. I bought a trial size 6 years ago, and still half of it. A little goes a long way. As always, test first on coins of low value. I have tried my hand a coin conservation, but only on junk coins. This Swe...
