    Starting to Organize

    Hey everyone,
    Still snowed/covid in and was admiring Tim Illdigger's coin storage trays. Picked up a couple and started in.
    These are my dateable Coronets, and most of my Barber/Seated silver. Thanks for looking!

    Thanks! I looked again and can see how you'd think they're Indians.

    I don't know why it's doing that!

    I'm still looking into it, but I did figure out how to approve all of the posts.

    Wow Drew, Your "sampler" looks like most peoples bucket list that they never even find half of those coins! Although I must admit a Susan B. Anthony dollar was NEVER on my list! LOL.

    That is a very nice display Drew. Not sure it would work for me though. I like to fondle my finds. That half penny ship token jumps out at me as a find that is especially worth fondling!
