  1. Hello, I just joined this forum because I need help. I bought an 1842 Seated Liberty dollar from ebay because it was being sold for $30. I don't know anything about coins, I bought it because it's worth more than that and because it's from 1842. But it arrived encased in sticky tape (as in, a wide piece of clear sticky tape was folded over it, completely covering the coin). That sucks! I took off the tape, it came off pretty easily, but quite a bit of the glue is still clearly stuck to the coin. I'm just wondering what to do as, reading about all the things that damage silver coins, I am sure this glue is very very bad. Is there anything in particular I should do about this? Is it possible to get the glue off without damaging the coin? Everyone seems to say not to clean old coins but I assume this glue will do more damage if it's left there? I plan to take it to a coin shop in the next few days, is there anything they can do, and more importantly, is there anything I should do in the mean time? I would really appreciate your help, thank you
  2. Right now, my entire collection is carefully placed in a drawer. Will this damage the coins somehow?
