HELP Identifying Coins, etc.

Hello All,

 

I'm a new member of the group. A friend of my grandmother's has collected coins for many years, and has decided that she would like to sell them. I told her I would do so for her. I'm trying to figure out what the coins are worth...would anyone here be able to help me? I'd like to keep this discussion right out in the open, on the threads, to make sure that I am not contact by a single individual that might not have my grandmother's friend's best interest at heart. I've done research on eBay using completed sales and have found some information out that way. I've also googled what I have in my posession, but there are so many variances on any given coin, that I'm kind of unsure as to determine the actual worth. Would anyone be able to offer any help here? I could take pictures of what I have and post them...or however you may go about it. I apologize in advance if this kind of thing isn't welcome here. I would appreciate all the help you may offer.

 

Thanks!

The best solution is to show the coins at some reputable dealers from your area. They can evaluate pretty well... or you can simply put the coins on ebay. Quality coins will be hunted by collectioners and the prices will be fair. What we can do for you if your grandmother's collection contains several hundreds of different coins??? Hmmmm...

A lot of the coins you should be able to clip thru fairly fast. First get a red book. This will give you at least an idea. Get some cups. Separate by denomination, then year group. (I.E.) maybe every ten years. I long distance helped a friend of mine this way. At first he thought it would take for ever, but with a little bit of of work each nite he made it thru okay. (A little over 800 coins.)
