Time for Fall Cleaning: Selling Advice Needed

Well, after looking through the Russian Imperial collection, I have found 89 duplicate coins that I really have no use for. I see that Ebay has a special where there is no insertion fees from now through January. That seems tempting, but the 9% commission on each sale does not seem so tempting. I also understand that Paypal charges sellers a fee as well.

 

I really do not want to get raked over the coals here, and ideally selling the coins for more than I purchased them for would be nice.

 

I have never sold any of my coins so I could use some advice here. I trust the members of the forum and would like to avoid as much unnecessary crap as possible.

 

Most of them are Russian minor coins from 1731 to 1917. I have no experience in photographing coins, so I could use a few pointers there as well.

 

I would like to sell these coins to free up some money to purchase other wonderful Russian Imperials.

 

Any advice would be great!

In an effort to save time, here is a list with approximate grades:

because of low grage coins, ebay would be a best choice for sale, unless you can sell it by private party - in my opinion - good luck !

Sometimes it helps becoming a seller to understand what you want as well as the buyer. I have sold some coins before and I know what makes me pay less or more. Good photos help and if there are a lot of common coins, it might help if you group them. There are always new collectors everyday.

 

I might group the later silver and copper as two groups and then the earlier ones as another one. Can always sell individually but it will be more consuming and more expensive.
