recent inheritance of coin collection

Kevin Bartlett

Recommended Posts

We have inherited a coin collection of coins from around the world including a number of Canadian commemorative silver and gold coins. 

They are in their own presentation cases with descriptions of their issue. I would like to know how to assess whether they are uncirculated, proof or prooflike etc and how to gauge their quality.

Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks, I live in Southern Spain and numismatics doesnt appear to be high on their list of interests. The internet has so much conflicting info especially regarding the American coins i have, including an 1883 Carson City silver dollar with carson city mintmark, that i feel i am going round in circles and i really do not want to post upwards of 400 coins to a stranger. I have ordered the catalogue of world coins so maybe this can allow me to filter out only those that would need a further appraisal.

Thanks for your suggestions
