Displaying Coins in a 20 Coin plastic Page holding 2 x 2 's

This has to do with displaying coins for sale. I bought a coin collection with many Canadian coins. 1800 Silver Dimes and a lot of Canadian large cents from the 1850s. While playing with them and putting them in 2 x 2's I started to date the 2x 2's and then stopped . !!!! What side of the coin do I display in the 2 x 2 . The front with the face or the reverse with the date showing... Simple Question . .... what is the right way .. The 2 x 2 has the date and grade . What side of the coin should I show. ??

    I have gotten them with stuff on both sides - year/date/denomination on front and secret code on reverse designating ?purchase price/source/date ?

    I would display the side with the date.

    It's however you want them.

    Are you more into the obverse and what it looks like?
    Or, are you a compulsive type of person who needs to see the dates?

    Are you doing this for yourself or for others?

    The date isn't always on the obv. I would want to show the date anyway. But that's just me. Peace Roy

    And since they are in pages................you can always turn the page to see the other side :)

    I always orient my coins to show the side I prefer. I do not sell coins, and no one else cares anyway. :D Cheers, RickO
