What to do with a ton of uncirculated 64 half dollars?
I inherited a large number of silver Kennedy half-dollars...I'm not a collector. They are uncirculated at least, and I would say mint condition since I've done my homework enough to understand that luster cartwheel effect is one of the characteristics collectors like to see. As far as I know they've been in holders for the past 57 years.
I have noticed on E-bay people sell these with coin grades, and I was wondering how this is worth the cost of grading. Is bulk grading economically feasible for something this common? In any case I intend to hold on to them as a small hedge against inflation to go with my gold ETF.
Barring grading and having them all boxed, how should they be stored? I assume plastic coin holders aren't great, gravity and any movement can scratch right?
