What’s the Dumbest thing you ever done to a PM coin? or any coin.
I want this to be a lighthearted thread. We all got to laugh or smile sometimes…
I bought a Saint-Gaudens $20 in a NGC slab a while back. Yesterday I realized that I never took off the little price label the coin shop put on the slab so I took it off and there was a bit of glue left on the slab. No problem, I had a bottle of acetone right next to my desk & acetone removes glue right? it also melts plastic but I didn’t think that far ahead. So I wiped the glue off and then I remembered that acetone melts plastic. Well it didn't melt it but its not a nice as it was before the " Million dollar Idea" to remove the glue. Now an hour later my stupidity made me smile. The Coin wasn’t touched so it’s fine and it can be reholdered but that’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever done to an expensive coin. What’s your dumbest thing you’ve ever done to a coin????
