I want to sell coin supplies and collect coins, not to sell coins and collect coin supplies
My eyes are killing me. I stopped looking at cents about three weeks ago. Catarid and Whak-a-mote ain’t helping them any; hence, my activity in threads.
As I read, I get ignoranter in more ways than one—relatively: know more and figure that you know less than you thought—and looking for my niche in the field amongst you (underneath the low bar there’s some space.)
I do not have a systematic method of looking at coins, specifically Lincoln cents, other than the play of guessing the date from the reverse.
I get it that you’re gonna to look in a specific area for a specific variety. I’m not there yet. I refer to the first examination of the coin (assuming that one knows few DD, RPM, variety); top to bottom, the order in which you examine the devices—Lincoln specific and any generality to all coins. To anyone who wants to explain a method: I will read it, and appreciate it. This is the important question.
Organization is a hobby itself, I moan, no one can help me. I would rather earn money selling coin supplies and collect coins, than selling coins and collecting coin supplies.
(I sell very few coins.)
Thanks for your time, your posts and your tolerance.
