A Novice Looking for Advice
First, I just want to say that I love the forum and all of your knowledge about coins. My questions pertain to receiving proof sets from my father-in-law. We received basically all of the 1980s-mid 1990s sets as well as some Franklin half dollar era proof sets(54,57,60,61). All of the coins have never been touched. The coins from the 50s proof sets are in a plastic case with screws. The half dollars have what appears to be some oxidation on them.
My first question is, will the oxidation or coloring on the half dollars affect the price?
My second question is, if I were to send them in to have them graded how would I go about that? I really don't want to open the sets before sending them in.
Some of you guys and girls have some awesome coins and I'm sure these aren't too rare or anything, but they look pretty cool to me. Any advice would be helpful. If you guys want some pictures I can take some, but they will be from my phone lol.
