"Inherited" a bunch of foreign coins. What's the best way to know if anything is valuable?
Hi Coin Folks,
This is my first post in the coin forum, although I spend a lot of time in the card forums.
I have a box of foreign coins that was left to me when my grandfather passed away. Maybe a kg or two.
From your experience, what's the most efficient way for me to figure out if I have anything valuable?
No surprise...I've seen foreign coins go for $50 each, or for $3/pound on eBay.
Should I just try to identify them one by one and check eBay sales? That would take forever.
For instance, in cards I could easily tell someone that any 1987-1990 Topps cards aren't worth the paper they are printed on. Any similar rules of thumb for foreign coins?
Thanks in advance!
