Canadian Coins and tokens

Hello I recently purchased a small hoard of U.S. and Canadian Coins as well as a few world Coins.
These coins are from the late 1700’s through the 1800’s.
Are there any experts as well as buyers for these types of Coins on this forum?
Can you please tell me the best approach for getting some opinions on value along with identifying some of these Coins?
Should I list a half dozen at a time in a thread or just one at a time in a thread?

    Half dozen at a time is OK. Best to have images.

  • Okay I can do that.
    Should I start a new thread each time or one thread then continue to post images. I don’t want to make things confusing.

    Start with one thread. If it gets confusing, start another.

  • That’s it for this evening. I am tired and it’s not much fun doing this at the moment.
    What would really be nice is if someone would make me an offer on what I have posted so far. I have received a couple of requests to send privately to email. I would prefer to give a few people a shot in the spirit of a “fair offer”.

    You probably need to reshoot the 1787 Fugio Cent. Better focus needed. A white or light background would load faster too, wood grain isn't focus or photo loading friendly (don't especially need to change the earlier ones, however).

    Sadly everything posted so far suffers from environmental damage with many having also been previously cleaned.

    There's also a US hard times token and UK temperance spielmarke in this group.

    Just curious, were these stored in a tin can?

    Somebody will punt something halfway decent for the Fugio Cent.

    The 1781 copper coin from Brazil (20 Reis, it looks like) appeals to me despite some corrosion.

  • BroadstruckBroadstruck Posts: 26,964 ✭✭✭✭

    Yeah the Fugio is worth 3 figures.

    I bought a lot like this a few years ago just for one token and soaked all in mineral oil.

    Later tossing all I didn't want on eBay for 99 cents thinking some might fetch $4-8?

    Quite a few sold in the $20-40 levels with many being sent back to Canada.

  • As for damage I have to tell you that just a little water on a paper towel has removed a great deal of whatever sits on these Coins. I can see why you think they look damaged because of the images but in reality they brighten up very easily. I am not talking about anything more than water and a paper towel.

    Do Not Clean The Coins best to leave them original patina

    Better photos helps a ton.

    You are not helping your cause by cleaning the coins.

    But this is a better piece than I first thought.

    The "Keep Your Temper" medalet is a whist marker, but close enough.

  • BroadstruckBroadstruck Posts: 26,964 ✭✭✭✭

    Are you rubbing them with a wet paper towel?

    By brightening up that fugio cent like that you lost half its couple hundred dollar value.
