Premium Uncleaned Coins from the Balkans
These coins are NOT Junk, trust me.
FYI - I was too lazy to count out these special coins and Sheri did it for me in the back yard. She can be counted to not 'cherry-pick' any of them and she counted them into bags of 100 each, and that is important for bulk buyers.
In the past, we have referred to these as ‘beginner coins’ or ‘excellent for honing your cleaning skills' or ‘practice coins.’ These are not.
As seen in the photo, each of these LRBC issues are simply covered with soft dirt that will respond best with DW soaks and mechanical cleaning with dental picks, common scalpels, and tooth brushing, etc.
These ‘Balkan Coins’ are just the same as our True Premium issues, but just a bit smaller. Æ 3, Æ 3/4s and Æ4s that didn't quite meet the size.
Our opinion is that, properly cleaned and restored, nearly all these coins will clean up to VF or better condition, with a green patina and easily attributed via RIC.
Remember, you're buying at a 'per coin' price.
Happy Hunting? For sure! Don't forget to add flips and pages to your order...you'll need them, trust me.
