Premium Uncleaned Coins from the Balkans
These coins are NOT junk, trust me. 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, most 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 3/4s and Æ4s that didn't quite meet the size requirement. None of these coins have been 'cherry-picked' in any manner. Customers have reported to us finding Dalmatius, denarius, and OMG, Celtic silver coins, as well. Our opinion is that, properly cleaned and restored, nearly half of these coins will clean up to Fine or better condition, many with a green patina and easily attributed via RIC.
Head's up for our friends outside the USA!
Your new International Flat Rate cost to Canada is $30/order. All other countries is $40. Yikes, don't blame me, blame our Postal Service! Buying just nine or ten of these coins is simply silly. We highly suggest that you purchase at least 25 to keep your cost per coin at a much lower level. Just saying...
Remember, you're buying at a 'per coin' price, not for all seen in the photo.
Happy Hunting? For sure! Don't forget to add flips and pages to your order...you'll need them, trust me.
