How To Create Your Own Coin Collecting Kit (numismatic rare coins)

5. Glasses that magnify

To rank the coins, magnifying glasses offer a big helping hand. Though 7x magnification is the most recommended one by numismatists, but even magnification in the range of 4x to 10x will complete the job pretty well.

For examining the degree of excellence and the genuineness of coins, a magnifying glass is of great help. Defects which can't be seen by the naked eye like scratches or even hairlines can be brought to notice by magnifying glass. This is a good thing as such defects affect the coin-value in a negative way.

6. Light Source

A source of light should be kept at a distance of half a meter from the workstation. A 75-watt lamp that's incandescent or a halogen lamp is suggested for this purpose.

7. Tools for handling

The quality of the coins gets diminished by the marks of finger. So, coin-collectors who are serious about their hobby use gloves meant for surgical purposes and pads made of velvet for coin-handling.

Finally, the preliminary kit of coin-handling is ready. So, have a great time following your hobby!
