The term "soft" is NOT the way coin dealers think of such coins.

Try "well worn, slick, scrap" in your searches.

What specificaly are you after? Morgans, Barbers, Franklins? If you 're looking for something different I have a set of 4 well worn English silver Half Crowns that date from the late 18th Century, slightly bigger than half dollars, but comparitivly smaller than US dollar size coinage.


Best, Adam

An email to Jamie might help you out here. He even artificially 'softens' coins.

Indeed it does. But it's not just a matter of buying sandpaper and sanding the coin. A gradual steppped process is needed for uniformity and authenticity. It's a real pain in the hand. BTW Adam, your video was a lot of fun to watch, thanks.

Go to a coin website, they always sell worn coins and guess what!!! they are cheaper than nice new coins! wow...talk about strange huh. lol

I have often wondered why dealers chagre more for coins that are in worse condition! when they are much cheaper for them to buy!
