Franklin Halves

Can you coin collectors/Ebayers help me out?

I have a number of valuable coins (Morgan Dollars, Franklin Half Dollars, Walking Liberty Half Dollar etc.) that I would like to sell on Ebay. I don't know anything about coins though. Here are my questions:

1. How do you take a good picture of a coin to show all the details (the ones I've taken are always blurry)?

2. What kinds of details would coin collectors want to know before buying (besides year, mint, etc.)?

3. How do you determine the condition of a coin?

4. Should I sell each coin individually, or should I sell them in sets? (If sets, should I sell them by year, by mint or what in order to get the most money?)

Thanks

From a collector point of view I like clear photos that let me see the details of the coins, front and back. This way I can determine if I agree with your assessment of the condition of the coin and I can determine what I think is a fair value for the coin.

Most libraries have reference books on coins. You would want one such as "The official ANA Grading Standards for US Coins". With a little practice you can probably get within one grade of a coin. It takes years to become really good at grading. From the grading book you can see what details a collector will be looking for on a coin.

I would sell the coins in lots with minimum values of say $50.00. That way you maximize the bidding process by giving people workable bidding increments and minimize the effects of shipping and handling on the final bids (I would rather spend $4.00 on a $50.00 lot than a $20.00 lot). Generally the lots should be by series as this is the most popular way people collect coins.

Good luck and have fun.
