    1887 crown, opinions?

    Could I get opinions on this crown. I don't have a huge budget and found this for £50. I've seen the rim dinks which I can live with. Has the coin been cleaned? It's shiny although I cant see lots of hairlines? Ebay 301652562919 Thanks in advance.

    Mentioning genuine twice in the title is always a little suspicious?

    Favourite designed coin

    I think the design on the 1 & 2 lire (1908-1917) from Italy is fantastic.

    Advice on coin storage

    Hi folks, I keep all my coins in 2x2 cardboard holders, but I am a little slow sometimes when I new coin arrives. I work full time in a hospital and have a young daughter so finding time sometimes can be tricky. Does anybody know how long a coin can be kept in either the pvc pouches or small ziplock bags, that coins very often arrive in from ebay, without damaging the coin? Just out of curiosity, ive read that pvc and other materials can damage coins over tine, what damage is actually caused? Many thanks in advance. Charlie
