    People walking around the gun show I mark them copy on the holder and the coin is marked copy and I tell them that they are copy/replicas and not real. I also sell real Wheaties and Buffalos and Halves and Morgans that I am upgrading from my collection.


    I got the Chinese coins to scrollsaw for Christmas Ornaments and pendants, I can't bring myself to cut up a real coin.
