Answering Questions about Collecting Paper Money

Paper money collecting is a great hobby for anyone interested in the history of U.S. and worldwide currency, or anyone interested in picking up a hobby that can lead to significant financial returns. Like any hobby, collecting paper money takes time to get good at, but there are some important things you should know upfront to help get your collection efforts off on the right foot. Here are answers to some of the most common questions people have before starting a paper money collection in Rockville, MD.

Q: What are collectible bills worth?
Collectible paper money can range in value depending on lots of different factors, so it’s hard to say exactly how much certain bills are worth. Collectible bills can fetch hundreds of dollars or even hundreds of thousands of dollars at auction depending on age, condition, historical significance, etc.

Q: What are the best bills for a new paper money collector?
With so many different bills to choose from, it’s almost impossible to say which specific currency notes are best for a beginning paper money collector. There also isn’t a rule when it comes to buying your first collectable bill, so you’re free to choose any note that captures your interest and fits in your budget.

Q: Where can I purchase paper money?
There are lots of different sources where you can purchase paper money for your collection. You can buy collectable bills online and at auctions, but it’s preferable to purchase paper money in-person from a reputable dealer. There are a lot of people out there passing off fake bills as the real thing, which is why buying from a dealer is often the safest and smartest route.

What Beginners Need to Know About Building a Stamp Collection

Collecting stamps can be a wonderfully fulfilling hobby, especially if you’re looking for a hobby that has the potential to be very lucrative. Although most people collect stamps to feed an aesthetic or historical interest in stamps, others seek out rare stamps in the hope of building a collection that can generate serious cash in the future. Either way, the first for anyone interested in starting a stamp collection is learning the basics of building a worthy collection. Here are some stamp collection tips from the leading stamp and coin experts in Rockville, MD.

Get the Right Tools

If you’re serious about stamp collecting, you’ll want to invest in the right tools of the trade. For starters, you’ll want to invest in a quality pair of gloves and special tweezers so you can safely handle your stamps without damaging them. You should also invest in a good magnifying glass so you can examine the fine details and qualities of the stamps you add to your collection.

Buy Your First Stamps

When you’re ready to start building your stamp collection, you’ll of course need to buy your first stamps. Your budget and personal interests will determine where you shop for stamps and the type of stamps you buy. If you have never bought stamps before, we recommend you buy stamps in person so you can have an informative in-person discussion with a stamp expert to ensure you purchase the best stamps that meet your goals and interests.

Store Stamps Properly

As important as it is that you buy high quality stamps from a reputable dealer, it’s even more important that you store them properly after taking possession of them. Stockbooks are the most popular type of display album used by stamp collectors, although you may want a more protective option if you are buying and selling very rare or very valuable stamps.

Coins of the Realm makes it easy to start this popular hobby. We have one of the largest selections of U.S. and worldwide stamps in Rockville and the surrounding areas. We also provide expert stamp appraisals so you can know exactly how much your collectables are worth. For additional information, call us at (301) 340-1640.
