Wind Chimes, the Gift of Music

Ever since childhood, I’ve been a musical person. At the age of seven, I started taking piano lessons. When I was a teenager, I began singing solos at community events. Not surprisingly, I adore wind chimes. Every time the wind blows, these beautiful music makers spring into action. Their soothing, melodious, and high pitched sound calms and refreshes me. I am amazed at the amount of eclectic wind chimes available for sale at various retailers. One can enjoy the music of pig, cat, or even seashell themed wind chimes. If you know someone who enjoys natural harmonies, wind chimes make a perfect gift. On this blog, you will discover how to buy the right set of wind chimes for your loved one. Enjoy!

3 Options for Getting Your Coin Collection Appraised

Tyler Morgan

If you have a coin collection — whether you've recently inherited it from a deceased family member or built it yourself over a period of several years — you probably want to know what it's worth. The average person doesn't have the expertise to put value on their own coin collection, so it's a good idea to turn to a professional for help. Your best option is to find an experienced coin appraiser who can take a careful look at each of the coins in your collection and tell you exactly what they're worth in today's market. Here are three options to consider for getting your coin collection appraised.


If you have trouble finding a coin appraiser in your community, you don't have to give up. Instead, look for someone who can handle online submissions of coins. Many coin appraisers offer this service to their clients. While the exact series of steps can vary based on the appraiser you select, you'll generally take detailed photos of each side of every coin you want to get appraised, submit the photos electronically, and answer any questions the appraiser has. Before long, they'll email you a detailed breakdown of the value of each of your coins.

By Mail

The online method can be appealing to lots of people, but if you aren't overly confident in your ability to take high-quality photos, you might favor another approach. Look for a coin appraiser to whom you can submit your collection by mail. This is another option to consider if you don't have an appraiser who lives near you. It's relatively easy to bundle up your collection, take it to the nearest post office branch, and send it to the appraiser. Once they've appraised it, they'll mail or courier it back to you.

In Person

A lot of coin appraisers accept coin collections in person. You'll find someone in your area, speak to them to arrange a drop-off time, and then arrive at their location with your collection in hand. Generally, you'll leave the collection with the appraiser so that they can take their time with it. When the appraisal process is complete, you'll meet the appraiser in person to learn what your collection is worth. This meeting will be highly educational, as you'll get a chance to hear detailed information about the highest-value coins in the collection. Look online to find a coin collection appraisal service in your area.
