Just wondering how people display their hammered coins, particularly the smaller ones like pennies?
I know a lot of folks store them in folders or in draws within cabinets ect, but I am wondering how to actually display them? Coin capsules on a stand seem popular, but would a hammered penny be lost in such a display?

Also, do people only display the coins that in reasonable condition, or do they display their manky ( that's a coin collectors term! :D ) hammereds as well?

I have a few loose in the display cabinet but they're mostly in an album, hidden from the world. I need to address that.

If some of my neighbours on my estate knew what I had I would be robbed, seriously. :lol: you can see drug deals going on daily. So i display nothing and not many people know what sort of collection I have, which is a shame as I have some nice bits etc and even fewer people know that I even detect :thumbsup:

I don’t display my coins, they are in a coin cabinet. In the other display thread I shared some ideas others have used which I think I might copy. I have the same concerns others have of attracting unwanted visitors to my home though. A lot of people think all hammered coins are worth a lot of money, when they aren’t, so it does potentially attract thieves :thumbdown:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Rather than just display hammered coins flat, I try putting them on some pottery found with or near them, with the better condition ones on the top or near front & the worse ones underneath.

It's a sad world when we have to think about things like this, but it is definately a consideration. The only thing of real value I have found is a 15th/16th possey ring, but the Government grabbed that before the local scum bags had a chance! :P
