Coin Storage and Preservation
« on: December 24, 2012, 08:40:13 PM »
Hi Everyone,

I started a new business focusing on storage products for coins and other collectibles.  The products utilize Intercept Technology, which some of you may be familiar with.  While I only have a couple of products to offer at the moment, I hope to add more in the future.  I hope you find the information useful and the products beneficial for the long-term storage of your coins. The business and products were developed out of my own need for storage and protection.  This is an area which I have great interest in, and a passion for the proper storage and protection of valuable collectibles.

The website is:

If you have any questions, you can email me at:

thanks.

Chris

Good luck on starting your new business. The intercept shield products have been tested for many years and proved to be effective in coins and banknotes storage and protection. I use it for high value coins as an extra protection in my bank safety box.

Congratulations on your new business, Chris! I visited your online store already. Do you have smaller packages, say 10 for the smaller slab, so that customers can try out?

Hi Fwang2450,

Thanks for the feedback!!!, much appreciated.  The quantities were designed to be cost effective, but I see your point.  I should be able to make the change by tomorrow, so pls check back.  Obviously the per unit cost will be higher due to the lower quantity.

thanks,
Chris

I noticed yours is the Third Edition.  I have the 2nd edition which is a slim hardcover book with 72 pages.  Does the third edition have more and newer materials?  Where can I buy one, I could not find it on Amazon?

The third edition is a compilation of articles written by Weimar over the past 19 years.  I think I bought it from a website, but it was extremely hard to find.

The 2nd edition is also a compilation of 21 articles from 1989 to 2003.  It was published in 2004.  One thing it can really improve upon is the quality of photos.  Since this book is about coin cleaning and preservation, high resolution before & after photos would be really helpful.  That was lacking in the 2nd edition, otherwise it is very informative.

The third edition was published in 2012 and the preface says it contains three new articles from the previous edition.  So not much of a change. And yes, the pictures could have been of higher quality.
