Now that you have a general idea, we ask that you please pre-sort your items before coming in. It will help the process go faster. Please sort by denomination then type. For example, separate the Indian Head Cents from the Wheat Cents, the silver Dimes from the non-silver ones, and the Large Notes from Small Notes. Plastic baggies and envelopes are fine for temporary storage.

 

If you have a significant number of items, we also ask that you please make an appointment. That way if we already have a large estate coming, you won’t have to wait.

 

P.S. Do NOT clean any of it.
