I see no problem .. if you own something, you can do with it what you want. My personal opinion is that the vast vast majority (did I say vast strong enough?) of anything that the RCM puts out is numismatically worthless and severely overpriced. If you want to collect RCM crapola, that's fine .. but...
I've got an old Digital Blue QX-5 video scope for viewing coins on the computer screen and/or sending them to friends.

Here's what I got from a Token collector from another site: "This piece is a restrike, but still commands a decent price in the $1500 - $2000 range. Originals are about 3X – 4X the price of a restrike. The original pieces have round O’s in the lettering, whereas the restrikes are oval ‘0’s. Als...
You will need to have a real-life token expert look at your Token .. not just a random coin dealer. According to my Charlton Canadian Colonial Token book, those in copper are extremely rare, but there was a proof also struck that is listed at $750. The coins were never officially struck for circulat...
