*** Moved by Staff to a more appropriate forum. ***

I am thinking about buying some coin tubes for the silver dimes I have, and was wondering which one's I should buy. (I never realized how many different brands/types there were) Here are the two that I am looking at right now.

1. I like the look of these ones (and after reading some other post's on this topic, people were suggesting them) but I am not sure if they have a screw on lid or not.

2. These were the ones I had found first, and liked that they had a screw on lid. But am not sure how durable these ones are. (They look like they will crack easily).

Which one would you suggest?

Thanks

The square ones I don't think have screw tops but the other one does.

I use the square tubes, they look the same as the ones there... the lids do not screw on, but they have a definitive snap to them and they do not pop open if that's what you're worried about.

I like the square because they stack nicely and do not roll around, also they have some "extra" material so it seems like they are sturdier... though I never used the round ones though so I can't honestly say if that makes a difference.

And like jaycutler I my coin shop has them for 50 cents each, so the prices on those links are a bit on the high side.

Also depending on how many you need you might be able to get them from an online coin supply company at an even lower cost.

OK, Thanks. That was one of the things I was worried about.

I have checked a few coin supply places, and most of them do not offer shipping to Canada.

Just a little update

I found the tubes that I wanted on the "Wizard Coin Supply" website at a good price. I could buy 5 tubes for $1.70! when I get to the checkout page, I realize that the shipping cost to Canada is $22.26...

I've had bad luck with Wizard Coin Supply anyway... I placed an order with them, and it turned out they had no one in the office because they were all at a big show, but didn't mention it until after they had charged my card. Then they still didn't ship my order until a week after they allegedly were back.

If there are any coin shows are shops in your area, you can find these cheap. Check any sort of hobby store too.

The closest dealer to me is about an hour and a half away, and of course they are out of the dime tubes.

I have lots of small little dime tubes that I had gotten for free. What I really need is cent or quarter tubes. Maybe we can work something out

I've got bunches of square quarter tubes, offhand I'd say "at least" 10.... I could use some dime tubes if Canadian Banknotes doesnt take you up on that offer.

Oh, Thanks for the offer Coppertop. I bought some dime tubes a while ago.
