Hello,

I have a few stacks of Kennedy halves, Morgan and Peace dollars just sitting around (safely stored) and I want to put them in tubes.

Any particularly strong opinions about which option is best or preferred etc.

Thanks!

I use coin tubes for storing lower value, common coins--not for pristine and/or high $$ pieces.

I love round crystal clear plastic tubes with screw-on caps . Keeps coins in pristine condition for multiple decades . They do not contain PVC contributors . The tubes I don't like are the square ones that you can't see through , these are made of a softer plastic which I believe are not good for keeping coins in BU condition . they're only liked by some because they are less likely to fall over compared to the round tubes .
Now if you want to salt away OBW rolls of Lincoln Cents , put them original paper wrapped , in Nickel tubes ; they will fit nice and snug no rattle .

In Memory of Butch L.
and Jim U. rest in peace .

Do some comparison shopping on Amazon, eBay, Wizard Coin Supply. I keep my 90% circulated silver in tubes, some just in plastic baggies. For tubes I have a few screw on type lids that sometimes get loose. I prefer the push on lids.

Thanks everyone. I have some circulated Kennedy halves and some Morgans and peace which are just about bullion....and I'm leaning toward screw top. The Kennedy halves stacks get difficult to move around the safe without knocking over...thanks again.
