Scale;0.001g
Loupe: 10x for normal use and 12x or 14x for error/variety. Hasting triplet is best but a doublet will do. Nothing higher then 14x though. Don't know what coin sleeves you are referring to. Where?,LCS,eBay,Amazon

Thanks, John1 I knew I would say that wrong! Looking at the site Ham1947 supplied,They are preformed wrappers.

Paper wrappers are free from your bank,they are flat though. I used to buy boxes of 1000 cent wrappers (flat) on eBay. If you (have) to have pre-formed,check prices at dollar stores,Wal-Mart,Stapples,OfficeMax etc.

I like Wizards primarily because I can always find anything I need or want, and some things I didn't even know I needed or wanted. Fast shipping, great service.

+1 for Wizard.

I buy most of my supplies from them and just about everything else from Amazon....with the occasional Dansco from my local coin dealer(s).

Also check out JP'S Corner, cheapest I have found for most of the supplies I use.

I get little 2x3 bags from my local arts & crafts store. Hobby Lobby usually has them for about $2 per 100 (2x3" size) and you can use a 40% off coupon to make them cheaper.

I actually bought a 30/60x lighted loupe from Amazon (about $6) and it's pretty good for the really up close stuff.

I don't think that one usually needs a scale with 0.001g sensitivity, but whatever floats your boat. Mine is 0.01g, goes up to about 200g, and cost about $12. I sometimes wish I had sprung for one that could go up to 500g.

Are you planning to sell? If so, a $20 postage scale is a must have--the print at home discount will pay for itself after a few dozen sales.
