Really fantastic collection. Amazing how you got all those in Russia. So many look better than some I've seen here in the USA.

Here's my two best proof coins.
Also, I would like to say that mostly collectors in Russia don't like slabbed coins and even hating them, calling slabs a coffins. These two I bought for 13$.
Do you know what mean that green circle stickers, or it putted by a seller?

And two more dead proofs, I took it for a buck to make an cleaning experiment, i'll do it when my quardum capsules will arrive, to put the coins into immediately.
I will try rinsing in high-purity gasoline/acetone, and acid/alkali on the cotton swab. If it won't work I will not be upset because of price. On usual unc coins it works without getting ugly pink color on cleaned surfaces.

Got the best PF70, it' can be hard getting some here! Be real careful with the gas/acetone if mixing, isn't a stable mixture, highly volatile, more so than one or the other by themselves! Also do NOT rub a proof coin with anything, even a q-tip, the fiber will cause micro-scratches on the polished planchet and remove that necessary metal for luster... do it carefully, let the acetone air dry rinse in a distilled water and air dry. Proofs are different than just a Mint state coin that way.

Thanks for your feedback!
Lionel90 sent me a test letter with some LC. He didn't use to fill a customs declatarion because non of it for this type of mailing (Intl First Class letter). Payed only 3$. 2 or 3 weeks of waiting and we would know is this way works. Thank you Lionel90, it's very kindly and makes me happy.
Also I bought some more proof pennies without any package (but they still looks good) and quadrum capsules for it. Show them when will be delivered. 1956, 62, 64, 68, 76.
And I'm waiting for this coin I show before

No, all US coins are spread on almost a whole territory. In Moscow too, but not very often. Usually it's small and not small cities in various regions. I'm always buying it using a mail services.
I can share our main marketplace (like eBay) if you curios to see what availble and prices, write me an email. This site is on russian, but it's easy to figure out. Anyway, i'll be happy to get any emails, so feel free sending it to me even if you just want to chat.

Forgot to show you my best V nickel.
It was in stock in the one shop for at least 6 months before I bought it for 6$.

Yes these green stickers were added by someone like the seller (as opposed to the coffin-maker--the TPG).
