I've aquired these two pieces and they have been on a damp basement for years as you can see by the background paper. My question is should I leave them in these frames or take them out and put them in sleeves. Thanks, I hope I'm on the right forim

Better photos of the coins would help determine their grade and condition. Weird that both frames seen to recount a story about the 49rs during the gold rush which haze zero to do with Mercury dimes and Liberty nickels.

@brick, better pics would help, but unless you can think of a reason why storing these coins and stamps in damaged aftermarket holders adds to the value, my vote is to just split them apart and store all of this material properly.

I agree - remove the coins and store them in proper archival numismatic holders.

I have to agree . Much larger photos needed to give you a more better opinion on what to do with those framed pieces .

Why do they all have a bluish to purplish hue?

The coins you showed are late date Mercury dimes that look like they have been cleaned harshly and are retoning. As a result they have very little value so I wouldn't think about putting any more money into these coins. The 1936 is a little better if it has a D mintmark in the reverse but is still worth very little in this condition.

So these are junk bucket bound? This is turning out to be one expensive hobby. Unless silver goes thru the roof sometime before I'm worm bait.

The stamps (if real and complete) aren't a cheap set either.

The Trans-Mississippi Exposition (1898) stamps I used to sell, way back when stamps were still a great hobby to be in, (1979-1983) would have brought $12K to 25K for a really nice unused set. Today a lot, lot less but still not junk either (per my link).

Its really a shame that the USPS expedite in diminished stamp collecting, once they promote self adhesive stamps collectors complaint they can't put it into their stock books.

I wonder at time when will coin collecting be in the next 5 -10 years.
