    Any of these look gradeable?

    That was an interesting video with some really neat coins, but in my opinion, I'd save the fees you'd incur by getting those coins graded and put that money towards more coins and or more PM's. If any of them were in high uncirculated grades, then maybe it could be worth it for a couple of them. The 1831 Russian 5 kopek, as cool as it is, would be gradeable if in a higher uncirculated grade, but cost-effectiveness-wise, it'd be a waste of your hard earned money at this point, brother. Again, just my honest opinion. And just to add, I'm not being critical of your coins any more than I am of my own, because I still believe that if any coin isn't "worth" at least a couple hundred $$ minimum, then it's a waste of money to grade them. Bottom line is you can always do what you want to with them, but I've always known you to be a savvy buyer, at least most of the time and I believe that you'd want to stay on that path. Ha!

    I don't plan on grading any of them... just a fun topic.

    Man, I do love the old Libertads and the 8 reales. As always, so much history there and (usually) with low mintages. A collector's dream!

    Mexican stuff is awfully nice, I must say.

    Yes, Sir. It's so hard to find in uncirculated grades, but when you do, the beautiful designs are striking. I recently sold a 1717 J Spanish reale to a guy who had been wanting one for much of his life and he was flabbergasted. He said that he slept with it on his nightstand that night. Lol!
