Coliecting coins can be a good investment, but it lequires the study of popularity, availability. and grading<br />
techniques. Some coins are more desirable than others, their popularity being affected by the aftists' talent,<br />
the subject of the design, the material from which the coin is made, and the time period when the eoin was<br />
created. Availability is just as critical. Providing the coin is otherwise interesting or pleasing to the eye, the<br />
number of coins minted and available on the market seems to have a direct relationship to the popularity.<br />
The ability to grade coins is perhaps the most imporlant requirement of a collector. A coin that is<br />
popular and scarce, rvhich would normally td . it valuable, may be worth much less or nothing at all if it<br />
has a low grade. Grading is standardized, and one can buy books and take courses on how to do it.<br />
.<br />
Grades are given letter designations as well as numbers. The letters represent general levels of the<br />
grade, while the numbers are more detailed. For example, there are 1i number grades within the letter<br />
grade for a mint state coin. A mint state coin is uncirculated, which means it has never been used in<br />
commerce. It is in the condition that it left the mint, the place where a coin is created. The mint state letter<br />
designation is MS, and the numbers range from 60 through 70. An absolutely perfect coin is MS-70, It<br />
takes much training and a good eye to tell the difference between coins in this range. The things one<br />
considers include whether the coin has contaet rnarks, which are malks obtained when coins bounee<br />
against each other in a coin bag; liairlines, which are marks appearing on the face of the coin frcm the<br />
minting process; luster, which is the natural colcration; and eye appeal. For example, an MS-70 is said to<br />
have no contact marks" no hairlines, very attractive and fuliy original Eruster, and outstanding eye appeal,<br />
n'hile air MS-60 *uj huur heavy contact marks, noticeable hairlines, impaired luster, and poor eye appeai.<br />
Below the mint state coin, the letter designation and number have the same meaning. That is, there<br />
are generaliy no numbers within the range of letters. But there are categories:<br />

<br />
:<br />
<br />
tle<br />
<br />
e<br />
<br />

<br />
Coins thaf are About Uncirculated: Very Choice About Uncirculated, known as AU-58;<br />
Choice About Uncir,culated, known as AU-55; and About Uncirculated, known as AU-50.<br />
Coins that are Fine: Choice Extremely Fine, known as EF-45; Extremely Fine, known as EF-<br />
<br />
40; Choice Very Fine, knoiam as VF-30; Very Fine, known as VF-20; and Fine, known as F-12.<br />
e Coins that are Good: Very Good, known as VG-8; Good, known as G-4; and About Good,<br />
known as AG-3.<br />
Thus, a circulated coin can have a number designation between 3 and 58, with only the numbers<br />
shown above available. That is, one cannot have a coin with a grade of 6, for example. It is either G-4 or<br />
VG-8. It is possible for a coin labeled G-4 or even AG-3 to be extremely valuable, but generally it will be a<br />
coin that is almost unavailable in higher grades. Books and publications monitor the coin market regularly,<br />
just like the stock market is monitored, and they described a coin's type, date, and grade, assigning a price<br />
to every one unless that grade would have no value.<br />
In general, coin collectors loathe cleaned coins, so artificial cleaning by adding any chemical will<br />
detract greatly from a coin's value. A true coin collector will say the dirt in the creases is a positive<br />
attribute and much preferable to a cleaned coin.<br />

that have followed the children of working mothers have not been<br />
able to show any long-term problems, compared with children whose mothers stayed at home. My personal<br />
<br />
(47)<br />
<br />
is that mothers should be allowed to work if they wish. Whether we like it or not, there<br />
are a number of mothers who just have to work. There are those who have invested such a big part of their<br />
<br />
lives in establishing a career that they cannot afford to see it lost. Then there are many who must work out<br />
of pure economic (48)<br />
. Many mothers are not<br />

After a few months at home with a much loved infant, they feel trapped and isolated.<br />
There are a number of options when it (50)<br />
to choosing childcare. These range from child<br />
minders and nannies through to.Granny or the kind lady (51)<br />

however, many parents don't have any choioe; they have to accept anything they can get. Be prepared! No<br />
