COINS CLOSE UP
Joshua Gambill, 7, and coin collector Wayne Long, both of La Grande, examine old coins during a coin collecting workshop led by Long at the La Grande Public Library Saturday. Long discussed how the grade and condition of a coin affects worth, how to spot counterfeit coins, and how a delicate cleaning process, if any at all, must be followed in order to preserve the value of a coin. Long has been a coin collector since 1969 and is serving a one-year term as president of the Grande Ronde Coin Club.
