Coins from years of travel

I have inherited coins from travel. My late family member worked for the airlines and traveled the world. I have world coins from may different places. I have no idea how to sell them or convert them. I am in the process of downsizing.

Any advice?

I also inherited coins in slabs. I suppose a coin dealer would help with that or sell on an auction site?

Thank you for reading!

Did McConnell Put Warren Right Where He Wants Her?

Senate GOP boss elevates left‘s hero, maybe because she‘s not strongest 2020 Democratic option

Sure, he’s a really buttoned-down guy working to prevent the Senate from getting totally bottled-up, but there are solid reasons to suspect Mitch McConnell wants a “Nevertheless, she persisted” hoodie as much as anyone.

The majority leader is obviously much more Brooks Brothers than Raygun. Still, he may well realize that his latest grandmaster move in the never-ending game of electoral chess requires ditching the rep stripe tie in favor of some printed-on-demand slogan swag.

After all, what would Machiavelli wear?
This is a counterintuitive view.

Conventional wisdom is the Kentucky Republican bungled things really badly this week, delivering an enormous public relations gift to the Democratic Party and one of its most prominent voices by having the Senate kick Elizabeth Warren out of the debate on confirming Jeff Sessions as attorney general.

[Warren Blocked From Speaking During Sessions Confirmation Debate]

This view was buttressed by McConnell’s mansplaining tone — “She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted” — that spawned a thousand T-shirts and threatens to magnify a gender gap rooted in the view of GOP leaders as inherently sexist and out of touch with women voters.

INVESTIGATIONS Cenk Uygur Exposes James O'Keefe

He's a Walking, Living Troll'
The "Young Turks" host weighs in on Project Veritas' big scheme to humiliate the media.


The news was not lost on "The Young Turks" host Cenk Uygur.

"How sad that the president of the United States of America is calling these low-level trolls," Uygur remarked. "But that's because they are part of the Republican machine... they killed ACORN... a group that helped poor people with legal issues, health issues, and yes, voting issues, and that's why they were politically targeted—to make sure that they didn't get poor people to vote because Republicans think [the poor] vote more for Democrats. And the media went along with it, gave it tremendous coverage. Some Democrats [even] went along with it, and [Project Veritas] actually had a real political effect. Now they've got the ear of the president!"

Footage captured by TYT shows O'Keefe announcing his plans to "humiliate" the media, with hundreds of hours of newsroom audio allegedly in his possession.

"Now, I understand that it's ironic here, that we're giving you coverage of Project Veritas," Uygur acknowledged. "But that's because we have these exclusive tapes to show you their intention."

"Whatever you do, do not take these guys seriously," he pressed. "They're walking, living trolls... they never break real news, they always have a political agenda, and it doesn't have anything to do with actual facts."
