About Miners Checks

Small collectibles have the advantage of allowing for the collection to grow without taking a lot of space. One such collection is a miner's check collection. These small pieces of mining memorabilia, also known as miners' lamp checks, pit checks, or colliery checks, are similar to coins and were used for identification or tallying, mostly in coal mines but also in ore mines and other similar sites. Starting a collection of miner's check pieces does not require a large investment or any special space for storing. You can easily get a few pieces taking advantage of the various offers from eBay top-rated sellers, which may include free postage and packaging. As for any collectible, miners' lamp checks that are harder to find have more value than more common pieces. A little research before making a purchase would help you select the best deals.
