OK, I just want to make sure I have the true meaning of a Re-milled coin. When a coin, or shell is Re-milled, is the Re-milling supposed to make the grip better for handling? Or is the Re-milling just to give the edges of a coin a grooved look, and there are no real advantages to gripping a Re-milled coin. I have a Re-milled coin set, but if you had your eyes closed it feels smooth as a nickels edge, but has a groove look to it. I have the option to return it for another set, but I wasn't sure if I would just get the same scenario with another set.

To replace, or not replace, that is the question.

Re-milling does give a coin a grooved look. In many cases, the re-milling also allows for a better grip on the sharper edges. However, perhaps due to the nature of the coin being re-milled, sometimes the coin still feels smooth as you mentioned. Coins that are re-milled are usually pretty well worn. And, because not all coins wear equally, there are differences in how the re-milling affects them.

If you let the coin maker know what you're looking for, it may help. They may know from experience how to get the effect you want.
