A Dirt Cheap Paper Clip Coin Stand

Illinois Sesquicentennial on a Paper ClipIntroducing the Dirt Cheap Paper Clip Coin Stand. There are certainly more attractive and stable coin stands on the market, but that wasn't my goal. I wanted to make my own cheap yet functional coin stand. The beauty of this stand is it requires one paper clip and no tools. It also seems to work well for a quick coin photography setup.

I don't know what a standard paper clip is made of so I can't say whether or not long-term contact between the coin and the clip will hurt the coin. Feel free to suggest improvements or show off your own dirt cheap coin holder solutions. Cheers, Mark
