Use a razor blade or X-acto knife and work it into and around the seam taking your time so you don't crack the capsule or cut yourself.

Just use a dull knife or strap some bombs to it.

Razor blade or exacto are very thin and more difficult than just a regular knife, IMHO

The coin can take it. \(shrug\)


I am a comic collector, I don't know what a capsule is anyway.

They are easy to open, once you do one and see how they are made.
