Coin Collections or Special Coins
Coin collections, sometimes known as “The Hobby of Kings,” are items that we very often manage for our clients.
Why Hire Us?
When a coin collection is part of an estate we typically sell it outside of the estate sale as it requires special handling. After we complete the cataloging and inventory the collection is valued. Once a value is determined our special services begin. Our senior management markets the collection (just as we would fine jewelry, fine art, classic cars, and other high value items) to our international contacts for global exposure, as well as our local contacts, to insure the best return is received.
Anyone with a coin collection is encouraged to contact us for a free consultation. We can handle a collection of any size or just a few special pieces.
Let us know how we can best serve you.
We have buyers for all types of coins
Some of the types of coin collections we commonly see are:
Morgan Silver Dollars
Kennedy Half Dollars
Security, Licensed and Bonded
No one should ever hire anyone who is not licenced and bonded and who does not hold adequate liability insurance. Furthermore, even though a limit of liability document is provided, you should still contact the insurance company to confirm the policy is still valid. It is possible that a firm would provide the documentation to secure a job, then cancel the policy to save on the premiums.
Additionally, no one should allow an estate sale to occur on their property without security. This will help in ‘shrinkage’ as well as any incident that could occur. Opening your home to the public only should be done by professionals with experience.
High value items should be sold outside of the estate sale, and often an estate sales is not the best or only option.
Call us for a free consultation. We would be happy to provide you with all the information you need to make the best decision for you. We will advise you honestly even if it does not favor using the services of our company.
