It’s Time to Sell my Collection... Now What???

It’s ALL about the commission, right? WRONG!


Keys to Success:

Trustworthy representation: Why, you ask? Who better to navigate the mine field of liquidation than a professional who has worked for one of the largest and well known auction firms in the country as well as spending 25 years as the Senior Numismatist of one of the oldest coin shops and first class retail establishments in the nation? There is a lot of be said for EXPERIENCE. I have seen the inner workings of an auction house and have been the head buyer for a major retailer for many years. I know the WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN and HOW answers to the questions regarding the sale of your coins. I know how to obtain the highest possible prices for YOU.
One Size Does NOT Fit All: There may be several ways to sell your collection and obtain the highest price for each coin. This is where my market knowledge, and relationship with collectors and dealers comes into play. To sell coins successfully, you need to know the “players”. Does that mean selling at auction, to want list clients, or consigning to a retail website and ebay store? YES TO ALL. I will review the collection and make recommendations as to the best avenue for each coin. You will be a part of this decision-making process.
Examples of deals I have brokered: I helped assist the owner of an amazing collection of Buffalo Nickels; Barber and Standing Liberty quarters and other rarties, sell his coins at auction in multiple sales; I facilitated the sale, on consignment, of an incredible collection of Gem PCGS Mercury Dimes, Walking Liberty Halves and Proof Gold for a collector; additionally, I helped a well-known collector sell his Everyman Registry, PCGS graded Barber Half Dollar collection at the height of the market for the series, netting him fantastic results. I can go on, but you get the idea.
Knowledge: It can’t be bought, it is obtained through years of hard work. Wouldn’t you want me to protect your interests and work hard on your behalf for the best possible outcome? I will negotiate your contract for you, if your coins are sold at auction. We all like to think we are pretty savvy when it comes to handling our affairs, but there is a reason why there are professionals in every industry,
Trade Secrets: I don’t want to give away all of my strategy in this email, so if you are looking to sell, please call 508-513-8383 or email me with what you have. We can discuss your coins and set a course to achieve the best possible results for you. I look forward to hearing from you.
