If you live out of the area and want to ship items to me (or to someone else for that matter), you need to follow some basic tips to secure your package. I use the same techniques when clients purchase items from me.
I will gladly host coin and gold buying events for Banks, Non-Profit Groups, and Gold Parties. Many companies specialize in these types of events but neglect to give you specifics as to how they pay out. The last thing you want to do is host an event and have your customers (or donors or friends) get ripped off!
My specialty is buying old United States coins and currency. With my network of wholesale buyers (that don’t buy from the general public) as well as my network of retail dealers, private collectors and online selling, you can rest assured you will get the most for your items – whether a single silver dollar or a fifty pound box of assorted items, you have come to the right place.
No amount is too small or too large for me to deal with. I generally work by private and confidential appointment only in my home based office.
See About and Contact information for my detailed contact information and other instructions. You will also learn a little more about myself, my other lines of work, and how I became involved in numismatics.
I generally buy small and large collections from individuals and estates in the local area from the Quad Cities to Peoria, IL. I even make house calls for large collections, or for the elderly or disabled that can’t easily get around. If you do not live in commuting distance (farther than Chicago or St. Louis), you can still sell to Galesburg Coins.
With today’s superb shipping services, you just need some useful tips (see Insert on left) on how to get your items to me safely and securely.
I am willing to give free verbal estimates of your items, work off inventory sheets, as well as photos.
For invaluable general information about selling your coins or precious metals to me or anyone else, please see my Seller Beware page. This will help you from being “short changed” (no pun intended) when you go to sell your items ANYWHERE.
