Paying Cash for Coin Collections$$$ (Jacksonville)

I want to purchase your entire collection. I buy Mint sets, Proof sets, Commemoratives, gold and silver coins. Old nickels and pennies. Paper money. Foreign coins. I have an i-pad with cellular data. I have a grading book and price book. I can show you how to find what your coins are selling for online. No collection would be too large. I'm been collecting for nearly 50 years. Paying top dollar.

Re: To the person that said that I only want to cherry pick your collection is angry because I did not want to buy his coins. I asked him to send me a picture and he said that he could not. He only lived 10 minutes away, so I drove to his house. He had around $4 to $5 face value of wheat pennies, 3 proof sets without boxes, several mint sets with half missing and no envelopes. He had a box full of medals made of pewter and bronze without boxes that never sell on e-bay with boxes. He had gold plated state quarters and five 40% silver Ike dollars with only one in the original mint packaging. One 40% silver Bicentennial quarter and a Canadian mint set without the envelope. Presidential dollars and miscellaneous coins that were only worth face value. Since I drove there I decided to make a offer on his 40% silver coins. If you have ever advertised to buy items on Craigslist, you know that some people believe that their items are worth a fortune. Please call your favorite Coin shop and ask them what they pay for gold plated state quarters and non-silver proof sets with no box. If he had sent me a picture, I would of said no by looking at the picture. After I showed him the 2020 book values of his sets without boxes and envelopes, he said he was going to take pictures and put them on e-bay in small lots and sell them. I wondered to myself why he refused to send me a picture. While talking to him on the phone, I thought that maybe he did not know how to text a picture. After seeing his coins in person I understand why he would not. This is only collection that I looked in long time that I did not buy. I use completed listings on e-bay to show you what your coins are selling for online. If I tell you to spend most of them for face value, it means that it’s all they’re worth. I would not go online and show him that his circulated Presidential dollars are selling for when I know that no one is buying them. If your not sure what your coins are worth, I’m always willing to talk on the phone to educate anyone on how to look up the value online. I’ve been collecting for over 50 years. Happy Coin collecting!
