Hi, I hope this is the right place for this question.

I found two coins I like on Vcoins, they would be coming from Dubai to the US. How will this be different from ordering a coin locally? Will there be extra fees once the coins get here? Papers to fill out? This is all new to me.

Thanks for any help.

Never heard of Vcoins, let alone dealt with them, but from having some experience with overseas eBay items, all I can say is this:
If their shipping is any like eBay's is, you're in for a loooong haul of waiting. I bought a coin located in Singapore, took almost 2 months to arrive.

Dubai rings warning bells BIG time. Be very careful of the counterfeit trade. I suggest posting the sellers pix here to let experts tell if the coins you're interested are genuine or not. Even legit dealers/distributors are getting fooled.. Caveat Emptor!

Here are the leptons I was looking at. Do they seem real? Thanks for the help. Also, are there any other concerns buying from overseas from Vcoins? Do they guarantee their seller's coins to be what I paid for? I heard about Vcoins on this site and thought they were supposed to have a good reputation. :)

Seller: "We don't sell tooled coins, some of our coins are cleaned and some sand was added to the surface. If you don't like the sand , you can remove it was water easily."

That said, they take PayPal.
