I think there are eBay dealers who set their BIN/BO prices unrealistically high expecting to negotiate them downward 20% or more, and there are others who set them close to the true market value, and will entertain offers in the 5-10% below BIN range.

Probably numiscorner is the latter.

With how many marketplaces they list in, I think they have some confidence in their e-commerce marketing abilities to get the price they want. Considering how long they have been holding firmish in their highish pricing, I think they found a formula that's meeting their revenue and margins goals.

I wonder if the BIN is used on their end moreso to gauge demand on a listing and less to actually do the dance with a buyer unless no one is making offers over an certain period of time. So for them, BIN is not a tool for buyers get a deal but to justify the highest price they thing they can get eventually. Also, buy using it, a buyer might also be giving them reason to say no it there happen to be a few others who also submitted an offer.

I decided to try them out and order a French 20 Francs gold coin from them. Shipping included.
Arrived after about 3 weeks and was as described. I wouldn't hesitate to order from them again.

Ed...I completely agree with you, when I initially started collecting ancient coins this company were very helpful, their coins are always as described, photos are pretty good in relation to 'inhand' comparison...And yes their prices are at the top end without much flexibility but, at least for me, customer service was excellent.
At the end of the day each individual hand made ancient coin is unique!...If it appeals to the buyer, but it! As there isn't another the same!
Just my opinion.....Paul

With hundreds of thousands of listings on both eBay and VCoins, they are more interested in accumulating than selling imo.
