Im sure we have been over this one...


if I want to sell I figure right here on CCF would be my best bet?
im getting sick of ebay, with all the fees. I think I can find some deals, but most people include the ebay/paypal fees into the cost of the coins...


as far as purchasing, what would give me the best deals for example, getting silver close to or at spot, or certified coins at FMV...?

thanks!

The only coins that I have ever sold were bought here by some of our members. I was satisfied with those transactions. Why not give it a shot?

For good deals on buying certified coins, I turn first to the auctions where it is often is possible to purchase for well under retail and sometimes even below wholesale. I like Heritage, personally. David Lawrence, Stacks Bowers, Great Collections, and for very well financed, Legend. All are well regarded.

It depends on what you're buying. eBay will have pretty much everything, but fees force sellers to be a little high on the prices. Haritage is also good if you're looking fo slabbed coins. Even if you aren't planning to buy anything, you should make a Haritage account. It's free, and it allows you to see the sale price of every coin they have sold over the past decade.

There's no one answer to this. For buying it depends what you're looking for. Moderns, classic, world, world moderns, ancients etc can all have different answers, but like it or not unless you're talking about high end coins eBay is still going to be the biggest source in most cases. That said as a buyer you're only hurting yourself if you don't check all available sources

As far as selling again it will depend on what it is. Different things do better on different venues and in some cases you can leave a lot on the table using a venue who just doesn't have the buyers for that material. You also have to consider that the auction houses will have higher fees as well unless you have a very substantial consignment where you can negotiate those fees away.

Just remember that with those prices it's not the all in price as buyers have to pay shipping and handling from the auction houses whereas with eBay you basically have to offer free shipping which we all know isn't really free.
