Hello Members:

I live in SE Los Angeles County. I have the unenviable task of completing a tolerably decent sale of my uncle's coin and paper money collection. I have already constructed lists of the major groupings (U.S.coins, Canadian coins, other foreign coins, foreign paper money),
including grading and "values". These are in PDF format.

I need someone who is willing to take the time to review these lists, and, if he or she is interested, to examine the coins/currency in person. They may make me an offer, or, refer me to other person/persons.

There are small U.S. denominations (1857-1960s), small Canadian denominations (1920s-1950s), U.S. "uncirculated" and "proof" sets (1950s-1980s), Canadian uncirculated sets (1960s-1970s), European coins (1855-1960s, mostly 1930s-1950s), European paper money [e.g., Belgian, British, French, German] (1910s-1940s), other world coins [from Angola to Yugoslavia] (1910s-1960s), and, other world paper money [inc. 1944 French 50 Francs, and, 1956 Lebanon 5 Livres] (1900s-1950s).

to the CCF

I suggest that a starting point, go to a few coin dealers and find out what they are prepared to offer. Note everything they say, but DO NOT sell anything yet. Then report back to us and we could help you more.

How many items do you have in the list? If the list is not that long, you might post it here.

I don't know why so many people don't trust LCS dealers? "Oriole" gave you some good advice. Even if you were to take some coins (& banknotes) to your Local Coin Shop (LCS) you would get (at the very least) a good starting point. What do you have to lose if you sold some to them? Perhaps about %10 - %20 but keep in mind that will take away some of the burden you will have in selling them (putting them up on eBay or almost any auction site COSTS the SELLER money/Sellers fees). Most collectors won't pay you Book Value (BV) b/c most collectors know this. BVtoo is a starting point. For some of the rarer (& higher grade) items BV could be low while for some of the more common (lower grade) items the BV could be high. If you take 'Oriole's' advice you could also turn your recorder on your phone & record what the dealer has to offer & tell them you'll think about it. So essentially the visit would cost you nothing.

I just tried to swap some banknotes with a veteran coin collector (from another site) & sent all of them back. He had them listed as "UNC" and I think one was EF at best so learning to grade can be quite the learning curve. I have seen your list & I don't understand it. Check out the sticky
http://goccf.com/t/167629 re: how to dispose of a collection for excellent advice.

I posted some advice on my 1 y.o. website & a collector from Youtube replied with a rant re: the "scammers from eBay." The only trouble I have had from eBay is a few listings over graded & a few BIN sellers misidentifying the odd banknote. If you have access to eBay (or another online platform) you could post your inheritance item-by-item & that would likely get you closer to true market value (but it will cost you). It will take the most time but if you know how to photograph/scan the coins/notes, that would be the best bang for your buck.

-Honestly, your timing couldn't be better. I thought that the pandemic would be a negative blow to coin/currency collectors hobby but people have had more time on their hands. Memberships on these forums seems to keep growing & I've seen the banknote market remain quite brisk.

Before you go, why not research a the nicer pieces left to you so you know a bit about what you have. Write it down. The reason I suggested you record the dealer's offers is b/c typically its a lot to digest (& easy to forget or mix up later). Good luck (& to CCF/ keep us posted)
