He lives in Kelowna BC. and he does not know anything about coins and wanted to take them to a dealer for one price. Where should he take them as he is coming down to NS. next week and I can pass on the information.
something is a bit odd with your post and needs a better explanation. WHO is he? and why would someone transport a collection to NS when there are some dealers right in your backyard? Most dealers are going to lowball "him" anyway. so it does really not matter where "he" goes. Doctorman, you yourself seem to be not exactly unexperienced
Pacific just for common interest and a your, reputable dealers input toward this issue: would you offer a firm appraisal, spending time etc without charging a fee? "he could simply say Thank you Sir, but I will go somewhere else... H
I would absolutely do an appraisal with a fee for doing it . I would also encourage a person with an extensive and valuable collection to get a second opinion. When we buy said collections , any appraisal fee is totally refunded . Been in business far too long . Hate seeing people get beat up on Collections by unscrupulous buyers .
No he is coming down for a visit and I will get more information as to dates ect but I was just telling a friend of his that if he does not take the coins to the right person he might not get what they are worth.
