Nice to get a nice review...

June 28, 2021 @ 11:26 AM

Nothing makes a dealer happier then reading a review from a client... here is a post that was on the PCGS message boards recently!

 

"So I went back to the show this morning and I walked away today with a new coin.

I want to thank Jon from Scarsdale coin (who posted in this thread above!) for being generous with his time, fair in negotiation, knowledgeable, and a general pleasure to talk to and deal with.

I saw a coin in his case yesterday that was not in my plan or budget, but he was nice enough to show it to me anyway and chat, and it was a friendly and professional interaction.

I did my homework on the coin last night, decided it was something worth pursuing for my collection, and this morning I went back to the show with ...

Where is the GOLD?

January 25, 2021 @ 10:35 AM

Monday morning and as I write this post, I want to comment that Gold (both bullion and better date coins) is disappearing....  Seems like people are moving their money into hard assets.

This is creating a huge supply vs demand shortage... we have seen the price of gold rise in the past few weeks, but more important we have seen the incredible rise in the added premium.  Gold is in short supply...  

To prove the point we posted over the weekend a group of proof gold coins which was sold over a dealer to dealer network within 12 seconds...and at a small local show with about 30 dealers... less than 10% had any gold coins to offer.    This is an amazing sight to see.

The takeaway is that you will certainly have...

Show Me The Monet

October 22, 2020 @ 3:53 PM

Making Coins Look Like A Bargain…

 

Banksy's take on a Claude Monet masterpiece has sold for £7.6 million ($9.8 million) following a nine-minute bidding battle, at a recent art auction.

 

In "Show me the Monet," famed street artist Banksy reimagines Monet's "Bridge over a Pond of Water Lilies" as a modern-day scene.

 

Show Me The Monet was created in 2005 and adds abandoned shopping trolleys and a traffic cone to the famous garden scene.

 

The painting is the second most expensive Banksy sold at auction, after the reclusive artist’s Devolved Parliament sold for £9.9m last year.

Coins, Bullion and The Stock Market...

February 28, 2020 @ 1:52 PM

A quick Friday post....It's been a wild ride on Wall Street this week -- all downhill. Stocks entered correction territory Thursday and are on track for the worst week since the 2008 financial crisis.

Our thoughts are that this stock market is like a balloon looking for a pin to POP. Is the coronavirus the pin?

Now you may also be wondering why the metals have been sliding down... seems strange... but as flippers looked for somewhere to move money to they took futures on the metals... however metals are not a quick rising profit taking venue... hence extreme pressure is now having a turn with metal prices...

Meanwhile perhaps the best investment for the long haul... good quality solid low mintage certifed coins... til next time!&...
