This Week In Our New York Store

By Andrew Bowers, Store Manager & Buyer

Author: Andrew Bowers / Wednesday, January 04, 2017 / Categories: This and That

As we have mentioned before, here in New York City we purchase coins from people all over the world. Most of these are in-person purchases from clients who bring them into our store. However we also have many people who do not live in New York or are unable to come to our location. These clients send their coins to us for purchase.

Pictured here is a group of items that was recently sent to us so that we could make an offer. The bad news is that several of the pieces were counterfeits; the good news is that the American silver dollars were not! Usually when we see miscellaneous groups of Asian and American silver dollar sized coins together there is a high probability that if one is fake they all are. However that was not the case in this instance. The seller suspected that there may have been some copies so it was not a complete shock to him. We were able to make him a nice offer, which he was happy to accept for the 1798 silver dollar and the 1876-CC trade dollar.

If you have items that you are looking to sell and are unable to visit us here in Manhattan, we invite you to call us so that we can help you arrange to send them to us for review.
