Your Safety is Our #1 Concern in the Era of Covid-19

When you schedule a meeting to appraise or sell your coin collection, we take the issue of safety very seriously. We meet in a boardroom (see the photo above) with a huge conference table, to maintain a minimum of 6 feet of separation at all times. During the entire time, owner & appraiser Dave Wnuck wears a mask and gloves. We will provide you with masks and gloves if you need them. Washroom facilities are close at hand.

Important Note!

Do not clean your coins in any way. Do not wipe them, wash them, dip them in a chemical, brush them, etc. You cannot make them more valuable by doing so, but you can certainly hurt their value quite a bit. Coin collectors prefer their coins tarnished & “dirty”.
