First, we would suggest doing some research. Educate yourself, at least a little bit about what you have. You can do an internet search with a search engine like Google for example, that will allow you to find items similar to what you may have, based on image searches or exact text matches. For example a 1932 D quarter can bring up images as well as some detailed written information like how many were minted and what metal content they have. There are also coin reference books such as The Red Book or Blue Book that can provide similar information. Keep in mind that a seller’s asking price does not necessarily reflect the value of an item. A seller is always looking to make a profit and that will be reflected in their selling price. With that said, don’t be afraid to shop it around after your research. Get an idea of what more than one dealer like ourselves, are willing to pay you for your item(s). There are multiple factors that can go into a final value (buying) price. Give us a call and / or come on in, we’d be happy to help you.
