You've just inherited your
Grandpas Coin Collection
The 1st thing you need to decide is do I keep it or sell it? If you have an interest in coins it's a no brainer. If not you have some decisions to make. If you decide to sell it there are a few things you need to know. If the collection given to you has been collected over a number of years there's likely to be some value especially if many of the coins are silver or gold.
Step 1) So step one is fairly easy. Sort by metals
content. Gold, Silver, Copper ETC.
If you're not sure of the content you can
buy a RED book. (Click Here to order Red Book)
Step 2) Look for key date coins. Keep in mind just
because a coin is old doesn't make it
valuable. What really makes a coin
valuable is its rarity, condition & demand.
So to make it easy we've made a list of
the key date coins. (Click Here)
Step 3) Sort your wheat cents.
So why take the time to look though a big collection in search of a few rare coins?
~ 1st- It will help maximize your results when you
go to sell. Dealers like us will pay a little more if
it's presorted especially wheat cents. This
makes it easier to appraise & takes less time.
~ 2nd- With lines big and people waiting it's easy to over look something, especially if you have bags of wheat cents.
~ 3rd- Less likely you'll be taken advantage of from a less reputable dealer.
