Rare Coin and Stamp Services

working with estates and collectors since 1971

Author's Spotlight: Rick




For 41 years as a professional numismatist (Life Member #3928 of the American Numismatic Association) and philatelist (Member #217438 of the American Philatelic Society) - I have assisted collectors, estates, and non-collectors buying and selling numerous coin and stamp rarities and liquidating countless large collections. I have attended hundreds of national coin and stamp conventions over the years; gaining valuable experience and making many personal contacts in the sometimes volatile coin and stamp markets. These markets can be treacherous and costly to non-collectors wishing to sell their valuable collections. Far too often, collections sell for a small fraction of their actual worth because the collectibles were not appraised accurately prior to the sale. Simply "shopping" a collection around from dealer to dealer is unlikely to result in the best offers. You can sell your valuable collectibles for the best prices, however, when you receive my accurate appraisal, low-cost brokerage service, and decades of experience. On the other hand, if you are an active collector or investor, you can acquire high quality items at my wholesale cost plus a small commission fee.
