We offer appraisals of your collection for banks, insurance, and estate purposes. All of our appraisals are done by the owner Kevin Josephson. He has many years of collecting and coin dealing experience. He is a member of many trade organizations and well respected in the industry. All appraisals come with an itemized list of all of your items, then presented and categorized as Kevin sees fit unless otherwise agreed upon.
In addition to the appraisals, we can also offer assistance and advice in sorting, processing and storing your collection or investments. With this, we can provide the necessary supplies to keep your collection organized.

Please call ahead of time for either in shop or on site appraisals. Our schedule is tight many weeks, and we may have to book out a few weeks in advance. This allows us the opprotunity to insure we have the proper time and staff available to handle everything as needed. Please allow yourself ample time to be present for the appraisal as well.
As part of our evaluation process, we also offer coin grading. This is generally just done by Kevin. On occasion if Kevin feels that a coin is worthy of a Third-Party opinion we will offer to send the coins off for third party grading for you. They will be sent to a Tier-One grading service for a fee of the actual grading cost, S/H, insurance and a $10 fee per coin. For large quantities of coins, a custom rate may be assessed.
As always for more info please do not hesitate to call, email, or stop by the shop.
