Any Coin Collectors on CP?

Ok...here's the deal....

We have an old coin collection that we inherited. We aren't really that into coins or stamps or whatever so we thought we would find out what the coins are worth.

I know there are a few shops here in KC that will do an appraisal for us, but before i selected one, i thought i would check with the CP braintrust and see if anyone has a shop/dealer/buyer that they might recommend?

It is worth noting that i haven't really looked through exactly what there is in detail, but there is a ton of coinage...some of which looks pretty old.

Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.

Try 23rd street pawn in Independence. 816-716-7291- The owner is a great guy, very fair and is a lifetime coin collector. You will make more selling the whole collection to them then trying to piecemeal it out on ebay-they charge a fortune in fees.

Anything after 1964 is not silver and only worth face value. Unless it is a proof set-then you get a slight premium.

Foreign coins and your average coins not in top condition will probably only net you gold or sliver prices. If you have graded coins- you can check the values of those online at several sites- and might think about pulling them out and selling per coin. Good luck!

I'm down with the numismatics.

I wouldn't get an "appraisal" from anyone who might buy from you.
And no pawn shops.

In general, what do you have--years and denomination?

Condition is a huge part of the value, unless you have something that is rare.

I would be shocked if that guy offered more than EBAY would pay you, even if you account for the fees...

but hey maybe KC pawn shops are better than the kind we have around these parts

If you want to invest $10-$15 there's a reference book called The Red Book.

You can look up pretty much any US coin and it gives you an idea of value.
However, those prices are what a dealer would charge, so they obviously are going to pay you less--but you can kind of get a ballpark.

Guess i don't know much, 'cause i don't even know what "numismatic" meant (i had to look it up).

Like i said...i haven't really looked in detail yet, but i will do that ASAP and then post more info.
