A loved one has passed, and you must deal with the succession. Among the estate assets is a collection of coins. You know nothing about it, you have no idea how valuable it may be, and you do not know who to talk to. You would like to contact an “expert” BUT a doubt surfaces: Will I get a fair price, or will I be fooled? How and to whom can I go to be well informed?
THIS GUIDE presents a simple method, which is easy to follow, even for those who have no knowledge in the field and will allow you to familiarize yourself with the content of the collection, and to save tens (or even hundreds) of dollars. Before using a currency professional to do the inventory and valuation, make sure the costs incurred do not exceed the value of the collection.
Once these first steps are completed, the rest will be much easier, and you will feel more confident when contacting potential buyers.
