Buying coins

#1 Unread post by Coins2Bsure »

I don’t have any coin shops near me so I either have to shop online or through a coin dealer. My question is, should I refer to a price guide, mint state, PCGS,NGC, or any others when trying to determine a fair value for my purchases. The coins I have recently purchased are either very close to or spot on grade when I review them against the photo grading services.

Yeah what he said, if you click on the date of the coin it will show you this, and you get all the details you need. This is pricing only, and be careful, there are a lot of scammers out there, I have been burned by coins soaked in olive oil, and recently Daniel has purchased some rolls of "UNC" Morgans, that turned out to be cleaned, so be smart in whom you are purchasing from.
