Wexlers

#1 Unread post by ave13co » Wed May 15, 2019 8:52 pm

First week of April of this year I sent this viewtopic.php?f=70&t=13296 coin to Wexler for his opinion. I included the proper amount of dollars in cash for him to attribute and return the coin as per instructions on his website. It has now been almost 6 weeks since then. I have emailed 3 times but cannot get a response from him. Apparently the emails are getting to him as they are not being returned.

I have found his home, private landline phone number on the net but hesitate to call him at home until all other avenues have been followed up on.

So, here is my question, has anyone had any experience with him and what do you recommend?

He's back-logged, give him time.

Keep in mind, just like every service business, business comes in "waves".

Sometimes, we get "pounded", and so backed up, that spending time returning every email that we get while trying to attribute so many coins at one time, just slows us down even more.

:eureka:
FYI, as a trick here, take a look at the "coin show schedules" around the country ... And if you can schedule your submissions to fall between these dates,
"turnaround time" should be quicker.

Yeah. He writes his books and a column in coin world too. Will just have to hurry up and wait. Thanks for your reply.

My last submission was May of 2018 (a new 1928p DDO & 2017p DDR) and received the coins in Nov.
He is very busy with an increased volume. He apologized profusely and appreciates everyone's patience. He said some online videos created a tsunami of submissions that have not let up. He was hoping to have his site (doubleddies.com) updated by the beginning of April but I believe but that hasn't occurred yet. (Also I've heard he is experiencing some age related health issues that have complicated things.)
