Shopping for a Display Case

When I married my husband, the two of us went on several shopping trips. During these shopping excursions, we looked for beautiful pieces of furniture to fill our new home with. At one store, I was drawn to a lovely oak, curio cabinet. After spotting this item of furniture, I instantly knew I wanted to display my extensive doll collection in it. Do you have a large collection of dolls, model cars, model trains, or snow globes you want to proudly display? Consider shopping for the perfect, stylish piece of furniture to put your beloved things in. On this blog, I hope you will discover smart tips to help you shop for the display case of your dreams.

3 Options For Selling Your Silver Coins

by Eli Schmidt

If you have a collection of silver coins that you are finally ready to sell, you may be unsure of the best way to get the most for your coins. Here is a comparison of three options for selling silver coins to help you choose the right one to suit your needs.

Coin Shops

If there is a local coin shop in your area, this may be the most convenient and most profitable method for selling your collection of silver coins. You will be able to negotiate a price face-to-face with the dealer, and you will also be able to walk out the same day with cash in hand.

When selling your silver at a local coin shop, it is important to remember that the dealer will be looking to turn a profit. While arming yourself with the latest spot price for silver and researching the unique numismatic value of your coins can help you get the best possible price, you should expect to sell your coins at less than their total value.

Coin Expos

If you have a large coin collection that you are looking to sell, a coin show is an excellent way to get the best price for your entire collection. Coin expos will have several professional appraisers in attendance so you can get multiple opinions on the value of your collection.

When you attend a coin expo, you will have the opportunity to meet and possibly sell to other collectors who share your interest. This means that there is a potential for you to sell your collection at a better price than you would be able to receive from a coin dealer who is simply looking to resell your silver.

The only major downside to selling at coin expos is that they happen periodically. If you do not sell all of the coins you are looking to sell at a single expo, you may have to wait weeks or months to attend the next one, or turn to alternative methods of selling your collection.

Online Auctions

Online auctions are often the best way to get the top price for each coin in your collection. As with coin expos, you will be able to sell your coins to other collectors. However, when you sell your coins through an online auction you will be selling to the highest bidder among collectors who have searched specifically for the coins that you have for sale. As long as you are willing to sell your coins individually over time, online auctions are an excellent option for any collector.

Every option for selling silver coins offers different levels of convenience and potential profit. Finding the right balance of these factors will help you choose the selling option that is perfect for you.
