                       MY TWO CENTS

Coins like many collectibles go in cycles. What's popular or not or more importantly being hyped or not! I have been very busy with appraisals lately and most have included U.S. Mint/Proof sets that people were/are lead to believe are good investments...THEY ARE NOT! They ARE beautiful, made in the USA and a wonderful thought gift to commemorate a "year event", birthday, etc. but on 99% you will lose money versus what was paid. They are VERY common, with millions made and more offered regularly. 

A recent appraisal where I was asked to quote item by item, brought a shake of the head from the "ole' timer who had no idea of the current market. YET, when I bundled them as a unit, THEN the shakes became positive. these sets are really a bother to deal with, as dealers have plenty and few requests. So, not EVERY pot is gold!

See you on Thursday,
June 15, 2023 from 9:00am-2:00pm at the M.O.T. Senior Center. Please limit to 15 or fewer items, US or Foreign currency or jewelry. A $5.00 donation will go to the senior center. If you have MORE than 15 items and would like more than a 1/2 hour time slot, I will request an additional $5.00 per person ($10.00) for the hour. Please call the reception desk at 302-378-4758 to make an appointment.
