I purchased silver eagle coins and needed plastic cases to store them in. I went out of my way to this hole in the wall store. I waited to be buzzed in. Upon entering, not a word was said. No hello! Nothing. I offered a sharp loud "hello", and nobody replied. I wanted to run out! I walked over to the man at the desk and broke in with "got any silver eagles?". Nope.
Well ok, do you sell airtite cases for eagles? Yeah, I got cases. He gets up and walks to a display, how many you need, $1.20 each. This was said with the attitude of "you bother me".
I need 10. He grabs a box of different cases and says these are only $7.50. I asked if they were safe for eagles. Yep, safe. Ok, I'll take it. I arrive home and find my eagles are 40.6mm. These cases are 40mm. Why wouldn't a seasoned coin shop owner know what size case to sell.
I found this shop to be a shoestring, piece part attempt at a real coin shop. No wonder I never heard of it before. Stay home. Save your time. This guy is not serious about his shop.
I do not recommend anyone to go there. The service was horrible. The man working there was extremely rude and tossed my items carelessly. He is not professional in anyway.
GET THE MOST MONEY $$$$$ FOR COINS! – I took about $20 face value of silver coins to another coin shop on Armenia Ave and was offered about 70% of actual value. I decided to get a second quote and went to Village Stamp & Coin on Fletcher Ave and was offered about 92% of value!!! I will NEVER go anywhere else to sell my coins! These guys are straight shooters! When it came time for me to buy some coins for my collection, they gave a SUPER PRICE on gold coins at slightly over scrap! Thank you!
