The man was beyond rude and arrogant. When we arrived there was no greeting. I told him I had coins to sell. He took the coins without a word and priced them. His prices were beyond low ball. When I pointed out that the two most valuable coins in my collection were almost equal to his offer he said, "Ok." Turned and walked off. No negotiations. No explaination.
The owner of this establishment is a douchebag beyond comprehension. No hello. I let him know I wanted to sell currency, he came to a different counter without a word and put out his hands, didn't talk throughout the entire process, gave me a price that was only $100 over all of the legal tender combined. When I asked him what he priced them individually to see what his reasoning was, his response was "It's a bulk deal, take it or leave it" I kindly told him he's a joke and to better his life because Karma will always work its way around.
RUDE! BE WARNED! – I read the reviews before going to the shop. Lots of negatives but I thought I would go and give the store a chance. Very close to home. The man did not say hello , I told him I have many coins to sell, part of an estate. I placed the bags iof coins on the counter. He tossed bags around and then pulled out silver dollars.(please know he still had not spoken!) He look and told me a price. I said are you interested in the other coins and he flatly told me he was pricing a FEW coins to find out if I was going to be a WAST OF TIME!
We had only just begun! Does he just HATE PEOPLE. I was taken back... I use city search all the time and from now on I will listen to the reviews. The owner is very very rude and I have no idea how he is even in business.
This guy can size any watch...and fast – I had two watches I puchased online and they were way too big. I got them both custom fitted while I waited. I'll be back with two others that need batteries..he does that too.
Expert coin guy...knows everything about paper money as well – Sorted out my coins for purchase and paid me more for the rarer pieces. No other pace in toen does this, believe me. Nice, patient, and knowlegable, even taught me about the more interesting ones. I feel I got the best deal.
Worst Place EVER. – Without question the rudest, unfriendliest, most unhelpful establishment I have ever been in. The owner/employee (bald, glasses) was dismissive and completely indifferent. Yes, a bad place for repair work, but even worse, a terrible example of a human being. Trust me on this.
Rude – I visited this business and was dismayed by the bad attitude and lack of respect the owner had for me. I chalked it up for a bad day.
About a month later I called him on the phone to inquire on a piece that is rather expensive (I had every intention to purchase). He was rude and short on the phone. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me! So I went and spent my money at Allens in Westerville! Every chance I have, I will tell everyone I know about this ingrateful rude @$$!
No service for me – I went to Arlington Coin and, after waiting about 10 minutes to be served, asked to look at Indian Head coins that he had in stock. He gave me a box of junk to look through. In the meantime, a friend came in,and he pulled out a nice collection of Indian head cents to show his friend. I felt discounted and insulted, and I will not be back. Attitude is a problem.
The highest prices in town – Paid the highest prices for my silver dollars and even paid me more for the rare one,a CC. Told me how to sort out the remaining coin I had back at the house. I'll be in on Friday !!!
Horrible Old Man on the phone – I called this morning and said "I have some old coins that I found at my mom's house". He said "I don't deal in World coins" and slammed the phone down. The thing is, I have old siver dollars and dimes that he claims to be looking for on his website. I am going to the guy in Grandview. I hope that we make a whole lot of money on these 100 or so 19th and early 20th certury coins.
