September 12, 2013

As promised in our August 22 newsletter, we are now posting Part 2 of our ANA new purchases.  

Our newps include another 1846 half dime, this one in PCGS VG-10.  Capped Bust dimes include an 1827 JR-3 in PCGS MS-64, an 1828 Large Date in PCGS AU-53, an 1829 JR-7 in PCGS MS-63, and an 1833 JR-8 in PCGS XF-45 CAC.  We also acquired a beautiful blue toned 1841 dime in PCGS MS-65 CAC, as well as a low-grade damaged, but affordable 1874-CC dime.  We acquired only one Seated quarter, but it's a really tough one - - 1872-S in NGC F-15.  Several Bust halves included a decent mid-grade 1802 and a gorgeously-toned 1830 in PCGS AU-53 CAC.  Several Seated halves in XF and AU were acquired, as well as an 1842 Seated dollar with 3 obverse cuds, plus two more 1862 Seated dollars.  We also acquired some slabbed Trade dollars. 
We want to congratulate Bill Bugert for being elected into the Rittenhouse Society, an honorary fraternity of numismatic writers and researchers!

Coin Dealer Etiquette - - Collector's Perspective
We have heard a lot of comments about last newsletter's article on Coin Show Etiquette - Collectors Selling Coins.  In fact, one of our client couples, Scott and Sue, offered to write an article on etiquette for dealers, from the collector's perspective.  I thought this was a great idea, so here are their thoughts:
  1. I know not to interrupt you when talking to another customer but greet me soon after I arrive at your table. Be polite don't ignore me and even if your last customer was frustrating don't be rude to me.
  2. Have someone at your table most of the time and make sure you have enough help at your table so I don't have to wait forever.
  3. Answer questions. Talk to me about the coin(s) I am interested in. Honestly describe any problem a coin might have.
  4. I prefer to see prices on coins you are trying to sell. When I go to a restaurant, lobster is marked "market price". I understand that, but I won't eat at a restaurant that doesn't have any prices on its menu. Help me understand why prices are what they are, especially for coins priced a lot higher than price guides so that I don't waste my time on coins that are too expensive for me.
  5. Don't throw coins at me. I might not be ready to catch them. If I do ask to see a coin I am interested in please stop flipping through other boxes of material and talk to me about the coin.
  6. Be gentle when criticizing my coins. If you don't want to buy the coins I am trying to sell, possibly suggest someone else who might be interested.
  7. Please don't display a large number of coins that are not for sale. But one, two, or a small group is OK, if they are really cool.
  8. I understand you might have to eat at the table, but please don't eat onions, garlic or something else that will cause bad breath.

Remember that I am not just a possible customer today, but may buy from your website or your ads, buy at a future show, call and talk to you, or recommend you to another collector or dealer. In the end, I as a customer want to feel that I have made the right decision when dealing with you. It's the personal interaction along with the quality of the experience, service and price that brings me back or causes me to create that lasting relationship with a dealer.

Remembering the Past / Looking Toward The Future
I am saddened to report that my Mother passed away on Labor Day.  She and my Dad (who passed away in 2002) got me started collecting coins when I was 4 years old.  They nurtured me in this hobby more than I could expect any parents to.  I learned a lot from both of them and will miss them dearly.  
My next show is a local show in Lancaster, PA on Saturday, September 14, followed closely by the Whitman Philadelphia show Thursday, September 19 to Saturday, September 21.  I will be at my table for most of the show.  If you go to either or both shows, please stop by and say hello!
