Hello Jeremy,

This is in response to you feedback from my answer.  I can understand you not liking my response, if I were in your shoes, I wouldn't like it either.  There are different schools of thought here.  Some people will pay nothing if they can to get a "score", other people pay a fair price and earn a fair profit. I have been in the rare coin/precious metals industry for 35 years, professionally.  I'm not rich, but I do sleep at night.  People who sell me coins, sell them because they need the money.  Knowing that they NEED the money make me want to pay them the best possible price.  It's all about KARMA.  Also, as a Rotarian, I know that what I do must benefit all involved and be fair.

Be fair and you will be successful and have a long career in your new venture.
