Question
Any tips on how to find a good coin dealer in the upstate of South Carolina?

Answer
It really depends on what you are looking to sell.  If you just have a couple circulated silver coins that are common then there are any number of shops that could probably help you.  

If you have collectible coins that are considered rare and or have a gold content then I would advise checking out Greenville Coin Shop.  They work with the major coin grading services, so you could get your coin authenticated.  They also run regular coin and currency auctions.

Expertise

I can answer any question relating to valuing US Currency. My specialty is national currency, large-size currency, and small size issues between 1928 and 1957. Many bank notes have variables that can make two seemingly identical notes have very different values. That is why it is so important to work with an expert. I also work with rare Canadian banknotes as well as some foreign currency (mostly British Commonwealth countries). I have participated either as a buyer or seller in more than 500 different coin auctions.

Experience

I have been a full time currency dealer since 2006. I set up at about ten national coin and currency shows per year all across the country. My company has a retail location in Greenville, SC. I also run a website about old money values. I am also currently the director of currency auctions at Stacks Bowers. So I am in a unique position to see, value, and sell millions of dollars worth of paper money on a annual basis. I have been lucky enough to sell hundreds of individual banknotes worth over $10,000. I personally hold several world records for highest price paid for certain categories of banknotes. While I personally don't deal a tremendous amount of coins, I can provide sound advice on where to sell coins in NYC, and other major metro areas across the country. I have seen the worst of the worst and the best of the best when it comes to coin dealers. If you don't want to publicly ask a question then you can always view our coin value guide at Coins.com.
