Finding rare coins is exciting. You feel like you’ve opened up a brand new world of possibilities, and you can’t wait to find out how much your coins are worth. The next step, naturally, is to get your coins appraised by a professional. If you’ve never been to a session before, you should prepare by bearing these tips in mind. These steps ensure that your coins appraisal is successful. Nashua Coins is always happy to answer any questions you may have!
1.) Ensure the condition of the coin(s)
If an item gets damaged, there is no way that its value will remain intact or that it will increase over time. When they’re not getting evaluated, it’s best to ask professionals like ours for tips to ensure that they stay in the best condition possible. We’ll provide honest advice. It always works better than going DIY.
2.) Go to a professional
Don’t waste your time with people who don’t know the actual market value of any rare coins you have in your possession. You only want to go to people who know what they’re doing and can get you the most value for your products. Luckily, Nashua Coins & Collectibles has professionals on hand who know what they’re talking about and are happy to share that information. You’ll get the most out of your experience when you visit us.
3.) Think of questions you may have
Especially if you’ve never been to a coin shop before and are new to the world of coins appraisal, you probably have some questions about the process. Even if a problem seems to be inconsequential, you can gain plenty of information if you take the time to ask. We’re not here to judge. We’ll happily answer questions you have about the process so that you feel comfortable.
4.) Have realistic expectations
It’s tempting to buy into the myth that nearly all old antiques and coins are worth lots of money. Sure, there are highly valuable items that are just waiting to get appraised. However, not every old product will yield a fortune. We love giving people the good news about their coins. Still, it’s best to maintain realistic expectations, so you don’t feel too disappointed if your profit margin is low.
