Auction Representation – One of the most popular services that we offer. Whether you are purchasing or liquidating you can benefit from our many years of experience.
If you decide that now is the time to sell your coins you will need advice as to which auction or auction house may serve your needs best. We have dealt with every major auction firm in the U.S. and have significant negotiating clout to maximize what you can realize for your coins, often you will receive more by consigning through RCNH than on your own.
If there is a particular coin coming up for auction that you need a professional opinion on or need to be represented in a confidential manner RCNH can provide this service for you often at a nominal charge. You will receive our years of experience to render an opinion that you can be assured you will be comfortable with.
Purchasing – While we are primarily a dealer of rare coins we will purchase your unwanted jewelry or gold, platinum or silver bullion. We will be happy to travel to you if your collection proves to be valuable enough. You only have to call our toll-free telephone number and make an appointment to put our decades of experience to work for you.
Appraisals – Our in-house appraisals are most often free of charge. If however you need an appraisal typed on our letterhead usually for estate purposes or to be presented in court then the charge is $50 per hour with a minimum charge of $50. The appraisal process is simple. Once you bring your coins to us we will sit with you and itemize the value of your collection. If you decide to sell to us then we will pay you the appraised price, if you choose to keep your coins then there is no charge except in the instance noted above.
Upgrade Program – As far as we know we are the only firm in the country that offers this service to anyone that calls us. Since third party grading is not perfect there are situations in which a coin may be resubmitted or sent to a competing service for regarding. We can look at your coins and determine which coins would be good candidates for this service so that you can maximize your coins value. Please call today so that you can discuss this option with one of our numismatists.
Submission services – Since we are members of all major grading services including the newly formed CAC service we can submit your coins for grading at any point. Once we receive your coins we will call and give an opinion as to which service and grading tier would be best to send your coins to. You will only be charged our cost plus additional shipping and handling charges.
Rare Coin and Bullion Sales – Whether you are looking for a$19 Indian cent or a $500,000 rare coin the professional numismatists at RCNH can help you. We often carry in excess of $500,000 in our vast inventory and would be happy to send you a scan of anything in our inventory or with proper references send a coin to you for approval. If you prefer to purchase bullion we sell gold at 1% and silver at 2% over our cost plus shipping.
Expert Witness Services – Because of our knowledge and experience at times we will testify for various law enforcement agencies. If you should need an expert to testify for you one of our numismatists will be happy to discuss you particular situation with you in confidence.
Ebay Service – If you are technologically challenged or just don’t have the time and wish to sell you coins through Ebay then we can help. Many clients opt to liquidate their coins in this manner and we will be happy to give our opinion as to whether your coins would benefit from this option. We routinely sell coins through Ebay and have the latest photography equipment to put your coin in the best positive light. We also have the experience to correctly describe you coin and put it in the best possible light as to generate a great amount of interest among potential bidders. We charge a nominal fee for this service but this is often a good choice for coins that may not make the cut for a mainstream auction house.
Want lists – Many dealers offer want list services but don’t actually service them beyond one or two coin shows. At RCNH we don’t give lip service, we actually keep your want list active until you tell us your needs have changed. A word of caution! Do not give us your want list if you are in a hurry to complete a set or series of coins. Any true professional numismatist will tell you that truly honestly graded coins are hard to find. That is why we advocate to buy the coin and not the holder. If you are looking to plug holes in your series of collecting interest then we are not the dealer for you but if want coins that you will be proud to own then please call us. We will only sell coins that we want to buy back at a future date.
