Here's some USEFUL INFORMATION to help you
Get Started Coin Collecting
Find a reputable source for your coins. How long has the coin company been in business? Does it guarantee the accuracy of its grading and offer a money-back guarantee? Is there a wide selection and competitive prices? Are you offered personalized service, fast delivery, reasonable shipping prices and special searches?
Look for solid research from a coin company. Does a web site just list dates, mints, grades and price? Or does it also give you interesting history and details about the coins offered and special recommendations based on its staff's expertise? Do you learn why one mintmark or grade can be a better choice than another for a particular coin date? Does the web site help educate you about the fascinating hobby of coin collecting?
