I have gone to this store on several occasions to sell coins from my dad's estate. The owner is very knowledgeable and fair - he offered me well above what anyone else would pay for silver dollars, eagles, etc. Not only that, but although he does not advertise buying scrap gold & silver he does and pays more than anyone around (I took the same bundle to several different dealers around the area and he offered the most). Some people have said he is not friendly, but everyone has a story and you just need to get to know him (and his dog Knox!) If you are looking for someone to kiss up to you, you can go somewhere else and pay for it, or you can get honest business and a good deal from a "regular" guy.
The owner has been only helpful to me. He knows his stuff, and maybe he expects you to do a little of your homework, but for good reason; the coin world is huge and many-faceted, and he knows a awfully lot about it. Is it asking so much for a beginner to read a little about it first and not waste the time of someone who is clearly at the other end of the game? I'm only responding to other posters here; never has the owner made me feel as though I was wasting his time. Then again, I've done the homework. Dallas Rare Coins is a one-of-a-kind place in a business with more dealers than you can count. You can learn a lot there, and you can pick up some fantastic coins at fair prices.
i was thrilled this place opened by my house! ive been wanting to sell some old gold for a while now, but have never felt comfortable going in to one of those shady pawn shop type places. and my mom would just die if she knew i stepped foot in one. well this local private office opened up and they are the 5 star gold recycling place I have been looking for! their prices were great and the place was so safe and very comfortable. i will be back with more!
