I agree with others that this guy, Joe, is not fair to many of the customers. I have seen him at Massachusetts shows where he tries to sell others problem coins claiming they are high grade when they aren't. And I have researched, it doesn't look like he is a member of any of the coin organizations like the ANA that many reputable dealers are members of. Why? He appears to be very wealthy and does not need to be ripping people off.Share Review

I can't understand the negative reviews. I have dealt with him for years and I am sensitive to prices, Joe does buy at higher prices and sells at low prices. Pretty much my go to guy.
He has a personality as does everyone. If you take the time to get to know him you would be pleasantly surprised. Realize that in a busy retail environment as he is in and the low profit margin he works with, he deals with a lot of people and does a lot of transactions. Sometimes it does get frustr...view moreating, and all need to be patient.
Everyone has their specific interest, his are his interests, if you do not align with him fine go elsewhere to do business. It is not necessary to slam him because his interests are not yours.
I have sold to others such as APMEX, but dealing with him is MUCH easier.
He is above board, and I am looking to do my next transaction with him this weekend.
Only real nit, he is hard to get on the phone, but that is the way he does business and I am OK with that.
Catch him at the coin shows, he is pretty much captive at his booth. There are slow times where he is there and you can just talk as much as you want with him.view less
The guy has poor character, I would prefer to do business with decent uplifting people than coin dealers who are just selfish and greedy all around....even if I have to travel further or ship what I need to sell. This one is rock bottom.Share Review
This is mainly a modern coin and bullion dealer. He may be fair when you are selling jewelry or precious metals and occasionally coins. When buying he occasionally has some good deals. Since he has the only game in town and surrounding towns it would be hard to know whether he is competitive. Frankly I would sell to the national dealers like Stacks, HA, Apmex, etc. rather than be at the mercy of these one person operations. And ditto on the uncertified coins, you will lose money bi...view moregtime!!! The guy plays by his own rules.view lessShare Review
This dealer is high in prices especially when he sells uncertified coins and is exceptionally critical when buying. The only coins or currency I would want to buy from him are things near the actual metal melt price as he doesn't know how to grade coins or currency properly. Plus he has a nasty regard for all the authorities and does not want to be accountable for his transactions. Sure, there are plenty of people who have benefited with doing transactions but far more who have be...view moreen ripped off without having any recourse. Avoid this person who rips people off.view lessShare Review
