I wish I had went with my gut instinct after reading the bad reviews on this place. But, I decided to give them a try anyway. My fiance and I visited this shop yesterday afternoon to have them look over some old silver coins that we brought in. From the moment we walked through their door, we were made to feel unwelcome, treatly extremely rudely and insulted.
The man that "helped" us at the counter took a very brief look (and I mean very brief as in I don't care how long you've been doing this because there's no way that you actually looked at those coins well enough to even know what you're even looking at) at the four small bags of coins we had, picked up the calculator and barked out $211. When I asked him how much that was per coin and for which ones, he literally yelled "Are you selling this or not? I'm not going to waste my time looking at them if you're not!". Then another man, even more arrogant than the first one, from behind the counter stepped up and asked us if we had anyone else look at them. We told him that yes, we had been to one other place to get an estimate. Then he asked how much they offered. My fiance told him and the man starts yelling that there's no way they offered us that, accusing my fiance of lying and making up the amount and then goes on to tell us that he's been doing this for 35 years and that the other shop doesn't know what they're talking about if it were true that he was going to pay us that much for them.
At that point, it would not have made a difference to me if these people have been in the coin business for centuries and offered us five times more. With terrible customer service like that, I don't know how anyone would want to do any business there, period. We ended up going back to the first place that we went to for an estimate (Bartlett Coins & Collectibles on Stage Rd. - in case you're reading reviews and want somewhere to go where they treat you respectfully and offer you a fair price) and I have to say that there is a huge difference between $211 and $815. Buyers and sellers beware! Go anywhere but here!
