Fir tly, who i writing thi review? I am 68 year , experienced in bu ine matter , and with buying, elling and collecting gold and ilver coin . When I tarted to take thi hobby eriou ly, I contacted all the coin dealer I could find from north of Santa Ro a to outh of...more San Jo e, and point both ea t and we t of tho e citie . I talked to all tho e many dealer , and obtained quote from them on what they old coin for, what they paid to buy coin , and al o gained valuable in ight into the way they treated their cu tomer . A a re ult of talking with each of the e coin dealer , I formed opinion a to their hone ty, integrity, and competency. My opinion wa that only Don Rinkor [of DON RINKOR RARE COINS] had the qualitie of hone ty, integrity and competency that I wanted and needed in a coin dealer. After dealing with Don on countle coin tran action , over a long period of time, I have concluded that DON i a man who e brilliance a a coin dealer and numi mati t, i exceeded only by hi qualitie a a per on. Don happen to be a brilliant man, a defined by hi numi matic competence, and hi extraordinary and glowing ethical tandard . I have met many mart coin dealer , however, unlike Don, the other coin dealer , in my opinion, apply their uperior coin knowledge to try to take advantage of cu tomer , in order to gain profit. Don i at the other end of the pectrum, in that he elfle ly applie hi brilliance IN THE ETHICAL SERVICE OF HIS CUSTOMERS! Don i what i known a a "diamond in the rough." He ju t happen to be a pectacular individual, and a per on with whom it i a plea ure, and great privilege, to conduct bu ine . And notably, in the proce he elfle ly and graciou ly hare hi knowledge to help educate hi cu tomer .

I recently inherited a large coin collection. I earched the internet for coin dealer and my local choice were either pawn hop or coin dealer with mixed review at be t. I came acro Don Rinkor Rare Coin and wa impre ed with the cu tomer review . The main drawbac...morek wa it wa approximately 200 mile from my home in Sonora (not Sonoma), CA. Being that my knowledge of collectable coin wa minimal I decided it wa worth the drive. I poke to Don by telephone the day prior to my planned trip and he informed me he would be in Long Beach at a trade how but hi taff wa extremely qualified and were empowered to conduct bu ine in hi ab ence. I left my home at 4:00 AM and wa waiting in the parking lot of the hop when it opened at 9:00 AM. I introduced my elf to Jeff Brody, told him my tory, and he began the ta k of orting through 3 torage bin of coin . Jeff took the time to explain the potential value of each item, the factor involved in the valuation, and what I would be paid. He carefully documented each item. It took u the better part of the day to ort through the collection but at day' end I left the hop with a check that far exceeded my expectation . A plea ed a I wa , Jeff actually conveyed how much he enjoyed the proce and how my mo t optimi tic e timate of the collection' value wa exceeded. I al o worked with Mike Rinkor. Mike re earched a number of Chine e Panda coin and provided a generou offer that added to a great day. The day then got even better. When I arrived home there wa a voicemail waiting for me from Jeff. He informed me he had di covered a di crepancy and that I would be receiving a ub tantial upplemental check. Incredible! Thi i an out tanding bu ine . My experience exceeded any expectation I could have anticipated. I will not oon forget the day I pent at Don Rinkor Coin . view less
