I had a vintage watch serviced here at a substantial cost. The watch came back with a loose bracelet. The watch also continued to work poorly. I took the watch at the suggestion of a very reputable jeweler to Montgomery Jewelers in Cincy. They are one of the only jewelers in Ohio to be be able to repair the bracelet. I asked them to look at the watch to see why it was not keep time. It appears that the watch was never serviced. I called the owner and informed him of the matter. He belittle me as a concerned citizen, accused me of calling his watchmaker a crook and hung up on me. His rudeness was astonishing. I would avoid this place of business at all cost. If you have any vintage timepieces run the other way and head down to Montgomery Jewelers.

I read the reviews before going to the shop. Lots of negatives but I thought I would go and give the store a chance. Very close to home. The man did not say hello , I told him I have many coins to sell, part of an estate. I placed the bags iof coins on the counter. He tossed bags around and then pulled out silver dollars.(please know he still had not spoken!) He look and told me a price. I said are you interested in the other coins and he flatly told me he was pricing a FEW coins to find out if I was going to be a WAST OF TIME!
We had only just begun! Does he just HATE PEOPLE. I was taken back... I use city search all the time and from now on I will listen to the reviews. The owner is very very rude and I have no idea how he is even in business.

Without question the rudest, unfriendliest, most unhelpful establishment I have ever been in. The owner/employee (bald, glasses) was dismissive and completely indifferent. Yes, a bad place for repair work, but even worse, a terrible example of a human being. Trust me on this.

I visited this business and was dismayed by the bad attitude and lack of respect the owner had for me. I chalked it up for a bad day.
About a month later I called him on the phone to inquire on a piece that is rather expensive (I had every intention to purchase). He was rude and short on the phone. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me! So I went and spent my money at Allens in Westerville! Every chance I have, I will tell everyone I know about this ingrateful rude @$$!

I went to Arlington Coin and, after waiting about 10 minutes to be served, asked to look at Indian Head coins that he had in stock. He gave me a box of junk to look through. In the meantime, a friend came in,and he pulled out a nice collection of Indian head cents to show his friend. I felt discounted and insulted, and I will not be back. Attitude is a problem.

I called this morning and said ""I have some old coins that I found at my mom's house"". He said ""I don't deal in World coins"" and slammed the phone down. The thing is, I have old siver dollars and dimes that he claims to be looking for on his website. I am going to the guy in Grandview. I hope that we make a whole lot of money on these 100 or so 19th and early 20th certury coins.
I have been to several local dealers and I must say here he is always willing to tell me about my coins and why they have value (or don't). I have been treated fairly on both the buying and selling side of the table here.
He is sometimes busy, but always spends time with me when it is my turn.
Go here and you will see!!
I have dealt here for years. i have been to the store i would say over 100 times and the owner is very fair on selling and buying. i would say best prices given for coins in ohio,, since i do not buy much i only like to sell.
also i would say the owner is very good with the watches and even helped make my dads car unlocker work. very nice store and well lit. good for looking at nice coins and watches.

I have been buying coins on and off for a few years. Had some good and bad experiences elsewhere around town. When I walk through a coin shop, I can usually expect mediocre service unless I am dropping some serious cash. I did not get mediocre service at all here. Very knowledgeable, helped give advice on a purchase, gave me the pros and cons about a coin. Actually he told me to wait on a purchase because he was expecting a coin in that was way better for around the same price. Don't know many folks that do that much at all now a days. Will definitely go back.
