The coins we select for our clients must meet our Three Point Standard.
. Outstanding Eye Appeal – Numeric grading attempts to compartmentalize what is actually a continuous range of grade. For example, within the grade of MS65 there are coins which barely made the cut and those that are on the very cusp of MS66 and everything in between. In other words, there are MS65’s and then there are MS65’s. We select only those examples we feel are in the upper tier of their assigned grade, “Premium Quality” coins for our clients.
. Proven Track Record – We thoroughly research the past performance of each coin to give us a better indication of future potential.
. Steady, long term collector/investor demand – Being an example of a highly popular series of coinage with a broad base of collector demand provides the kind of strong upward price pressure it takes to greatly enhance the potential for future gains. These points have never been more self evident than in today’s tumultuous economic environment. The market for commercial grade, “run of the mill” coins has softened. However, the prices for premium quality material have held and made advances. Even in hard times, serious collectors, investors and dealers maintain the level of demand.
