So where in New Hampshire do you go when you
want to sell your gold, silver, coins and jewelry?
Here’s the scoop on the most common places.
Update… I’m sure you wouldn’t fall for this… but… many companies, especially the traveling buyer shows, have very official and prestigious (often, completely misleading) business names and titles. Often, their names imply they’re associated somehow with well known and respected organizations they have nothing to do with.
You probably have one in your town. And sure… they’re great for selling your stuff for quick cash… just not much of it. You can almost always get more at a coin and jewelry shop.
E-Bay and Craigslist
You may get more than you would from a pawn shop… but … you’ll have to spend some time writing listings, taking pictures, receiving phone calls and inquiries, meeting with strangers, and paying extra fees.
Traveling gold buyers at hotel road shows
These guys travel around the country, rent rooms at local hotels, and buy full page newspaper ads. Their ads promise to give you the highest prices for your coins, gold, and jewelry, luring unsuspecting people with misleading and over-hyped headlines.
So what do they pay? Well… let’s just say… you’ll only get pennies on the dollar, compared to what a reputable shop will pay you. Think about it… they’re not part of your community, so they have no incentive to pay you what your stuff is really worth. They’ll be gone tomorrow.
Plus, their buyers typically are inexperienced in the industry. Oops… sorry if I offended them… I think they have to go through a 6 week class to become gold, silver, and rare coin experts. Jeesh…
But your smartest option… is to simply check with your local coin shop first
If you want to sell your gold, silver, platinum, or coin collection…why wouldn’t you first stop by or call a reputable local coin dealer or jewelry store, and see what they’ll pay? (If you’re in New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, or Massachusetts, you can call me at Seacoast Coin & Jewelry in Hampton, NH)
A local coin shop will almost always pay more – usually MUCH more – for your coins and gold or silver jewelry than the other places.
That’s over 7 times more! So those guys either know nothing about coin values, or they simply prey on unsuspecting people to sell their stuff for quick cash. Either way, don’t trust the traveling buyer shows to give you anywhere near what you gold or coins are worth, because I’ve seen it firsthand.”
