The last thing I want to do is argue about grading standards. ABOUT US Coins-Coins-Coins is the eBay store of parent company Marc R Breitsprecher, classical numismatist, a full-time professional numismatic firm located in Fort Worth, Texas. We started selling coins here on eBay about 20 years ago so this is not our first rodeo! For the last decade plus we have concentrated on our website and VCoins store, which left us little time for a third venue. We looked forward to the time when we could return to a regular eBay schedule. BUSINESS PHILOSOPHY A lot of things have changed on eBay in the last 20 years. In 1997 most listings were auctions starting at $1 with no reserve. There were no stores and no buy-it-now. It seems like one of the new strategies is to post a coin for sale at an astronomical price then offer a huge discount. I don’t know about you, but seeing an $80 coin priced at $900 then discounted by 80.5% to the new low, low price of only $175 is a real turnoff. I do things the old-fashioned way, no tricks, no gimmicks, no “make an offer”…just the price I need for the coin posted with a clear picture and accurate description. ABOUT OUR PHOTOS All of our photos are taken with a high quality digital camera mounted on a professional coin photography system imported from Germany. Every detail is brought to life using this camera so you can accurately grade the coin. Most buyers feel that the coin, once received, is better in hand due largely to the high magnification and bright light needed to photograph the coin. We also operate a professional photography business and photograph coins for other dealers and collectors. AFFILIATIONS We are members of the ANA, lifetime members of the ACCG, charter members of VCoins, members of the TNA and lifetime members of NOW. We adhere to a strict code of ethics as a professional coin dealer. SHIPPING AND HANDLING Within the United States: Bid on as many coins as you like and save money; we are more than happy to combine shipping costs on multiple auction wins for the one single rate. In order to receive combined shipping, please wait until all of my auctions have ended for the night, at which time I can combine multiple purchases. All coins are shipped via USPS First Class mail. I can also ship via faster methods such USPS Priority Express. See shipping and payments tab in this auction listing for prices. Outside of the United States: Because of the new USPS “shape-based” approach to international shipping, I am no longer able to combine shipping for multiple coins…I now ship one coin per envelope. Coins are shipped via USPS Airmail. I can also ship via faster methods such as USPS Priority International and USPS Priority Express International where I can combine multiple purchases. See shipping and payments tab in this auction listing for prices. TERMS OF SALE All coins are unconditionally guaranteed to be authentic forever. We offer a 14-day return on all coins if you are not fully satisfied. Any coin returned must be in the same condition as it was shipping…not cleaned or otherwise damaged by the buyer. A full refund of the purchase price is given.
