Finding a coin dealer
I often get e-mails asking me to recommend a coin dealer. The problem is I’m just one person and it’s nigh impossible to know about and be able to recommend a coin dealer to people all over the US. However, all is not lost.
If you want to find a coin dealer, you have some options. None of these are foolproof ways of finding a reputable dealer, and you should always be smart and use common sense when it comes to buying and selling coins to or from anyone. With that disclaimer out of the way, here’s what I recommend.
First, take a look at the ANA dealer directory which lets you search by zip code, region or on dealer specific attributes.
If that doesn’t work, try the PCGS authorized dealers, where you can search by city and/or state, specialty, dealer name or service offered.
If you can’t find any dealers that way, there’s always the good old fashioned yellow pages. Forming a relationship with a local dealer is a great idea because they can be on the lookout for coins you’re interested in when they go to shows, and they can also provide you with a wealth of useful information.
Best of luck in your searches.
