    Question: What is your most important reason for visiting a coin dealer?

    Choose a statement from the list below that best fits you.


    I collect very specific coins and want dealers to assist me with my continuing collection.

    I collect slabbed coins, and use dealers to buy these at a fixed trends price

    I buy raw coins from dealers in whom I trust their own grading/pricing standards.

    I know what I want, and simply visit dealers to select from their inventory: the more the better

    I buy coins off eBay: dealers are not local or do not have what I want.

    I buy coins primarily at shows for better access to inventory

    I buy or trade most of my coins with other collectors

    I don't visit dealers. I collect coins from circulation.
