Harry Laibstain Rare Coins has been in Business for 35 years. Through good markets and bad, we have continued to go up the numismatic ladder, buying bigger collections, better coins and learning what makes the rare coin market tick. We have secured hundreds, perhaps thousands of relationships with dealers, collectors, brokers and auction houses. We know how to buy and sell coins competitively, often outbidding other dealers by thousands of dollars at public auction or in competitive bidding deals. We have handled numerous 7-figure collections, from early gold to copper sets by die marriage. When we are called in to bid on a deal, we want to win, so we bid accordingly. When you want an offer on a coin or you want to trade something, we won`t waste your time with low offers. Dealers and collectors often line up at our booths at trade shows to offer us coins. We will treat you with the same respect we treat them.
We do not make sight unseen offers or estimates. Estimates over the phone can lead to confusion and false expectations, either high or low, and decrease the chance of a successful transaction. There are many different pricing sources available online to establish ballpark estimates or insurance values before shipping your coins.
At HLRC.com, we have special insurance that allows you to ship coins to us and we will pay all postage and insurance. It is amazingly simple and you don`t have to declare any value at the post office. The packages can contain a relatively high value; so many transactions are done this way through the U.S. Mail. For complete instructions on how to ship coins, contact our office. We can also send you the boxes and preprinted labels upon request. No one makes it easier. Your coins arrive overnight and are processed quickly, usually resulting in an overnight check in a day or two. Over 95% of these transactions take from one day to less than a week and about the same percentage result in purchases. On the off chance we are not interested in the coins you send or we cannot get together on price, we ship your coins back overnight at our expense. Lower value groups may be shipped Priority Mail.
If your Collection is too large, bulky, or extremely valuable, we will come to you and evaluate it on your premises. We can also arrange to visit you during one of the many trade shows that we attend all over the country. Whether you send your coins to us, see us at a show, or we come to you, we are always eager buyers. It's our nature to be highly competetive.
Payments can be made by check or bank wire. We do not offer cash.
If you have any questions about selling your coins, or collection, call us at 800-869-1869 between 9-5 weekdays, or email email@example.com
