That will give you enough time to prepare the coin for sale, market it, and give the buyer time to pay if this becomes a factor.
Although the internet is blurring the traditional coin seasons, the two best times of the year for selling your coins are still around the FUN show in January and at the summer ANA in July or August.
OK, I’ll be the first to get up in front of the group and admit that I’m an Old Holder-aholic.
I get excited by coins in older PCGS and NGC slabs and tend to overpay for them; as do most dealers.
As a seller, replicating an all-time record price can prove difficult.
Well I sort of saw it; the holder was so scratched up you literally couldn’t see the surfaces of the coin.
I took a chance and bought it, mainly because it sold so cheaply, then sent it to a grading service to be re-holdered. It later got a CAC sticker and I sold it for a good profit; all because it looked great in its new holder.
When I buy from collectors I try to be extra-fair and pay the most that I can while still leaving some room for myself to mark-up the coin up and resell it. If so, I’d love to know what they are and for you to share them with me.
