Ask an Antiques Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks for your excellent photos. Generally speaking, such items first hand- especially the ones that are mis-strikes. It can be very hard to put specific values upon some coins because by their nature, the ones that escaped the mint with errors or faults are rare and there are not always examples to compare them to. For this reason when I have such coins, I seek the advice of experts who are far more likely to have something to compare things to. Still typing..
By far the best advice - and a place to sell if you wish is Spinks. They are the country's leading authority on coin valuation and they get the best prices for coins.
Spinks London 0207(###) ###-#### They will be open on Monday morning. They will not charge for valuing your coins.
Although I have been in the antique trade for 40 years, I would myself be seeking their advice on these modern coins because some can be quite valuable but the differences between rare and therefore valuable coins and the ones that are just face value can be very subtle and frankly a bit confusing. If Spinks tell you that something is GOOD then that valuation will stand up to any questioning. Hope that helps. Greg
Firstly I suggest that you forward some pictures to Spinks. They will probably then give you a general summary of what you have. Obviously anyone who is going to buy them will wish to see them in person but your initial enquiry should tell you whether it would be worth your time in travelling to get them looked at. What area are you in please?
