Testimonials

 

“I had to tell you about a coin deal that I purchased last week. A customer that had sold me some silver coin and sterling flatware several years ago called me and said she had more coins and flatware.

“When I arrived at her house, she had a dozen old sterling collector spoons from the late 1800s, candlestick holders and a small box of U.S. proof sets. The proof sets were a run of one each from 1975-1996. I was quite disappointed to see these since many are worth not much more than face value. I didn’t even bother checking the sets to make sure that the coins were in the correct case and not damaged.

“After letting the box sit in the corner for two days, I decided to look at the sets and check the 1979 and 1981 for Type 2 varieties, No luck. Then I decided to check the 1990 set for the ‘No S.’ I failed to mention that none of the sets appeared to have ever been opened.

“I couldn’t believe it when I opened the set and saw the cent with no mintmark. I probably wouldn’t have looked if it hadn’t been for the coverage Numismatic News had been giving the 1990 sets.

“Before I contact the customer to let her know that she will be getting an extra bonus check, I must now find someone interested in purchasing it. I just had to let you know that, thanks to you, another set has been identified.” – Mark Wieclaw, Chicago, Ill.

“Your article [Medal celebrates Liberty Head Design] became the catalyst to a major sales campaign for this issue, based on the tracked conversions originating from your NN webpage. Of the 750 pieces struck, there are only 140 left for sale. I’d foresee a sellout within another week’s time, and have diligently been preparing shipments to the nicest group of collectors in our industry. I cannot thank you enough, this story has been very well received.” – Jared Grove, NN letter to the editor

“I was recently elected President of the Lower Cape Fear Coin Club, so 20 years after my first term and I was trying to get things turned around. Got some help from Rich Jewel of PAN, who gave me April Krueger’s email and Dave Littleton, who sent us some handouts. But, the purpose of this email is to tell you what two great staff members NN has in these two ladies [April Krueger and Kim Frankenhoff]. Lots of help, always friendly AND they got the job done. Great team.” – Ray Flanigan, in response to advertising and show calendar customer service

 

“Sincere thanks to you, and writer Debbie Bradley, for featuring Army Sgt.
