New Coin Shop, Great Experience!

| copper coin collector

Hello, ANA members...

Yesterday, after school, I went to a coin shop that I have not visited before. I hoped for a good experience and also to pick up a few nice coins for my collection. In spite of these expectations, the time I spent there was waaay better than I had ever imagined. When I entered the shop, I was greeted by a man probably in his 50s (a pretty average coin shop owner, to be honest) and his dog, Dave who happened to be spending the day at the shop. He was very friendly and informed me that if I wanted to look at anything, I could ask him and he would get it out. I asked to take a look at his box of wheat cents for sale, mainly to look for that 1948 "S" that I haven't been able to find yet. Fortunately, I found a BU example in the box and took it for $3. After that, I requested to look through a box of Liberty nickels behind the counter. While looking through the Nickels, I found a nice VF 1911 coin, and bought it for $10. (By then I had spent most of the $15 I brought) After my purchases, I asked him about coin shows and clubs and what his recommendations were. He referred a few people to me who could help me find a coin club that was right for me. I had a very informative conversation with him about coin shows/clubs, and then left, encouraged by the positive experience I had just had.

Thanks for reading,

That's a coin shop owner that understands customer service and the absolute requirement to engage the young collectors. From your account; I think he has just picked himself another regular customer. BZ to Him!!!!
