9. Consign your rare coins and currency to Sam Lukes’ Numismatics. Tell me what you realistically need to net and I will then add my markup. It will be a win-win transaction! We are members of the American Numismatics Society, the Fly-In Club and ANACS, NGC, and PCGS grading services.

10. A final important consideration: Our company prides itself on acquiring and offering high end coins, irrespective of their assigned numerical grades. For example, one might purchase a particular item in MS-63 at a cheaper price from one of our friendly competitors but it may have just barely made that grade (low end). We, in turn, may charge more for the same date and grade because our coin will be high end , closer to being MS-64 (in some cases, even upgrading to the next level). Hence, you will be getting the most value for your hard earned dollars, a factor worth considering.
