Tip for Auction: Handling coins and stamps

Michael Rosenberg, Coin and Stamp Specialist:

I completely agree with Harry (see previous Tip for Auction post) and apply this rule to coins and stamps.  Also, when you are dealing with proof coins, make sure to use gloves when handling them; never touch them with your bare hands or you risk leaving spots.  I also highly recommend using tweezers when handling mint, unhinged stamps.

July 18 Appraisal Event find

A coin collector from Fremont brought this group of coins from his father’s collection to the appraisal event held on Wednesday, July 18th.  He chose Michaan’s Auctions as his first source of one-on-one appraisal after doing some of his own research online.  Coin and Stamp Specialist Michael “Misha” Rosenberg valued each coin to what the client felt was a “trustworthy appraisal.” He found the values given by Rosenberg to be more reliable and realistic than many of the augmented figures he discovered online; many were dealer projections with some inflated up to 4 times over the actual coin value.  As a result, he decided to return for another Michaan’s Auctions appraisal event where he would bring some of his high-end pieces for evaluation.
