I will do business with you again...
I just want to say that I’m very satisfied with what my coins brought in the recent auction. They went for more than I expected. I will do business with you again. Thanks.

Thanks for creating a no hidden reserve auction for coins...
Thanks for creating a no hidden reserve auction for coins. I especially like the fact that the coin pictured is the actual coin for sale. The fast delivery is also nice. Thanks again, BH

I Vote GreatCollections!
Over the past 35 years in the coin industry, I've seen it all. I've handled literally a billion dollars worth of coins, dealt with dealers around the world and all the major auction houses. There are people you want to deal with and people you want to avoid. I trust Ian and GreatCollections with my coins and have no hesitation in recommending GreatCollections for yours!

I appreciate the quality coins...
Just to let you know that I appreciate the quality coins you have posted in the auctions. More importantly, I like the 10% buyers fee, which works for both buyers and sellers. The auction houses that have a 17.5% sales fee (and some also have a listing fee) are too greedy and should adjust their fee schedule to promote the hobby, not to gouge those who enjoy numismatic material. Keep up the good work.

I continue to be so impressed with the speed of shipping items...
I continue to be so impressed with the speed of shipping items won in auction......every time (and I've won probably 15-20 items from GreatCollections), I've won a coin Sunday, paid that evening, and it arrives in Maryland on Wednesday! Commend your shipping folks.

Thank you all for such wonderful service...
Thank you all for such wonderful service I received my coins and was more than delighted with the whole transaction. The extra care taken with all aspects of the transactions from the sale through to the packaging for mailing is a credit to your business. I hope to be a future customer again. Kindest regards WL

Thanks for the great service...
On Wednesday 4/23/14 I placed my first order with you for a 2014 baseball HOF $5 gold PCGS PR70. When I got home from work on Friday it was there waiting for me. ( MY wife signed for it) Beautiful perfect 70 coin. ( no lint, no scratches, holder and tag are perfect). Too many times I have been disappointed by what was sent to me by other dealers as 70's. Also it usually takes them three days to a week before they even ship. I am amazed with your quick shipping and the coin was well packaged. In the future I will check your site first for coins I am interested in. Thanks for the great service.

I doubled it!
Thanks for the good work. A week before I originally contacted you, a local dealer offered $8000-$9000 for my collection. With your help, I doubled this amount through GreatCollections!

Thank you for excellent service...
GreatCollections provided the most profitable and best service for selling the rare 1837 $5 gold coin my father held for over 40 years. Ian Russell’s personal and straightforward communication gave me confidence through the entire process which ended up yielding $39,310. The large auctions take a much higher percentage and the biggest dealer in the U.S. only offered $28,000. Thank you, GreatCollections.

Thank you for excellent service...
Hello Ian, I just wanted to thank you for such a fast turn around with shipping and processing. I love that I can pay and most of the time by the next day its already shipped. Thank you for excellent service. We'll be doing business for a long time. I'm one of those people who cant wait for the coin to get to me, so the faster the better. Take care, Doug

Ian, trustworthiness is the most important attribute an individual can attain in a business atmosphere. Realizing your having this valuable attribute is the utmost reason for my making the decision to allow Great Collections to auction my complete sets of silver, gold and platinum Eagles. Your expertise in publicizing and your knowledge of the coin market has convinced me, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that my collections were placed in proper hands. Your pricing structure is advantageous to both the buyer and the seller.

Couldn't be more pleased...
Hello, Received the 1916-D Mercury Dime this morning and couldn't be more pleased. Been wanting to fill that hole for decades. I'm retired now and the kids are out of the house. This coin fits in nicely with my circulated set. Thanks much, Charles
