March 22nd/29th Auctions Extended 14 Days, Orange County Update...

Ian Russell on Wed, Mar 18, 2020 08:02:28 PM
Dear Friends,

A lot has happened in the past 24 hours.  Yesterday afternoon, the Orange County government announced a "Shelter in Place" order, and then last night, completely backtracked and ordered all businesses to stay open.

Between the two announcements yesterday, we decided to extend our auctions by 14 days.  Our team has already taken precautions to limit exposure by avoiding crowds and we have always strictly limited those who visit our office.  Other than that, our business is operating as normal.  We are here from early until late, 7 days a week, working on some of the best coins we've ever had the pleasure to auction.

All statistics in last Sunday's auction were up, from website visitors, unique bidders, new bidders etc.  Our sales on Sunday exceeded our pre-auction estimates by 12%.

If you are considering selling your collection, we still have space in our late April and May auctions and we're ready to offer generous and fast cash advances, as well as our free auction estimate.  To sell your coins, click here or telephone us at 1-800-442-6467.

Stay safe and keep in touch.

Ian & Raeleen

PS. We currently have almost 9,000 (that's right, nine thousand!) certified coins listed in auction.  Grab a coffee and peruse them all at www.greatcollections.com.  If something you're looking for isn't listed, please consider sending us your wantlist and we'll notify you when one appears in an upcoming auction.
