New website security measures at GreatCollections (important for last second bidders)...

In today's day and age, we are constantly working to ensure our website is running smoothly 100% of the time.
Due to recent denial of service attack on websites hosted near Washington, DC (which is where our server is located), we have implemented a new security measure to confirm website visitors are not robots, if a denial of service attack is taking place. Robots regularly try to download full websites and in our case, the millions of coin images that we host in our auction archive. The new security measure will likely never be activated during an auction, however, it's done automatically when our software detects certain activity to our website.
I am only mentioning this because it will take 5-10 seconds to confirm your access to GreatCollections, should the new security measure be activated. For last second bidders, please allow extra time when bidding to ensure your bid is not received too late.
If you ever have trouble accessing the GreatCollections website, please phone us at 1-800-442-6467 (+1 949 679 4180 from Overseas) or e-mail [email protected]
- we monitor messages 7 days a week, even if we are not in the office.
We appreciate your business.
