My brother, from whom we inherited the coins, would have been proud of what we sold them for...
Hi Ian, I want to thank you for personally helping me through this process! You were always prompt to answer my questions and gave me an honest estimates of what the coins were worth. We did really well based on your listing recommendations. My brother, from whom we inherited the coins, would have been proud of what we sold them for. I will now be looking at all my change! Thank you again!!

Thank you for all your hard work and advertising...
Thank you for all your hard work and advertising you did on selling my 1922 toned Peace Dollar. I'm glad to have met you and talked about the coin and cross grading to PCGS and CAC approved. It was all very exciting for me to see it sell and start looking for the next great find. Again, thank you very much to you and your staff.

Your past service and quick pay was exemplary...
Aloha, Just wanted to say you did a super job selling my Hawaiian coins. Yesterday I sent you a small box of graded gold coins (U.S. pre 1933) for consignment. Your past service and quick pay was exemplary. Much Mahalos, (Thanks). David

Just wanted to say thank you for the beautiful coin...
Just wanted to say thank you for the beautiful coin (GC Item No. 572615) that I just received on Saturday morning. The 2009 UHR MS-70 PL is far more beautiful in person than it was in the photos. Further, the service of Great Collections was impeccable, as always. Warm Regards,

Thank You for all the service and kind advice you have provided me since 2014...
Thank You for all the service and kind advice you have provided me since 2014. I am so happy I put faith in your ability to guide the novice coin collector on how to sell grade and whom to trust in the Coin World. I felt the enthusiasm and professionalism of your auction enterprise from the start. My safe and tool boxes are crammed with coins I loved to collect. NGC price guide is a help. PCGS photo grade is a good study tool I have been using to focus an accurate reading of the grade of a coin. I find coin studies entertaining. It is overwhelming to once a collector and never a seller of coins to break down what I have and to trust anyone to grade the coins except I have you Ian of whom I feel you are of an impeccable character to trust. Alone; I feel you are the noble star in my life in The Coin World. You Ian are a true Gentleman and a brilliant enterprising young man. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your superb knowledge consultancy and management in the sphere of numismatics, port folio coin collections and honest auctions of supreme integrity. Great Collections is your baby and you are doing sensationally in serving both buyers and sellers. Thank You for helping us to steer the course to success and happiness in the intriguing world of coins and paper money. You are The Go To Guy. You have always been courteous and kindly articulate in your dealings with myself and you are a good listener to those of whom stop by your table at the Coin Expos. Cheers for you Mate! Respectfully, Patrick

I’m grateful to be able to do business with such a well-oiled operation...
Just finished up with another outstanding auction at GreatCollections. Realized above expectations and action was lively. Key dates and semi-keys clearly get the respect they deserve; and the coin collecting world is flourishing across the board here. I’m grateful to be able to do business with such a well-oiled operation. Sincerely, Dennis

Good Morning, Over the last couple of years, I have made about 50 purchases from GC. I thought I would stop and let you know it is an honor to work with you. Your site is well done, information is accurate, notices are timely, and shipping is always expedient. Thanks so much and look forward to working with you. Have a great weekend! Blessings, Tom

I am happy to say that the first sale greatly exceeded the overall expectations...
What sets GreatCollections apart from their competitors is a very simple, straight-forward website. I found the competitor's sites confusing & hard to navigate. Many of my fellow collectors have expressed the same concerns which means that we don't even peruse their sites! When I first consigned the Mr. M.E.L. Collection, I had a frank conversation with Ian Russell about the expectations regarding the end result. I am happy to say that the first sale greatly exceeded the overall expectations. GreatCollections has the following that produces results! It was easy to follow the active auction on "MyGC" page and track progress on all the listings. An easy-to-follow closing statement with payment was mailed within a month. Gerald B. Higgs Bonners Ferry, ID

Your images are top notch!!
As this was my first purchase, just wanted to let you know that I did receive the coin and reviewed it last night - it's a winner!! What I already like about you guys already is the quality of your images as being truly reflective of the coin and not doctored via lighting or other techniques so often found at many other coin sites. Your images are top notch!! Also just wanted to thank you for helping me out this first time and wish you and yours a very happy Thanksgiving!

I will be buying from Great Collections exclusively from now on...
I recently won an auction this past weekend. I have purchased many coins from different sites over time, and I can honestly say the representation of the coin that Great Collections showed on their website was exactly the same in person. Buying toned coins is difficult online because how easy the pictures can be manipulated. I will be buying from Great Collections exclusively from now on.

have been pleased with your firm...
In the short time that I have done business with GreatCollections, I have been pleased with your firm's way in which it transacts WITH IT'S CUSTOMERS. With the way your firm "takes care of business" there is no reason to wish you and GreatCollections continued success for the future. YOUR COMPANY BY IT'S OWN actions have ensured your future success...

I found the process smooth and results much better than I expected...
I was very happy with the sales results from my two recent Great Collections auctions. I sold several duplicates from my collections as well as items that I no longer collect. I found the process smooth and results much better than I expected. I will be back!

Best thing for coin collecting since David Hall...
I cannot understate what an outstanding job you guys do. My passion for numismatics is kept alive and booming at your helm. Best thing for coin collecting since David Hall. Thanks.

Thank you for the professionalism...
I just wanted to say thank you for the professionalism you have offered. As a retiree, that has amassed a small hoard of gold and silver coins I feel confident, having seen first hand, that your organization is a trusted and reliable source for selling my numismatic collections. I trust we will do business for many years into the future...

It was a pleasure to do business with GreatCollections...
I've done business with many of the major firms and never experienced the personal touch like we had from Ian & Raeleen at GreatCollections. They walked me through the whole process from start-to-finish. Received full payment just 40 days after I mailed them my consignment. No seller's fees for coins over $1000 It was a pleasure to do business with GreatCollections - will be selling more through them in a few months.

GREAT pictures. Web site is easy to navigate and well organized...
I decided to get back into coin collecting after a 30 year hiatus. I thought, where will I get coins? Local stores are almost non-existent now and have limited selection. No longer a poor teen I wanted to buy better quality coins but couldn’t imagine purchasing over the internet without “seeing and touching the coin”. Everyone said to go to your competitor but wow, a 17.5% buyers fee and poorly lit pictures that made judging my beloved Lincoln cents tough. Not a fan either of hidden reserves and no bidding history during an auction. Then I found your site. GREAT pictures. Web site is easy to navigate and well organized. My coins ship promptly. If I have a question on a coin it is answered within 24 hours. Actually, you get pretty good reviews on the internet so you don’t need mine but here it is to use as you see fit.

The Gold Buffalo has already exceeded my expectations...
By the way, the Gold Buffalo has already exceeded my expectations. The bids are really high right now, and we are still 4 days off.-- It is an absolutely FLAWLESS EXAMPLE- the best one I have seen! Thanks again for the privilege of allowing me to sell some of my best coins through your GREAT Auction services!!
