Thank you Great Collections. I am very happy how you handled my mother’s collection of coins. Great job on the sale, pleasantly surprised at what they sold for. Steve Weinberg GreatCollections was privileged to handle the Ruth Weinberg Estate in 2018.

Very professional...
I've only been here a couple of months, but, so far I am enjoying the site. Very professional and kinda classy. I feel like I should put on a nicer shirt before I log on.

I recently consigned 3 coins to GC and had them checked for CAC. One did make it and I was happy to see that it realized nearly double the amount of recent sales in auctions, GC and others. The other coins did not CAC but again I was pleased with the result and realized more than expected. Thanks for providing a low cost and efficient platform for selling and buying with a substantial base of bidders. Also, I received the settlement in a matter of weeks, not months as with other auction houses.

The thank you is for a large sum check I received...
Ian, I meant to email you and say thank you the day I received my check for an auction I had sold some coins in, but the holidays came upon me and I got preoccupied. The thank you is for a large sum check I received exactly 1 week after the auction which ended December 16th. WOW! It arrived on Monday December 24th, just in time for Christmas. You did not, nor were obligated in any way to send that check out that quickly, even though I did have some other coins that were to sell on the 23rd of December. This was very generous of you and is again a reflection of the great group of individuals I have been dealing with at GC ever since the company began. Thanks again and have a great and prosperous New Year!! Dennis

Your coins, photographs and customer service are an A+...
Hi Ian, Happy new years. I would like to thank you for getting my last shipment out in time for Christmas. I had a coin in there for Christmas gift and it was great. Once again your company has shown why you are the best company out there. Your coins, photographs and customer service are an A+. What ever your business model needs to do is fine with me. Keep up the good work. Will see you soon someday at the Long Beach show.

My every endeavor with GreatCollections has been nothing short of outstanding...
Ian, I would like to thank you and your staff for doing such an awesome job to help the Coin Collecting hobby. I have been buying coins since way back when. It was awesome to see you establish Great Collections and make it such a huge success. I believe Raeleen has been with you since inception and she is awesome also (Have met you both at a coin show twice). The fact that you have kept your buyers commission at 10%, you have kept your shipping to $5, you have kept your seller commissions low is what has made and kept Great Collections great. This in turn has made coin collecting easier and affordable. The accuracy of GreatCollections is simply amazing - having made hundreds of purchases, I have never had one incorrect shipment or purchase, never had a late shipment, never had anything but seamless transactions, this my friend is a remarkable sustained track record. I know you get some people that complain for whatever reason, however, my every endeavor with GreatCollections has been nothing short of outstanding. Please pass along to your staff how much all of your efforts mean to a great deal of collectors out there as I always hear nothing but good things from my peers. Thank you again and keep up the great work!!! Rob

I have also been happy with the final bids...
Hi Raeleen and Ian, I was surprised to see such an early payout, of my most recent auction consignments, I have placed with you. I have also been happy with the final bids, my coins are selling for in your auctions. I am assembling another group of certified coins to send your way soon. Thanks again!

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!
