How are your coins Graded?
While most of the coins we deal with are certified by independent grading services such as the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS),
Numismatic Guaranty Corp (NGC), Independent Coin Grading Corp., (IGC) and ANACS, our professioanls staff has over 50+
years of experience in grading and evaluating coins. These companies have been recognized as being the standard in their profession for their grading expertise. Each
corporation guarantees their authenticity independently. Here at Estate Wholesaler's we rely on these opinions and
grading services for each fof our coins, however we cannot guarantee that these coins will achieve the same or higher grading
from an independant grading service. Therfore we respect that the opinions of the services we choose to grade our coins. We would be happy to offer our assistance in helping you grade your own collection.

Not as much as you might think. We have several investors holding coins who have several million
dollars invested, and others who have only a few hundred. There are collections for every age and kind. Feel free
to email us for questions regarding starting a collection.
Why begin collecting coins?
To begin collecting coins, especially rare and hard to find coins, it may depend on your budget you have set aside. Many
people begin with a few coins and begin to build from there. Coin collecting can be a very lucrative and
interesting hobby or lifestyle. Many even have retired off the coins they have collected over the years...
What is numismatics?
A simple definition of numismatics is the the collection and study of coins, paper money, tokens and medals.
Coins which are valued for their rarity, condition and beauty beyond the value of their gold content.
Generally, premiums for numismatic coins are higher than for bullion coins.
Why is coin "Grading" important?
The overall grading of a coin can be related to any line of work. The better quality the item, the higher the premium. Coins
are of no exception. Similar to how PSA grades
baseball cards and such for quality. Graded coins have a much higher value, since they have been inspected for
authenticity and condition.
