Wants List

I am not interested in damaged coins. Coins with edge knocks, bruises, evidence of cleaning, artificial toning, tooling, carbon spots, verdigris, environmental damage, excessive reduction marks etc etc will only be considered if the overall eye appeal is still attractive.

Eye appeal is as important to me as grade, and it is the [eye appeal – grade – price ] combination that guide any purchasing decisions.
