It largely depends on what you’re selling. We do not buy sports cards from the 1980s or 1990s. We do, however, buy high-grade vintage stars, modern stars, rookie stars, and autographs, as well as game-used memorabilia cards.
Yes, we do. We place an emphasis on diamonds, especially large stones. The values vary depending upon cut, clarity, and shape. Very rarely will we buy gemstones that are not already mounted.
Yes, as long as it is either Upper Deck or PSA/DNA authenticated.
Not a lot, but we do purchase a select few. We also purchase modern stamps at a fraction of face value and use them as postage on internet orders.
Yes, we buy Rolex and other high-end luxury watches, along with gold watches.
In most cases, it must say “sterling” on it.
Different variations depend on the year and country of origin. We use books and guides that give us the actual silver weights for different coins.
This depends upon the silver market at that specific time. The market – and, therefore, the prices – change daily and continually during any given day.
Well, that depends on what you’re selling. There are many variables involved: Are we buying for gold weight or for resale? What karat of gold is the item? Is it white or yellow gold? For many items, the heavier the weight, the higher the price, but that is not always the case. Designer jewelry can usually sell quickly and therefore carries a greater value.
