How to Shop for Old Coins, Antiques, and Other Collector's Items

Article Category: Classifieds

Author Name: Sancus Treasures

Pawn shops not only accept items of value such as electronics, watches, and jewelry, but old coins, antiques, and other collectors' items as well. This is why collectors of old coins, antiques, and other collectibles see pawn shops as a treasure trove of sorts. Thanks to television shows such as Pawn Stars and Hardcore Pawn, interest in the pawn shop industry and shopping for collectible items in these establishments are increasing.

How to play and win

Pawn shop owners need to run a business and gain a profit . Collectors need to purchase an item at a fair cost These are how the battle lines are drawn. Sometimes the pawn broker wins when he sells an item at a higher profit. On the other hand, a collector strikes a good deal when an item is acquired at a discounted price. Depending on how a collector negotiates , the amount involved in the exchange determines who got the better deal.

A collector should know his subject matter well. The more knowledgeable a collector is, the more he knows about the value of an item. Knowledge is a powerful instrument in negotiating prices. If a pawnbroker is less knowledgeable on an item, a collector can use this to his advantage and negotiate a lower price.

If one is in doubt about the authenticity of an item, a specialist should be consulted, particularly those experienced in spotting forgeries . Experts are usually employed or retained by pawnbrokers who usually maintain a list of reliable experts on different items to facilitate the appraisal of the originals from the counterfeits .

Some collectibles have a certificate of authenticity or any document that can vouch that an item is an original. Always ask for these documents from the pawnbroker. When such documents are unavailable or lost, an expert would be needed to validate the item in question.

Never depend on just a single pawnbroker's evaluation of an item. It is a good idea to talk with other pawn shops and ask how much an item would be valued . Having a clear idea on how much pawn shops is willing to sell an item can offer better control for the collector/buyer during the negotiations.

What could be worse than a fake item? A stolen one. Although an item may be authentic , it could have been stolen somewhere just like in some odd cases. To prevent any legal problem , always ask for a receipt from the pawn broker. This provides legal protection just in case an item was discovered to be stolen.
