It's easy for anyone to erect a “we buy gold” banner; but look for these signs before doing any business there:
1. Do they try and measure your gold or collectible coins somewhere other than in front of you? Luriya always measures your valuables where you can see them fully.
2. If the scales are “funny”, then you can bet you'll get less cash for collectible coins from that dealer. Makes sure the scales are officially certified – like Luriya's, whose scales are calibrated and ratified by NYS.
3. Is the business in any consumer reporting index, like the BBB?
4. Do they help you learn how to sell collectible coins by showing you where to look for value? Luriya has 2nd generation, industry-recognized Jewelers that are happy to actually educate customers about authentication and jeweler's marks.
