The best way to find a reputable gold buyer is to check credentials. The buyer should be licensed by the state of New York to buy gold. When you bring the gold in, they are required by law to ask for government identification. If they don't have a license and they don't request to see yours, start looking for another buyer. Keep this in mind:
2. Be sure they have a good standing in the community
3. Choose a company with years of experience buying, selling, and authenticating real gold.
