INTRODUCTION   (back to top)

Finally, our new Fixed Price List is ready. We had hoped to have a list out in the Fall of 2008 but frankly just did not have time. Here's our first for 2009 and hopefully we'll have another ready for later this year. But don't hold your breath. We plan to mail this out on February 10th or 11th just after our return from Long Beach. It should be up on our website at about that same time. As per our custom there are no images in the printed catalog but all lots marked with an * are pictured in color on our website. In most cases we only have one of each item listed but in some cases we have duplicates and we may sub an identical item with a different inventory number if the item listed has been sold. That 2nd item will be as nice as the first. In addition there are a few specials we are listing. See SP001 (Widow's Mites) under Alexander Jannaeus, SP002 at the end of the Roman coin listings as well as SP003 and SP004 under Sicily in the modern and medieval section. In addition on page 12 you will find a listing of part of our large stock of "Odd and Curious" Money, which is also known as "Primitive Money", "Traditional Money" or that "strange stuff". This is the first time in years that we've put some of this material on our list. All, or at least most, are photographed on our website. Many of these items are heavy and additional postage charges may apply to these items.

As we write this list gold is at about $900 per ounce, while silver is in the $12+ range. If the price of either changes dramatically (especially gold) we reserve the right to change prices if necessary. If you want a photograph of an item that we have not photographed please note that we can supply digital images (only) at no charge for most items priced at $25 or more. We'll try to get them to you within 48 hours of request although we cannot guarantee that. Shipping is extra on all orders and our charges are listed on the back of the order form or under the "Ordering and Shipping" button near the top of our website. There is a $5 minimum shipping charge on any order.

The best time to reach a real live person (either Bill or Rita) is usually between 9 AM and 6 PM Mountain Time Monday through Friday although we have been known to answer the phone before and (especially) after those hours as well as on weekends. If we are not in, or not answering the phone, please leave a short but clear message and we will try to return your call as soon as we are able. Please speak slowly and distinctly. If we are unable to understand your phone message after two tries we will just erase it. You might also try to email us. If you need more information about an item for sale (other than whether it's available) please try to call during normal business hours before the material is in the safe. Please order by the 5 digit number and a short description. While that number is somewhat clumsy it makes matching the correct photograph to the item much easier.

We hope to have our new 2009 Israel/Palestine/Judaic Stock List out in early March as we will begin working on it in mid-February. If you normally receive this list by mail you probably will receive your copy in the mail again. If not, please send $5 for a copy which is refundable on an order of $25 or more. Or view it free, with images, on our website. It's the best list of its kind in the world. As we near the beginning of the 2nd decade of the 21st century the days of producing large runs of printed fixed price lists may soon come to an end. Postage and printing costs continue to rise despite the decrease in the cost of oil and gas. The majority of orders come to us via email from people who see the list on our website. We are tossing around a few ideas so that we can continue to serve everybody. Let us know if you have any ideas. We're happy to listen.

We're constantly asked, "How's the coin business". Good question. Our take is that it's still good to very good (Not G to VG). Not great, but certainly better than ok. I guess we'll find out from this list. People are still looking to buy coins for their collection. Others would rather have gold or silver than stocks. We're not investment advisors and we certainly don't have a crystal ball. However holding a favorite coin in your hand is almost always more satisfying than looking at your latest 401 (K) report. Even an ugly coin has a story to tell. As in, "what truck ran over this coin and why"?

As usual we plan to hold two auction sales in 2009. The first is set for Thursday June 4th, while the second is tentatively set for Thursday November 12th. Both catalogs will have photographs both in the catalog (black and white) and on our website (in color). While some of you were perfectly happy with our fall catalog (images available online only) and saw the increased quality AND quantity of photographs more of you were unhappy. Well we heard and we listened. We are now accepting consignments to both our sales. To be included in our Spring Auction we need to receive your consignment by early March, to be included in our Fall sale we need your material by September 1. Please keep in mind that we want single items that we can sell for $50 or more. Of course if you want to consign a large part or your entire collection we will take it all. Let us know what you have.
