Bad Collector, Bad Spouse?
January 07, 2014

It may be a new year, but the same old problems continue to plague us.

Here we are on the seventh day and already I have received an email from a bereaved spouse of a collector.

“My husband passed away recently and left me with his coin collections. The coins are not organized and since I have never shared his interest in coin collecting, I am perplexed as to what to do next. I contacted some of the companies he was buying his coins from but they were not helpful; they are more interested in selling me more coins than advising me on how and where to sell my coins, which is what I would like to do eventually.
