Even sophisticated collectors stand to benefit by having a second set of trained eyes look over prospective coins before making a purchase. In this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast, we dig deep into the topic of auction representation and why professional numismatists have a major edge over collectors when it comes to evaluating and picking out the best coins. We talk about the difference between "potluck" coins purchased online and coins that are bought only after careful examination. We discuss the limitations of coin photography (even great coin photography). We also cover the type of information a collector should ask for and share with a professional when its time to team up and build that great collection. This is an important and often overlooked factor of collection building that we shine a light on this week. CoinWeek is the #1 website online for news and information about numismatics.
