My Fixed Price List is now updated to display the coins sold and those that remain. Bust halves, dimes, quarters and dollars – even a glorious 1860 Transitional Pattern half-dime - are in the June 2015 Fixed Price List. Just click here or on the link above. You will be taken to the complete list, including Lance Keigwin’s photos of every coin. Note that almost every coin has been graded by PCGS. A number of coins come with CAC stickers. I have not adopted the habit of submitting everything to CAC. I know there are collectors who limit their acquisitions to CAC certified coins. If their legions grow I will eventually bow to the whims of the marketplace.

As always, you have 5 days from receipt of any coin to return it for a full refund. Past experience tells me there will be few if any returns. I do my best to be honest with the descriptions and Lance’s photos are the best in the business for capturing surfaces and color. Still, there is no substitute for personal examination.

To place an order simply call or email. The order phone is 510-479-1585. My email address is sdowney3@aol.com. If we’ve done business before I will happily ship coins to you on approval. If you are responding for the first time I will ask for payment before shipping. No sales tax is due unless you live in California and your order is less than $1,500. Costs of postage and insurance are added to each order.


The annual American Numismatic Association World’s Fair of Money kicks off Tuesday August 11, 2015 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. As in years past I will be pleased to offer a terrific selection of coins for your bidding pleasure. Mail Bid Sale No. 41 is fully consigned. There are 96 lots in the sale. You may now view the lot list and photos. Just click here or on the link at the top of the page. Note that unless otherwise specifically stated all coins have been graded by PCGS.

Please do not send your bids now. Wait until you read descriptions of the coins in the catalogue now being prepared. It will be posted in mid to late July on this web site. Hard copies will be mailed to regular bidders and to new comers who request the catalogue and intend to bid in the sale. An email announcement will alert you to availability of the catalogue. If you are not on my email list be sure to ask that you be added. Send your request to me at sdowney3@aol.com.


I look forward to seeing many of you in August at the ANA Convention. Get those hotel reservations now! You may do so by visiting the ANA web site at the link shown above.
