Gettysburg Coin Show Successful!

Next up, VNA in Fredericksburg, VA

September 18, 2017- Several years ago, we made the decision to cut back our coin show schedule. At the peak, we were attending about 35+ shows per year, many of them smaller club and regional venues. We began to notice a trend with these shows, as many lost relevance and/or died off. Some of this was collectors moving towards online business, some of it was poor show management, but much of it was a general lack of dealer support. That is why it was such a pleasure to see a small, upstart coin show like Gettysburg succeed. From the first day that Mike Dixon approached us with the idea of a Gettysburg, PA coin show five years ago, we were 100% onboard. We liked the idea, the location, and most of all, Mike's diehard commitment to making this show successful. Well, we are pleased to say that once again, Gettysburg was a resounding success. Both Friday and Saturday saw the bourse floor filled with collectors, most of whom were there to do business. Thursday (the official dealer set-up day), attracted a nice mix of non-tabled, coin dealers, from the vest pocket variety to large national firms. In a day and age when smaller shows seem to be dying off, it's nice to see one that is so healthy. Both Rob and Robbie were set up for the entire duration, and their booth served as an epicenter for activity. Coins were being bought and sold non-stop, evidenced by the many new purchases throughout The Reeded Edge store this week. The guys were really happy with the pace of thew show, and are hoping that this week's VNA show is equally as good.

Thursday, The Reeded Edge will head to Fredericksburg, VA for The Virginia Numismatic Association's Annual Coin Show. Greg Coburn, and his fellow association members did a first class job in resurrecting this show by moving it from Richmond to its present location. While we are sad that Greg is no longer spearheading this effort, we hope that the new management team can continue the association's tradition of show excellence. We were told that this year's venue will be one of the largest VNA shows on record, a direction that we had seen trending for the last several years. Much like Gettysburg, this is a collector-dominated show. There is always an interesting and eclectic mix of dealers at this show, and from what we're hearing, this year should be no exception. Rob and Robbie will be front and center, at their new end-cap booth. Just look for the giant BUYING BUYING BUYING sign, visible from virtually all vantage points on the bourse floor. The guys will have a large and varied inventory of certified coins with them spanning all areas of U.S. numismatics. Whether you are in Fredericksburg to buy or sell coins, The Reeded Edge wants to be your go-to dealer. Please stop by the booth and tell the guys how they can earn your business-we think you'll find them to be all ears!

This week, you will also find many new listings throughout the webstore, including almost 200 new certified coins from the Gettysburg show. Included are many lower-priced, collector coins; you don't have to be a lottery winner to enjoy the rare coin shopping experience here at The Reeded Edge.

We want to reiterate that our insatiable appetite to purchase fresh coins has not diminished, not even one little bit. Accordingly, if you have fresh coins for sale, whether it's one high-value piece or an entire collection, The Reeded Edge wants to be your coin dealer. Nobody likes, fresh wholesome U.S. Collector coins more than we do, a fact evident each and every time that we write a check. Please either stop by our table at Fredericksburg, or call our offices @ 301-724-0400, Rob's cell @ 240-422-0118 or Robbie's cell @ 301-876-1332 today for the guy's immediate, no-nonsense offer for your quality rare coins or collectibles.

We do NOT protect the guilty!

August 18, 2017 - This goes out to the few of you that think it's OK to abscond with our coins, money or both. NEWS FLASH - This is called stealing, and will not be tolerated. We want to let our position on this type of activity be known. First, we will prosecute you to the full extent of the law. Second, we will NOT protect your identity. We believe that if you steal from us, you will probably also steal from one of our fellow dealers (or worse yet, one of our customers). A thief is a thief!

Individual #1 - Edwin Allen Owen; aka "Doc" Owen (to the best of our knowledge, not an actual doctor), DOB: 11/04/1953, SSN: 556-70-2774; currently living with his brother, Marty, at 8740 Tuscany Ave. Apt 210, Playa Del Ray, CA 90293-8655. We currently have judgments against Owen in Maryland, Arizona and California. Owen owes us approximately $50,000.00 for an 1815/2 Half Dollar, NGC MS-64 and a 1900 Morgan Dollar, NGC PR-66 CAMEO *, both of which he absconded with in 2011 and never paid for.

Individual #2 - Matthew G. Rhodes, DOB: May 13, 1967; currently residing at 24118 Woodway Terrace, Beachwood, OH 44122 w/ a mailing address of 1284 SOM Center Rd. Box 163, Cleveland, OH 44124. Rhodes absconded with an 1859-O Liberty Seated Dollar, PCGS MS-61 valued at approximately $1800.00 on November 21, 2016. Rhodes was previously expelled from The American Philatelic Society for failure to return or pay for stamps valued in excess of $28,000.00. After winning an ANA mediation case against Rhodes for failure to return or pay for our coin, Rhodes was subsequently expelled from the ANA. With this recent independent arbitration decision bolstering our claims of theft, we are now in the process of trying to secure a criminal warrant for Rhode's arrest.

Our Thoughts on Reselling Auction Coins


April 13, 2017 - We wanted to take a moment to discuss a very important part of our business plan. In the coin business, we are judged by our peers in a number of different areas including the diversity and scope of our inventory, our expertise in the field of numismatics, and perhaps most importantly our integrity and honesty. For these reasons and others, we have made the commitment to never knowingly re-sell coins sourced from public auctions. There are some very important reasons for this, all inter-related to the above referenced public perception. For starts, we like to believe that our 30+ years in business has established a foundation, or as we prefer to call it, a feeder network, a nucleus of fellow numismatists who have become our supply chain. These proprietary sources are the result of hard work and dedication in forging lasting relationships. In our estimations, our customers are not only paying us for our coins but also our knowledge and insight. It is hard for us to justify merely acting as an agent, farming coins from auction and moving them to a retail environment. Everybody has access to numismatic auctions. They are online and well exposed. If you have a smart phone, tablet or computer these days, you have a direct path to the auction venue. Consequently, almost anybody and everybody has the ability to purchase coins from auction if they so desire. There is nothing exclusive about it, and more importantly, the role of a professional numismatist in the process is often not necessary. Sure, sourcing coins from private parties is a far greater challenge. But, when it is time to sell your coins, which scenario would you rather have: a collection of coins fresh out of the woodwork, or coins which have auction history with associated published prices realized and a ceiling to what they potentially could be worth? Again, when you purchase a coin from The Reeded Edge, you are purchasing more than just the coin. Along with it, comes the peace of mind that your acquisition is fresh to the market, and more than likely resurrected from a collector much like yourself. Fortunately, there are still enough coins in private hands to make this a viable approach for us. We know that there are some collectors, and even more dealers, that take exception to this approach; but it has worked for us and allowed us to garner a loyal and growing customer base. We think it works for them, as well!

Discount Coupons on the Webstore


April 13, 2017 - Recently, The Reeded Edge suspended the use of 10% off coupons in lieu of a system of net pricing. Through the feedback of our customers, we found that most people preferred  discounts to be everyday rather than exclusionary. Consequently, we lowered prices throughout the store and did away with the coupons. We did not anticipate the fallout from the customers still holding 10% coupons which were no longer valid. As a compromise, we will continue to honor these coupons and apply a 5% discount rather than no discount at all. Simply enter your existing code at checkout and your discount should apply. The net result is that you will be buying coins cheaper than ever. The Reeded Edge has always prided ourselves on offering great coins at fair prices. Our new pricing structure should definitely reinforce this concept. PLEASE NOTE: If you have any problems applying discount coupons, either call our office @ 301-724-0400 and talk to our IT Manager, Ray Hunt, or e-mail Ray directly,


Important News for all of our Customers Who Sell on eBay

Feb 28, 2017 - eBay sent a notification to all sellers today of a fee increase effective May 1, 2017. This is a significant increase amounting to almost 10% for top-rated sellers, and approximately 4% for all others. In addition, coins and currency which are presently charged a 6% final value fee for fixed-price listings, will increase to a 6.15% final value fee. To get a complete explanation of these additional fees and increases, please click HERE. We urge everyone who sells on eBay to voice their displeasure at these increases. The more people that CALL or write in to eBay, the more apt eBay may be to change this new policy. We can not over-emphasize how important it is for your voice to be heard!

The Reeded Edge Launches our 6th Annual Toys for Kids Christmas Celebration with The Salvation Army


December 12, 2016 - Success can be measured a number of different ways. Thirty years ago when The Reeded Edge was conceived, the challenge was to pay the bills and derive an income. Fortunately, hard work really does pay off. Things are quite different for us today, and we now are in a position each year to help those in our community that are less fortunate. Six years ago, we teamed up with our local branch of the Salvation Army to provide toys for children during the holidays. This has turned into a tradition for us, with everybody in the company participating at some level. For us, this is one of our highlights of the holiday season. There is nothing more gratifying than watching 50 children open presents and embrace the spirit of the holidays. We hope that each of you can touch someone's life during the holidays. It's really an uplifting experience that stays with us all year long.


Reprinted from July 5, 2014 (and we believe, it still holds true today) - Yesterday, I was pondering the fact that our country turned 238 years old. The United States is the oldest westernized democracy in modern history. We are an enigma in many ways, but perhaps the most poignant thing that resonated with me was the fact that we are getting stronger with age. In our younger years, we were constantly challenged. Through history we have had to continue to fight and defend our position, proving time and time again that we were worthy of our status in the world pecking order.

Thirty seven years ago, I conceived the idea of The Reeded Edge. We were going to be a coin dealer that catered to servicing local customers through trade shows one or two weekends per month. It didn't take long for me to figure out that with hard work and persistence, that there just might be a career potential with this business. But figuring something out and actually taking action are two different matters entirely. It took me another twelve years to make the commitment, and take The Reeded Edge into a full time venture. Since then, we too have had our challenges. But despite them (or perhaps, because of them), we have emerged stronger and better to become the company that you know today. To a great extent, the addition of Ray Hunt 15 years ago and Robbie Jenkins 8 years ago, have allowed for that growth. By taking us to the next step, from a technological and numismatic standpoint, we are now able to do things and service our customers in a way that we could not have done in our early years. Like our great nation, I would like to believe that we are on an upward path, solidifying our position in the numismatic arena.

July 4th made me realize that we as a nation have much to be thankful for, and we are lucky in so many ways. My business is no different. In fact, any organization is only as good as the sum total of its parts, and those parts are their people. I like to believe that I remind Ray and Robbie how important they are to our operation on a regular basis. You, our customers, comprise the other part of this group, and I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your loyalty, support and patronage. Without you, we could not be where we are today, a fact I never forget or take lightly.  

To all, a Happy Fourth of July holiday and thank you from the bottom of my heart!
