ANNUAL BLACK FRIDAY SALE SHOULD BE BEST EVER!
Nov. 23, 2016 - It's hard to believe that the holidays are upon us. It seems that every year we ponder where the time went. Perhaps, it is a coefficient of getting older. Whatever the case, Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and once again, here we are!
As most of our readers are only too aware, the holidays signify two distinctly different things to us, both intertwined. First and most importantly, regardless of faith or denomination, this is a time of year to give thanks for all that we have. Hopefully, if you are reading this, you have your health and your family, both of which are priceless. Secondly, we also use this period to thank you, our customers, for your loyalty and patronage throughout the year. We know that you have numerous choices to source your coin and collectables needs, so that fact the you have chosen The Reeded Edge is humbling, and we are gracious for the opportunity to serve you. Accordingly, we feel it only appropriate to say thank you, and what better way to do so than by saving you some money?
Beginning tomorrow morning and concluding Monday, November 28, The Reeded Edge will conduct our 26th Annual Black Friday Coin and Collectables SALE. The savings will be significant and store wide. To get a full preview, and begin enjoying your savings early, please click HERE. Most items are one-of-a-kinds, so to avoid disappointment, we suggest that you get your order in early.
Next up for The Reeded Edge will be The Houston Money Show of the Southwest. Located at the George Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston, this is the last major national coin show of the year. This year, both Rob and Robbie will be representing The Reeded Edge from Thursday, December 1st through Saturday, December 3rd. The guys will have thousands of U.S. coins with them, including the bulk of our certified inventory. This is always a solid show, both from a buying and selling perspective. We will be located at our usual spot, on the immediate left at the front entrance of the bourse floor. This year, however, we have an expanded table presence, so stop by Table T-1 to say hello, and hopefully conduct some business. Look for the large "BUYING, BUYING BUYING" sign as you enter the show, and Rob and Robbie should not be far behind.
The Reeded Edge's emphasis is still focused on BUYING. We continue to seek out all worthwhile numismatic material. If the coin market lacks the steam that some of our fellow wholesale partners have been alleging, apparently they forgot to send the guys that memo. If you have any fresh or interesting coins for sale, please stop by our table next week at Houston, or if that is not possible, call either Rob @ 240-422-0118 or Robbie @ 301-876-1332 on their cells, or in the office @ 301-724-0400. We love fresh material, and our aggressive offers will definitely reflect that.

The Reeded Edge Launches our 5th Annual Toys for Kids Christmas Celebration with The Salvation Army
December 16, 2015 - 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. Five 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 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.
Stolen Coin From the Baltimore Coin Show
September 9, 2014 - The Reeded Edge had a 1927-S Buffalo Nickel, PCGS MS-64, #3962.64/30179690 stolen at July 8th's Whitman Baltimore Coin Show. The coin is a golden white with nice luster and relatively clean surfaces. Originally purchased out of the Heritage June Long Beach auction, this piece is well archived, complete with high resolution photographs. It has a few very distinctive markings, and would be easy to identify in or out of its original holder. A "no questions asked" reward is being offered for its return. Any help from our customers or fellow dealers in recovering this coin is greatly appreciated.
Approval Service Available to Reeded Edge Customers
April 7, 2014 - As you peruse our webstore, you may notice ON HOLD next to the listing of a particular coin. This, amongst other things, could indicate that the coin is out ON APPROVAL to one of our customers. This allows the customer to examine the coin before making payment. For our well established clients, approvals are a preferred way of conducting business. For those not familiar with an approval service, here is how it works: The first step is to build a business relationship with us or any other recognized rare coin firm. If your previous business is with other firms, we ask you to provide three different credit references of dealers that have extended you credit in the immediate past. If your business is in-house, we will evaluate the nature, frequency and dollar amount of your business, and make a credit decision accordingly. Once established, you may use this privilege indefinitely. This gives you the ability to get the coin in-hand, examine it in the privacy of your own home and/or office for 24 hours, and then make your buying decision. This is a great option, and one that MANY of our regular customers take advantage of. Please also note, our approval service is not just for coins. It extends to any item on the webstore with a retail value of $1000.00 or more, including currency, vintage toys, political items, documents & autographs, exonumia and stamps. Please call our offices @ 301-724-0400, Rob on his cell @ 240-422-0118 or Robbie on his cell @ 301-876-1332 to discuss this service further.
July 5, 2014 - 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!
