I just recently consigned my coin collection which primarily consisted of silver dollars to Heritage auctions this past summer. I had purchased coins from Heritage for over a decade and after my first couple of purchases from them I became a regular and loyal client. I realized quickly that buying with Heritage was the way to go. I never had any issues ever with them and I made well over a hundred different purchases from them. Also by the way the people that work there are also top notch. So when it came to selling my coin collection I decided they were my first and only choice. They never disappoint. Excellent prices when selling through their auctions and you don’t even have to put any reserves on any coins. Simply the biggest company but more importantly the absolute best. Consign with Heritage when you’re ready to sell.
To get the most amount of money for your coins, you must go to an auction company such as Heritage. It really impressed me.
In arriving at the selection of Auctioneer, ANA has considered primarily the reputation, proficiency, and character of the Auctioneer and its ability to provide personnel of corresponding quality.
Please accept my praise for the manner in which you and the entire Heritage team handled the recent sale of my beloved collection of the 58 varieties of 1794 large cents.
From the moment I decided to sell the collection my decision to employ Heritage Auctions had already been determined following the excellent handling of the 2011 sale of my Large Cent date set; The Al Boka Copperhead Collection.
With the superb catalog, a masterwork prepared by Mark Borckhardt, the sale was destined to meet all of my expectations; that it did, and then some. The catalog will surly become a must-have reference for future 1794 collectors.
The choice of Bob Merrill as auctioneer was a pleasant, unexpected perquisite. Bob is, in my opinion, the best in the business.
Be assured that I would highly recommend Heritage Auctions to any of my associates contemplating the sale of their collections.
It's hard to believe that all my worries about our coin collection are really over. Many, many thanks for all you did to accomplish this. The check arrived and is safely banked.
I am pleased with the process it was way easier than I had thought it would be and I feel confident that my coins are in the right hands. I also want to thank you again for all the time and help you have put forth during the process of getting me to get my coins to you. Now I will just wait and see what happens when the time comes. Thanks also for all the plain directions and descriptions of how it all works as well as what had to be done on my end. Take care.
Heritage Numismatics is a well organized operation, drawing the world's numismatic treasures together, cataloging, then offering them to the collecting public. I've been involved with collecting coins since 1957. It's great doing business with your company.
I purchased 3 Saints over the past week or so (2 from your inventory and 1 from auction) and the service I got from Heritage representatives was simply amazing. I received 2 of the 3 (a 1913-S and 1909/8) and the quality was what I expected from Heritage - excellent. Heritage's pictures of the coins exceed expectations and allow for unregretable purchases. I cannot say enough how much I appreciate Heritage and everything they do for the hobby I love.
When I began considering the sale of my collection of Mercury Dimes, I knew that many dealers would want to handle the transaction - after all, it was assembled with their astute help. Six different auction houses and dealers competed for the right to sell these wonderful coins. In the end, after careful investigation I chose the firm that I thought would do the best job and achieve the highest prices.
"My wisdom in selecting Heritage was confirmed by the unbelievable prices that you realized on my behalf 274% of Bluesheet, totaling $741,155. The results were astonishing - - Heritage sold my coins for double the most optimistic price that I had dreamed of! [Entire Letter]
The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high! And on behalf of the MacDonald family, I must add that the results were also most gratifying. I must also mention the joy with which the family responded to your press releases, advertisements, catalog biography, and even your catalog descriptions. Your comments and presentation paid appropriate tribute to a great collector, and the catalog will stand as a lasting memorial to a great collection. [Entire Letter]
I received my Cincinnati Auction catalog and it is magnificent. I am very pleased with the descriptions and groupings of my coins, and looking forward to this being a great sale.
Greg and Mark,
Let me take a moment to say that I noticed the donation from Heritage to ANA that was listed in the Numismatist. Thank you for your individual dedication to the hobby..., and that of Heritage.
You do an excellent job providing the collector with a great choice of coins.
May I express my appreciation for the fine job you and Heritage did in the sale of my collection at last years A & A and fall Long Beach Shows. Though I was unable to personally attend either sale, I can say otherwise that execution was trouble free from initial viewing of the collection to delivery to wired funds settlement. [Entire Letter]
I want to thank you for all of your assistance relative to my coin collection. You are a real professional. Have a great summer.
Thank you for all of your help and professionalism. We met with Greg today, and sold most of our coin collection to him and your company, including our Stella. We are satisfied with what we received. We will be glad to do business with your company again in the near future and will recommend your company to our friends who collect coins.
Thank you so much for your yeoman effort to showcase the Julius Reiver collection to its greatest advantage. Every department at Heritage performed beautifully, from photography and cataloging to printing and the auction itself. [Entire Letter]
I have now had four successful auctions with Heritage and plan on at least several more with your firm. They have saved me an immense amount of time and effort while obtaining very satisfactory prices for the many and varied coin lots I had. [Entire Letter]
Recently, Heritage Numismatic Auctions, Inc. completed the sale of rare coins and gold bullion seized as a result of a dea investigation. I would like to take this opportunity to express dea's appreciation for the outstanding work and expertise your office provided in handling this sale. As you are well aware, the estimated direct sale value of these coins was placed at 1.7 million dollars. As a result of Heritage Numismatic Auctions, Inc., the coins actually brought in excess of 2 million dollars, a quarter of a million dollars in excess of the direct sale value. Needless to say, after working with you and your people and witnessing the sale firsthand, I have no doubt this success is attributable to your professionalism in the management and promotion of this valuable consignment.
When we were initially considering how best to liquidate these coins, we spoke to Lee Schaaf at the FDIC. Your expertise came highly recommended. Now I know why. The careful handling of the consignment, the energetic promotion to collectors and dealers through advertising and direct mail, the smooth organization of the sale and, of course, the stunning results stand as a testament that your reputation is well deserved. The next time another liquidation like this one comes along, I will certainly recommend Heritage Numismatic Auctions, Inc. with complete confidence. Thank you for a thoroughly diligent and professional job. [Entire Letter]
What a great choice we made. The publicity your marketing generated was fabulous, and your internet system is beyond belief. Over half the coins had already met or exceeded our expectations before the floor session even started! At your Central States convention Signature auction itself, over a half-million dollars worth of our coins found new homes, shattering numerous price records in the process. Then, after the sale, you helped us even further, and now the entire collection has been dispersed. Perfectionists are never easy to please, and we're no exception. But frankly, we are thrilled. [Entire Letter]
Hello, thank you so much, everything went great with Heritage selling the coins. I am pleased with how much the coins sold for.
Regarding the New Make an Offer beta program, just stumbled across this feature in the comic section. All I have to say is
WOW!! This will be a game-changer for you. A brilliant move.
Due completely to Heritage's thoroughly diligent and professional management and promotion of the collection, the faraday Collection stirred national attention among numismatists and the auction results brought a gross value greater than that last estimated by the experienced collector, David M. faraday. Moreover, Heritage identified a very rare coin from the faraday collection and featured it on the cover of the convention catalog. Later, that coin became the piece that brought the greatest “hammer price” and applause from the admiring audience. Furthermore, Heritage's additional promotion of major rare and quality pieces from the faraday Collection created supplementary recognition in the Coin World
and The Numismatist
trade publications. [Entire Letter]
On behalf of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, I wish to extend our appreciation to you for over $925,000.00 realized from the above subject auction. This amount realized was approximately $110,000.00 more than we anticipated. [Entire Letter]
It is with a sense of tremendous gratitude that I wish to convey my sincere appreciation to you for the manner in which you managed the recent sale of my currency collection. [Entire Letter]
I recently consigned a coin to the Heritage Signature Sale in Long Beach, California on September 23, 2005. I consigned my coin and worked with Sam Foose, Consignment Director. Sam was very helpful and understood my goals. I have worked with Sam in the past. He is a knowledgeable and great guy to work with. I can't say enough about the man.
The coin I consigned to the signature sale sold for over double the price of my reserve. When I heard the hammer price of the coin, I could not believe it!
I highly recommend Heritage Auctions, Inc. to anyone consigning coins. Their catalogues are superior in quality and design; the history of the consigned coins is excellent, interesting and informative and the Internet is very helpful! I feel Heritage Auction, Inc. has some of the best people in the industry working for the company, from the management down to those helping you view the coins.
The winning price has been called on the final coin of the last sale My one remaining need is to try to put into words the gratitude of my family for all you and Heritage have done for us over the past two years. I would start with our first conversation when I decided to approach the idea of selling my collection, and how you eased me into it by presenting just enough details to be comforting and enticing, stopping well short of baffling and intimidating. But I guess I should really go back much further and pay tribute to the many years of association we had during my active collecting period. I always knew, because of Heritage’s reputation, my friendship with you, Todd, and Him, and the way I was treated, that if the unimaginable – a sale of all my coins – would occur, it would be Heritage that would handle it.
Following your presentation of ideas for the sale should I decide to go ahead with it – the four spaced auctions with the “sets” coins placed among the first three and the last containing dupes and miscellaneous pieces; your plans for organizing the coins for transport to Dallas; marketing and publicity programs you would undertake – Anne, Eugene, and I felt perfectly at ease with the concept of the sale and even more importantly the emotional decision itself. Once made, the process that followed was smooth and fun, and before we knew it there was the momentous day in the bank vault with Mark and the heroics of inventory and shipping. Sessions with your kind and skillful publicity colleagues resulted in a truly surprising and wonderful magazine article, the coins were showcased at national numismatic events, article followed article in the coin-world press, the first beautiful catalog began to take shape, and before we knew it Gardner and I came off flawlessly and successfully in May 2014.
Gardner II, III, and IV all showed the same impeccable standards of Heritage’s professionalism as did the first, along with what I believe are distinguishing hallmarks of your firm – the warmth and consideration accorded our family and the respect shown to my collection by everyone with whom we came into contact. You have not just a fine firm but a collection of outstanding individuals whom we consider ourselves privileged to know and now consider friends.
From me, and from my heart, I just say thank you for a great job of bringing my collecting life to a gratifying close.
Both my contacts were professional & courteous. I found it reassuring that your appraisal of my coin was realistic.
Great coins, lovely catalogs, accurate description and grades (whether raw or slabbed). If you cannot view the coins personally, you can still bid with confidence, something you cannot say about all competitors.
Jim - Thanks very much for your email. You are runnning a first class organization at Heritage so make sure everyone keeps up the good work. When I do sell my collection I look forward to seeing it presented in a Heritage catalogue.
I cannot thank you enough for the time you took examining and inventorying the widely diverse inventory. The fact that you sold it all" right down to the cheap bulk lots and modern and foreign, and weren't just interested in the best pieces, speaks volumes to Heritage's reputation as the best in numismatics. I might also add that the promotion of the sale was excellent, which was surely a contributing factor in the prices realized from the sale exceeding even your presale estimate by 10-15%." [Entire Letter]
Thanks for dropping me a line and giving me an update! I hope all is well with you! I'm very pleased with how you run the auctions and am certain to consign coins at future events. Thanks again for everything!
I have been very pleased with the quality of coins offered and the efficiency and courtesy of your staff. Keep up the good work.
You will never be ripped off, scammed, or knowingly sold fakes on Heritage's ongoing online coin auctions, and sometimes the deals are amazing! One of my favorite ways to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon is to cyber-cherrypick through Heritage's wonderful, clear, huge images, looking for the overlooked minor doubled die, repunched mintmark, or other variety. As if current auctions weren't enough, Heritage has a free online archive of more than a million coin images! You can do price research, grade comparisons, you name it (heck, I could almost write a whole article about the ways to use Heritage's Web site!).
Anne and I want to thank you for the professional handling of the auction of our California national currency collection. We could not be more proud of it especially based on the truly wonderful catalog you produced. The response and comments we have recieved (and are still recieving) make us very proud... Last but not least we were very pleased with the monetary results of the auction. [Entire Letter]
The catalogs are beautifully done and are a very valuable instrument for keeping up with what is happening in the coin world.
The humble lots consigned to your Bullet sale (by me) were pleasantly, courteously, and professionally accepted by your staff.
As I told you yesterday during our telephone conversation, I am terminating my coin collecting after years of enjoyment. As you know, Heritage Auctions played an important role part in my buying and selling of my coins. The beautiful books listing the coins in an upcoming auction were always a pleasure to peruse. The bidding process was easy do and I always enjoyed the live auction on the web site.
The sale of some of my collection was an easy process, especially with your help. Heritage Auctions provides collectors a reliable service and is a useful way to manage their collections.
Just want let you how pleased my family and I are about the outcome of the auction. The results exceeded our expectations by approximately 50%, and we are so happy that we went with Heritage Auction for the sale of the coins. I also want to thank you for sending me the two catalogues of the auction.
Thanks so much for all you did! I was very pleasantly surprised by what the coin sold for. Received the check last week, my kitchen redecorating starts next week. It was a pleasure doing business with you.
Thank you for your help with my recent sale. Heritage Auctions was great to work with, as a first time seller you helped step by step to guide me to an extremely successful sale. The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability, support and knowledge were exceptional. After the sale, payment was on schedule as promised and the whole experience was truly first rate. I look forward to working with Heritage in the future and again thank you for all your help.
I want you to know how much I appreciated the honor that all of your work bestowed on my father. The photographs, the write-up about the collection, and the bids received would have made him very proud. Dad predicted that his coins would command a premium; they did, and I am very happy with the results. [Entire Letter]
Special thanks for the handling the estate of my beloved grandfather, Jack L. Klausen. His passing was a confusing and challenging time. As you know, my grandfather had been a coin dealer for over 40 years. Fortunately, for us, he had planned to place his collection with Heritage in his remaining days.
From the consigning with Bob Merrill, the cataloging by Bob Korver, to the personal updates from you, I felt comfortable with the handling of such an important collection. The advertising was ample and the catalog descriptions from the legendary pioneer gold expert, Donald. H. Kagin, PhD, spoke volumes of the quality that Heritage had to offer.
The auction results exceeded our expectations and the settlement was prompt. I would not hesitate to use your services again or recommend them to someone else.
Thank you for your note and the confirmation that everything we consigned has been sold and the account can be closed. My brother Jim and I agree that you and Heritage did a good job for us on the liquidation of our father's coin collection. He spent a lifetime amassing that collection but, had we endeavored to sell it without your support, it would have taken us at least 10 lifetimes, i.e. it would have been impossible. With best regards and much appreciation.
Thank you, Heritage Auctions, for your service and dependability. Sam Foose accurately evaluated my coins for sale. The coins realized close to all his forecasts. Heritage Auctions is an honest, fair company. My trust in them is based on their keeping promises and following through on all my concerns. The business practices of Heritage Auctions are amazing. Payment for realized prices was sent as promised. And a full description and photo was available on the extensive web site. Everyone at Heritage Auctions was knowledgable and friendly. I recommend Heritage Auctions to handle and sell coins.
Hello, I was very pleased when you handled the sale of my husband’s coin collection. I hope all is well with you and your family.
On behalf of our Central States Family, I wish to express our sincere appreciation for a great auction held at our 63rd Anniversary Convention in Columbus, Ohio, last week. As your sale totals attest, expectations were exceeded in every respect. Our Board voted to negotiate another three-year contract with your firm for upcoming auctions. It has been a genuine pleasure to be associated with your excellent company. Best wishes for the future.
Six auctions have completed, comprising about 25% of the estimated value of my consignment. I am quite pleased, as results are roughly 15% ahead of my expectations. While I do not expect to remain at +15% while the more valuable coins are auctioned at FUN, I am confident that I made the right decision to work with you and Heritage. And so I want to express my gratitude for all of your help. Thanks so much.
Overall, I think you are doing an excellent job, particularly with your Signature sales.
This is just a note to thank you for all your help. As I told you, I received the first check today. I want especially to thank you for your courtesy and professionalism. I felt taken care of. I am pretty sure I’ll continue to collect coins in the future, and I just want you to know that working with you and Heritage has been a very gratifying experience. I’ll let you know when I receive the remainder. Thank you so much.
Thanks for the note. Everything has gone just as you outlined at our meeting so far. We actually attended the ANA meeting and were there when the 1850 double eagle was auctioned. We also followed the bidding online yesterday here in Salt Lake for the other 3 coins - great fun. Prices realized met or exceeded our expectations. Thanks so much for your help.
Total proceeds from the sale of my collection were only a few dollars short of equaling Gray Sheet" ask! An amount significantly in excess of what a dealer would offer. In fact, even after commissions, the net proceeds were far more than I expect a dealer would have offered. As a result, I believe using Heritage was one of the smartest financial decisions I ever made." [Entire Letter]
Today I received the settlement check for the University coins sold at the Long Beach auction. I want to thank you and Heritage for the services provided above and beyond those one would expect from an auction house. [Entire Letter]
Heritage did everything splendidly to ensure that the coins would bring the best prices possible in the public market. In spite of foreshortened deadlines, the full color promotional brochure was exemplary and the catalog a front-runner among all the coin auction catalogs we have ever seen. Both color and black and white photographs were of the highest clarity and descriptions (with certifications) well-complimented the plates to give potential buyers the best possible information to weigh their bids. [Entire Letter]
I just wanted you to know how thankful I am for all of you and the whole Heritage team that made it all happen. My Confederate Cent sold in Orlando as you know. It was hard to part with but with my cancer coming back I needed to raise the funds to put my last boy through college at SMU and you all did it. The write up was the finest in the history of the Confederate cent!!!!! I have never read such a thorough and well done piece. Thanks for using all your catalogues from the late 1800's to research this!! The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December. Tell Noah Fleisher his writing was very nicely done on the ads also will you as I dont have his email address. He made me want to bid on my coin and buy it back!! Every thing was perfectly done. Again thanks for helping Leslie and I get our last boy through college.
It was a pleasure doing business with Heritage in Indianapolis. I look forward to your future sales.
Hi Mark and Todd,
I wanted to thank you both for all the great work on the auction of my Walkers. It was a long, nerve-wracking process but Heritage was competent, professional and responsive at all points.
Sarah in New York and Kim Cook were both great in their roles and I wanted to make sure you are aware of it. Thanks again and I look forward to working with you again.
Rock & Roll with Heritage into the 21st century of numismatics.
I received and returned the docu sign. You guys are top shelf for professionalism. Miles ahead of your competitors.
I'd just like to send my appreciation for the superb customer service I received from your employees at this weekend's show. I participated in the Bullet Auction on Saturday and your staff was most helpful and hospitable. On Friday, I had a collection to sell and availed myself of your free appraisal". Your staff was very helpful and gave pretty good insight. Unfortunately, I had promised someone that I would give him first crack at the collection and we had agreed to some preset parameters. Had I not given my word to that gentleman, I would have probably gone directly back to your tables and consigned them to Heritage. I've participated in several of your Internet auctions and bought some coins from Paul. He was great at followup. Lastly, I'd really like to send my apprecation to Marti in your credit department. I was not fully prepared when I showed up to auction and didn't have all the information I needed. She has been exceptionally helpful today in helping me get it straightened out. Just thought I'd let you know that your customer service is great."
Hey hope you had a prosperous trip thank you for having Rusty call and confirm my bids. It is a pleasure working with you personally and with all your associates. Your company enables me to have the utmost trust and confidence in dealing with a coin Co. I hope we can continue building our relationship in the future. Again my sincere thanks and be well.
I just returned from Christmas vacation and I am in receipt of the check for the Charles Schulz ... what a very nice pre$ent ... perfect size and just the right color!
"Thank you so much for all your help. The experience was very good and truly effortless ... you made it so easy for me and I sincerely appreciate your time and help. And who knows, perhaps in the future I may have some other items of interest for another Heritage Auction..."
To Whom it may Concern,
Just wanted to say that I have been very pleased with all of my purchases & transactions with Heritage. Your staff have been very helpful & my purchases are always mailed ASAP. I have never been disappointed with your customer service & have been a Heritage customer for approximately 20
Thank You, Monte Rosson
I was pleased at the results the anacs 1934 s vam 3 selling for more than $3000 was a shock and the eagles also did better than I expected. I could not have done better anywhere else. Thank you for your help.
Wow! I'm thrilled. The total hammer price is far beyond my initial hopes and expectations. You and your colleagues at Heritage could not have packaged the collection in a more professional and attractive way to buyers. I cannot thank you enough, but I'll try! All the Best, Robert
I watched the live stream of the Platinum Night auction with my wife yesterday evening, and we were happy to see the enthusiastic bidding on our 1842 Half Cent. It did seem to draw more attention than the previous lots (or the competing Braided Hair half cents!) so we consider it a success. Thank you for your support and counsel during the process and I continue to be impressed by the skill and expertise of the Heritage Auction staff, as well as the clever web site.
The HNAI staff does an excellent job, and they are a pleasure to deal with.
I wanted to express my THANKS" for sending the catalogues. I will be on the look out for a hardbound copy of your first sale, and I wish you and HNAI well with the continuation of the same!"
I like the phone" book coin catalogs and am very pleased with the staff's performance. I will continue bidding on your sales."
Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions. [Entire Letter]
Just one last thanks for your help with the $100 note from Brownwood, TX. The check arrived this morning. I really enjoyed surprising my mother-in-law. The look of astonishment on her face was worth any trouble I might have gone through. Some days are pretty good!:)
Thanks for the note. I did see our consigned coins on the web numerous times. I couldn't ask for more with respect to Heritage's marketing effort. The coin auction catalog was very nice as well. Hope to conduct more business down the road.
Thanks for checking in - everything went well and was in line with our expectations. The process from start to finish was easy to use and professional, and we were pleased with the auction results. We will be using HA in the future for some of our numismatic sales, thanks for all the help and guidance!
The coins arrived today. Thank you very much for the special service. You are one of the reasons Heritage is such a great company to work with. Very Special!
I have been very satisfied with the performance and the variety of coins offered in your sales.
I thought the auction catalog I just received with the silver dollar collection was by far the best you ever put out. It is great as a reference manual as it contains tons of useful historical info on the series themselves. The graphics are original and excellent, and everything is in full color. did the consignor subsidize the cost of this publication? If not, why the special treatment...and how can you afford to show so few coins on a page and even the inexpensive ones in full color? Hopefully all of your future sales can look like this...the catalog rocks!!!
RE: 1943 Steel Cent. Thank you very much for your reply and more so for the history. My mother will be disappointed she does not have the rare coin but also interested in the history. It was just that report that you mentioned that got my mom so excited. Again, thank you for the reply and the education. You were not the only person I mailed, but you were the only answer I received, this speaks volumes for your character. Thank You So Much.
Dearest Heritage Auctions,
I wish to thank you for everything. I can not imagine getting better treatment, from beginning to end, anywhere else.
This experience felt like an alliance with friends who happen to be professionals. I worked with a very special group. They, and I can easily assume, all their company, are personable, professional and thoroughly knowledgeable.
This is an important process. Being professional, when handling your precious property, is paramount, and they are. Everything is organized. They’ve done this many times and do it well. These are hands I trust.
As for numbers, they will weigh in on the conservative side for auction results. This is a good thing so you won’t be let down. In reality, no one can predict an auction.
Heritage Auctions is very well keyed into the evolving market place, what better exposure can anyone ask for? With detailed personal attention given to placement, advertising, descriptions and photography, the end result in hammer prices was excellent and far exceeded our expectations.
With deepest gratitude and appreciation,
We wish you continued success,[Entire Letter]View Collection
My impressions of the Heritage organization are as follows: professional, knowledgeable, commitment to get best marketing strategy, organized, informative, straightforward, adaptive to clients' needs. Really an effortless way to sell one's coins and still reap their current value.
I would like to express my appreciation to you for your assistance in the sale of my coin collection which included the Lord St. Oswald, MS65, 1795 Half Dollar. Your guidance as to which coins to certify and then which coins to resubmit were certainly among the most important contributing factors to the strong prices realized for the collection. [Entire Letter]
Selling the White rose Collection was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us. If/when you are considering selling your treasured collection, it would be in your best interest to consider Heritage. Heritage is truly nonpareil!! [Entire Letter]
