WHAT THE GOLD SHOP BUYS
We buy old gold, broken gold, silver and/or platinum. Also, watches, rings, necklaces, bracelets, any jewelry, coins (gold and silver). If you have any broken rings, unmatched earrings, knotted and kinked chains and out of style pendants we will buy that too.
Please note that we pay preminums if you sell more than 3 ozs.
3oz to 5oz: I pay 5% of base above.
5oz and above: I pay 10% of base above.
Compare and you will see I pay 1.5 to 10 times local and Internet buyers. For perspective, I pay 1.5 to 2.5 times what local pawn shops pay and up to 10 times what many Internet buyers pay. For every $100 pawn shops pay I pay $150 to $250. And for every $100 Internet buyers pay I pay up to 10 times or $1000. I perform regular surveys to verify these numbers. My best customers are those that have compared prices and service.
I also buy gold coins at 15% below spot. However, I encourage my customers to sell their gold coins directly to the refineries the legit ones like Kitco. They will buy coins directly from the public and pay you the same as they pay me. Therefore, I can add no value for you except to remove the hassle of you selling directly to the refinery. Check out Kitco.com for the latest gold prices and the prices they are paying for gold coins which is normally slightly above spot.
Reputable refineries will not buy scrap directly from the public, so here we can add value.
Note that pawn shops buy gold coins at 30% to 60% below spot and they do not tell you that you can sell directly to the refinery. Greenbrier pawn shop that advertises constantly represents the norm of what most precious metals dealer and pawn shops pay and do. Internet buyers most often pay significantly less (about 10% or $10 for every $100 I pay) and you have no way to verify their evaluation of your precious metals.
I also buy diamonds larger than 1 carat with certificates. Call for estimates
As gold goes up I will pay more since I pay according the NY gold spot market. Don't get ripped off come see me and let me pay you fair market value for your gold. I have a permanent secure and private location.
