To help area residents discover any unknown treasures they may have sitting in their closets, attics, basements, cupboards, and safe deposit boxes, Liberty Coins in the Frandor Shopping Center is offering Free Appraisals In March. The event will continue through March 30.
Said LCS CEO and owner Tom Coulson, “On almost a daily basis, someone comes to our store and finds out that what they have is worth hundreds to thousands of dollars more than they thought. Not long ago, two brothers brought in a bag of silver coins they inherited from their father, not realizing that there were gold coins at the bottom of the bag. We paid them almost a half million dollars on the spot. When we can put cash in customer pockets today, these discoveries are almost as exciting for our friendly, knowledgeable staff as it is for the owners! By the end of March, we hope to give happy news to hundreds of customers.”
Coulson continued, “Many people are not aware that we offer free oral appraisals on coins, precious metals, jewelry, and many other collectibles. Because of this, we will devote the next few weeks to helping area residents find hidden treasures, identify pieces of modest value, and help them clear out the clutter of other items of no real worth. Also, although we normally charge for providing written appraisals for insurance, estate, and other purposes, we will provide them at no charge to those who request one by calling to make an appointment.”
To commemorate the beginning of Free Appraisals In March, 99.1-FM WFMK’s John “Jukebox Johnny” Robinson will broadcast live from Liberty Coins on Saturday, March 2 from 11 AM to 1 PM.
