    Everything I have purchased has been of the exact coin. They may sell more modern stuff with a stock photo?

    There listings on ebay say most are stock photos.

    They do sell with stock photos but they will put up a picture of a coin that you are wanting so you can see it. Just keep calling them and someone there will answer the phone. I used to deal with them a lot as they are just down the street from my house and just had them put up new picture of a coin I was interested in just the other day. Unfortunately I don't deal with them so much as I used to because of the tax situation.

    Good luck to you

    Haven't bought anything from them in a while but when I did I received what was in the photo.

    If things are still the same the storefront is by appointment only. I bought a really really nice 1951 P 66 Red from them.

    Every certified coin I've bought from their main website matched the photo.

    I can't make that statement about their eBay listings, as I've never purchased their material there.

    Good luck,

    That's if they haven't sold 1 before in the same grade! I absolutely disagree with stock photos and refuse to use them. You would be surprised how many people on ebay ask if I use stock photos....even on slabbed coins with the slab pictured along with the cert # listed!

    L & C Coins - I have had several perfectly fine recent transactions with them. No problems.

    I've bought coins with them twice. I would recommend them.

    Over the past 16+ yrs, I've bought several coins from LCcoins and I've never had a single problem at all.

    I've bought from them... always certified examples. Every coin I've bought had the correct image paired to it when they were selling it.

    Some of the best to deal with in my book.

    They use stock photos for less expensive coins.

    I have dealt with them for years and they are good honest people.
    I highly recommend them.

    Very much so. They just need to invest in a set of ring lights for photos 😉
