Question for coin dealers
I have a question for coin dealers on this forum. Or people very familiar with coin dealers.
Any input would be appreciated.
Is it OK to ask a coin dealer to keep an eye out for a coin that I have an interest in?
For example (just an example please no comments on the specifics!) let’s say I’m looking for a 1795 Flowing Hair Dollar in VF20 condition for under $3000.
Is it OK for me to ask a coin dealer to keep his eye out for one?
Or is it too much of a burden and I should focus on what he actually has in stock and if he doesn’t have what I want go to another dealer?
I feel like now that we live in an era of 24/7 worldwide internet access the job of a coin dealer is harder due to competition all over the World (or at least country) to sell for the lowest price.
Maybe coin dealers need to evolve into more of a “service” of catering to individual coin desires & wants similar to a concierge who gets tickets & reservations that others simply cannot. But that’s just me. I may be totally wrong.
