What percentage of melt should I expect to get from a pawn shop for US Gold Coin jewelry
My ex-wife received from her mothers estate some US gold coin jewelry. There are 2 1/4 ounce US modern gold coins in heavy 14k gold chains and mounts. 5 1/10 ounce US modern gold coins in a 14k bracelet. All coins are in mounts and not soldered to the chains. There is an older 5 dollar gold piece in a 14k mount with 14k chain. All together this is a pretty good handful of gold but I don't have a clue what a pawn shop usually pays for this sort of stuff. I know now to go to a "we buy gold" place or a jewelry fast fix it place, and don't really have a good feel for jewelry stores.
Just looking for some best guess. We will probably take the stuff in on Friday for an offer. If I don't think it is high enough I'll buy the stuff myself and just add it to the rest of the stash but I'll pay considerably more than I think they will offer.
