I just received an auction catalog today.
Here's the "Would You" question:
Would you bid on a coin with just a picture of the coin (picture of the coin is NOT in the holder) and a description of the coin?
Most of the coins in this auction have been certified by TPG companies.
The problem is they don't include the cert # of the coin! I have had to call them in previous auctions and ask for the cert# on each of the coins I was interested in. After finally making contact with them they gave me the cert numbers I requested. I have talked to them in the past about adding the cert #s, guess they didn't feel it was necessary!
It's beyond me why they don't include the cert # so you can look up the coin and do your due diligence.
So, I took a quick look and sure enough no cert #s again. There are over 1100 lots in this auction, pretty nice catalog, but it ended up in the trash!
That makes 3 auction houses I won't have anything to do with.
