Has anyone here inherited a “premium” coin collection?
I was recently speaking with my local coin shop and he said he got in his first serious premium coin collection this year. Usually he gets one in every year but this one was pretty impressive in that most coins were gold and the collection included some 5 figure coins.
The average collection they get is generally under $10000 with lots of the coins just being worth melt value.
He also said that when he gets one of the premium collections it’s almost always the kids selling their fathers collection.
So I was thinking did any of you inherit a “premium/high grade” coin collection?
While I inherited my dads collection in no way was it premium. He had several hundred of dollars in silver coins and a few better grade silver certificates. Not anything to retire on, but it did net me enough to complete a few holes in my collection
So the question is …. Did you get an inheritance in coins and was it a premium set?
