Foreign Coins
To Order Call
March Issue . 2010,

Springtime in Baltimore at the Whitman Coin Expo is always a highly anticipated event for Albanese Rare Coins.  We have so many clients and friends that come by the table to see us, and who doesn't enjoy Maryland Crab-cakes!  If you haven't stopped in to introduce yourself and view our inventory please plan on doing so. We currently set up at Table 857.  We love to meet new clients and are usually given the opportunity to see coins that you have brought to "show off". 


It seems like it has been ages since we have returned from a coin show with a bevy of new coins.  Most collectors and dealers are holding on to great coins, the soft market conditions being the reason.  We search and work very diligently to acquire a handful of coins to please our clients, but are not able to secure as many coins as we would like.  We have wantlists for CAC coins, and other coins that are impossible to fill. 


When we are able to find that very special piece and it is truly irreplaceable ....please be advised... that coin is worth more that the lowest auction record you can find this year!  We strive to acquire coins that are truly special and we do not pay rock bottom prices for these gems.  We have found that paying a little extra for a coin that is PQ or BURSTING with eye-appeal will pay off when you sell.  We pride ourselves on selling coins that are cream of the crop and when your collection is sold you will be rewarded for your careful buying habits.


Please look over our Website, we do have some new coins including an 1876 20cent piece in PR66 that is gorgeous, some new key date material including a 1909-S VDB in 65RB and a 1955 DD PCGS64RB.  Also, we have acquired some early $5 gold that is off the charts in terms of eye-appeal.  There is no better time to put back some coins, as years roll by we will look at 2010 as an excellent buying opportunity!

Our Warmest Regards,
 The Staff of Albanese Rare Coins

(Upcoming Shows Link) If there are any last minute “wants” please let us know. Keep an eye for the “market insight” after the show for an in depth write up on how the market is doing and where it’s going.
