TURN THIS INTO
Gold and Silver Brokerage:
DON'T SELL YOUR GOLD JEWELRY/COINS OR SILVER FLATWARE/COFFEE OR TEA SETS.
LET US BROKER YOUR PRECIOUS METALS AND DELIVER THEM DIRECTLY TO THE REFINERY, NETTING YOU MUCH MORE $$$!
Do you have gold or a quantity of sterling silver to sell? We deal directly with the refinery and will broker your precious metals for only a 12 1/2% commission. We guarantee that you will receive more money brokering through us than selling your precious metals to any retail buyer! Below is the current "spot" price for precious metals. Spot price is for 100% pure precious metal. *It is important to note that sterling silver is only 92.5% pure silver. 14kt gold is only 58.5% pure gold.
Walk-in Verbal Approximation of Value
For only $10.00 per item, you can bring your item(s) in to our Antique Mall located at 3130 E. Grant Road and we will give you our opinion of value based on our 22 years experience in the antique/appraisal business. This service is only a verbal conveyance of our opinion and does not include on-the-spot internet research or research of our subscription internet data bases. Please note that if we are busy with other retail customers upon your arrival, we will give you our attention as soon as possible.
On-site Verbal Approximation of Value and Consultation
Don't make the mistake of selling a Rembrandt painting for $1.00! Our services include verbal approximations of value before estate sales, yard sales, or heir distributions. Our years of practical experience and formal appraisal training will probably cost you a small fraction of the extra money you'll make after consulting us! We can probably look at your items within our one hour minimum charge.
Over our past 20 years in Tucson, we have sold millions of dollars worth of merchandise. We are each accredited appraisers with formal training, testing and appraisal experience to write professional appraisals for your item(s). Written appraisals are used to obtain insurance coverage, settle insurance claims, estate division, divorce division, charitable donations, etc. We have been formally trained and tested through the International Society of Appraisers and have successfully completed the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice course through the American Association of Appraisers.
We offer, free of charge, verbal approximations of value for charitable organizations that have antiques and collectibles for sale for fund-raising auctions and events. We also donate quality items for charity auctions.
