Have you ever wondered what those old silver coins in your coffee can were worth? When was the last time you even pulled them from your closet or attic? Well now is the time to begin your hunt because the American Coin Buyers Guild is currently in Sweetwater in search of the rarest coins in the world!
The ACBG has recently uncovered some rare coins that could be hiding in a closet or attic near you. 1894S Barber dime sold for a whopping 1.9 million dollars. A gold coin collection uncovered in a small town in North Carolina sold for $120,000. A penny was even recently sold for over $300 at a show in Georgia.
Sweetwater is the current stop for the ACBGâ€™s world tour. During this event at the Hampton Inn & Suites, collectors are hoping to see items such as coins and paper currency issued prior to 1965, gold items including class rings, mismatched earrings, broken necklaces, gold coins and bullion. These items are highly sought after by collectors from around the world.
These collectors are very serious about their hobby; so serious that they will pay a lot of money for the items they are looking for. Nearly all coins, vintage jewelry, bullion, Kruggerands, paper currency from the early 1900s and 1800s are being sought. The ACBG is a place where anyone in the community can connect with collectors from around the globe. Their experts make offers based on what collectors are willing to pay. Then when someone decides to sell, they get paid on the spot and our experts send the item to the collector at their expense.
Whether you have an old Morgan silver dollar, blanket bill, pocket watch or just a class ring from when you were in high school, bring it down to the show and find out what itâ€™s worth and possibly even get paid for it right on the spot. Donâ€™t have a Morgan dollar, or Kruggerand? No problem, the ACBG even purchases gold items. If you have mismatched ear rings, a broken necklace, or even costume jewelry, they have the resources to pay top dollar for gold and silver items.
The American Coin Buyers Guild will be in Sweetwater until Friday and they are open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. until Thursday each day and will stay Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
