It's been some time since we have posted in our blog (months in fact!), so we thought we would give some thoughts and updates of things happening here and in the coin market. Over the last few months, we have been having a major overhaul of the website, which has more to do with update "behind the scenes" items in the website's design and stability than it does in any visual or obvious changes. These things are in their finishing stages, and will be going into effect starting next week if all goes according to plan. We are very happy to have this done, since the site will be more robust in handling our customer's traffic (we've had too many customers on at the same time, which effected the site's performance, and we wanted that fixed!) Also, we have some more tools to help us manage the site better for you our customers. You may see some minor changes around the site, but most of it will be the same or minor improvements, with the checkout process improved, as well as some other small features.
The ANA is coming up in under two weeks, and we are excited to be there to see our customers and hopefully buy and sell some errors. This is a tie for "best error show of the year", with the winter FUN being the contender. Both are excellent shows, though, and we always look forward to them every year. If you are attending the show, stop by our table #806. We will have a large selection of mint errors for sale, and will also be looking to buy anything you have for sale!
Overall the error market has been good. We have been able to offer a lot of fresh material over the last few months, but it has been going into collections pretty quickly. Of course, we try to price all our inventory at the current market values, and so from time to time you will see certain errors go up or down in value, depending on where the market is at at any given time. We will be working hard throughout the rest of the Summer to continue to find as much fresh material as we can, and offer great values so keep an eye out for our "new inventory" email alerts (and if you're not signed up, we recommend you do so since the early bird gets the coin!)
Our most recent update of the website's inventory will be our last until after the ANA in a few weeks. If you don't see the errors you need on the website, send us an email and we will be happy to work with you to find the coins you are looking for. Until next time, have a great Summer everyone, and take time to enjoy your error collections!
