I have collected coins for years. I have some fine collector’s items, even some from the 1800s. I have been to a number of Gold and Silver dealers. I tried out Los Angeles Gold & Silver because I had just moved and I was looking for a shop I could trust and frequently go to.
I simply wanted them to evaluate my collection. They charged me a fee for examination and told me that my collection was worth less than half of what a previous, trusted gold dealer had quoted me. I questioned him.
He was rude. His response was to call an old man and say that things are different these days.
I took my collection elsewhere. This establishment is terrible.
