Welcome to my Neutral Numismatic Dealers/Traders Page!!!!

This page is always under construction.

In every hobby, there is a share of good dealers and a share of unsavory, unscrupulous and bad dealers and also a share of neutral dealers as well, where no one can speak either or bad about those types of dealers, or where there is no known opinion, or where there are mixed reviews about those dealers. Of course, using those 'neutral' dealers involves some type of risk-taking, so if you decide to do business with dealers listed on this page, just be careful, and be vigilant.

The rules for this list are:

  1. Any dealer who has a mixed record on file, will be listed here.
  2. Any dealer who is listed here that improves his/her rating significantly will be removed from this list and be placed in the Good Dealers List.
  3. Any dealer who is listed here that worsens his/her rating significantly will be removed from this list and be placed in the Bad Dealers List.

If you like to say anything about any of the dealers on this web page, e-mail me and your name/email will not be disclosed when I publish your comment on a page linked to this one.

A star before the name of the dealer means I have done business with that dealer in question previously.

For the Offenses:

  1. Bad turnaround time for delivery of merchandise/refund
  2. Reneging on a deal -- It can be any of these below:
    1. Not sending money to the other party for the coin(s)/note(s) that s/he bought or won in an auction.
