ToughCOINS® is happy to offer appraisals for matters of probate, establishing insurable value, or simply to satisfy your curiosity about the value of your US coins.
Accurate appraisals require the examination of coins in person. Long-distance estimates based only on photos and / or descriptions can be provided free of charge, but with no commitment to accuracy.
In cases where a firsthand examination is required to produce an accurate written appraisal, ToughCOINS® charges a fee of $80 hourly for time taken from our normal activities, or $25 per $1000 appraised, whichever is greater. In addition to the appraisal fee, we require reimbursement of travel expenses at $0.55 per mile. Requests for long distance travel should be justifiable, and should be accompanied by a list and / or photos of coins to be appraised.
We will gladly waive our appraisal fee for coins which we purchase. If, 30 days following delivery of your appraisal, we have not purchased the appraised coins, we will invoice you appropriately.
