Since 1968

1. My word is my bond and my funds are instantly available. If we say we have a deal, I’ll back it up with an immediate payment as soon as I take possession of your coins. I’m easy to work with - none of those silly age-old tactics of browbeating you or tales of a weak market (that’s a laugh) or downplaying your coins.​


2. Funds are always available. No partial payments or consignments unless you prefer it that way. If your coins are worth a few thousand dollars or six figures, I’m a ready buyer.

3. I’ll work on a fair margin. I don’t need to make a "home run" on your collection. Allow me a working profit and we can do business.​

4. If you have some better coins with your common stuff, I’ll buy it ALL. This will save you time from offering coins to two or three buyers. I can purchase anything from an American colonial coin to the latest U.S. issues.

​5. If you are not in the Kansas City area, we can work out a deal whereby you can mail your coins to me for an instant offer. If you don’t like my price, I’ll immediately pay to have everything returned via insured mail. Or I’ll fly to buy if your collection has enough value to warrant the expense & difficulty of traveling. I only ask that you are really ready to sell and not just looking for a free appraisal. I don’t expect a guarantee from you, only a fair chance to purchase your coins.

6. I’ve been buying & selling rare coins since the 1950’s & have owned my own company since 1968. As you can easily see, I’m not one of the newcomers in the market. If you want to deal with one of the old-line dealers who understands your dilemma of letting these “old friends” go and respects the value of your coins, contact me.

Selling Your Coins

What Will I Buy?

Let’s face it, you can sell your old coins to a thousand rare coin companies.Everyone claims they will pay “top dollar”, so why should you sell to Fred Sweeney Rare Coins? Allow me to offer a few reasons:


























What about auctions? You may have seen ads extolling prices for coins that have been auctioned for astronomical prices. This may be true for the crème-de-la-crème, but what about the pedestrian coins? Unless you know which coins to auction, it could lead to a disappointment. Remember, it isn’t unusual for 10,000 coins (or more) to be sold by auction houses every month (not counting eBay)! As you can see, it’s easy to be lost in the shuffle. Also, did you know that a large percentage of the buyers are dealers purchasing for resale? Remember, you are charged an auction fee for consigning. Think about it, then decide if you want to take control of the sale of your coins or find out about their value after they are auctioned.
