Estate Sales

One source of rare coins is estate sales. Some collectors, especially collectors with "small" collections have poor records of their collections. Usually, they have one or two really good coins, and the rest are not so rare. If there are coins at the auction, go early enough to inspect them carefully. Make a list of what you want to bid on, and how high you are willing to bid. There may not be any other collectors there, so always start very low, you can always go higher if you need to. Never tell anyone which coins interest you the most. :)
