Arrangement of the coins for the photographs is random - we do not pick the best coins and put them on top. Unless otherwise noted, the coins offered are the actual coins in the photograph, coins are unattributed and no additional information about the coins is available. Bulk lots are offered with only a small mark-up over our cost and many are lots we have purchases for our retail store. When we have time, we withdraw an unsold bulk lot, photograph the coins, and add them to the store individually at retail. LARGE LOTS ARE AS IS, NO RETURN.
