+++After two Saturdays of playing catch-up with my collection
, after NYINC and other shows, I send a shout-out to Forum
1. Professionalism. Two or three recent orders ( I had
a lot of catch-up) were shipped immediately and packed pristinely. As always.
2. Pristine? Yes, I usually have to re-cover or wrap books and catalogs, but Forum
uses library quality
wrap and better-than-I-can neatness.
3. Coins are accurately described --I usually copy and paste Forum
's notes into my database.
sends coins in flips
that I have never had
to swap out. I have to do that routinely for much larger auction
houses using poly-razzamatazz flips
5. Technology: Forum
not only supports this Board, but is near the top of technical presentation. I recently dealt with a really nice dealer, but so low tech we might have well used post cards.Also dealt with a big auction
house with a phone app that nearly almost worked but not quite. My only tech issue with Forum
is that you can't display your password. I doubt Putin is phishing me. So far.
6. Customer support - you don't get an acknowledgement, you get an answer.
7. This discussion board
-- have not found its equal.
So, in this increasingly slab-happy, app-happy, high fee hobby, I am glad Forum
found and provides a balance point.
