Confirm that the items are gold or silver (a couple of tests)
2. Determine the grade (the percentage of pure gold or silver in the items)
3. Weigh the items to get the amount of pure gold or silver
4. Use the current world price for gold or silver to figure the value of each item
The above constitutes an “appraisal” – an assessment of how much your items are worth and what we would pay. As gold & silver trade experts, we can do this at the counter with you, and it’s something we’re happy to do free of charge, without obligation. Getting an honest value can be very useful for a garage sale or the division of an estate.
As a premier gold and silver trade expert, LC Coins buys items containing those precious metals, among other things. You can sell us jewelry, coins, scrap, dental gold, watches, tableware, such as sterling tea sets. In fact, we buy anything with gold or silver content.
