Coin Buying Advice for the eBay Marketplace

Rare coin buying on the eBay website has become one of the most important transaction venues for rare coin enthusiasts. Rare coin collectors are buying and selling rare coins through this immense website in unbelievable numbers on a daily basis.

It is common to see more than 400,000 U.S. coins for sale on any given day on the eBay marketplace. In a market of this size, there is a lot more than just common dated coins. On the eBay site, you will find tons of interesting, tough-to-find U.S. coins, with a better overall selection than just about anywhere else, either online or in traditional bricks n mortar stores.

The eBay platform is easy, convenient, and a powerful tool for the coin buying bargain hunter. It is not a stretch to claim that the Internet, in particular eBay, has partially triggered the rising popularity of rare coin collecting that is apparent during the past decade.

Since many of the eBay coin sellers are collectors just like you a lot of them are willing to sell coins at “below book” value because the coins are being offered without the assistance of numismatic professionals (i.e., the “middle man” is cut out). This bodes well for the coin buyer “looking for a good deal”.

As with other kinds of collectibles, there are some risks involved. Thankfully, the vast majority of people on eBay are honest. If this weren't true, eBay would have disappeared long ago, rather than evolving into an icon of modern day American culture.

Follow these simple precautions, and you can avoid potential pitfalls:

Make sure you understand the bidding rules. It is recommended you visit the eBay University Learning Center. Within the Learning Center, you will discover a number of well designed tutorials intended to illustrate how the eBay system operates. Initially give your attention to the buying videos. The lessons are clear to follow. The key point to learn is about the difference between bidding and Buy it Now, maximum bids and how to set limits on what you want to pay in an auction offer. Remember, actions you take while on eBay are legally binding, so be sure to acquaint yourself with the rules before clicking the CONFIRM BID or BUY button.

Know the shipping and return policy of the seller. When reviewing an offer, scroll to the end of the sale item description, to the section on shipping, payment details and goods return policy. Of the disputes that arise on eBay, many of them arise because of misunderstandings on these issues. If you are engaged in buying expensive, rare or otherwise valuable items, it is well advised to buy for some level of insurance. This will be a small cost for the peace of mind it will provide.

Are you uneasy about making payments online? So is eBay. And they have a host of systems in place to make the online shopping experience is safe and secure for both buyers and sellers.

The combination of eBay's Seller Feedback system and Paypal's Buyer Protection Program make the online purchasing experience safe and secure.

Study the Feedback Rating of the item seller. Without the Feedback Rating, the eBay market concept could not function as well as it does. If a seller has more than just a little negative feedback, shy away from that seller. On the other hand, a seller with 10, 000 points and 99.9% positive feedback has a lot of happy customers. The eBay learning center tutorials explain more fully how to evaluate Sellers and utilize the Feedback system.

Do not bother bidding on any rare U.S. coin without a good scanned image. A good seller with coins that deserve a place in your collection will always properly represent them through clear photos and descriptions.

Pricey coins that are Certified pose less risk for the buyer. For example, the most respected grading companies are PCGS and NGC, followed by ANACS and ICG.

At first, eBay may be a bit intimidating, but after you get familiar with the interface, you'll realize how useful eBay can be to the coin hobbyist or serious coin collector.

The above points all bode well for developing a strategy to accumulate rare U.S. coins by utilizing the eBay market.
