Do You Have Unwanted Collectibles?

Posted on October 10th, 2015 by Joe G

Unwanted Collectibles

If you are like a lot of unwilling collectors, you probably have some old boxes sitting around with items that you know have real value, but you have no idea how to go about turning them into cash. These items may be things you have gathered throughout the years and simply no longer have room to display, or you have developed new interests, leaving your old treasures to gather dust. Perhaps you are not a collector at all, but have acquired some family heirlooms that hold no real sentimental value for you.

Many people are surprised to discover that there is often someone desperately searching for the very items they are shuffling from room to room, sliding under the bed or stuffing in the back of the closet. Why not turn your unwanted items into cash you can use, and make someone else happy in the process?


What it’s Worth?

One of the main reasons people hang on to collectibles that they no longer need or want is that they are unsure of the value and do not want to be taken advantage of. Unfortunately, this mindset can result in the items getting lost or broken, or simply remaining in a shoebox somewhere, unappreciated and gathering dust.
The best way to make sure you realize the true value of these pieces (and create a bit of extra room for yourself in the process) is to bring them in to a trusted professional for a free appraisal. There is no one more experienced or qualified than the reputable team at Chicago Gold Gallery to help you discover the hidden treasure in your home.

Customer Testimonial

Had a Great Experience

I have dealt in coins and metals since the 80s. Had dealings with many dealers. Got scammed by a few. Chicago Gold is the only one I would recommend to my family or friends. Have your valuables appraised by them before you sell.

I'll be back

Cashed in some silver coins and received a very fair exchange. Joe and Chris, were very friendly, and comfortable to deal with. Came back with some jewelry, and received a rough appraisal...again no pressure.
