Collectors’ show in Lufkin this week

Today through Saturday, National Coin Collectors Association will assist local residents with evaluating all types of US and foreign coins and currency. Anyone interested in selling their items can be connected with member- collectors wanting to purchase coins for their collections. The process is free and there is no obligation to sell anything.

The Lufkin show is from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Pitser Garrison Convention Center, 601 N. Second St.

For anyone that would like to have their items evaluated, the process is free. Those interested in selling their coins and currency may ask to be connected with collectors looking for the types of items they have. This service is also free, and the seller will keep 100 percent of the offer made, if they choose to sell.

During this event, anyone can bring in gold or silver coins and currency to have experts examine them free of charge. Offers to purchase will be made based on that day’s silver and gold market, as well as the condition and rarity of the coins.

Gold buyers are also on hand during the coin show. If you have gold, platinum or silver jewelry you might want to bring it to this event. You can have it tested, weighed and valued free of charge. If you are interested in selling, they can accommodate that too. Buyers will be on hand all week examining and purchasing all types of jewelry; even costume jewelry is wanted.

This event is free to attend and there is never any pressure to sell.
