http://www.davidlawrence.com/. I consider the DLRC site to be in the top 10 Best Dealer Websites (out of over 200+ I personally have inspected). They have told me this great website will be even better when they launch a new version in the coming months, but that remains to be seen.
To date, I have purchased four (4) coins from them through both their eBay store (http://stores.ebay.com/David-Lawrence-Rare-Coins) and their dealer website. Please note: the two inventories DO overlap. I recommend checking both sites, as normally their direct price is cheaper than their eBay price, although I once bought a coin that was cheaper on their eBay store due to a promotion. I have never personally spoken with the owners, nor have I met them at a show, but I have worked with them through their website, specifically as related to making offers.
1863 CENT - INDIAN HEAD, COPPER-NICKEL WITH SHIELD PCGS MS62 CAC
1912 FIVE-CENT PIECE - LIBERTY HEAD, CENTS NGC MS63 CAC
1914-S QUARTER DOLLAR - BARBER PCGS VG10 CAC
1930 QUARTER DOLLAR - STANDING LIBERTY, T2 PCGS AU58 CAC
By using the teal-colored “Make Offer” button, I was able to negotiate better prices for all four coins than what they listed on their sites. This may not always be the case, but I have found them receptive to reasonable offers. I have had several savings of > 10% and a few that they declined to budge more than 5% on. I have also paid via PayPal and this worked easily with no payment issues to report.
I have loved every single coin I have received from David Lawrence Rare Coins. Their online coin photos are better than most random eBay sellers, but for such as large volume coin dealer, I find them to be somewhat lacking, as they are often over-exposed, showing the holder better than the coin. I will say they seem to be getting better recently. I have never seen manipulated photos that left me disappointed when the coin arrived, whereas some other dealers “juice” their photos. Quite the opposite, I have always been pleasantly surprised or it arrived and looked exactly as expected. Coins were well packaged and shipped quickly, and I was emailed tracking info. I have had to sign for all coin purchased from DLRC, so I assume signature required is standard practice on all their orders.
As a collector who enjoys purchasing CAC coins, I appreciate that DLRC sends so much of his inventory for CAC review, so there are always lots of affordable and expensive CAC inventory to choose from.
I have no complaints to write about, and I plan to purchase additional coins from David Lawrence Rare Coins in the future. I highly recommend you check their sites and make sure to call, email, or use the cooked-in "make offer" button to submit offers, as they are very receptive to placing coins in good hands. David Lawrence Rare Coins is easily in my personal top 5 favorite / best coin dealers, and the filtering, sorting, and categories on their site makes finding coins very easily.
