Got any advice you care to share?

2. Don't expect to make much money, especially if you are "dealing" in pocket change like you have shown.
I guess that depends on how you'd define dealer. To me, and most others, a coin dealer is defined as one who makes his living with coins, his primary, and usually only, source of income is buying and selling coins.
Anybody else, they're not coin dealers, they're just somebody who buys and sells coin now and then.
In my research, only 5% of the f-t dealers/sellers make a good living off of it. I don't expect to become rich.
I've been taking a business course online. This was my direction. If I can make a living off of it, I will give it a try, but, obviously I know the market is flooded with dealers and that it ain't easy... can't be any harder than trying to break into the music business.
I want to just get my feet wet first... test the waters. Mostly selling common stuff sure but I am looking into creating custom artful displays of Lots of coins using acrylic resin. Not exactly encasing them cause, I heard that collectors consider them souvenirs after that, but, yeah, hard to clearly define the vision... I will post when I get one done.
Yup, that is exactly what I wanted to do... start off slow. I was actually going to open up an eBay store on Canada Day but for some reason, technical according to customer service, they can't verify me... verified enough to accept my money for purchases but not verified to forward me money from sales... Hmm?
How do you mean? My UNC rolls of coin? Yes, I understand that being UNC does not automatically mean MS70 throughout.
Can that be an omen?
You'd be lucky to find a single 70 in a box, probably none in any of the rolls you've shown.
I'd like 4 pallets of bricks and 10 bags of mortar please. How much is shipping?
Free shipping if you're a Prime member.
LOL. Sorry, not a member.
