    If I'm selling those to you trust me, I'm taking cash only! With my sidearm showing. Seller beware!

    I think local CS here are cash only. If there are well known repeat customers, they may make exceptions with checks, but generally no.

    why would you steal a 1906 IHC in VG damaged condition?

    I want the 1923 Morgan with none higher, for obvious reasons.

    Me too. I've been the victim of theft more than once. Once my bicycle was stolen, another time my debit card got skimmed at the gas pump.

    I take checks from people at coin shows if a dealer I know well can vouch for them. Never had a problem, and will continue the practice. Just like diamond dealers in NYC doing $Millions of business with a handshake.

    Same here, but not showing. I love the element of surprise.
