    I have ceased all buying/selling on Ebay, at least for coins.

    Thank you for posting those, I love finding potential new sources. I buy on Ebay, especially from some of the well known dealers (South of the Border Coins, SNL Coins, Sirius Sport Auctions, Type Coin) some of the sellers here, Charter Oak Coin's monthly auction. Oh I forgot, Ampex and Aydin Coin too.

    Most all of my coin purchases are from my LCS as I like to hold the coin before I buy it, but I have purchased bullion from JM Bullion and Apmex. Early on I had a little dealing with Littleton.

    The LCS seemed daunting pre-covid, and now isn't a place I'll go - I'm responsible for care of vulnerable individuals, maybe after we're all vaccinated. I have looked in pawn shops and a coin / comic / baseball card shop, they didn't have all that much, but it is a welcoming place.

    Try Dave's Collectible Coins. Good prices and quick delivery. Even throughs in a butterscotch candy.

    I guess I am getting old. i do not buy online, unless I have seen the coin. I may pay for it using IT, but blind buying, TPG/4PG or not, I don't.

    Blindly would just be buying from a list. If there's pictures it's not actually blindly buying it though it isn't as good as in hand. Problem is though you really close off what you're exposed to and what you can get if you ignore online now. Even dealers source inventory from online which they then of course mark up

    the two places i buy from have photos of the coins so I'm not blindly buying i know what the coin looks like yes they use stock photos a lot of times but still i have a general idea of what I'm getting

    Amazon is one place i have bought a few coins from

    and a website called the executive coin company

    I do not experience a problem, with being selective, including being very selective with any dealer I decide to transact with.

    The coin speaks for itself, and I don't consider the pieces I am interested in as in need of discovery by me via wide exposure using IT.
    I never ever never grade and purchase from from images (I don't think I mentioned that before, have I?).

    As long as the dealer has a reasonable return policy you ARE seeing the coin before you commit to buying it.

    Sight seen/unseen purchases have nothing to do with pictures; if you can't see the coin in person before committing to a final purchase then it is sight unseen--pictures or no pictures. If you can see the coin before making a final commitment to purchase it is--even if you have to pay for it first (ie, with a reasonable return policy)--then it is a sight seen purchase even if purchased from a mailing list with no pictures at all.

    Um, depends on what you want to buy OP. Give us an idea of what it is, and we can give you better suggestions.

    As I've said many times I'm a coin collector not a coin investor! Just want to find some honest reliable place to buy uncertified coins. Don't plan to spend big bucks!

    Yeah, but what sir? Ancients, world coins (which would beg what era), early US, moderns, paper money? Each of these have different locations to purchase. Go to a local coin store or coin show and you will not find my avatar coin for example.

    Or many moderns, or a lot of world coins etc.
