I don't think it's an issue if you don't identify them.
ok well that defeats the point, thanks.
You don’t need to name dealers to recount the events that took place for the benefit of others. There may be a number of readers who would find themselves in similar circumstances, and extract themselves from a losing situation before it’s too late.
Insert 'dealers' instead of Americanos.......and Mike ain't included with the bunch........
Actually it's not an issue even if he does identify them. At least it's not when it comes to the forum rules.
For example, if a member wishes to discuss a dealer, or recommend a dealer to others, or even warn others about a dealer, and identify them, and post links to the dealer's website - that member may do so if he wants to. There is no rule against doing that. As a matter of fact, I even recommend and always have that forum members do that - for what better way is there to find out about a good dealer than from another collector.
The one thing I caution members about is this. If you have negative reports about a specific dealer that you wish to share with the forum, the forum rules allow you to do that, as long as you do so in a civil and respectful manner. No name calling or anything even remotely like that in other words. However, you must realize that you, not CT, are personally and legally responsible for anything you say. In other words, if that dealer wishes to sue you personally for what you say - he can do so, and do so legally. And of course if the dealer in question wishes to respond to your comments, tell his side of the story here on the forum, he's allowed to do that as well.
Mike is a "favorite" dealer for many for all the wrong reasons .... as many do not agree to how he earns a living in relation to coins and tv selling propaganda.
Probably true, but if someone was treated badly egregiously or were scammed, I don't believe they have a problem from a legal perspective.
OTOH, making a bad (investment) decision or having a coin not turn out as lucratively as you want doesn't give you the right to trash the dealer, either.
If a dealer charges a 10% premium/discount for selling/buying gold bullion coins, that's criticism-worthy though I wouldn't trash someone and call them a thief, dishonest, etc. Markups are markups. Everyone has different cost structures.
I think most dealers are honest -- or I would expect that to be the case -- because reputations travel fast even without the CF Message Forums and if someone wasn't treating their customers fairly, word would spread.
Sorry to intrude on this post. But I am lost. I am kind of stuck and lost here. I am new here to this site. don't know my way around or how to operate it properly. "Question", hopefully someone can help me. "I", have a 1977 Dime. Now they say for its imperfections to make it rare the 'Letter D" was filled in to due the machinery breaking during the making of the currency which lead the machine to "Fill in the letter D". Well see, mine has all the same imperfections "Except", above the "1977", where the filled in "D", is supposed to be. There isn't a engraved mark of any kind, or any signs leading to the filled in "Letter D". The dime is totally missing this marking. I will be happy to upload a couple pics upon me figuring this site out, also being informed if it even worth my time. Thank you again!
You sure are.......you need to ask that question in a thread focused on modern dimes or create a thread to that effect.
go to this forum section
click on the "POST NEW THREAD" shown here in the right as the BLUE Button.
then just go through it.
use the button "UPLOAD A FILE" to upload JPG pictures of the coin front and back.
then after it gets uploaded click the "FULL IMAGE" button so the pictures show up in the thread box
This has been addressed in later posts, but there's no way to delete this one.
I could tell right away that the dealer thought I was wasting his time. He gave the collection a quick glance and made me an offer that was less than face value. I felt insulted at the time. He could have told me that he wasn't interested instead of being so rude.
Now that I'm older, wiser, and bald, I have more resources to buy better coins. I've found an excellent local coin dealer in Schofield WI that is the polar opposite of the SD dealer. I'd recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling coins and collectables.
Thanks, now that makes cents!
So, I request no one purchase these coins from ANY of these dealers, liars or thieves and eliminate the demand they profit from. I am so sorry for ALL coin collectors that were harmed from this too. Real sad time for us.
