OK, but the way the story was presented was that Coinblazer had prior experience with the dealer and that you were along for the ride.
If you have purchased coins from him before, it is likely that TypeCoin is right and that he just didn't want to buy your coins.
1) He doesn't want angry parents coming back demanding the coins back (either because the coins could have been stolen, or YNs might not realize that brick and mortar dealers pay about 50% of what they charge), or
2) He doesn't think the coins would sell in his shop.
I'm 29 and I've found that so many dealers are so patronizing and/or dismissive even at my age that I don't even bother with physical shops anymore.
I agree. I am very old and I get turned off by dealers.
That's honestly the worst age group to be in for most dealers. Too old for them to treat you nice like a kid, but to young for them to think you're serious.
I can sympathize...
Forget about the negative people at school. If your experience will be anything like mine was, after you leave school, you won't be seeing them ever again. Well, 95% of them anyway.
Yes, older collectors will look down on you, and think less of you. And because of your age. It's completely unfair and that attitude could come back to bite these same people if they are dealers who own a coin business. I never went back to any business where they laughed at my name or called me "kid" or didn't at least deal with me like an adult customer. When I was 15, I looked like I was 9; when I was 22, I looked like I was 15; which made MANY aspects of my life hard. And the baby-face didn't really go away until I hit my mid-30s. The only thing I thought I could do back then was to deliberately do fiercely loyal business with those who treated me as they would any other customer, and to go out of my way to shun those from whom I had detected the tiniest snub. I thought it was my only way to deal with it. I'm not sure that I was right about doing that, but...
That experience taught me that people DO judge books by their covers, and most of the time! Buying an expensive, good-fitting expensive ($1,000+) suit, shoes and ties did wonders for me. And it still does.
and a big German peaked cap will defiantly mean business. I have mask on to not show face but you can see hat. And fun fact, Ges Gesch the brand of my hat is the same brand of cap the Nazis used in the war but this one is not Nazi because it came from the 1972 Olympics in Munich.
You could still do that, they just may drop the gate on you and be greeted by a bunch of Cops with guns pulled afterwards
Adulthood is vastly overrated. Play your cards right, and you can put it off for at least another 6 years . . . longer if you pursue a post-graduate degree and avoid marriage.
I met a fellow flight test engineer at work, and his job and his wife let him channel his inner child. Really great and happy guy.
