    I was just wondering if anyone knows about registration for auction houses. I've only ever bid on coins through Heritage, but I would like to also bid through CNG and Bertolami. However, I noticed for the latter two that dealer/auction house references are required to get an account. I'm a little confused as to what this means. Do I need dealers/auction houses (which is currently just Heritage) to submit proof of my purchases or that I am a client? I believe Bertolami requires 3 auction houses which may be a problem for me (I only have 2, if I include my recent purchase at Stacks-Bowers store in NYC, which was not from their auctions).

    Your help is appreciated.

    No, you just tell them which dealers you have purchased from in the past. Other auction houses are nice, but if you have simply purchased coins from a retail dealer, you may use them as references.

    You don't have to submit proof; you simply have to say these are the dealers I've done business with.

    Not much more to add here.
    Any dealer you have bought through will suffice as a reference..
    With the amount of quality coins passing through the top auction houses, registering is just a fact of life and you won't regret it..
