Beginning February 29 and continuing through March 31, Liberty Coin Service in Lansing’s Frandor Shopping Center is helping customers on a treasure hunt by offering free oral and written appraisals of a wide variety of jewelry, coins, gold, paper money, diamonds, silver, other precious metals, and a number of collectibles. The Treasure Hunt started with a bang on Saturday, February 29, when over a hundred people brought to Liberty Coins items that had been sitting in their drawers, closets, basements, and attics to be checked out. Liberty provides these appraisals as a public service at no charge and no obligation to conduct a transaction.
Said Tom Coulson, owner of Liberty Coin Service, “Every week, we help hundreds of people every week discover items they either didn’t know were valuable or were worth much more than they realized. Now that the price of gold in recent days has reached the highest prices in more than seven years, it is more important than ever for people to know the value of what they own. Most people simply want an oral appraisal. However, for our Free Appraisals In March Treasure Hunt, we also offer free written appraisals by appointment, a service for which we usually charge (though we are not able to perform written insurance appraisals for jewelry and gems).”
Liberty Coins recently upgraded its testing equipment technology with the purchase of an Olympia x-ray spectrometer, possibly the first precious metals buyer in Michigan to have it available. If needed, the machine features a larger test chamber and faster results in a non-destructive analysis of the metal content of items than the company’s other testing equipment.
