Wilmington Lacking Retail
Great Purchases Save Show from Being a Total Disaster

Jan. 18, 2017 - We have always sang the praises of The Wilmington Coin Club Show. The club continually makes an effort to make this show work, either by virtue of the dealer mix or quantity and quality of the public attendance. This year, the latter was mysteriously absent. Although bodies filled the room for all 3 days, the quality buyer was simply not there. Sure, the dealers specializing in lower-priced material reported average to active shows, but we would argue that their bar is set much lower than ours. If Rob and Robbie take days away from the office, and invest in the associated show overhead, a certain level of expectation accompanies. The Reeded Edge simply stated is never looking to just pay for their table, and had we been reliant on the buyers at Wilmington would have done merely that....at best. It really was that bad a show! Fortunately, the guys table location and aggressive buying posture saved the show from being a total failure. During the course of the show, they purchased over two double-row boxes of new certified coins as well as several hundred raw coins, including a nearly-complete Morgan Dollar set. They also managed to sell quite a bit outside of the show. At the end of the day, the show numbers looked artificially strong, but only because the guys could think outside of the box. If Wilmington does not improve the quality of customer coming through their doors, we fear that it will suffer the same fate as many other smaller club shows around the country. We really hope to see an improvement at next year's venue, as this area really does have enormous promise.

This week, you will see MANY new purchases throughout the webstore. By now, most of our FUN new purchases have been worked up and are ready for sale. PCGS got severely backed up with their on-site show grading, and consequently, many of our grading newps didn't make it back to the office until this week. Also, as mentioned above, Wilmington was extremely fruitful for sourcing new collector material. Please peruse all of our New Store Items, as we think that you will be pleasantly surprised at both the quantity and scope of these recent acquisitions.

The Reeded Edge is still focused on BUYING. We continue to seek out all worthwhile numismatic material. If the coin market lacks the steam that some of our fellow wholesale partners have been alleging, apparently they forgot to give us that memo. If you have any fresh or interesting coins for sale, please either call the office @ 301-724-0400 or visit Rob or Robbie this week in Wilmington, Delaware. We love fresh material, and our aggressive offers will definitely reflect that.

The Reeded Edge Launches our 6th Annual Toys for Kids Christmas Celebration with The Salvation Army

 

December 12, 2016 - Success can be measured a number of different ways. Thirty years ago when The Reeded Edge was conceived, the challenge was to pay the bills and derive an income. Fortunately, hard work really does pay off. Things are quite different for us today, and we now are in a position each year to help those in our community that are less fortunate. Six years ago, we teamed up with our local branch of the Salvation Army to provide toys for children during the holidays. This has turned into a tradition for us, with everybody in the company participating at some level. For us, this is one of our highlights of the holiday season. There is nothing more gratifying than watching 50 children open presents and embrace the spirit of the holidays. We hope that each of you can touch someone's life during the holidays. It's really an uplifting experience that stays with us all year long.


Stolen Coin From the Baltimore Coin Show

September 9, 2014 - The Reeded Edge had a 1927-S Buffalo Nickel, PCGS MS-64, #3962.64/30179690 stolen at July 8th's Whitman Baltimore Coin Show. The coin is a golden white with nice luster and relatively clean surfaces. Originally purchased out of the Heritage June Long Beach auction, this piece is well archived, complete with high resolution photographs. It has a few very distinctive markings, and would be easy to identify in or out of its original holder. A "no questions asked" reward is being offered for its return. Any help from our customers or fellow dealers in recovering this coin is greatly appreciated.

Approval Service Available to Reeded Edge Customers

April 7, 2014 - As you peruse our webstore, you may notice ON HOLD next to the listing of a particular coin. This, amongst other things, could indicate that the coin is out ON APPROVAL to one of our customers. This allows the customer to examine the coin before making payment. For our well established clients, approvals are a preferred way of conducting business. For those not familiar with an approval service, here is how it works: The first step is to build a business relationship with us or any other recognized rare coin firm. If your previous business is with other firms, we ask you to provide three different credit references of dealers that have extended you credit in the immediate past. If your business is in-house, we will evaluate the nature, frequency and dollar amount of your business, and make a credit decision accordingly. Once established, you may use this privilege indefinitely. This gives you the ability to get the coin in-hand, examine it in the privacy of your own home and/or office for 24 hours, and then make your buying decision. This is a great option, and one that MANY of our regular customers take advantage of. Please also note, our approval service is not just for coins. It extends to any item on the webstore with a retail value of $1000.00 or more, including currency, vintage toys, political items, documents & autographs, exonumia and stamps. Please call our offices @ 301-724-0400, Rob on his cell @ 240-422-0118 or Robbie on his cell @ 301-876-1332 to discuss this service further.


Longevity

July 5, 2014 - Yesterday, I was pondering the fact that our country turned 238 years old. The United States is the oldest westernized democracy in modern history. We are an enigma in many ways, but perhaps the most poignant thing that resonated with me was the fact that we are getting stronger with age. In our younger years, we were constantly challenged. Through history we have had to continue to fight and defend our position, proving time and time again that we were worthy of our status in the world pecking order.

Thirty seven years ago, I conceived the idea of The Reeded Edge. We were going to be a coin dealer that catered to servicing local customers through trade shows one or two weekends per month. It didn't take long for me to figure out that with hard work and persistence, that there just might be a career potential with this business. But figuring something out and actually taking action are two different matters entirely. It took me another twelve years to make the commitment, and take The Reeded Edge into a full time venture. Since then, we too have had our challenges. But despite them (or perhaps, because of them), we have emerged stronger and better to become the company that you know today. To a great extent, the addition of Ray Hunt 15 years ago and Robbie Jenkins 8 years ago, have allowed for that growth. By taking us to the next step, from a technological and numismatic standpoint, we are now able to do things and service our customers in a way that we could not have done in our early years. Like our great nation, I would like to believe that we are on an upward path, solidifying our position in the numismatic arena.

July 4th made me realize that we as a nation have much to be thankful for, and we are lucky in so many ways. My business is no different. In fact, any organization is only as good as the sum total of its parts, and those parts are their people. I like to believe that I remind Ray and Robbie how important they are to our operation on a regular basis. You, our customers, comprise the other part of this group, and I want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your loyalty, support and patronage. Without you, we could not be where we are today, a fact I never forget or take lightly.  

To all, a Happy Fourth of July holiday and thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Rob Lehmann
