Experts at the Natiional Coin Collectors Association event being held in Morris this week can evaluate — and arranged the purchased — of more than just coins and currency. Antiques including musical instruments, barber chairs, signs and more are among the items that have been evaluated during previous stops by the association.

For five days, members of the National Coin Collectors Association will assist local residents with evaluating all types of U.S. and foreign coins and currency.

The NCCA’s experts will be at the Days Inn & Suites of Morris, 80 Hampton Road, now through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.

Anyone interested in selling their items can be connected with member-collectors wanting to purchase coins for their collections. The process is free and there is no obligation to sell anything.

Participating NCCA members will make house calls and conduct bank visits on request. Many times, people with larger collections keep them in lock boxes at their banks for security purposes.

For anyone that would like to have their items evaluated, the process is free.

Those interested in selling their coins and currency may ask to be connected with collectors looking for the types of items they have.

During this event, anyone can bring in gold or silver coins and currency to have experts examine them free of charge. Offers to purchase will be made based on that day’s silver and gold market, as well as the condition and rarity of the coins.

Gold buyers are also on hand during the coin show. If you have gold, platinum or silver jewelry you might want to bring it to this event. You can have it tested, weighed and valued free of charge. If you are interested in selling, they can accommodate that, too.

Buyers will be on hand all week examining and purchasing all types of jewelry; even costume jewelry is wanted.

This event is free to attend and there is never any pressure to sell. It’s fun and you will love to see what your friends and neighbors are bringing in. You might be sitting on a treasure and don’t even know it.
