  If you want to SELL FRANKLIN MINT or other MODERN MINT items,
YES, I'm most interested in buying! But, I don't have 1000+ different prices memorized, so if you call, I really don't have instant information to give you, sorry! PLEASE send me an email at with a brief list of what you have. DO NOT SEND pictures. I can then respond with the EXACT PRICES I will pay, my references and full shipping information.

I generally CANNOT help you by phone,
Please DO NOT call.

Please DO NOT
send photos in your first email.
MOST of the time, I will ask you for a $10 fee to briefly authenticate your item, See VERIFY.
  If you want FREE INFORMATION on your material,
On some items, I can provide BRIEF information for free, via email ONLY. For MOST items, I DO charge for information, as I do NOT have unlimited time to reply, sorry! PLEASE see this LINK before emailing.
Please DO NOT CALL me for free information, sorry!
I apologize if this is too blunt, but I have been flooded with calls from people wanting my time and free advice, and I've literally run out of time!
If you are willing to pay a nominal charge of $5 to $10, I can often tell you if your SLAVE Tags and some Indian Peace Medals are fake or fantasy items. YOU GET the $5-10 as CREDIT towards any future purchase. If they are NOT an obvious fake/fantasy, all such items need to be VERIFIED.
