All that glitters is not always gold. The fact is that many items many items believed to be gold turn out to be nothing more than gold paint or gold plate. That is why we strongly recommend an appraisal on gold coins, jewelry, bars, etc. The appraisal serves two benefits. First, it lets you know the true value of the gold in your possession. Second, it reassures prospective buyers that the items they are bidding on are genuine gold. This has dual-benefits. It makes it possible to set the starting bid at the appropriate price and it can increase the item’s value to bidders who can determine what to expect as the bidding progresses.
