My name is Marc R Breitsprecher and I have been buying/selling/collecting ancient coins since 1977. I started selling on eBay in 1996, opened my own website in 1999 and joined VCoins as a Charter Member in 2002. In 2005 I left my career job as a window clerk with the USPS to be a full-time dealer.

We try to make adding new coins to your collection as easy as possible. If you see a coin you like but cannot afford it right now we would be glad to discuss a payment plan that works for you.

You may contact us using the contact form which is available from the menu at the bottom of this and every page on the web site.

PAYMENT

  • Payment within the US can be made by: personal check, money order, PayPal or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover). Personal checks may be held to clear.
  • International payment including Canada can be made by: PayPal or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express) or wire transfer. Wire transfer is required on all international orders over $2000. This will be waived for known, repeat customers. All wire fees must be paid by the buyer.
  • All coins are reserved until payment is received; at this time they are marked sold. The easiest way to purchase a coin is to click on the thumbnail image and then click the "add item to cart" button. This will walk you through our checkout and give you all of the payment and shipping options.
  • You will receive an automated e-mail confirming your purchase.
  • Please note that all items are subject to prior sale as we have several sales venues.
  • We cannot sell precious metal coins to citizens of Minnesota due to their "bullion" coin law. This law prohibits coin dealers, who are not licensed with the State of Minnesota, from mailing any coin with more than 1% precious metal to the state. Learn more HERE.

My mailing address for money order or check payment is:

Marc Breitsprecher
P.O. Box 330371
Fort Worth, TX 76163-0371

SHIPPING

Coins are generally shipped the same day or next day depending on when we can get to the post office. There are times when we are away for a few days but this is the exception rather than the rule and in this case orders will be mailed as soon as we return.

  • Book orders will be shipped at actual cost either first class or media rate.
  • Coins include a photo flip with all of the site information and are shipped in a double padded envelope first-class mail with delivery confirmation via USPS.

  • We are unable to secure shipping insurance via registered mail or airmail for the following countries and we reserve the right to cancel any orders being shipped to any of these countries or other countries that I lose shipments to.

RETURN POLICY

  • All coins and artifacts are guaranteed to be genuine and authentic. I buy all of my coins from very reliable sources.
  • All coins are attributed from my sizable library of ancient numismatic references and then photographed using the state of the art digital equipment. As a general rule coins will be better than the image. All images are processed to look just like the coin on my computer monitor, a 26 inch LG Flatron wide. Monitors do vary in quality and consistency.
  • Coins can be returned at any time for documented questions of authenticity by the original purchaser. Coins can be returned within two weeks for any reason—complete satisfaction is the only acceptable outcome of any transaction.
