Frese Brings New Business Model to Coin Industry

Leo Frese Coins and Collectibles, LLC and Leo Frese, Independent Consultant, announce a new option for those seeking to sell their collections or estates. Formerly Vice President of a major numismatic auction house, with over a quarter of a century in the auction business, Leo is known to thousands of collectors and market traders across the country and overseas. leo_banner

“After spending over 25 years on the inside of the numismatic auction business I have a broad view and understanding of selling in today’s marketplace,” notes Leo Frese, Independent Consultant. “My expertise in bringing collections to market and helping collectors and estates realize top dollar for their material makes me uniquely qualified to assist those looking to sell. Having evaluated and marketed over $500,000,000 in consignments is an achievement few in this industry can equal.”

Leo continues, “Up until now collectors and estates have basically had two options. They could consign everything to an auction house and wait up to 6 months to get paid, after having fees and commissions deducted that often run in excess of 25%. Or they could sell to a dealer for immediate payment, but always wonder if they received top dollar.”

Today estates and collectors have a third option. Leo notes, “I accept their collections on consignment, establishing predetermined selling prices for their rare coins. Additionally I work to maximize their grading when appropriate and submit coins for certification as needed. If a coin will net them more money at auction I’ll handle the consignment process for them. No longer is there a guessing game as to what their material may bring. Payments are made to consignors twice each month, thus drastically reducing their waiting time. Coins are sold directly to my retail clients, through the website, at major national and local coin shows, and sold through other online venues. Because my fees are low, and many coins sell directly to collectors, the check they receive for their collection or estate is higher.”

“My new business model is one that works in partnership with the seller.”
