Went down to Foster's Coin in Berkeley to spend an afternoon on my coin collection. Found a good selection and good prices for Morgan silver dollars, foreign coins, and stamps. The owner is friendly and conversant in numismatics.

This is my kind of store, a place to hang out and talk to the very knowlegable owner about the complex economic issues of our day. Things are a bit of a 'mess' stamps and coins all over the place but a visual feast. The owner,Mr Foster does not suffer fools easily but I like that. A person who doesnt stand for foolishness and wimps. He, after you get to know him is a great guy. This is a great place to take your kid. He is the author of a superb stamp book for kids and adults, The Lost Stamps of America and also the author of a book on paper money vs coin money called Fiat Money. Foster is flexible with his prices and will wheel and deal with you a little if you show the right attitude. ya gotta be a little gruff in this mans world and this is Berkeley, Jake, so get with it and head over to Fosters stamps n' coins.

Great place to sell the old coins lying around the house. Service was prompt and no-nonsense. The owner is a little rough around the edges, but competitive when it comes to prices. Will work with you. The shop itself is a delightful blend of coins, stamps, flags, and even a few books. The location is convenient to Bart and Shattuck Avenue. Would definitely recommend.

This guy is a real piece of work. He rips of college students who dont know the true value of what they have and thats what has kept his buisness going. While this may not be illegal, morally it is repugnant. I have never left there with a good feeling and he shows little interest in folks who come in off the street. I will no longer patronize his buisness.
