.

Must admit that I had high expectations having talked with Alan's buddy Dan on the phone . . . when I arrived I mentioned I had called some months previously on a Monday and aside from initially answering the phone . . . the person never said another word, set down the phone and walked off and came back 10 minutes later to hang up the phone. I tried again thinking I must have the wrong number but had the same experience . . . I had to conclude it must have been the janitor . . .

When I mentioned this to Dan he mumbled that it must have been Alan . . . I had no idea who Alan was at the time . . . and was surprised to find out later he was the owner . . .

Well . . . I guess this set the tone for the experience . . . because the first words from Alan were an accussation "aren't you the same guy who came in here a couple days ago" . . . and his friend had to correct him that was another guy . . .

Long story short . . . Alan agreed to buy my 1oz Gold Eagle for spot, took my coin into and came back and counted out the money. I asked him why coin dealers are so cross . . . refering to the Fremont Shop when he flew into a rage . . . shouted . . . "F@#$ You" . . . grabbed the money and stormed into the back room . . .
I guess I'm lucky he returned with my coin . . . tossing it down on the table he said "Get the F@#$Out". . . and pushed me forcfully towards the door with what the police would only consider a physical assualt. I turned and told him that he was definitely being cross and he pushed me even harder into the door . . . his buddies had left earlier and he could've made up whatever story he wanted . . . including keeping my coin . . . and I wouldn't put it past the arrogant S.O.B. . .

. . . Someone oughta warn the public about his Temper . . . ! ! !

There are not many individuals with More integrity as Alan, he has helped me learn a tremendous amount about buying and selling coins and is frank and open when I am considering buying or purchase something that is too good to be true. Alan pays a fair price for coins and sells them at a very fair price as well. His knowledge of coins is near unparalleled, and he is quite direct, he may tell you something you didn't want to hear, however also will take the time to explain it for you. I would imagine there are a few people who really don't want to hear their spectacular deal on a rare coin has some damage that isn't readily available to the untrained eye. Alan may say that's damaged and your jaw may drop, but he never takes offense should you ask him to help you understand. I have lost a few thousand on eBay transactions, however Alan has prevented me from continuing to repeat mistakes, and i have readily learned that his prices both on the Buy and Sell are better than any other source or dealer i have ever interacted with.

Thank you Alan
