Five Star Auctions, operated by Hank Pulley of Arapahoe, Nebraska–one of our first newcomers to rise immediately to top-house rankings–has won the category of “Best New Auction,” based on excellent consignments, low buyer’s premium (12.5%), and no reserves on coins.
Five Star also takes good photos of coins, with multiple shots, as in this slabbed example:
Consignments include PCGS and NGC holdered coins in addition to rare gold and silver–again, sold to the highest bidder. Here’s a typical selection:
Also impressive is its shipping policy: “Buyers will pay actual shipping cost with no handling fee. Shipping will be within 2 business days of receipt of payment for item (items) purchased.”
Liberty Shops Auctions was a close second with Braxton Auctioneering and Back to the Past Collectibles–all honorable mentions–also in the running. All are worth a look … and a bid!
