Liberty Shops Auctions

Welcome to Liberty Trading Post!

Liberty Shops Auctions, also doing business as Liberty Trading Post, continues to set standards on Proxibid, the latest being the top seller! A newer top-ranked house on Proxiblog, auctioneer Sean Cook has helped his company win Honorable Mentions in our annual awards program for the best timed auction, the best value added, the best descriptions and the most improved.

Sean continues to innovate, with his latest being a focus on bidder confidence. He encourages bidders to know more about numismatics because he has seen too many purchasing altered, counterfeit and hyped coins on the portal.

Sean also supports youth numismatics. “I am always looking to introduce coin collecting to the younger generation.”

You don’t have to be a student to enter; but you do have to know one you’d like to introduce to coin and currency collecting. You also need to register via Proxibid in one of Liberty Shops Auctions’ sessions. (You don’t have to bid to enter the contest!)

The winner will receive a group of coins, a grading book, a value guide, and some collecting folders. “The value wouldn’t be huge,” Sean says, “but it would be enough to get someone interested and introduced to the hobby.”

Proxiblog also enthusiastically supports youth numismatics. Here’s the challenge for Proxibidders who know a K-12 pupil or high school/college student who might be interested in collecting: Suggest a youth game that kids through teens can play in a group setting, like a local coin club.

For inspiration, visit this Coin World link featuring just the kind of activities that Sean Cook wants to see to spark interest in a new generation of numismatists. (You can’t use any of the games mentioned in the article, however.)

Invent a new game and send the details to Sean Cook at this email: Sean chooses the winner. His decision is final.

Competition closes at 6 p.m. (central time) Saturday, March 2. Winner announced on Monday, March 4, on Proxiblog.

We also hope that you will visit Proxibid’s top seller, Liberty Shops Auction, which includes inexpensive shipping and ZERO buyer’s premium. A few other coin auctions have offered low or zero buyer’s fees, but Liberty Shops Auction adds value to that with customer service, grading expertise and numismatic descriptions accompanied by expandable visuals so that bidders know what they are getting in word and photo.

Sean Cook also communicates quickly with bidders and focuses on customer service to get return bidders. His company’s values include warm, pleasant and friendly interaction.

If you are interested in bidding in or consigning to his auctions, or in visiting his online store, feel free to contact him at:
