How nice of the shysters to help the poor widow.They probably will sell the coins for 10 times what they paid.

They are not giving you market value if they are reselling it. They are ripping you off and selling it for probably double what they pay you.

Of course they are interested in Gold and Silver. Very interested in paying less than market value. Why would they even bother coming here if they were willing to pay market value? They could get unlimited metal at market rate. Santa Cruz Coin Exchange has always qouted me the best rate. Save yourself alot of money and get a qoute from the Coin Exchange, then see how much this roadshow wants to rip you off.

Antiques is a lovely but murderous game.

This is unfortunately very similarly named to "Antiques Roadshow," a legitimate (and high profile, thanks to TV) business that appraises antiques and collectibles.

Why is this a "news article"? This is just a scam that is receiving free publicity via the Sentinel.
Maybe the Sentinel can interview me and advertise my "beachfront property in Arizona" that I just happen to have for sale?
Another sucker born every minute.

Is a bird in the hand really worth two in the bush?
