    Thank you so much for a pleasant experience. You were professional, knowledgeable and very fair. It was truly a pleasure doing business with you.

    I had a very positive experience with 2nd Markets. They quickly responded to all my queries, offered exactly what is listed on their website, made it easy to ship the coins that I was selling, and quickly sent me a check in payment.

    I found 2nd Markets a few years ago when I was pricing the coin collection given to me by my Father. I have visited many places in Wilmington DE and surrounding area. All those places wanted to give me only the smelt value of my collection. I had absolutely no interest in trading to melt this collection down. I found Jon Warren and his company in a newspaper, I gave them a description and he returned to me with the most fair offer I had ever received and he was a buyer/ seller. So no melting for the material, these items would go to other collectors. It wasn’t until years later that I finally sold Jon my collection and He was STILL at beyond fair market value for the collection. I was able to speak to Jon after a couple of messages and his email traffic was always informative. I was in the loop for the entire process, they paid to ship the items from my home to TN. I received a check electronically within minutes after they received the collection. This Family business is the BEST when it comes to trading your collection. Jon Warren, Thank you!

    I just competed a sale of some collectible pocket knives to 2ndmarkets. The process was simple and the bid was very fair. After accepting the bid I was sent detailed instructions on how to pack and ship my collection prepaid and insured by 2ndmarkets. Payment was sent out the same day the package was received. I will definitely use them for future transactions and will highly recommend 2ndmarkets to family and friends.

    Dealing with the folks at 2nd Markets was easy and fast. They sent along clear and easy instructions for packing and shipping my collection. After accepting the bid, I sent the collection via Fed Ex, which 2nd Markets paid for. I shipped on a Monday and received payment on Friday, the same day they received it.

    I had an excellent experience selling my collectibles to 2nd Markets. Jon was clear about what he was and was not interested in purchasing, the price quote was competitive, communications were prompt and professional, and the process of shipping and subsequent payment was simple and clear. I would recommend 2nd Markets to anyone seeking to market their collectibles.

    I recently completed the sale of a coin collection to 2nd Markets. The transaction more than met my expectations. After I sent a description of the collection to its website, 2nd Markets quickly gave me a firm quote that was very fair. They were very responsive to all my questions (this was my first time with this kind of sale) and gave comprehensive instructions about packing and sending the coins (at their expense) and payment. Payment in full was completed on the next business day after they received the coins. The experience was more than satisfactory in all respects and I would use them again in the future.

    Doing business with 2ndmarkets was a pleasure. Very prompt with their replies and very quick to send payment. I would recommend this company.

    Jon is a pleasant and forthright man who furnishes a prepaid and insured FedEx label for shipping to his TN location; or he May travel to your residence to purchase desirable larger collections. He will send to you a link for proper safe packing instructions; and after his review, he will issue to you a timely payment. Do not hesitate your dealing with this fair and honest person who is worthy of your attention.
