Staff Report

ROCHELLE, Ill. — A Gold, Silver, Coins and Currency Collectors Show will be held from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., from Tuesday, Dec. 17, through Saturday, Dec. 21, at the Holiday Inn Express, 1240 N. Dement Road, Rochelle, Ill.

Did you know you might have thousands of dollars worth of gold or silver jewelry sitting in your dresser or jewelry box? Or how about some silver coins made before 1964? Those could be worth thousands!

You might be asking yourself, who buys these old items and pays sensational prices? Collectors do — that’s who. They want the public to dig out any old items they think might be valuable and come show off their goodies. It’s kind of like show-and-tell when you were a child, but with a twist. You see, at this event, collectors are looking to purchase items for their own collections and for fellow collectors around the world. It’s a chance to sell your items on the spot!

These collectors want to see U.S. and foreign coins and currency of all kinds. Silver dollars are favorites to all coin collectors. Morgan dollars and Peace dollars are in high demand right now. Halves, quarters and dimes made before 1964 are in high demand. Mint sets, proof sets and bullion-like bars and rounds are also wanted right now. With the silver and gold markets high, it’s a perfect time to sell. National Coin Collectors Association (NCCA) collectors are known for paying top prices for all types of coins and currency. Buffalo nickels and wheat cents are also wanted. There is no limit to the number of items you can bring in.

In addition, collectors are looking for: all toys made before 1965; war memorabilia such as swords, daggers, medals, helmets, etc.; silver coins and paper currency; and musical instruments, both new and used, especially vintage guitars. Other items they will make offers to buy include diamonds, all gold jewelry, broken jewelry (even costume jewelry), pocket watches and much more.

Finally, by popular demand is the Electronics Buyback Event. Did you know your old smart phone could be worth money … maybe a lot of money? A used iPhone 4S could be worth $250 on the resale market. Your old BlackBerry could be worth $200 or more. A second-generation iPad could bring you $180. A used PS3 game system might be worth $300. But where can you sell your clean, used electronics for cash? The Electronics BuyBack Event! At this event, anyone with clean, used modern electronics can bring them to this event and sell them for cash. Offers made are based on market demand, condition, included accessories and original packaging. Original packages and accessories are not required for you to sell your items. However, premium prices are paid to those sellers who do have the original packaging.

This event is free to attend and there is never any pressure to sell.
