Services Offered

I offer the following numismatic services. Please note that all communications and dealings with Michael Kittle Rare Coins will remain confidential.

Auction Lot Viewing

I view coins at most of the Southern California auctions as well as coins in other major auctions from time to time. I would be happy to view any auction lots on your behalf and provide you with detailed feedback.

Buying, Selling & Trading

The majority of my business is the buying, selling and trading of coins.  I am always interested in buying your coins outright. Please feel free to contact me with a list and/or photos of the coins you are interested in selling.  Of course, if you are looking to sell a coin that you have previously purchased from me, I am always interested in having coins I have dealt with back in my inventory.  I try to keep my inventory up to date, but if you are looking for something in particular that you do not see listed, please contact me as I may have what you are looking for or may know where you can find it.  My inventory changes frequently as I buy and sell coins so please check our website frequently.  I also consider trades of your coins towards coins in my inventory so please feel free to offer me a trade.

Additionally, on transactions over One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00), layaway service is available.  Please contact me in advance if you are interested in layaway so that we can agree to mutually agreeable terms.


If selling your coins to me outright does not appeal to you, I would be happy to take your coins on a consignment basis.  Your coins will be professionally imaged and marketed for sale along with the rest of my inventory.  Your coins will be exhibited at several Southern California coin shows, including the Long Beach Coin Expos, and will be listed for sale on our eBay store.


I would be happy to assist you in determining the value of your collection. For this service, I charge an hourly rate plus any out of pocket expenses.  Please note that if you decide to sell your collection to me following my appraisal, I will waive all appraisal fees.  Please feel free to contact me for more information.  That said, if you need assistance in valuing a single coin or only a few coins, I would be happy to help you free of charge if you are able to bring your coins to me at a local coin show, coin club meeting or if you are able to provide clear, high-resolution photos via email.
