Great service and low fees
After scouring locally and online for a low-fee service to buy my two $50 maple leafs, I discovered Kitco, which offered a mere $20 fee per coin, as opposed to the $50-$200 I was quoted, elsewhere. After a few e-mails between me and Kitco - - all of which were responded to within hours or the very next business day - - I was assured that the process wouldn't cost a cent more, and that I would get a check (there are other ways to receive funds) within 10 business days. After spending just over $20 on registered/insured mail (don't bother with the USPS "e-mail delivery notice" option; the registered tracking number gives you free tracking, and tells you when it was delivered (save the $2.00!), I was able to track the well-protected, plain, envelope (postmarked at the post office), through the next 8 business days, through which it travelled, which was oddly long, considering that the address was a post office just 30 miles away, but, the PO clerk warned me that the "chain of custody" is meticulous and slow, so, I took it in stride. Two business days, later, I rec'd an e-mail from Kitco saying they rec'd it, and that the check would be sent within 24 hours, and that I would receive it within 10 business days. Four days later, it was in my hands (it was sent from an out-of-state address, but, written on an in-state bank; go figure!), and was exactly what I expected, with no additional fees or any taxes, etc. I strongly recommend them to anyone thinking of selling their gold bullion: Avoid the angst of paying WAY too much at jeweler's, pawn shops, metal recyclers, etc!
