As an avid collector for over five decades, I have built numerous collections that I later sold through auction. The Goldbergs are true professionals that spend a superior amount of time promoting and marketing their sales, ensuring you get the maximum return on your investments! I have always been impressed by their ability to avoid a “clearing house” mentality and go the extra mile for their clients.

I am still glowing over the wonderful manner in which your organization handled the auction of the Missouri Cabinet Collection of Half Cents. The catalog was a masterpiece and will serve as a reference on half cents for decades to come. The photographs were magnificent and Bob Grellman’s research was terrific. The entire process was totally professional and merited the excellent results the auction achieved.

This is an open letter regarding the wonderful experience I have had consigning my coins to your firm for the 2014 Pre-Long Beach Sale on January 28th.
I had tried (unsuccessfully) to find a buyer for my collection at local coin shops and coin shows, receiving offers of less than $1,000.00 consistently. Since I really did not know the real value of these coins, I followed the advice of my husband and called you.
After sending photos of some of the coins, you flew to St. Louis, drove to our home, thoroughly reviewed the coins with us and gave us a pre-auction estimate of $22,000.00! I cannot even tell you how exciting that news was. When the auction catalog arrived, our coins were presented with exceptional standards and professional grading.
As exciting as all these events were, the stunning conclusion was a total “hammer price” of nearly $67,000! It took a company with integrity to alleviate my fear of selling these coins … I have no doubt (that) my interests were professionally and successfully represented by Goldberg Coins and Collectibles.
P.S. Ira, you are one of the kindest and approachable people I have enjoyed the company of in recent years.
With best regards and hope for your continued success,

I’ve been reading your lot descriptions and I want to both thank you for doing such a lovely job on my coins and also congratulate you on what are really among the very best descriptions in the US auction business today.
The historical associations you put in many lots make the coins much more desirable, to my way of thinking, than just giving a nice description of the coin’s physical qualities. They offer a REAL REASON to want to own any of these coins, as you give the coins their place in American history.
Your descriptions will entice bidders to bid more and will encourage consignors to send coins to Ira and Larry because of the special treatment and care you give the coins.
Keep it up!

We are writing to express our gratitude to the Goldbergs for the outstanding job they did selling our coin collection.
There was a lot of uncertainty on our part as we began this process, and naturally, emotions were running high. At every juncture, Ira and Larry were sensitive and professional, and as such, we felt extremely comfortable putting our family’s legacy in their hands.
From the original analysis of our coins under the murky light of the bank vault, to submitting the coins for professional grading, through the final prices realized, Ira and Larry made good on all of their promises – in fact, exceeded them! – displaying all the while a deep and profound knowledge of the field, honed over decades. Indeed, these gentlemen represent the best of old school numismatics, with their palpable passion for collecting, and their ability to focus on the client’s needs above all else.
We will not hesitate to recommend the Goldberg’s services to anyone considering bringing their collection to auction. We are certain that, like ours, their experience will be an extremely positive one, with results to match!
Again, our sincerest thank you!

Thank you for all your advice on the presentation and timing for the sale of my late husband’s Large Cent collection. I was most impressed with the high degree of security your offices provided.
In addition, I was delighted in the fact that you are not only professional and knowledgeable, but also so passionate.
I am so very, very pleased with your service, and the wonderful outcome of the auction!!
Thank you again.
