CCB to offer free coin appraisal service

LITTLE VALLEY – Cattaraugus County Bank will be offering FREE, professional coin appraisals, courtesy of HCC, Inc., a firm of nationally recognized numismatists.

The appraisals will take place at three different CCB offices in October: Tuesday, Oct. 8 in South Dayton from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Wednesday, Oct. 9 in Franklinville from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and Thursday, Oct. 10 in Salamanca from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. No appointments will be taken.

The silver, gold and platinum bullion market is nearing all time highs. The value of silver dimes, quarters and half dollars, along with Gold American Eagles, Gold Canadian Maple Leafs and Krugerrands are skyrocketing! Additionally, collector coins like Morgan and Peace Dollars, Indian Pennies and commemorative coins are in great demand. So, if your old coins are sitting around in a closet collecting dust, this is the time to see what they are worth! HCC will purchase your coins at the appraised value if desired.

“Coin appraisal days have been very successful in the past at CCB. We are always amazed at the turn out,” Dawn Tocha, CCB Assistant Vice President & Retail Manager, said. “We knew some of our customers were coin collectors, but had no idea how many! I invite the public to visit CCB with their old coin and currency for some refreshments and possible great news about the value of their belongings. These appraisers are very professional, experienced numismatists!”

HCC, Inc., a Toledo, Ohio based company, is in the business of appraising, selling, purchasing and providing custodial services with respect to rare and/or old coins, precious metals (including gold, silver, platinum and palladium), modern proof sets, governmental commemorative issues, and currency.
