Have you ever wondered what those old silver coins in your coffee can were worth? When was the last time you even pulled them out from your closet, basement or attic? Well, now is the time to begin your hunt, because the Premiere Estate Buyers group is in Greencastle this week in search of the most rare coins in world.

Premiere Estate Buyers has set up shop for the public to sell their valuables from June 21 to 25 at the Comfort Inn, 50 Pine Drive, Greencastle. From Tuesday to Friday, June 21 to 24, the doors will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. On Saturday, June 25, the event is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For directions, call 717-597-8164 and for information, call 217-787-7767.

The organization has recently uncovered some rare coins. An 1894 S Barber dime sold for a whopping $1.9 million. A gold coin collection uncovered in a small North Carolina town went for $120,000. A penny was even recently sold for over $300 at a show in Georgia.

During this event at the Comfort Inn, collectors are hoping to see items such as coins and paper currency issued prior to 1965 and gold items including class rings, mismatched earrings, broken necklaces, gold coins and bullion. Nearly all coins, vintage jewelry, bullion, Krugerrands and paper currency from the early 20th century and later are sought after by collectors.

The event is open to the public.

Collectors from around the globe will be there. Experts will make offers based on what collectors are willing to pay. When someone decides to sell, they get paid on the spot and Premiere Estate Buyers sends the item to the collector at their expense.
