    A pleasure to do business with this company as they did all they indicated they would and more in a very timely manner (considering the Covid times we all live in today). Will continue to work with them.

    Selling to 2nd Markets was incredibly easy. I was feeling a bit overwhelmed by the prospect of selling some silver coins, but 2nd Markets made the process as pleasant and efficient as possible. I received a very fair bid via email, and then all I had to do was box up the coins and take them to FedEx. I would highly recommend doing business with 2nd Markets. My experience was fast, easy, and very pleasant.

    I was very satisfied and impressed with the service and interaction with 2nd Markets. They were very prompt and timely with responses to questions and offer as well as clear directions on how to complete the sale. Turnaround time from mailing and receiving my check was very quick. I would definitely recommend them to anyone with treasures to sell.

    2nd Markets has been great to work with. No problems or issues and received payment quickly after shipping to them. Would highly recommend working with them and will do so again in the future.

    Ed Cantrall

    Danbury, Connecticut 

    At a time when the words, Honesty, Fairness, Truth and Integrity are disappearing from our collective vocabulary, dealing with Jon Warren restores my belief in the essential goodness of most people. I received from him a prompt and fair offer for my collection of Franklin Mint medals and assorted, circulated silver coins. Upon receipt of them and true to his word, Mr. Warren promptly paid the agreed upon price and offered numerous ways of receiving payment. I would not hesitate for a second in dealing again with Mr. Warren !!

    Marie Ostrander

    Wheaton, Illinois 

    2ndMarkets was a delight to work with! Responses were prompt, instructions could not have been more clear and our business was concluded smoothly and sooner than expected. I would highly recommend this company.

    Selling to 2ndMarkets.com was a very simple and hassle free experience. I firmly recommend doing business with Jon, as liquidating some items I had no more need of was an easy experience. I received payment promptly once the item was delivered and inspected.
