Nido Coins & Collectibles


"I highly recommend Doug's appraisal services. He is professional and took the time to explain his findings and provide me with a range of options to consider - all with no pressure and a smile. Doug's depth of knowledge is clear and I would happily recommend him to my family and friends. Thanks Doug!   August - 2018

                                                                                                                                                                                 - Dave T.

“I recently decided to have Doug out to have a look at some coins, jewelry and miscellaneous collectibles. I was very impressed with the service that I received. Doug went above and beyond what I was expecting and I found him to be very personable, knowledgeable, honest, trustworthy and a man of integrity. I wouldn't hestitate to recommend him."  

                                                                                                                                                                                  -Lynne H.

“After a lifetime in the antiques restoration business, dealing with the local "pickers", it was refreshing to find someone who brings honesty and integrity to the business. After having dealt with so many unscrupulous and some just downright dishonest people in the business, I can't recommend Doug strongly enough. Whereas the local pickers might pay $0.25 on the dollar Doug consistently pulled through with a minimum $0.65. Those early morning pickers to your garage sale or responding to your ad are not there for your benefit-Doug always will be."  

                                                                                                                                                                                    -Benn G.

"I am writing to thank you so much for your service. You were generous with your time and unfortunately for both of us, the item I brought you had no value. I didn't know that until you went above and beyond to examine it.

People like you are few and far between in my experience. To call you and have you respond the way you did was inspiring. It was apparent there would be no payday for your services because the Gold was not Gold, but you still insisted on going the extra mile to get a second opinion. I even tried to offer you a gesture of thanks but you refused. I suspect in your business, treasure hunting and evaluating, that finding buyers for sellers and making a living is done because of the passion. I am certain that you are passionate about what you do as evidenced by your interest to steer me in the right direction and offer your advice and service at no charge. I offer my words as a testimonial and I would gladly let anyone considering your services know my experience in meeting you and spending the time as you shared your knowledge was worth so much. Restoration in my belief that hopefully people are just wanting to help each other with the gifts we have and not just make a buck was proven in meeting you. It is so nice to be affirmed."  

                                                                                                                                                                                      -Lori F. 

“My experience with Doug has been entirely pleasant and rewarding both in monetary return but more importantly, to me at least, in finding a good home for some of my "treasures". He has the knowledge and the patience to research unusual items and to present his findings with intregrity. I was very happy when he not only got a reasonable price for my 1890's juvenile card game but placed it in a museum for children in the USA. Likewise, Doug researched prices diligently and then found a buyer for my 25-year collection of Mad Magazines. I was more than pleased that others would now enjoy things which I had loved and kept for so long."  

                                                                                                                                                                                   -Eleanor E.

“I can't thank Doug enough for his successful efforts in marketing my vintage items. I couldn't believe the returns achieved for me in the selling of my antique "Shark Vertebrae Cane" and old "Telegraph Keys". Quick and profitable-Thank you"

                                                                                                                                                                                          -Ian R.

“Nido always does the research on the value of the items I have consigned with them, and located the buyers willing to pay what the item was worth. Always friendly, reliable and honest service. They have never mislead me on the value of my collectibles. I would not hesitate to recommend them!.”

                                                                                                                                                                                       -Hugh R.

“Imagine my surprise when a handful of coins with a face value of about twelve dollars brought me $88! Thanks Nido I'll be back.”

                                                                                                                                                                                   -Marilyn B. 

“We were recently introduced to Doug for assistance in selling a vintage penny slot machine that had been sitting idle in our basement. We had no idea what it might be worth, but were not overly optimistic that it would actually sell. Doug came to our house to view the machine, took it away to do some research and find a buyer. A this point we were mostly happy to finally have it out of storage. Suddenly we got the news that it had sold, and we were $315 richer! We were totally amazed and are now looking around to see what other hidden treasures we might have to pass Doug's way!."  

                                                                                                                                                                             - Lois & Don J.

We gave Doug some old WWll memorabilia and a set of silver cutlery to see what they were worth, if anything. That was on June 25, 2014. Yesterday, on July 7, Doug showed up on our doorstep with over $1,000.00 in cash. We didn't know Doug from Adam, but trusted him on sight. He didn't let us down. Doug is one of the good guys. Trust him with your treasures. He'll do the right thing.
