People from this area sold thousands of old coins to the brokers at THR & Associates last week during the collectors’ roadshow in the Microtel Lobby.
“We bought a lot of older coins, nothing super-duper rare, but some rare stuff,” THR Broker Jeffrey Maynard said Saturday with one more day left for the roadshow here.
Maynard and his associate, Brice Lanier, agreed that the most exciting item was something they didn’t buy. Someone brought a gold coin that had been stamped in Dahlonega, when the nearby city was the home of a gold rush, but no deal was made for the coin last week.
