If we get to the point where we provide such a service, international shipping would be included in the service charge. As we would ship back items in bulk, this lowers the cost. Can't stand Paypal, where possible, try to avoid it like the plague.

Hi Richard,

If you can manage to get this to work where items will be delivered to U.S. buyers securely, I will definitely sign up for this service.

I think this could work for copper and, maybe, silver coins. My experience is that personal export of silver (as in carried out) is tolerated by Chinese customs. Success is not guaranteed, however. I am constantly stopped and then waved through after a consultation. From what I have seen, bulk quantities would require an export license for each shipment. That is a truly iffy proposition.

I am very skeptical that any significant amount of gold will be allowed to leave the country. Dealers have their methods for shipping out gold, but it is not risk-free and becomes more difficult all the time. There is a reason why the Chinese auction houses turn away foreign business.

In any case, good luck! It would be a welcome service.

Best wishes,

It would be very nice if CCL can work with coin001.com for the purchase of Chinese circulating coins. I am definitely interested.

Circulting coins will be the easiest ones. As gold and silver are restricted item for passing border.

For at least one auction house, I was offered the chance to select items I wanted and set my price, and then Snowball would bid for me and ensure the coin then got sent to my residence here in the USA. The price for this service, a percentage of the hammer price, was quite reasonable.
