Welcome to defcat numismatics!

After years of sales on eBay, where I still have an active storefront, I have decided to give you the ability to purchase coins directly from my website.

Navigating the pages is easy - just use the drop down menu at the top of the page under "DEFCAT."  These will take you to specific pages for each type of coin - for example, if you click on "World Coins," it will take you to an area with world coins for sale.

I ALWAYS consider trades for silver and gold bullion, and I ALWAYS consider reasonable offers.


Thank you, and happy shopping!



Let’s just be honest - I thought this would be fun. Here’s what I’m thinking:

Every Friday, I’m going to give away FREE one US/World silver coin (my choice) with ONE order placed through my website.

If there is only one order on Friday, that person is going to get a free coin.

If there are multiple orders, I’m going to get them all prepped for shipping and then randomly pick one winner to receive the free silver US/World coin.

The coin will be my choice, and I’ll do my best to not make it a junky piece of crap coin. Some free coins will be better than others…but hey, it’s FREE SILVER.

Winners so far:

August 2, 2019 - 1964 Silver Proof Kennedy Half Dollar (toned) - Reddit user u/socksbro

August 9, 2019 - 1945 S Walking Liberty Half Dollar (toned)

August 16, 2019 - Mexico 1923 1 Peso

August 23, 2019 - Philippines 1907 S 1 Peso

August 30, 2019 - 1840 Seated Liberty Dime

I am happy to provide professional-quality eBay consignment services.  My usual rate is 10% of the Final Value Fees, with eBay and PayPal fees paid by the consignor.  I handle photography, listing, customer service, and packaging/shipping.  Upon completion of the auction, I will send you an itemized PDF file with each coin description, eBay item #, listing dates, FVF, plus a breakdown of fees, shipping costs, etc. 

I can also sell your coins outside of eBay, whether through my own website, or through coin forums, Craigslist, etc (or a combination of all depending on the coins.)  My commission would still be 10% - but there would be no eBay fees to contend with.

I prefer that you include (either via email or with the package) a list of the items you would like consigned.  If you have specific goals for pricing (i.e., what do you need to get from each item) I can price the auctions accordingly so you are taken care of.

I advertise each consignment in each online coin forum of which I am a member to ensure that there is a solid collector base that is aware of your consignment.

Once the consignment is completed, I can send you payment via PayPal, check, or money order, whichever you prefer.

If you would like to consign coins, tokens, or paper money, please contact me here. If you have specific goals or requirements for certain items (i.e., you have to get a certain amount for a certain coin), please include that in your pre-sale inventory.

I have created two pages, one for Current Consignments and one highlighting some of my favorite Past Consignments.  Feel free to take a peek to see what kind of listings I have provided.
