Find the stamp
Once you’ve identified an area where stamped gold is likely to be scarce (the source of your family legend), start asking local businesses for assistance in purchasing potentially rare stamps.
Chances are these business owners are also collectors, and can ask about prices and people’s opinions on certain stamps.
Some places keep their collection secret, as they don’t want other thieves trying to copy what they have.
Others will openly share their collections with others.
Write down the date
It is very important to write down the gold’s exact date of birth for two reasons.
First, under Turkish law only your stated age determines how old you can be held liable for certain responsibilities or obligations. Therefore, in order to avoid any legal complications later, it is best to state your true age.
Second, by stating your age, you will be able to prove that you are legally eligible to work with gold (or anything else for that matter). The older you are, the more likely you will be asked to put in long hours and take on higher responsibility.
In conclusion, giving a correct date of birth for yourself is extremely important. Otherwise, you may not earn as much money or possibly lose out on credits because of an error on their part.
Also, when dealing with investors, they will ask you about your birthday. This way, they can calculate your years so they know how old you are.
Finally, having this information on hand can help save time when you deal with them. You can quickly tell who is being honest and who is lying.
Make a note of the serial number
It is very important to keep your gold’s serial number as you move forward with selling it. If there are no notes, this could easily be missed by an appraiser.
It also helps when trying to sell your gold. Having the serial number makes it easier to list your gold in any auction or market place.
Also, even if you bought your gold from a private seller, having the serial number allows authorities to track down the owner if they need to verify their information.
Check the coin values
There are several places you can go to check the value of your gold or silver coins. Online resources are very popular these days.

Prices are usually shown as either current market price or original cost. Current market price refers to the selling price of an item at auction. Original cost is the amount that was originally paid for it.
Auction houses maintain databases of historical costs so they know how much things have increased in value. Many antique dealers use this site to learn the estimated value of ancient artifacts like gold bullion.
It’s important to understand the entire process when researching antiquities. Historical value is one part of the equation, but overall strength depends on whether the alloy (silver or gold) has been reduced through refining processes, which lowers the amount of metal needed to make up a given weight of dimes or pounds.
Alloy analysis shows the fineness of the grain structure, which can increase its durability. There are experts who can help you determine the age of metals, identify fakes, and distinguish between originals and reproductions.
They can analyze an image or impression by impressing it into clay to see what type of mold was used to produce
Check the coin grades
An Uncirculated Coin is in perfect condition
There are approximately zero un-circulated coins out there. Ever wonder how many uncirculated Coins exist in the world? There’s not that many; it’s estimated only 0.3 percent of all coins produced are unaltered proof dates (also known as UNC or novus types). That means fewer than three thousandstrikesoutof every millioncoins ever made are currently circulating with little to no defects.
Most Proof Quality coins were circulated after they faded from popularity, which brings us to an important point: If a coin looks bad, it probably is.
Many Defective Coined have already been withdrawn from circulation due to their imperfections. Others still remain in banks and vaults across the globe. You can find them by looking for US libraries containing rare coin collections.
Ask the coin dealers
There are many online resources that offer information about recognizing gold coins. Most of these websites recommend checking both the front and back of a coin to determine whether it is actually made of gold.
Some also suggest that you should check the dirt content of the metal in your coin, and that you shouldn’t send it to a coin dealer for re-bulling as manufacturers don’t guarantee their products will be meltable.
I would like to remind everyone that bought one of these ‘trashy’ or fake currency items that they can buy these things on Amazon, eBay and other places and try to re-sell them later with a lower price.
The reason this practice hurts all those who take part in it is because there are no regulations anymore for issuing counterfeit money (backing away from counterfeiting by putting logos and designs on our currencies).

File a claim with the gold dealer
Most dealers will file an affidavit with the court showing you are selling your jewelry for less than market value. This allows you to get more money for your items. In addition, buyers who purchase goods from such markets usually cannot sue for differences between the price they paid and the actual value of the item(s). It is up to you to prove that you bought cheap imports or fake goods (check your terms of payment!).
Thereafter, you can try getting out-of-court settlements against their offers. You may be able to get smaller claims such as refunds or replacement prices.
If you get stuck in Court, then professional help must be found.
File a claim with the gold dealer
Most dealers are very honest. They’ll let you hold onto your gold until it is processed and readmitted to trade, but only for a fee.
However, there are some dodgy ones that want to bypass the hassle of filing a claim with the gold company. They will pay you less for your metal and probably won’t wait for your paper work.
BUT, what happens when they can’t find your country’s coins or certificates in their drawer? You could be waiting months before they become available again. Also, give them as much time as possible to evaluate your claims!
File a claim with the gold dealer
This is one of the more controversial steps in our process, but it’s an important one. Once you realize your gold is worth less than what you originally paid for it, you will need to file a claim with the company that purchased your jewelry or coins from you.
You can do this online through the website of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). They have many resources including tips for free so you are prepared.
There are only two requirements for filing a claim; It must be signed under oath and include proof of identification.
This claims form can be found at regaldeals.com. For now, save any signatures and ID that were used to make the purchase. If you don’t have them, then get them back from someone else who already has them.
The processing time for this claim is about 2 months. It depends how busy their attorney is which is why you want to start this as soon as possible.
