Odds & Ends 1/28/17

I've picked up on, or been outright told, about a few tidbits of numismatic goings on and wanted to share.

CoinZip.com

On the surface they list coin shows and auctions, as well as house extensive dealer and coin club directories. This alone makes them extremely useful, but the fun doesn't stop there. If you have a coin club, the folks at CoinZip will help you set up a website completely free of charge. They even get you set up on social media if you need help (the social media help applies to dealers, too).

Sound good? It is. But we're not done yet. CoinZip also boasts an online auction platform.

N.C.N.A. Annual Coin Show and Auction

I'm not in North Carolina and my guess is you aren't either (I know I will be wrong in some instances, so just go with it for now). For the first time, the North Carolina Numismatic Association will be hosting an online coin auction in conjunction with their annual coin show. Here is a clip from the information I received:

Each consigned item will be photographed, described in detail, and displayed on www.coinzip.com/auction and www.NCNAonline.org/auction.

Interested bidders can register and place bids in advance of the coin show dates. During the N.C.N.A. Annual Coin Show & Convention, all consigned items will be displayed for viewing at my CoinZip show table. Computers will also be available for customers to bid during the first two days of the coin show. At the close of coin show on September 9, 2017, the online auction ends and high bidders are notified by e-mail. Winning bidders have the option of attending the final day of the show, September 10, 2017, to pay and pick up their merchandise, or send payment with added shipping costs to cover their mailing expense.

Lookzee App

This is more of an update than new information. The app is still in beta testing for iOS (Apple mobile devices). The website is live, though not super functional yet. They're getting a foothold on social media. You can Like/Follow them on:
