Here are some of Lincoln’s most reputable coin dealers:
Lincoln Coin and Bullion, LLC was founded in 2006 by Scott & Deb Olson and was purchased by Pat and Jennifer Moran in Fall 2019. Pat, a Registered Mechanical Engineer, aspired to own a business and as fortune would have it, the Olson’s were ready to retire. Having owned the business for 14 years, they are a great resource of knowledge and Pat is unequivocally committed to maintaining the same level of expertise and professionalism that the Olson’s brought to the company as the founding owners.
Over the years, Lincoln Coin and Bullion has invested in costly equipment, such as an Thermo Scientific XRF Analyzer, to authenticate the metal content of coins and bullion. XRF (X-ray fluorescence) is a non-destructive analytical technique used to accurately determine elemental composition within a few seconds. As many others have, we also have a Sigma tester. We also have two ultrasonic thickness gauges.
They are members of the ANA, NCBA (Formerly ICTA), Nebraska Numismatic Association, and have maintained an A+ BBB rating.
