Good guy coin dealers. Week 2

8 posts in this topic

Every week I will be posting a coin dealer who is truly a good guy. Over 25 years as a collector and 14 years as a dealer, only a few worthy dealers make my list. No dealer has asked to be on this list and this list is merely an opinion based on personal dealings over many years. This week's coin dealer is:


Sal Germano

S & G Rare Coins.

625 Layfayette Ave

Hawthorne, NJ 07506

Phone #'s: 973-304-0520



Owner owned and operated. Deal with the boss.

Specializing in mid to high level graded US coins, ngc and pcgs.

Very, very fair, works on a small markup.

Attends major and regional coin shows.

Very honest and good, friendly personality.

Truth -- can you give any contact details on Sal Germano?


I did a google search, and see that he seems to be located in Hawthorne, New Jersey, which is quite intriguing, as this is just next door to where a couple of borad members grew up!


(thanks - you read my mind! )

I'm glad to know that you know Sal and think highly of him as he's a friend of mine! smile.gif Sal's a great guy and I have bought some wonderful coins from him, including the 1932 Washington, priced at bid, in the attachment. I see Sal fairly frequently and he and I will probably both have tables at the GSNA show in mid-May.

Hi mike,


I posted last week Sal Falcone of San Jose. If you want another dealer, post what location you are living, and I might accomodate.
