Antique dealer scouring the coast for collectibles
DUST off grandpa and grandma's old coins, medals, picture postcards, banknotes and cigarette cards, they could be worth big money these days.
International antique dealer Robin Levinson will be in the Coffs Harbour area over the next four days looking to purchase and evaluate these items.
On Friday and Saturday April 19 and 20 he will be at the Park Beach Bowls Club Sunday and Monday April 21 and 22 he will be at the Sawtell Bowling Club.
Mr Levinson will be there each day from 10am - 4pm.
"The rarest Australian circulated coin, the 1930 penny was worth a few
hundred pound in the 1960's, a few thousand dollars in the 1980-1990's, but today an average coin will bring $30,000," said Mr Levinson.
"War diaries, photographs and letters offer an insight into the characters of the men under fire and are also desperately wanted by historians.
"Australian banknotes of King George V period, 1910-1936 are hard to find in good condition and also command high prices.
"Commonwealth of Australia notes with a star in the serial number denote a replacement and are also very much a collector's item."
Mr Levinson said he would pay a minimum of $1,000 cash for Military medal (MM) for Bravery, Military Cross (MC) and Distinguished Conduct Medals (DCM).
He is also looking for Distinguishd Service order (DSO), Air Force Cross (AFC) and Distinguished Flying Cross medals (DFC) and would pay a minimum of $2,000.
