To say that we’ve been busy the past few weeks would be an understatement. Of course, we haven’t been too busy to celebrate the fact that our (rather, my) Braves made the World Series for the first time since 1999! As a Tennessee/Atlanta fan the past 15 years have brought about a lot of heartache, but it would be a nice respite if they could pull off four more games. Of course, you don’t read this email to hear about baseball…but with the Atlanta airport being our second home for connecting flights, hopefully you can appreciate the DLRC relationship with the city.
We were lucky enough to have a friend drop into our office two weeks ago. Christian Hartch, the YouTube Extraordinaire that founded the numismatic channel, Treasure Town, stopped by to spend a day with us. We had a blast introducing Christian to DLRC! While he was here, he gave us a few technological tips so that we can hopefully improve our coin video marketing in the next few months. Christian was yet another one of the young people I was able to meet while at the Witter Coin U this summer. His grasp on reaching out to new collectors through a medium that most coin dealers can’t figure out is amazing and it’s something that we’d love to help him grow in the future. In the meantime, he’s finishing up college and we hope to see him continue his numismatic adventures through YouTube. And, to throw out a shameless plug, he did an interview with me that he posted. I was honored to participate and if you take the time to watch, please send along any feedback!
After being on the road last week and reading Jason’s message, it really made me think about the business/hobby as a whole. Unfortunately, we see many collections that get looked over or get ignored for one reason or another. When dealers treat collectors as a one-time profit-center, it really doesn’t sit well with us and is not helpful for the longevity of the hobby. While we truly enjoy the art, history, and value that numismatics brings, these relationships with collectors like Christian are of the utmost importance. That’s what will keep this amazing hobby active over the years. While we may refer to collector-friends as customers, clients, or something else, it really just boils down to one word for us in the end: relationships. We hope to build long-lasting relationships with you and we hope that these relationships will blossom and continue to grow with the hobby.
Thanks again for reading and Go Braves!
