CERTIFICATION: Effective February 1, 2023, we will be implementing an
updated certification policy. We reserve the right to certify items that were
not purchased directly from our company or to recertify items that were later
resold by a third party. We may also offer replacement certification services to
those who did directly purchase the items from our company, at our discretion.
However, in such cases, we may require proof of clean title on the items before
proceeding with recertification. The resulting certificate will indicate that it
is a duplicate. The photo certificate will be dated, signed, embossed
and also marked with a holographic unique sticker by
Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC. For bulk material, large quantities, or high-value
items, we may offer better rates depending on the circumstances.
-For coins, paper money, medals, and tokens with a value below $100, we do
not provide certificates. However, we will offer verbal authentication at coin
-For coins, paper money, medals, and tokens between $100 and $1,000 in value,
the cost of certification will be $45 per certificate.
-For coins, paper money, medals, and tokens between $1,001 and $5,000 in value,
the cost of certification will be $95 per certificate.
-For coins, paper money, medals, and tokens over $5,001 and up to $10,000 in
value, the cost of certification will be $175 per certificate.
-For coins, paper money, medals, and tokens over $10,001 and up to $20,000 in
value, the cost of certification will be $250 per certificate. For items valued
over $20,001, there will be a charge of $250 plus 1% of the additional value.
Artifacts will have a flat fee of $250 per item up to $5,000 in value. For
items valued over $5,000, there will be a charge of $250 plus 1% of the
additional value base on current market value.
Note in all cases and tiers the current market value will be established by
Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC based on
recent sales of similar items (either private or at auction).
Please note that we must inspect the item in person in order to perform
certification, and any costs related to shipping and insurance will be billed
separately. We reserve the right to certify already mounted or modified items,
like pieces of jewelry, framed coins or any type of items that show any form of
alteration or repair. Other exceptions might apply to the certification service,
certain type of coins or artifacts might not be suitable for certification.
Approved items should be sent by registered and insured mail to the address
appearing on this page. Please minimize the use of staples and adhesive tape as
these add to the difficulty of opening your package. Coins should be listed with
a brief description and an estimate of the value for which you would like them
insured when being returned to you. If value is not accurate an adjustment will
be performed based on current price replacement value. All submissions must be
prepaid with check or money order made payable to "Daniel Frank Sedwick, LLC"
