Welcome! My name is Dennis Shaltanis and I am the owner of the Copper-Dollar.
I have been doing business as the Copper-Dollar since 1992. During the first 10 years I limited my efforts to mail order only. I retired in the summer of 2002, and since that time I have expanded my mail order business to include participating in 4-5 shows in the surrounding area, doing appraisals, attending coin shows in other states for buying purposes, and expanding to a website. I have resisted the temptation to do E-Bay auctions, as that can become a full time job.
My business is limited to U.S. Coins only, and is directed to the collector. I get into some foreign coins and U.S. currency in my appraisals, but that is all. I also handle some coin related items, and can provide any small quantities of bullion items if you are interested.
Bullion items must be ordered and can take up to two weeks for delivery.
I have the time, inclination and experience to help anyone build a fine collection of U.S. coins. I can give you an idea of costs and difficulty. I can help you find quality coins.
I do appraisals, both for the information and to purchase. My fee is $40 per hour for information or estates, and at no cost if I purchase the collection.
I publish a new price list five times a year in the months of January, March, May, September, and November. If you are interested in receiving this mailing please send a request by mail or e-mail.
All of my coins are posted on the copperdollar.com website, including many not listed on the price lists that are mailed.
I have adopted a policy of honesty and reliable service to the coin collecting community. I have a policy of prompt, no hassle returns if you are not satisfied with the coin(s).
