Testimonials Letters to Us

I wanted to take a moment to complement your organization and most particularly, Curt Mease.  I have had the pleasure of dealing with Curt for the last couple of years and have found his knowledge of coins to be excellent. More importantly, however, Curt has repeatedly demonstrated that he is interested in not only my business but has also shown an honest concern for my personal well-being.  I am so impressed with Tangible Investments that I have referred several of my family members.  This is the ultimate compliment I can pay to you and your employees.  In conclusion, I personally believe it is important to differentiate between businesses. In today’s business climate, in which an utter lack of customer service is ubiquitous, Tangible Investments stands out as a welcomed exception!

Dear Mike,
 
I thought I’d drop a quick line to tell you how pleased we were with the results of the sale of coins we consigned to your recent auction.  We are also pleased about the level of service provided by you and other staff members with whom we have had contact. 
 
From the time of our original purchase of the coins you recommended and their subsequent sale in the auction, the transactions with you and your staff have been pleasant and highly professional. 
 
Again, please accept our thanks for the time and excellent advice you have given us in the recent years.

 The following letter to our company president, Silvano DiGenova, is from an actual customer who sold his collection through us for $2.3 million.  He had previously purchased the same collection from us for $1.5 million over a 7 year period. Dear Sil,
 
Just a brief note to let you know how pleased I was with my experience with you and [your company] up to and including the auction.  Your visit with us, the evaluation of the coins, the cataloging, and the advertising were all terrific.  Furthermore, I could not be happier with the auction results, which I considered to be nothing short of spectacular. 
 
I would like to thank you … and the rest of your excellent staff for all your fine services on my behalf.  Mike Bonham deserves special praise for the help he gave me in accumulating the collection. 

Kindest Regards,

Allan M. – Blacksburg, VA 

I don’t think I’ve ever done anything like this before.  It’s almost like a commercial, but Jim and I had a great experience at Tangible Investments, down on the Coast Hwy. in Laguna, the other day. So, if you have any old coins (that’s what we took in), silver, gold, etc. and you just want to talk to someone about it, Curt Mease will be happy to take a look and give you a current value.  No obligation. Or if you just want to take a look at all the stunning pieces they have in the shop …  They are at Center Street and PCH, at 1910 S. Coast Hwy. 949-715-5333.  I thought we were treated very nicely, companionably almost, and we sure wondered, before we found Curt, where to go with the “old coins.” 

Glenda Mc. – Irvine, CA

 Dear Mike,
 
 I just wanted to drop you this quick note to express my thanks for all you have done for me during the last two years or so during which I have been dealing with you and your firm.
 
In that period of time you have given me valuable advice in shaping my collection and have sold me a number of excellent coins at what I consider to be very reasonable prices.  In addition, with the help of Mr. DiGenova you have been able to arrange the upgrading of several of my valuable coins; for example, an 1838 Gobrecht dollar which had been graded PR62 was updated to PR64, and an 1857 Seated dollar which was previously PR63 is now PR64.  As you well know, this raises the market value of each coin by a number of thousands of dollars.
 
Please know that I have enjoyed working with you very much and expect to continue our happy relationship in the future.
 
Thank you very much.
 
Sincerely Yours,

Allan M. – Blacksburg, VA

I would recommend Tangible Investments, LLC to anyone seeking expert advice and pricing for their collection of coins.  We did a thorough search for a reputable dealer by calling coin dealers throughout OC and LA Counties and found Curt Mease at Tangible Investments the most reliable choice to handle our coins.  Curt patiently answered all our questions and inspected each and every piece in our collection.  Curt was professional and courteous and it was well worth the trip to Laguna Beach.  Although we did not bring jewelry with us on our first visit, we saw on display gorgeous pieces offered and all appeared to be of the very highest quality.  I would not hesitate to recommend this company and we plan on doing business exclusively with Curt n the very near future. Thank you Curt!!!

Carrol C. – Seal Beach, CA 

Dear Mike,
 
These past 8 years investing in rare gold coins with you has allowed me both the financial and personal freedom to maintain a high standard of living.  As a real estate investor, had I not invested the majority of my profits with you and instead placed them back into my real estate business, I would have been in a deep financial crisis (sic).  Additionally, you have educated me on the importance of looking at investments in gold coins and bullion as not only a way to make considerable profits, but also as a hedge against a very uncertain economic future.  Looking at the weakness the U.S. dollar is going to face, along with fears of inflation, investing in precious metals seems more prudent than ever to protect my financial future. 
 
Thank you again for being a reliable and trusted consultant that has helped protect and increase my financial position.
 
Sincerely,

David P. – Del Mar, CA 

I had an extensive coin collection that I inherited and was not exactly sure what I had.  I brought it in to Tangible Investments and met with Curt.  Curt was fantastic!  He not only took the time to go over the coins but also explained which coins were valuable.  Additionally, there was no pressure for me to sell.  You can tell that (sic) Curt is very passionate about what he does and he cares about the customer’s interests.  I would highly recommend Tangible Investments to anyone who is looking to sell or appraise their coin collection.

Dear Silvano,

On behalf of the the members of Mission Viejo Country Club, we wanted to extend our appreciation for an entertaining and very informative luncheon presented a few weeks ago. We were thrilled to conduct our 'vintage road show' and have someone as interesting and knowledgable as you are, directing the discussion!

Your comments were so enlightening and some of us now can throw away that 'thing' we have been harboring because we were told it was a relative's treasure and in reality it is a garage sale item! Thank you, Thank you.

We so appreciated the wonderfult raffle extended to the Club and we can't thank you and your associate, Alex for being there with us for such a delightful afternoon. Please also thank Dennis Tarrant for us in helping to coordinate this event.

Thank you again, Silvano, for an afternoon beyond our expectations. Sincerely,

Cynthia C. Ryder

“We both would like to thank you so much for enriching and beautifying our life and home with all the extraordinary ‘affordable art.’  The overwhelming friendliness and kindness of you and the store’s staff made our experience very relaxed, happy, and pleasant. … Never in our wildest dreams did we think we would be owners of one piece of Erté [let alone] several different media of Erté.  Now, we can sit in the comfort of our home to enjoy all the beauty and history that (with your help) [put] our dreams within our reach.  Thank you once again for all your help.”
