How to Eliminate the Middle Man and Get the Most Money for Your Gold Scrap

Have you ever sold gold scrap – maybe small bits of jewelry, some old dental fillings and bars, or some filings you swept up from an old factory floor? If you have, chances are you have an experience like one of these...

You walked into a store that advertises that it buys gold, where someone behind a counter performed a quick test on what you brought in, told you what it was worth, and paid you on the spot. But do you know what? That person turned around and sold the gold for 25%, 40% or even 50% more than he paid you for it. After all, that’s how that business makes money.

You called a company that you found online, described what you had, and were told that based on your description, your gold “should be” worth a particular amount of money. So you sent it in and – guess what? – you got a song and dance about why your gold wasn’t worth nearly as much as what you had been told over the phone. So you shrugged and took what you were offered. Maybe it was just too much trouble to have that company send your gold back to you and start all over again. And guess what? You ended up getting that same 25%, 40% or 50% of what your gold was really worth.

There Is a Better Way
