Visit www.DavidWebsterTax.com for more information on my tax and investment practice. I have served the Galesburg area since 1994 including 4 years of experience working for one of the nation’s leading CPA firms.

Prior to starting my own business, I graduated from Carl Sandburg College in 1984 with an Associate’s degree in Accounting and Western Illinois University in 1986 with a Bachelor’s in Business Marketing. In addition, I graduated from the U.S. Army School of Engineering and Logistics and worked as a civilian for the U.S. Army for 6 years.

Ever since I was a child I had an interest in U.S. coins. When silver was still abundant in change in the 1970’s, my father always taught me what to look and listen for. When I was the executor of my father’s estate in 2008 I was tasked with selling a large collection of unorganized coins. It didn’t take long to figure out that there was no place in Galesburg that paid well for coins, including the traveling shows that come periodically. After checking out every coin shop from Peoria to the Quad Cities and even a number in Chicago, I could see that the payouts varied greatly. How is it, I asked, that so few shops paid top dollar and also that those shops were very close to each other in their payouts?

With a combination of good wholesale connections, low overhead, and applying the same high ethical standards that I use in my other lines of work, I am proud to say that I can meet or beat the payouts of any of the dozens of shops that I have encountered since 2008!

I have served hundreds of happy customers in the area and will gladly now serve clients anywhere in the United States.

Tip – for security reasons do not reference Galesburg Coins if mailing in coins (same goes for mailing valuables to any coin/gold business).
