The Drumheller Mail - - CLASSIFIEDS -

TC Pre­cious Met­als will be in Drumheller dur­ing a road­show. You can bring your gold, sil­ver, coins and bank notes to the Canalta Juras­sic Ho­tel Fe­bru­ary 3 and 4 be­tween 10 am and 5 pm each day. No ap­point­ment is re­quired. Terry Bur­rill is Pres­i­dent of TC Pre­cious Met­als head­quar­tered in Air­drie, Al­berta.

“TC Pre­cious Met­als has the unique ad­van­tage of deal­ing di­rect with a smelter” said Bur­rill. “That al­lows us to cut out mid­dle­men and have higher pay­out rates. TC Pre­cious Met­als pur­chases gold and sil­ver from other gold buy­ers, pawn shops, jewellers and jew­ellery mak­ers as well as from the gen­eral pub­lic.” Re­cent price in­creases of pre­cious met­als have cre­ated lots of “gold buy­ers” in­clud­ing mail in com­pa­nies. Many of those buy­ers offer pen­nies on the dol­lar to un­sus­pect­ing cus­tomers and are lim­ited to what they buy, choos­ing to ig­nore coins and only pur­chase gold.

TC Pre­cious Met­als an­a­lyzes your gold, sil­ver, coins and bank notes while you watch, with the process ex­plained to you in de­tail. Coins with nu­mis­matic (col­lectable) value are set aside from those with a ‘melt’ value. Sil­ver items such as jew­ellery and flat­ware are an­a­lyzed for hall­mark iden­ti­fi­ca­tion. Items thought to con­tain gold will also be an­a­lyzed for hall­marks, and then con­firmed us­ing pre­cise test­ing that is done while you watch. Then a cash offer is made and you de­cide to sell or not. Terry takes the road­show out one or two times a month across West­ern Canada.

“Peo­ple bring in all kinds of in­ter­est­ing items, but for the most part it is a bro­ken or old chain, unloved jew­elry, a sin­gle ear­ring, and out of fash­ion items like charm sil­ver and bracelets. We ac­cept den­tal gold but it should be clean. Lately I see more and more sil­ver flat­ware sets, but be­fore you bring those in make sure it says “Ster­ling” on the han­dle. There is a lot of sil­ver plated flat­ware that we can’t buy due to the low sil­ver con­tent” says Terry. An­other valu­able item is coin with sil­ver con­tent. Dimes, Quar­ters, Half Dol­lars and Dol­lars from Canada and Amer­ica can be sorted and the sil­ver con­tent de­ter­mined in no time at all. Peo­ple are en­cour­aged to bring in any and all coins for assess­ment.

TC Pre­cious Met­als can as­sess and pur­chase Cana­dian and Do­min­ion of Canada bank notes. Bur­rill has ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing with es­tate sales, ex­ecu­tors, wid­ows and wid­ow­ers in a re­spect­ful and car­ing man­ner. No ap­point­ment nec­es­sary.
