Gold, coin, antique buyers returning to Red Oak
RED OAK — Anyone looking to sell unwanted gold, silver and other collectibles will have a chance to do so this week in Red Oak.
Representatives with the Ohio Valley Gold & Silver Refinery’s traveling roadshow will be at the Red Coach Inn Friday and Saturday looking to buy precious metals, jewelry, historical artifacts, antiques and other collectibles.
They will be at the hotel from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday.
When someone brings in an item, a roadshow representative evaluates it, makes an offer, and if accepted, writes out a check.
“Our job is to find buyers for items. We’re the middle man. We try to find someone in that market interested,” said Jeramy Weese, a show manager for the Ohio Valley Refinery & Roadshow
Weese said that when an individual brings in an item, the buyers will enter the details into their online system which connects with over 10,000 collectors. Items range from coin collections to vintage guitars and everything in between. “If we can get someone to generate an offer, they agree to the terms and we give them a check on the spot. However, if more than one collector is interested, the offer can go higher,” explains Weese.

Admission to the event is free of charge.
