If you have gold, silver, antiques or other rare collectibles around your house, the Ohio Valley Refinery & Roadshow wants to see them.
The Ohio Valley Refinery & Roadshow is in McMinnville this week in search of rare and unique collectibles. The refinery has the resources to pay top dollar for your gold, silver, and collectible items.
“Gold and silver markets have not been this strong for over 30 years,” said company spokesman Dennis Kouts.
The OVR is a place where anyone in the community can connect with collectors from around the globe. Specialists make offers based on rarity, collectability, condition and market value. If the price is right for you, OVR will pay you on the spot with no hidden fees.
A few recent finds for collectors have included a rare gold coin collection purchased for $107,000 and a letter written by George Washington to the doctor of his wife expressing his disdain toward the doctor’s actions regarding her treatment. Also at a recent show in Ohio, a local resident brought a letter from Abraham Lincoln she thought was a fake for over 15 years and walked out $25,000 richer after finding it was an authentic letter.
You might be amazed by what you find and ecstatic with what the Ohio Valley Refinery & Roadshow wants to pay you for it. OVR specialists will assess your items for free.
Nearly all coins and paper currency, vintage jewelry, war memorabilia, musical instruments and toys made prior to 1970 are highly sought after.
The Ohio Valley Refinery & Roadshow is able to offer good prices as it has its own refinery. Refineries typically do not do business with the public. Rather, they deal with precious metal accumulators like jewelry stores, pawn shops, dentist offices or industrial facilities that trade with some form of precious metal.
All local area businesses that deal with precious metals are encouraged to call ahead and make an appointment with a representatives. There are no appointments needed for the general public to sell their items. The event is free and there is no limit to the number of pieces that can be brought.
The roadshow began yesterday and will continue until this Saturday, March 10, at Best Western Tree City Inn on Sparta Street.
