those sites - they seem to have a decent inventory.

thanks in advance

I'm an abacoin affiliate (rather, my website is). They do seem to have good
high grade stuff and that is the main reason I decided to affiliate with
them as I do not carry the slabbed, really expensive, high grade individual
coins myself. Just don't do enough volume yet to justify it. Maybe one day.

Anyway, you can go to http://www.kelleyscoins.com, scroll to the bottom of
the screen and click on the banner ad there for abacoins. That way, I get
credit. Or you can just go to www.abacoin.com if you don't want to share the
wealth <eg> .

Your description is of no value, since you named Coin World, which is a
newspaper and doesn't sell coins.  How about providing URLs to the people
you're asking about for a little better answer.

Abacoin doesn't sell coins exactly. They are a listing service. Lots of coin
dealers, us included, have coins listed there.

Coin-universe doesn't sell coins exactly. They have an "affiliated "
company, I think it's called North American Certified Trading now that David
Hall has sold out his interest. They also list several dealers ,us among
them, who they recommend and who's transactions they guaranty up to $10,000.

Coin world doesn't sell coins exactly. Dealers advertise in coin world and
you buy from them.

I imagine that people experienced with the three can give their conclusions
without having to make a return trip, BF.

But, since you ask:

http://www.abacoin.com/
http://www.coinuniverse.com/
http://shop.coinworld.com/

My reaction to them is that the coins are priced slightly higher than you could
find at a bourse.  I imagine they are charged a hefty fee for sales through the
sites and look to recoup it with a higher asking price.  I know one dealer on
abacoin has a site of his own with lower prices for the same coins.  Each
purchase you make there will only be as good as the person listing it, same as
every other online or brick and mortar coin dealers.

My description apparently was of some value, as three other people were able to
answer it (and without the "I'm angry at the world" attitude). Funny how they
all figured out what the url's were, AND knew that you can get coins for sale
through Coin World.   My suggestion to you, my good man, is to settle down and
stop being so angry (and learn a little more about coins).

Even funnier is how at least one poster had to explain that NOT ONE of the
three places you listed sells coins, and explained that they are all simply
listing services for other people who are actually the sellers.  Therefore,
your original question, "has anyone had any experience buying coins from
abacoin, coin universe, or coin world at all?" makes no sense, since none of
the three sell coins.  It would be like asking "does anyone have any
experience buying groceries from the New York Times, The Philadelphia
Enquirer, or the Cleveland Plain Dealer?", since all of them happen to have
ads offering groceries, yet none of them sell groceries themselves.

This was what I was asking, because I knew of no URL where Coin World sold
coins, so I could only guess that you made an error in the name, and
actually meant someone else.  Before I could give an good answer, I had to
figure out who you were talking about.

As far as your smart-aleck remark about learning a little more about coins,
I'll cheerfully match either what I know OR have forgotten about coins
against the numismatic knowledge of someone who doesn't know the difference
between a seller of coins and a seller of ads.  Especially when that someone
is hiding behind a hotmail account.
