MBRC was established in 1977. Since then MBRC has grown into one of California's leading rare coin buyers, priding itself in having a wide range of numismatic expertise which enables it to "BUY THEM ALL". Customers are paid immediately and transactions are dealt with in a timely manner.
As a dealer, Mike has dealt with coins from the common to the very rare and has the financial backing to accommodate any size transaction. He is the person other dealers contact for an opinion or to whom they will sell coins. Because of the growth of his business, Mike is expanding from his current status of acting primarily as an intermediary between dealers to establishing a direct method for the general public to market their coins. By dealing directly with Mike, you will be able to benefit not only from his experience but you will very possibly realize higher prices for your coins than would be the case with other dealers.
MBRC also has extensive experience in dealing with appraisals for banks and trust departments as well as the liquidation of large estates. At MBRC, you are assured of accurate and fair appraisals and discreet handling of your valued collection.
Customer service is first and foremost at MBRC. All clients are treated with courteous, professional service and all transactions are held in the strictest of confidence. MBRC provides references upon request. If you are selling or need help liquidating an entire estate, let MBRC assist you!
In 1998 Mike was introduced to cigar box label art. Cigar box labels are the beautiful, stone lithographic labels that were used to adorn old cigar boxes. While MBRC is Mike's main business, he loved the labels so much that he started a second company, InStone, Inc., to help promote the hobby of collecting cigar box label art. It's called cigar box label ART because many of them are mini-masterpieces done by some of the most talented artists of their day (circa 1870-1930). These labels come from an exciting period of this country's history. Many of the labels depict the rich history and flamboyance of America at that time. You don't have to be a cigar smoker to enjoy these beautiful images! Visit Mike's cigar label art site at Visit InStone now!
