Lake Lure, NC
Robert Taylor


I’m a 1973 charter graduate (BSBA in Business Management) from the University of Central Florida.  I worked in various IT departments for 30 years before retiring in 1995.  Started collecting coins, stamps and jewelry in the early 1970′s as a hobby in the west Florida area.  I’m an active member and/or affiliated with many professional coin and stamp organizations and I’m the current Vice-president of the Asheville Stamp Club.


Started Classic Coins and Stamps to offer stamp, coins and jewelry appraisal services to those living in a 250 mile radius of Lake Lure, NC.  However, I have procedures in place to make it easy to receive such items from folks outside this area. Classic Coins and Stamps is located within the beautiful mountains of Lake Lure in Western North Carolina. Although I started collecting as a hobby,  it is now a full time business where I perform estate and bank authorized coin and stamp collection appraisals throughout NC, SC, eastern Tennessee and lower Virginia.

I am not a jeweler nor is Classic Coins and Stamps an online selling website. My services revolve around ascertaining the true market worth of coins, jewelry and stamps that different people have in their possession. I then offer to buy these items from those clients who are willing to sell after I  educate them on these types of items.  I always feel pleased when I meet or exceed a client’s valuation estimates.  I’m a buyer and seller on Ebay with a Top Seller and a 100% performance rating.  Price evaluations are also given for various types of jewelry such as rings, pendants, bracelets, and dental gold.
