Which of the “top payers” really offered the most for scrap gold in BBB test?

The real winner in today's SR story about a BBB secret shop to see which gold buyers paid top dollar, was American Coin & Vault. The north Spokane business made the highest offer — about $510 for a pile of jewelry appraised at $593.

But American Coin's owners don't even advertise they buy scrap gold. Their philosophy is: People already know about us. We get enough of the scrap jewelry business as it is. (They prefer buying coins or bullion instead of scrap.)

The next big winner is Red Line Coins and Jewelry, which offered $465. Red Line (located on Garland Avenue) is one of the lesser-known buyers. Its offer of $465 is the highest among the seven area buyers making the top-dollar claim who were surveyed by the BBB last month.
