Question for the "knowledgeable about estate sales" people:

(I couldn’t think of a better way to phrase that…also, if this needs to be moved elsewhere, let me know.)

How does one find a reputable non-scammy non-sleazy-feeling company that runs estate sales? And are there any major “gotchas!” we need to watch for?

We have been put in charge of arranging an estate sale for a deceased relative…we can’t do it ourselves as we live out of state…and i dunno, they seem so…i just haven’t found one we trust to do a good job without ripping us off.

U.S. Proof Sets Question:

We recently inherited a “set” of Proof Sets (US Mint, untouched, unopened condition) from about 1970 - 2020…some years multiple sets.

I brought them to a local coin dealer who offered face value (except those special ones that had some silver in them). That doesn’t sound exactly right.

i don’t want to spend the next year parcelling them out on eBay just to get a couple extra bucks with a lot of aggravation.

i don’t want to have a crate of this stuff sitting in a closet.

What do you here with experience in these matters suggest?

Questions re: cheap(er) eyeglasses:

Back some time ago (a couple years?) there was discussion here about how to get cheaper eyeglasses.

It involved getting the prescription the regular way thru an optometrist, then ordering them thru the mail.

Any suggestions on where? What the process is? How much $$$ can I expect?
