Manchester Coin - Michael Wilke, owner
Michael Wilke, owner

Manchester Coin & Jewelry owner Michael Wilke is passionate about buying and selling vintage wares of all kinds and making sure customers receive the highest prices possible. He calls the store a “one-stop place to do your liquidation evaluation.”

“You can bring me a violin or a guitar and some gold and an old toy and some military memorabilia and a big diamond – and we’ll buy it all,” Michael said.

Unlike other buyers, Manchester Coin & Jewelry assesses fine jewelry and watches in terms of resale, not meltdown value. Of course, gold and silver in any form are always welcome, along with coins, gemstones, diamonds and old paper money.

Manchester Coin & Jewelry also buys vintage stringed instruments, American Indian artifacts, military items, Lladro, Hummel and Lalique, or anything vintage and collectible.

“We try to tell people, ‘Don’t make the decision for us.’ It’s hard to determine sometimes what is worth
money and what’s not when you’re looking at things in the basement,” Michael said.

Younger generations are not necessarily interested in inheriting items, either. Don’t let items continue to lose value over time. Let Manchester Coin & Jewelry help with your collectibles now. Clearing out a lifetime of clutter is daunting. Michael’s advice is, “Don’t try to tackle it all at once; try one drawer – or one room – at a time.”

Manchester Coin & Jewelry does not run estate sales but will come out to a house to assess what a person’s belongings are worth.

If you have vintage/antique pieces of any kind to sell or evaluate, Manchester Coin & Jewelry invites you to call and set up an individual appointment.
