I am interested in buying a lot of American Gold Eagle coins. I live in Irvine CA.
The local gold dealers in my city tell me I should come into their store, bring them a check, and come back one week later to pick up the coins.
They say they need one week because they have to use my money to first buy the coins from their wholesalers, and resell to me at a large markup.
How can I find out who are the wholesalers? Is there any way I could buy direct from them?
