Editorial review from Citysearch 10/17/2012

Trust me on this...Jules died years ago. He, unfortunately, left the keys to the castle with a bunch of completely inept loons. more

TERRIBLE COIN DEALER 4/23/2012

Rude, dishonest and I will not be returning to this dealer. I have been collecting coins for over 20 years, and the salespeople of Jules Karp tried to mislead me and were extremely rude when I attempted to point out the inconsistencies in their pricing. Do yourself a favor and avoid this shop. There are plenty of good coin dealers in Manhattan that operate under strict regulations, and this is not one of them. more

Don't trust them. Dont accept 1st offer. 11/25/2011

I went to Karp to sell my dads coins. They gave me a price. It was kind of low but I accepted it.$285. Two minutes later the woman came back and said oh that's a little high. I'll give you $235. more

PLEASE LEARN FROM MY MISTAKE! Horrible Experience 8/18/2011

I don't normally engage in this kind of online review-writing, but based on the dealings I've had with Jules Karp Inc I felt morally compelled to register to a website like this to warn others of this awful company. My experience with them began almost two years ago, when a friend of mine and I were investing sporadically in silver. He had done some business with them in the past, and I was enough of a rookie in precious metal investments to wholly trust his judgement. As noted in another review, the office is a cramped, dingy basement ordeal without even standing room for more than 4 customers at a time. My friend and were looking to each buy a 100oz bar of silver, which we did; his was an Engelhard and mine was a generic 100oz slab of metal with 'Certified Ingots' stamped on it. We both paid the same price, $2800. This seemed a little odd to me at the time, but I was repeatedly assured this was standard procedure by the clueless, frazzled woman who is essentially the only employee there that will talk to you on the phone, which is frustrating enough in itself. Anyway, my friend had no problem holding onto his bar for about a year, and selling it right back to them. On the other hand, when I tried to sell mine to another bullion merchant closer to my home, they wouldn't take it. I spent weeks calling and talking to different buyers around all of New England, and folks were either not interested from the moment they heard it was generic or turned me away the minute they saw the physical bar. The worse part was calling the office and talking to that woman about trying to sell it back to them. She outright denied any wrongdoing on their part, and refused to buy the bar back from me at any price (""Oh, I actually have enough silver right now, I'm not interested.""). I am now stuck with a very effective, but VERY overpriced paperweight. I'll have to end up sending it to a refinery, and they'll test it, and even if it is pure .999 silver they'll pay me wayy under spot per ounce for it, and I won't make any money at all off the 2 years time and money invested and the hours I've spent stressed out trying to get rid of it. AVOID JULES KARP at ALL COSTS! more

Oy Vey Wouldn't Go Back 1/26/2011

The guard directs you to the service elevator where you press a button on the side of the elevator and the service elevator takes you to the basement of an office building. He directs you down a long hall, make a left, and it's the first office on the right. Now sign on the door, just a mezzizuah, a large security sticker (no barking dog) and a door bell. A woman answered the door looking all fashimeled and fakakeled and tells you to come in. You still don't know that you've come to the right place. As somebody has already indicated on this site and other review sites, this underground crypt is a mess and basically you have to ask for what you want as they don't display their coins. ""What do you want"" I reply ""I am interested in buyin some silver, what do you have. Do you have bullion, ingots or what?"" She replies ""how much do you want"" ""well, can I see what I am buying, and then maybe you can tell me how much over spot you charge and how much the coins are as well."" Too much information. ""Do you have a cold today"" I ask. She starts kvetching ""No it's just too much snow"" She looks totally overwhelmed and if the office is any indication of what's going on within them then things are very much in disarray. I ask her can she show me some Morgans and Peace dollars. Goes back into the back room where the family is busy at work. The guy comes out and slams three piles of coins and mumbles ""25, 26, and 27"" and then goes back into his angry commatose state in front of his computer. more

Jules Karp is Fabulous 7/6/2010

I love these guys! I've bought elsewhere, but since discovering them, I've never bought from anyone else. They're friendly, willing to spend time with you (assuming it isn't a crowded day), and they're an endless fountain of knowledge about what's going on in the world of coins. My friends and I make frequent ""Karp Runs,"" to buy more coins whenever we have extra money to spend. I don't understand the guy who gave Karp a bad review. It so doesn't match my experience. Pros: Wonderful people, honest, great prices Cons: Can't think of any more

AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL EXPERIENCE 9/19/2009

Called up Jules Karp and he told me he had 1 oz gold pieces. Told him I wanted to spend a substantial amount of money. Told me to come in, Cons: Unprofessional, rude, and waste of time more
