eBay Shopping Experience

One of things I wanted to share was my coin shopping experience. I've bought from at least six companies over the web and through the mail.
The first of these stores is the world famous eBay their motto "New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices. The link is http://www.ebay.com/.
The Google ads on the side often have an eBay coin auction. I've never bought a coin from eBay but I did buy a book. This book was over $50 everywhere else but one guy on eBay sold it for $7.00 I bought and within a week I received it. I gave him a positive comment and he gave me one for my quick PayPal payment.
From the people I know who have bought coins from eBay they all had positive experiences with both private sellers and eBay stores. Problems on other forums complain that some higher-end coins are overpriced and it is possible to buy coins that are damaged by cleaning. Those problems are fewer then I thought.
I hope to buy some coins through eBay but I'm looking for low-end coins or bulk world coins. I will use PayPal again since it is easy to use and set up and the unverified account limits will keep me from spending too much.

0=Avoid at all cost, 5=Best Choice
Overall Ratings: 4 out of 5
Pros: Many choices, their ratings are a guide to good sellers, older coin books for cheap.
Cons: Dealing with with strangers(although slightly exciting), shipping charges are erratic.

Do you have a coin and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

I have bought several items from ebay.com I had very good experience on all of them so far. I did have very bad experience buying items from Amazon.com It used to be good but lately 2 of the items I bought came very late, well one came after paying an expedite shipment after like 3 weeks when it was supposed to arrive in 3 days. The other one I am still waiting until now.

I kind of agree. All my eBay buys went smoothly but the Amazon stuff has been slow and I lost one package. To their defense Amazon sent a second replacement order for free and I did get that one.
