INSIDE LINCOLN APRIL 2014

INSIDE LINCOLN

hat does one do after being in the auto leasing business,baking business and thenretiring?If you’re Jim D’Ambrosia, youopen up Lincoln Gold and Coin. “I’ve been retired for 11 yearsand think I retired too early. I stillhave a lot more to give,” D'Am-brosia said. “It’s a fun and exciting business.” Anyone watching “Pawn Stars,D’Ambrosia said, “will understanda little of what will be going on inthe store.”Lincoln Gold and Coin purchas-es and sells coins, precious metals, jewelry and unique collectibles. “If you can carry it into the store, we want to see it,” D'Ambrosiasaid. Unlike “Pawn Stars,” the store will not purchase large items suchas cars, cannons and other uniqueitems seen on the television show. Additionally, Lincoln Gold andCoin will not be a pawn shop. Inside Lincoln asked D'Am-brosia what the catalyst was forstarting his own collections. Lin-coln’s new business ownerexplained, “My very first unique,and expensive, collectible was acarved ivory letter opener thatcame out of the estate of OliverHardy.”

The friend he received itfrom told D'Ambrosia tohold onto the letter openerbecause it would be very valuable someday. D'Am-brosia had it since he wasin his 20s and today hasapproximately 150 ivory letter openers.“People have spent alifetime collecting thingsthat were/are very impor-tant to them,” D’Ambrosiasaid. “However, our chil-dren don’t have any inter-est in them. When the timecomes and the things arepart of the estate, the sur-vivors may just toss theitems.” “My advice is to disposeof the things while you’restill alive because youknow the value and thenleave the money for thekids if that’s what you wantto do, or better yet, spendit because if you don’t, they  will!” D'Ambrosia said with some amusement.Since the idea of thestore came to him in 2010,D'Ambrosia said helooked “for just the rightlocation.”That location was in thehistoric part of Lincoln.The new business is in theold alterations section of  Almas Bridal Shop on 547Lincoln Blvd. “I hope the business is well-received by the Lin-coln community. So many people have been excitedabout the fact that we’reopening,” D'Ambrosiasaid. “I plan to offer a serv-ice to people who are look-ing for a ‘fair and honestshake’ of things they nolonger need ...jewelry, col-lectible items.”Pay Lincoln Gold andCoin a visit by bringing inone of your treasures orlooking for something elseto add to your collection.
