Minneapolis Coin Shops (Wanted)

Can anyone in the Twin Cities recommend a good coin shop/dealer? 

I've been to Premium Quality Coins in the Skyway and they have a nice selection and breadth but looking for a lower markup in the area on small volume purchases.

Many thanks.

I forget the name, but the guys at the shop in St Louis Park on Excelsior Blvd (~1 mile E of 100) are pretty nice. I've been there a couple times just nosing around, but haven't bought anything. Seemed their premium was inline with the general market, but this was a few months ago. Call before you go.

Thanks for the response Dr.  I popped into that shop nosing around myself.  His premium was a touch higher than Premium Quality Coin but he was very helpful to this noob suggesting I get a copy of the Red Book which I took him up on.

I know Miles Franklin is a big boy in town, but I'm not sure if they have an actual store front. Last I looked on their website they had low premium but you'd need to spend a hefty chunk. They're in Wayzata.

Honestly, if you're just shopping for a little here and there, buy from Gainesville or eBay. Tax will kill you locally and shipping kills you online. I've bought 90% of my PM's shipped free online and I'll tell you, it really adds up in savings over time.
