Healing Haiti

Posted by Scott Stebbing on Mon, May 18, 2015 @ 09:49 AM

We are very proud to announce that our own Jacob Stebbing
will be taking a three month sabbatical from Stebgo this summer to help in the
relief effort in Haiti. He is going to be working with missions teams in the
Port-au-Prince area and will be involved with the orphanage at Grace Village in
Titanyen. The organization he is working with is Healing Haiti and they have
been partnering with the Haitian people for over nine years by delivering clean
water, providing orphan and elderly care, feeding programs, community outreach
and development, as well as sharing the love of Christ.  Healing Haiti is
currently in the process of building a Church and school in Cite Soleil, one of
the poorest slums in Haiti.

Changes to MN bullion dealer law

Posted by Scott Stebbing on Mon, Jun 16, 2014 @ 08:02 AM

There have been some sweeping changes to the
bullion dealer law here in Minnesota. These new requirements have been the topic
of much discussion with my Minnesota coin, pawn and jewelry clients. I have included
some government links for you to access and look over as these changes take
effect starting August 1st. Many other states are watching this process in MN
closely, as they are also considering making changes to their Bullion dealer
requirements. I would appreciate any feedback or further information on this
topic so please feel free to add your comments.

Posted by Scott Stebbing on Tue, Oct 29, 2013 @ 08:59 AM

Stebgo Alert 18KW Fake Chains Encountered. We have had another group of 18KW fake chainscome into our facility. This particular style of 18KW fake chainwas hitting the pawn shops and jewelry stores a little over a year ago. The fake chainis a Stainless/Chromium mix that is not magnetic and does not react with nitric acid at all. They are generally, heavy men’s styles, and are often stamped 18K or 750. Some have had a stamp that says Italy but we have not seen one with a manufacturer’s hallmark.
