Cambridge is a city in northeastern Massachusetts, situated in the wider Boston region. It has a population of roughly 105,000 as of 2010. It is home to several celebrated colleges, including Harvard and MIT.
Like much of Massachusetts, Cambridge has many sites of historical importance and was home to many famous Americans both before and after the American Revolution. During the 19th century, the city was the site of the largest glass manufacturer in the world. It was also home to the ice-cutting and bricklaying industries.
During the 20th century, its industrial sector continued to grow, adding on the sectors of confectionery and ink production. Many of the United States’ major candy and cookie brands originated in Cambridge, including Junior Mints, Necco Wafers, Tootsie Rolls, Sugar Babies, and Nabisco.
The city was also an early home for female education; from 1879 until it merged with Harvard in 1999, Radcliffe College in Cambridge was a major university for women’s education.
Sales Tax on Gold and Silver in Cambridge
Massachusetts does not apply a sales tax on sales of gold or silver coins that total $1,000 or more. This may put some collectors at a disadvantage if they prefer to trade for cash, which often involves smaller investments over time.
