 About Me

 In numismatics there is simply no substitute for trust and experience. I’ve been involved with coins and paper money on a full-time professional basis since 1973, and I am uniquely qualified to help you work your way through the auction process, or to sell your collection privately.

I served as an auction director of a major numismatic auction house from 1985 to 2007. During that time I saw or experienced just about everything that can happen in a numismatic auction.

I invite you to read my resume, contact me, and use my knowledge and experience to help you sell your entire collection with a minimum of effort.

On this website you will find the answer to many of the questions you may have about the auction process, but if there are further questions that need to be answered, or if you would like some professional guidance, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you.
