Expertise

I can answer questions regarding grading,condition and value for United States Coins. I can also answer questions about selling coins on Ebay. I cannot answer questions about paper money or coins from other countries. In almost every situation, I will need to see at least a picture or a scan of any specific coin submitted, so please don't ask what a coin is worth without send a clear image of it along with your question.

Experience in the area

I have been an active collector for over 30 years, and a dealer for 20 years. I have bought and sold hundreds of coins.

Education/Credentials

I have a Bachelor's Degree and Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering
