Coin and Paper Money Collecting/Expert Profile


Ask A Question

Expertise

I can answer anything relating to modern US coins and paper currency and collecting it. I can also answer some questions about Israeli currency. Please do not ask me about ancient currencies, as this is outside my area of expertise.

Experience in the area

I have been an avid collector for many years, and while I specialize in US coinage, right now I am also focusing on silver bouillon. Silver is actually a better investment than gold, which is something a lot of people do not know!

Organizations

Civil Air Patrol

Education/Credentials

Bachelor of Arts from Fairleigh Dickinson University, 2009.

Awards and Honors

General BIlly Mitchell Award - #48332

What do you like about this subject?

I love the history and the art. Every coin, every piece of currency has a story to tell.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I hope to learn more every single day.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

To a collector, coins are often worth more than face value.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

If you look at paper money from around the world, I happen to think that the US has the ugliest. There's no real color, pizzazz, no nothing.

There's really no such thing as a common error, but your case really stumps me.  I don't recall ever seeing anything like it, and can't even find anything with it.    That said, I'm not in a position to
