About Us

OUR HISTORY

My coin collecting hobby started in a very unlikely place, Sears & Roebuck, on 21st Street in Downtown Norfolk.  The year was 1971 and I was given a brand new Eisenhower "Ike" Dollar by my dad who received it in his change after buying a newfangled Texas Instrument calculator.  As he handed me the coin, he smiled and said; "This is what silver dollars looked like when I was a boy."  From that moment on,  my weekends consisted of visits to flea markets, antique shops, coin shops, and the Virginia National Bank Vault.  My favorite trips were to Norview Coin in Norfolk's Southern Shopping Center and Bob Cardwell's Hillbilly Shack in Suffolk.


As I grew older my collecting interests became more diversified, but coin collecting took a turn in August of 1984.  It was on this date that I met my future wife, Michelle.  Little did I know, her father,  was a coin dealer who specialized in investment-quality coins.  It was he who would teach me how to grade, authenticate, and select premium quality coins.  He also introduced me to a dealer friend, Harry Laibstain, who became a close friend and helped further my numismatic knowledge tenfold.


In April of 2009 a casual family dinner conversation turned into a plan to open a local coin shop.  By June the necessary contracts and business license were signed and Princess Anne County Coin was established.

PROPER WAY TO CLEAN COINS

Several times a week I'm asked how to clean coins.  Well, the answer is surprising...YOU DON'T CLEAN THEM!  Silver, gold, and copper will all "mellow" with age and each will grow a "skin" of patina if left in a normal household environment.  Removing this patina-skin-tarnish will also remove detail from the coin and any remaining mint luster which may linger on the surface or around the devices.  

DATE, QUALITY, ORIGINALITY, & EYE APPEAL

These four categories are used as the most important criteria for grading, pricing, and collecting coins. 


In the year 2018 most numismatic coins have been cleaned, dipped, or otherwise processed.  This is why coins with totally original surfaces are harder and harder to aquire.
