  1. I greatly admire this man and his dedication to numismatics. To create his own academic program and to get a doctorate in numismatics takes a real gift on his part. I, in my way, am also a numismatist in my own life because I am a collector of coins. I have loved coin collecting since I was a boy and it has not changed now that I am an adult. It’s a wonderful hobby for any who has an interest in numismatics.
