CoinWeek Podcast #21: Follow up with Julian Leidman on that Uncool 1850 $20 Gold Coin

In one of the most epic fails in the history of coin collecting, the stubborn-headed owner of a conditionally-rare 1850 $20 gold coin ruined nearly all of its numismatic value by cracking it out of an NGC holder and attempting to “make it better”.

CoinWeek filmed a video segment with longtime dealer Julian Leidman of Julian/ Bonanza Coins in January. That video went viral.

In this episode of the CoinWeek podcast, we catch up with Julian and ask him about the feedback he received from collectors and dealers about the segment.
