Heritage Adds Richard Adams as Senior Numismatist
Heritage Auctions has announced that Richard Adams has joined its Beverly Hills office as Senior Numismatist.
“Rich brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Heritage Auctions. That, coupled with his professional, friendly and engaging personality, will help us provide an exceptional level of customer service to collectors throughout the western United States,” Heritage Auctions Vice President David Mayfield said. “This part of the country is home to numerous exceptional collections, as well many serious collectors, and adding Rich only increases Heritage’s ability to bring the two together.”
Adams comes to Heritage Auctions from Salt Lake City, Utah, where he served as a buyer, a grader, a wholesaler, and an appraiser of U.S. and World Coins, Currency, Stamps and an occasional diamond or pocket watch.
Adams’ career in numismatics grew out of his own collection, which includes an array of world crowns, world gold, and large coppers, all having to do with colonialism and expansionism of the 19th and early 20th centuries.
Adams returned to the professional numismatic world after a hiatus where he completed his Master’s degree in Public Administration at the University of Utah. He also has degrees in comparative religion, Spanish and Portuguese.
Adams will be in charge of appraisals and consignments for U.S. and World Coins, Currency, and Stamps in Heritage Auctions’ Beverly Hills office. He can be reached at (214) 409-1811 or via e-mail at RichardA@HA.com.

Sell Your Collectibles from the Comfort and Safety of Your Home
There’s never been a better time for spring cleaning … and selling some valuable treasures and collectibles from the comfort and safety of the house you probably haven’t left in a while.
Even now, Heritage Auctions has seen an extraordinarily high demand for sports collectibles, comic books, movie posters, coins and currency, fine art, jewelry, rare books and historical artifacts. Other assets keep dropping in value. But in just the last few weeks Heritage has set record prices for everything from concert posters and baseball bats, and the market shows no sign of slowing.
That’s why we wanted to let you know how you can submit your items online for a free auction evaluation from one of our more than 125 experts.
At no charge, we will review your collection and give you an auction evaluation and/or make an offer. Otherwise we will recommend a more appropriate sales outlet — even if that happens to be one of our competitors.
If you’d like, we will send sanitized packing materials, instructions, and a prepaid FedEx shipping label. And once your consignment has been pre-approved by your Heritage expert, we will arrange the pickup of your package. Just know this: Your safety is our main concern. FedEx has implemented a variety of measures to minimize any risk for its team members and customers.
The contents will also be insured at our expense by Lloyd’s of London.
We’re happy to answer any questions you have about this process. Just drop us a line.
