Our Humble Beginning

Michael Kaufman remembers when he was a little kid his father bought him a small coin collection at a local garage sale in Randolph, New Jersey… I must have been in fifth grade at the time, and I knew nothing about coins, let alone the different types, grades, or composition. Well, I kept that little box of coins all the way through high school. It consisted of a couple old thick Morgan Silver Dollars, some wheat pennies, a bunch of standing liberty quarters and a bunch of weird looking foreign coins.

During my high school years I was also into collecting things like baseball cards, fossils, Herkimer diamonds, and slowly, I started growing a coin collection. Around eleventh grade I stumbled upon a local coin collector/dealer in my town. He was more than just a dealer, he was a true Numismatist. Mr. Lane knew so much about coins! Within seconds he could tell me the grade of the coin, the type, and its ballpark value. This guy was real sharp! It turned out he had over 40 years of experience in the business, attending coin shows and traveling all across the United States buying lots. I learned so much from him over the years; he was, and still remains, “The Real Deal.”

I also had an “Uncle Eric” that lived a few states away, who had a beautiful collection that was a “US Type Set.” His enthusiasm for coins was contagious, and he really sparked my excitement about coins. When I would visit he would crack open the safe and with a big grin he would say, “Now check this out!” He was so excited, he would actually be shaking and semi-out of breath as he showed me all the new coins he had added to his coin collection. He had almost all of the different US Coinage over the last few hundred years. He had some real gems in there, I’ll tell you.

I was also fortunate enough to have bumped into another coin nut whose name is David. If it’s possible, I think he likes this business more than I do. He’s a coin nut alright. In his spare time he’s either fishing or he’s got the metal detector out, digging up something that “Might Be Gold.” Dave and I have since teamed up in the coin business, buying coins from people across Upstate NY.

For the last 15 years Michael Kaufman has been traveling around, buying coins, bullion and collections wherever we can find them. We are currently servicing the Finger Lakes Region of Upstate NY. Most of the sellers nowadays tend to be collecting and selling silver and gold bullion coins as they are extremely popular and easy to liquidate We buy both these bullion coins and the older rare coins as well.
