A Collector First, A Dealer Second. Owner George Huber is a collector first and a dealer second, strictly following the motto:
“Life Is Too Short To Buy Ugly Coins”
He will sell no coin that he would not buy for his own collection. He started collecting circulated Lincoln cents by filling up blue Whitman coin folders around age 10 and sold his first coins at age 12. He has been involved in buying, selling, trading, and collecting coins ever since.
A Former Heritage Auctions Cataloger. George possesses vast experience in U.S. numismatics and for more than 12 years was a full-time coin cataloger for Heritage Auctions—researching, viewing, attributing, and describing hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of U.S. coins. Among the signature coins and collections he has cataloged are portions of the Jules Reiver, Ed Price, Eric P. Newman, Tom Mershon, Joshua and Ally Walsh, Walt Husak, Donald Partrick, Steven Duckor (Barber halves and Saint-Gaudens double eagles), Eugene Gardner (Seated Liberty coinage), Galt’s Gulch (Type One Liberty twenties), and Lemus (David Queller patterns) collections. As part of the Heritage team, he cataloged, among many other rarities, two 1804 silver dollars, a Gem 1796 No Stars quarter eagle, an 1876-CC twenty cent piece, two 1913 Liberty nickels, two 1927-D double eagles, three 1943 copper cents, and the Canadiana Collection.
Specialist in Copper Cents, Type, and Toned Coins. George maintains a passion for Lincoln cents and copper coins in general (especially beautifully toned coins) but has wide experience buying and selling most U.S. coin series, including type coins, gold, silver dollars, Indian cents, Buffalo nickels, Mercury dimes, silver dollars, Conder tokens, and Latin American, Canadian, and British coins.
