HOW TO ENLIGHTEN PEOPLE WHO THINK AGE EQUALS VALUE IN NUMISMATICS

Andrew Kimmel of Paragon Numismatics in Mequon, WI was interviewed
for an article published in the Ozaukee County News Graphic on August
29.  It's a good short introduction to numismatics for the general
public, but what I especially liked was Kimmel's way of disabusing
people of the notion that just because a coin is old, that it MUST
be very valuable:

"Though people may have valuable coins at home, Kimmel cautions
against those who think a coin is valuable just because it is old.

"What determines the value of a coin is not the age," he said. "If
age determined value, rocks would be valuable. What determines value
is the condition and the rarity of the coin."
