MORE ON THE RECOVERY OF JULIAN LEIDMAN'S STOLEN INVENTORY

The Star-Ledger of New Jersey reported more details about the recovery of dealer Julian Leidman's stolen inventory. -Editor

Julian Leidman Court papers filed in New York identify the son of a Diamond District jeweler as the man who allegedly bought a multi-million dollar collection of coins and currency stolen in October 2009 from a Maryland coin dealerís van as he dined in a Montville restaurant.

What the papers donít show is who the FBI believe was responsible for the theft.

A complaint filed by FBI Special Agent Daniel X. McCaffrey, Jr. details how Yan Kandinov allegedly bought the cache for $80,000 from an unidentified individual who said they had ďsomething for him to look at.Ē

Kandinov then allegedly attempted to sell the coins to a New Jersey coin dealer, who in turn tipped off the FBI.

On Oct. 11, 2009, Leidman was on his way home to Silver Springs, Md., from the Coinfest show in Stamford, Conn. when he stopped at Tiffanyís Restaurant along Route 46 in Montville. As he dined with family members, thieves smashed the passenger window of his locked minivan and stole two 50-pound cases containing thousands of rare coins and currency. Leidman, the American Numismatic Associationís 2009 Dealer of the Year, believed that he had been tailed by the thieves after he left the coin show, who waited until he was eating to break into his vehicle.

Albert & Sons, a wholesaler of gold and diamonds, was bustling with customers on Nov. 15, the day Kandinovís trial was delayed. In his office, where a portrait of Al Capone hangs in the corner, Albert Kandinov declined to comment on the pending trial of his son.
