Here's another old-time coin dealer who's still around to tell us his stories. Harvey Stack of Stack's-Bowers recorded a three-minute video at last week's Baltimore coin show where he discusses collector Lamont DuPont.
It tells the story the first time I saw and met Lamont Dupont and the attention
both my father and uncle gave him, and how he preferred a coin with a touch
of circulation rather than a perfect one. It shows how collectors, regardless
of how much money they have can think. I feel it is a great story for those who
might feel as he did.
