The David Lisot Video Library on the Newman Numismatic Portal can be found at:
We highlight one of his videos each week in The E-Sylum.
Here's one from 1987 where David interviews actor Buddy Ebsen, dealer David Hall, and others.
David reports numismatics to a national audience. He also interviews Carl Fismer, Buddy Ebsen, David Hall, and more.
The video includes a segment with
Florida treasure diver Carl Fismer,
the American Numismatic Association's plans to "grade the graders" and administer a "Master Numismatist" program.
The highlight is a nice talk with actor Buddy Ebsen on the upcoming sale of his coin collection. Ebson played Jed Clampett on The Beverly Hillbillies and detective Barnaby Jones. One highlight of his collection was a $4 Stella, but he also appreciated the appeal of circulated coins, such as his $50 slug with nicks in it - a piece of history attesting to its actual use in commerce.
Ebsen discussed his Attica Greek coin, made from a melted-down statue of Athena. For investment, he recommended quality ancient coins.
Great interview with an entertainment giant and enthusiastic collector.
