My Coin Journey – Part Two
By Warren Mills
What does it take to become a professional numismatist?
I was very lucky and thankful to be hired by a very prestigious rare coin firm. It gave me the opportunity to rub elbows with some of the best U.S. coin numismatists in the world. I knew right away that if I wanted to stay in the coin business, I had to open my mind and my eyes to learn all the nuances I could about grading. Another important factor for learning was accessibility to a large inventory of coins. This allowed me time to spend many hours examining coins and showing them to top notch numismatists to get their opinion as to why a coin was a certain grade and why it may not be another grade.
