    Anyone in my age group may have heard of or done business with Virg. He was the first coin dealer I ever had contact with and as a kid I did as much business with as I could afford. He was an inspiration in this hobby, had a personal touch and was a pioneer in mail order coin sales. Always fairly priced and accurate grading. I purchased many rolls of cents from him early on and only recently got through them all. And it seemed none had been searched as I found many great errors and varieties amongst them. He passed on July 5th at the age of 84. This was included with my price list yesterday. Rest in peace Virg. img913.jpg

    Bought some ASEs from him in the 80's. No problems. Sold 'em long ago. Best wishes to his family and friends.
