My first mentor in the coin business was a young man exactly my age. He had a wealth of knowledge about coins thanks to a special opportunity due to birth. He was Steve Kosoff, son of the famous dealer, Abe Kosoff.

In 1987 I was running a shop in the
area. Mrs. Norweb had passed away and
her collection was to be auctioned off by Bowers & Merena. Portland, Oregon
The previous post briefly describes the amazing Norweb Collection, assembled by three generations of astute and dedicated collectors. Mrs. Norweb was one of the great coin collectors of all time - she had a great eye for beauty and detail. Under her guiding hand beautiful and rare specimens enhanced the depth and breadth of the family holdings.
