Greg Bennick Interviews Stan Kesselman

Stan Kesselman, a NY coin dealer, worked parttime in numismatics without a store front, quietly trading between the leading dealers and collectors of the day, beginning around 1960. Among his clients were the well-known collectors Harry W. Bass, Jr., R. L. Miles, Ted Naftzger and others. Kesselman specialized in rare date U.S. gold and was involved in transactions such as the purchase of the Naftzger $20 Liberty set, complete from 1850-1907.

Greg Bennick has interviewed a number of numismatic personalities for Newman Portal, capturing stories to inspire the next generation of numismatists.
