D & F Coins is a small company committed to numismatics and fellowship, all while maintaining a profitable return for our company and our clients. We handle and maintain U.S. rare coin investment portfolios for a small number of clients, advising them on current market conditions, trends, and pitfalls. The best tool for being a successful rare coin investor is knowledge. We have always followed the philosophy of Aaron Feldman "Buy the book before the coin". Knowledge is still the best tool that you can arm yourself with in today's rare coin market. We believe that without knowledge, you will never do as well financially, as someone who has studied and read the facts. We can help you plan for your future by advising you on good purchases, as well as an opportune time to dispose of your holdings, for cash out for a trade into other areas of the market. Collectors are our main clientele and we would be pleased to help you find that special coin for your collection, or to find a new home for your unwanted coins. We offer estate and collection appraisals for insurance. If there is a subject you need help finding the facts on, we can provide the research and the results. If D & F Coins can help you in any way with numismatics, please don't hesitate to contact us.

I have great intentions for this web site and expect to see many changes in the future as we try out different ideas. We welcome feedback regarding this site, its creation, or about any of the contents contained here. Since I began teaching myself HTML, it has been fun and educational, but I can always learn from others constructive input.
I track the values of many coin issues through custom spreadsheet and database templates, primarily: Key dates, type, Morgan dollars and VAM's, Walkers, Mercuries, $20 Lib's / Saints and popular error / varieties. I track the values through the use of many different sources ranging from retail guides like the "Redbook" and " Coin Prices Magazine" inculdind wholesale guides like the "Graysheet", the "Bluesheet".
