Rare Coin Inventory:  Bret Leifer was a public accountant for a number of years. This demonstrated attention to detail comes in handy in the selection of rare coins. Every coin listed is hand picked for lack of marks and eye appeal- that we would want for our own collection. All the other coins we buy end up in the inventories of the usual suspects!
