Here are some additional reader contributions on women coin dealers.
Tom Caldwell writes:
"In regards to your article on women coin dealers past & present, I would think several others will get mentioned by other readers. One that comes to mind is Katie Duncan who is married to Danny Duncan from the northwest. Their company Pinnacle numismatics was in business for sometime up until recently. Katie recently semi retired & I believe is now dealing only with past clients or former contacts.
"Also Matt Deroma's a dealer from New Jersey that passed away a few years ago. His wife sets up at some area shows with remaining inventory of Matt's.
"There is another woman whom I don't really know her name, from the mid Atlantic area, that sets up in Baltimore against the wall on the right."
Bill Rosenblum writes:
"Sylvia Haffner in the 1960s and early 1970s was a specialist in Israeli coins and who wrote the best book ever on the subject around 1970 or 1971. She was from the San Diego area but later worked with NASCA whe Herb Melnick ran that company. Ironically she sold her collection to World-Wide Coins in Atlanta rather than NASCA. If I remember correctly she wanted to sell it outright rather than auction it. My Dad and I made an offer for the collection but were outbid by World-Wide. I then bought most of the collection after it was in a fire. Some rare Israeli and Palestine banknotes were very crisp.
"Also another woman coin dealer who also dealt in Israel (and other) coins was Aldona Davis who operated The Very Most Shop in Pittsburgh and before that in Chicago I believe. I bought my first big group of coins and notes from her when she was retiring in 1971 or 1972.
"I believe Frank Sternberg's daughter is Claudia.
"Francisca Bernheimer has run Gerhard Hirsch Nachfolger for many years.
"There was a woman in western Canada who sold world coins. Her name was Christina B------. I can't remember her last name but I think it was an eastern European name. I believe that Gorden Dickey who either worked for her or was her partner came to shows in the US. This was in the 1970s and perhaps the early 80s.
"Tom and Anna Sluszkiewicz of British Columbia ran (still run?) ATS notes a mostly mail order business. I used to see them in Chicago at the Chicago International Coin Fair."
