"Regarding the articles on women in numismatics there were two ladies active on the California scene, Alva
Christensen and Ethel Stone, doing business under the name Christensen and Stone, setting up at shows and
having a number of mail bid sales over many years. "
Larry Elman of Laguna Hills, California writes:
"I would like to add two women coin dealers to the list, both of whom I knew well. The first is Alva Christiansen and her partner Ethel Stone, of Temple City, California who published mail bid sales under the name of Christiansen and Stone. When I first started holding mail bid sales of tokens and medals myself, in 1969, I first met "The Girls" as they were called by everybody, I would visit their shop frequently to buy exonumia and just spend a couple of hours in conversation with them. It was always fun, and they taught me much about tokens and medals. Alva was the sharp business- person of the pair, and Ethel was the friendly personality of the duo, and they were active in the Coin and Exonumia business approximately from the 1960's through the 1980's, No listing of women coin dealers would be complete without them.
"Another coin dealer who ran a coin store and held bourse tables at many Southern California Regional coin shows
in the 1970's through the early 2000's,
was Nona Moore of Fontana, California. She was a lovely woman who was quite comfortable and successful in the
male dominated Coin and Exonumia business. "
Turns out we'd mentioned the Christiansen and Stone duo earlier.
