Michael Dixon has been a collector since Christmas Day 1964 when his brother gave him a Blue Whitman Lincoln Cent folder. Mike started dealing coins in 1972 under the name "Mike's Coins" in Oak Hill, West Virginia, doing mail order, shows and flea markets. This lasted until 1983 when he joined the United States Army.
During 1984 and 1985, Mike was a "Vest Pocket" dealer in the Shreveport, Louisiana Area. Moving to Hawaii in 1985, Mike started dealing at the Aloha Swap Meet and doing shows. From there he opened a store outside Honolulu named "Hobbies Unlimited." Mike owned this store until March 1993. Then, he transferred to Fort Knox, KY.
Once in Kentucky, Mike opened "Hobbies Unlimited" in Radcliff, KY and ran Michael Dixon Numismatics as Mail Order. He operated this store until he received orders for Korea in March 1997.
Mike packed his store and operated at the weekly show in Yongsan, Korea until his return to the states in March 1998. Since retiring from the Army in March 2003, Mike has promoted coin shows, coin auctions and can be found dealing coins at the New Market, MD Coin Show.
