David Lawrence Rare Coins is a family business founded in 1979 by David Lawrence Feigenbaum in his spare bedroom. David, a Ph.D. in Marine Biology, was a passionate coin collector his entire life, who made the jump to coin dealing when his collecting desires exceeded his limited professor's budget. Sadly, Dave passed away in 2002 from a long battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). Dave's son, John, oversaw the company's growth until 2015. In August of 2015, John became the Publisher of the Coin Dealer Newsletter and passed along the operation to John Brush. John manages the company with the help of an extremely dedicated staff of 15 employees. Our management team has a cumulative total of over 80 years with the company. We are deeply passionate about all aspects of coin collecting but we are equally focused on bringing the latest technology advances to our hobby, and the best customer service possible.
