NAICS: 423 Merchant Wholesalers, Durable Goods
Description: Strike and sale medallions
Back before I started this business, I was a big time coin collector.  I was to the point that I worked at the ANA Coin Conventions designing the badges that the workers at the convention would ware. Teaming up with an old friend of mine we started Masterpiece Medallions in 1963.  Turning our hobby into a career wasn't easy, making many mistakes in the early years, however our goals were to spread the joy we shared in collection coins and medallions to anyone wish to buy our stricken medallions.  After working with my partner for many years I bought him out of the business due to his older age.  Since that time I have been the sole owner/operatior of the business.
