About Dr. Eugene Bruder
Like many collectors, I started collecting coins as a 12 year old in 1959 when the Lincoln Cent had a change in design. I was quickly hooked, and by my later teenage years I was collecting Liberty Seated proofs and some Bust coinage. I was also entranced by postage stamps, enjoying the intricate engravings on the early issues of the US and Canada. I delivered three paper routes daily in order to have enough money to buy coins and stamps.
College caused me to have to dispose of my collections in order to pay for school. After my internship in Hawaii, where I met my wife Diann, I again picked up the collecting bug while deployed in the Army in Alaska. Coins and stamps kept me busy as a hobby until I moved to California in 1986, whereupon I began dealing in coins part time by attending local coin shows.Read More
