What a story! Elderly man started collecting coins as a young boy, and has a collection worth millions, and is one of the most prolific authors of coin books.

His Wife of 70 plus years probably looks like Sofia Vergara?  Like you said - a few million dollars would sure ease the mind and body.

When I was young going to the coin store I was buying baseball cards (another part of the shop)...that didn't work out nearly as well.

That's pretty funny! Know how you feel. My brother had a box full of old baseball cards from the 40's and 50's stashed in the attic and when my mother passed he went searching to no avail. Mom probably tossed them years ago. Whenever we get together and talk about the old days, we always bring up that "frantic" search of the attic. He was grief stricken twice so to speak. So much so that I have boxes stashed with big markered labels on them, "DO NOT THROW AWAY!" Just in case I forget!

And Joe, That fella Newman had a target and kept on shooting at it. When you just never give up a hobby, you reap the rewards. Very good article about perseverance and what comes of it.
