Welcome to Fred Sweeney Rare Coins, Inc.

Personal Bio

I  became interested in rare coins as a young lad of 13. They sparked a  curiosity that has been part of my life ever since. I'm interested in  many areas of collectibles but rare coins have always been my first  love. The "coin bug" started in 1957, then became a passionate hobby for  several years until I was discovered by local coin dealers.By 1968 I  ventured out on my own to open Fred Sweeney Rare Coins (FSRC). Within a  short time I was producing 40+ page coin price lists and full-page ads  in coin publications. The agenda included 35-40 coins shows and auctions  a year. During the last 50 years I've handled virtually every U.S. coin  plus many milestone collections sold by private treaty. I've dealt in  thousands of individual rarities plus virtually complete collections of  everything from Large Cents to $20 Gold! I've bought and sold rare coins  with the sharpest minds in the business and can now share this  experience with you. 
I have recently been awarded my 50 year membership  of good standing in the American Numismatic Assn. LM #717 and the  Central States Numismatic Assn. LM #127. Although never one of the  mega-companies with countless employees, I believe I have been around  long enough to garner the respect of my peers concerning my good word  (many deals done on a handshake), good checks, quick payment, overall  knowledge, and fair dealings.You may have seen my coin related articles  in publications such as: The Coin Dealer Newsletter, Speculator  Magazine, Coin World and American Rare Coin Insider to name a few. Other  Numismatists have also published my opinions in their writings.On a  personal note,
I've lived in the Kansas City area all my life, been in  the same home since 1974 and banked in the same town since 1963. My  business account is located in Kansas City. Today, I continue to buy  and sell rare U.S. Coins with advanced and neophyte buyers in all areas  of the U.S. coin market.​
