Meet the team!
Our team is comprised of 2 people;
Andrew Reed: Andrew is the chief buyer, broker, and operations manager. Andrew has a peculiar passion for coins and antiques in general. Originally enlisted in the Army in 2003 as a 19K Armor Crewman. Andrew went on to earn his commission in 2008 after graduating from the University of Oregon. Andrew has two Iraq deployments under his belt; OIF III with the 3rd Battalion, 7th Infantry Regiment of 3ID, and OIF IX with the 1st Squadron, 82 Calvary Regiment and one Afghanistan deployment with the 2nd Battalion 162nd Infantry Regiment. Andrew is now currently retired from the Army and pretty darn happy about it!
Lisa Reed: Lisa is the spouse of Andrew and handles the day to day operations at our physical location, including sales and shipping. So far she has nearly 9 years under her belt as a military spouse, and has kept things together on the home front and business end during Andrew’s deployments.
