A native of historic Chester County Pennsylvania and a graduate of the University of Virginia, John has been sought out for his expertise on early numismatic Americana since his teen years.

As a regular columnist in the ANA journal The Numismatist
and the national bi-weekly Coin World , John has been honored for his research and writing by the ANA and the Numismatic Literary Guild. Several auction catalogs penned by John have become classic reference works, including The LaRiviere Collection of Betts and Indian Peace medals, The Eliasberg Collection of World Gold Coins, and The Roehrs Collection of Regulated Gold. John has been elected by his peers as a member of the Rittenhouse Society, an honorary fraternity of numismatic researchers, and as a Fellow of the American Numismatic Society. His counsel has been sought by institutions such as the Smithsonian Institution, Colonial Williamsburg, The Massachusetts Historical Society, Monticello, and others, and he has been quoted on numismatic topics by mainstream media around the world, including CNN, The Associated Press, National Public Radio, and BBC.
