Kevin was born and raised in Connecticut and
was introduced to coins at an early age by his parents who were both
collectors. With an appreciation for history and a strong collecting gene, he
was easily hooked and numismatics became a life-long pursuit. Throughout high
school and college, he spent his summers working at local coin shops and became
acquainted with the business side of the hobby.
Upon graduating from Wheaton College (IL) in
2009, Kevin went to work for Sam Sloat Coins as numismatist and manager. There
he gained a broad knowledge of all areas of numismatics, while developing a
specialization in colonial and early American coinage. In 2013, he founded Inde
Et Lib, Numismatists, becoming a highly respected expert and market maker in U.S.
colonials and early federal copper, handling countless rarities and bringing
several important collections to market.
Kevin is well known for his talents as a
grader and authenticator and has discovered several deceptive counterfeits that
had gone undetected in the marketplace for years.
Kevin is a life member of the American Numismatic Association,
Early American Coppers, the Colonial Coin Collectors Club and many other

He is a contributor to A Guide Book
of United States Coins and
to the Whitman

Kevin lives in Connecticut with his wife and three children. In
his spare time, he enjoys running, music, and various collecting pursuits.
