About New England Rarities:
New England Rarities was formed in 2005 with the goal of offering choice, appealing colonial coinage and early Americana to variety and type collectors. Since that time we have placed many exceptional pieces in over 100 collections. Our goal today remains the same as when we started. We look forward to working with our old friends as well as helping new clients in their pursuit of these fantastic items from our past.
About Michael Wierzba:
Michael started collecting coins at the age of 3 months when he became the youngest member of the Civil War Token Society. After attending many coin shows over the years, Mike became interested in colonial coinage following in his father's footsteps in 1991. Careful study of die varieties in advanced collections led Mike into focusing on New Jersey coppers and St. Patrick's coinage. As a teenager, he had a bourse table at many EAC conventions. A move from New Jersey to the South Shore of Boston in 1999 help further his interest in colonial coinage and he began working with another well known colonial coin dealer. During that time Mike learned “the coin business” and began New England Rarities in 2005. He also published the New Jersey copper Condition Census for many years until turning over the information to a prominent collector who is in the process of publishing a book on NJs. In November of 2010 Michael was elected a Regional Vice President (New England Region) for the Colonial Coin Collectors Club. Mike looks forward to working with new and old board members assisting in the growth of one of the finest clubs in all numismatics.
Michael looks forward to helping collectors fill the tough holes in their collections, whether looking for the perfect type coin or tracking down that R-7 die variety, and anything in between.
About Gregory Field:
Gregory started collecting coins at the age of 5 when he found an 1865 Indian Head penny at an old family home in Upstate NY. He sought out Early Copper and in the 1990’s became enamored with all colonial numismatic areas and started actively collecting Vermont and Machin’s Mills coins by die variety as well Continental and Colonial currency. Several years ago, he began actively buying and selling colonials, 16th-19th Century European and Latin American coins, in addition to US Territorial Gold. Finding the “choice coin” with the perfect toning is something Gregory loves to do. Giving back to the numismatic community has also been important and he has served as both General Chairman and Assistant General Chairman for two ANA shows in Charlotte, NC; served on the Board of Directors for North Carolina Numismatic Association; and been a long-standing VP in the Charlotte Coin Club. Gregory was also recently asked to assist in maintaining the official C4 website. He lives with his family in Charlotte, NC and is a Senior IT professional for a large financial institution.
