Personal Bio

I became interested in rare coins as a young lad of 13. It all began when I overheard schoolmates talking about a rare 1943 COPPER cent. It sparked a curiosity that has been with me 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 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 price lists and full-page ads in coin publications. 35-40 coins shows and auctions a year were also part of the agenda.

During the last 45+ 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!

As you can see, my interest in coins has always been broad-based. This allows FSRC to monitor a greater segment of the market and serve a wider scope of customers. I've helped thousands of enthusiasts form topnotch collections and blue chip portfolios.

Although never one of the mega-companies with umpteen 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.

I am LM #717 of the ANA, CSNS LM #127, a charter dealer of PCGS, an NGC authorized dealer plus a life member of other state and regional coin clubs.

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, KS.

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.
