Re: Nick Brown

Dear friends,

It is my sad duty to announce that Nick Brown, the President of Majestic Rarities, passed away today. He was one of the great positive influences on the development of modern Chinese coin collecting, both in the USA and Asia, and his presence and vision will be sorely missed. I will miss him most of all as a friend.

I will add more details about Nick's life and accomplishments in the next issue of China Pricepedia and World Coin News.

Best wishes,
Peter Anthony

That is indeed sad news.

My most sincere condolences to his familiy and those who were closest to him.

That's indeed a great loss. I got one of my very early coins from him, and have been a fan of his blog ever since. He will be missed.

Miss that guy .........................at the Philadelphia ANA show ,I had a pretty rare coin in my pocket and I went to Nick to ask his advise on grading and so on ,his phone was constantly ringing like in the video ,but he kept hanging it up ,so he could give me his undivided attention, and I am sure those phone calls where more important to him than me at the time,  as I was not buying anything or selling anything just looking for expert advise ,a class act Nick was for sure, that video brings a tear to my eye......................

I too dealt with Nick, and he was a class act! He honored a promise he made 6 months after the fact! I wish to offer my most sincere condolences to his family. This hobby is better because of him.
