I have fond memories of visiting my Great Uncle Jim as a child. He will be missed

I first knew Jim when my grandmother used to invite him for Sunday dinner. He was a bachelor, but then as now, was a perfect gentleman. He will certainly be missed by all who knew him. Gordon Dickie

I remember going to Jim's store on 80 Richmond Street in Toronto back as a teenager in 1962. I remember seeing a table full of large cents at 20c a piece.I purchased 10 examples. This started a coin collecting bug which is with me to this day! A True Numismatic Icon! God Bless You Jim!
