Owner of Crawford Coin & Stamps on Columbia St. in New Westmister BC Canada from 1960-99. Reginald was one of those coin dealers who took time to help out the kids who swarmed into his shop on weekends buying a handfull of old foriegn coins for Fifty cents or in my case my bi-weekly Ancient Roman coin for the outrageous price of $1.00-1.50 ^_^
He even took time to wright down the Emperors name and short history of each of them.
He was kind to the younger collectors because as he once told me while I was in my teens "The yonger ones in time become older collectors with bigger pocketbooks" so to say. ^_^
Regg as I used to call him passed away in 1999 of a heart condition at the age of 66 and he's still missed by us "older/younger" collectors for his kindness in our youth. His store still carries on with his name and a new owner who tries to keep up with the Crawford legend so to say. ^_^
(Yes Jeff its you I'm talking about....Keep up the good work.)
We miss you Regg.
