Weldon D. "Burt" Burson (2014)

The very epitome of a world banknote collecting legend, Weldon did what no one else was capable of doing by physically handling, conserving and bringing order to the most challenging monetary union in the world, West African States.

Then he spent decades generously sharing his research efforts and vast knowledge with fellow collectors and dealers.

A former US Foreign Service diplomat, Burt is an incomparable researcher, author, collector, mentor and colleague.
