Milt Blackburn (2015)

Milt Blackburn (Life Member 18) from British Columbia, Canada is best described as a true “gentleman” and has been a highly respected banknote dealer for over 30 years.

He is best known for his integrity, closely followed by his deep well of banknote knowledge, particularly regarding British Commonwealth issues. One of the early driving forces of the IBNS, Milt Blackburn has volunteered thousands of hours of his time for the benefit of the IBNS, including the Board, the Awards Committee and as a founding member of the Vancouver Chapter, where he continues in a leadership role. Milt has always been willing to share information with everyone and most impressively no negative comments or disparaging words can be recalled by those who know him. He is admired for his strict grading standards from a time when third party grading was unknown.
