John Sandrock (2015)

John Sandrock (Charter Member 0026) from the United States of America was a pioneer in the hobby of paper money collecting and his devotion was stellar.

A lifelong researcher and founder of arguably the first paper money club, The Maryland Foreign Paper Money Club, which evolved into the World Paper Money Club. Their quarterly journal, The Currency Collector, was the first publication in the United States to bring together collectors with an interest in foreign paper money. His interest in numismatics began during military service with the US Navy in China in 1946. John always believed that research was the basis of a true interest in numismatics and he readily shared that research with others. Over the years, books, monographs, his own website and articles (some 15 for the IBNS Journal over a period of 24 years ending as recently as 2012, the year of his death), are ample testimony to the huge contribution he made to the betterment of the hobby and the IBNS.
