For those who did not know him, he went by AUHobby here on the forums.

    Last active on the forums 12 years ago, which is why it didn't ring a bell with me.

    But sorry to hear the news. He even included mention of his coin collecting hobby in his obituary, so he was certainly dedicated.

    I also don't remember him. Maybe it's because his total post count was 4. In any event, may he rest in peace. o:)

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.

    He was active with the Lincoln Cent complete variety registry, no, right Bob?

    I wasn't familiar with him, at all.

    Sounds like a great collector, though.

    ALWAYS sad to see someone leave the table.

    One of my ancestors was one of those good ol' fashioned traveling country doctors! He was pretty locally renowned too at the time!

    RIP Dr. Sparti. I didn't know him, but I am wishing all of his friends and family solace during this difficult time.

    I am a newer collector (started April 2020), and I primarily focus on U.S. Half Cents and Type Coins. Early copper is my favorite.

    I didn't know Dr. Sparti either, but he brought joy into a lot of lives both here and delivering babies.

    Dr. Sparti reminds me of the "Moonlight Graham" character in the movie "Field of Dreams". What influence he had on various lives by his existence. And what life would of been without his input. A quality individual indeed.
