Senior Specialist


Nick Coombs is the senior specialist in the Numismatics Department at Hindman.

Prior to joining Hindman in 2014, Mr. Coombs worked for PCGS Currency in Peoria, Illinois, where he was responsible for the grading and authentication of paper money. This enabled him to travel to dozens of coin and currency shows a year and develop a lifelong passion for numismatics. In addition to heading the Numismatics Department at Hindman, Mr. Coombs works closely with the Fine Furniture, Decorative Arts, and Silver Department and has directed auctions for philatelics, memorabilia, scientific instruments, and fountain pens. He received a BA in art history from the University of Wisconsin–Madison and a master of letters in art and art world practice from the University of Glasgow.
