Joe Flynn started in the rare coin business in 1957. By 1960 he was one of the largest mail order dealers in the country. Being one of the first dealers offering truly rare coins by mail and publishing monthly catalogs.
Over the years he has purchased many seven figure collections and estates and at one time or the other has bought and sold virtually every coin issued by the US mint.
Joe was president of the prestigious international professional numismatic guild (PNG) from 1979 thru 1981 and served on its board of directors from 1971 to 1979. He has also received many customer service awards from the various numismatic publications for his outstanding service as a mail order dealer.
In 1993 Joe decided to retire and sold his rare coin business. In 1997 he decided to buy a small coin shop for something to do. Getting bored with that he decided to open a pawn shop. The pawn business had always intrigued him and he felt he could take the pawn business to new and better heights. So in 2002 Joe bought a building and opened Quality Pawn.
Joe decided he would have four stores under one roof. A pawn shop, his rare coin and bullion business, a gun store, and a jewelry store. His reasoning was that all these businesses compliment each other. And guess what??? They do!!!
