    Sextus Pompey, 37/6 BC. Denarius, uncertain Sicilian mint. Ex Randy Haviland Collection. From CNG Auction 111 (2019), 626.

    Haviland, after enlisting in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Vietnam Era, was employed in the family business Haviland Corporation in Linn, Missouri, which specialized in cleaning products (floor and window squeegees). A Scout Master for a local troop, with the rank of Eagle Scout, he notably enjoyed scuba diving, fishing, and cave diving.

    Haviland came from a family of collectors, with a philatelist father, and his paternal grandmother gave him his first coins. Randy’s collecting spanned U.S. Coins, U.S. Paper Currency, Ancients, and finally settled on Roman Imperatorial Coins.
