Uncirculated Eisenhower Silver Dollar
(1972-S- 40% Silver)
Victor arrived with his young family in the United States a few months after President Kennedy’s murder. The tragic occurrence saddened Victor who had envisioned the United States …“America” as he called it … to be a land safe from the ugly realities he had experienced under fascism and communism.
But what happened in Dallas on that noon hour of 22 November 1963 ruptured his idealistic hopes. He settled his family in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and he soon began trading Polish and Italian stamps for United States stamps and coins, seeking to bring his collections "up to date" in his new homeland.
Many of the pre-1960’s stamps and coins being listed on our family store were obtained by Victor at stamp meetings and swap fairs in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, about 1964 and later. More about Victor and about his collections can be read in our book “Arrivederci Leopolis. The Lion’s War” and its adapted screenplay "The War of Lions".
