Justice: VDB Coins – Interfanatic Customer Spotlight

Justice is critical to successful society. Without true justice, fairness in life, in civility, and in business cannot exist. Justice is so important to our way of doing business it’s one of the primary symbols in our logo! We always treat our customers fairly, and we always regard our customers who treat their customers fairly. Customers like George Huber of VDB Coins.

George has been our client for a few years now. He came to us a bit ago after he was referred by another of our happy clients. His site was sorely out-of-date, and it needed a refresh. So we gave him one! Check out the short video below to see the facelift we gave his site.

And George Huber is many things good, but one of them is he’s quite interested in chess. Which leads brought us to this quote from almost 100 years ago. In chess, sun shines justice. George’s business has shined justice upon him, too.

VDB Coins: Because life is too short to buy ugly coins.

Well, it is! If you’re going to buy coins for your collection, you want the nicest you can get, and you want the most beautiful coins. Ugly coins do not appreciate nearly as much as beautiful ones. Probably because more people appreciate beautiful coins more than ugly ones.

George is an avid numismatist. When you go on his site, you’ll find that most of the stuff everyone really wants isn’t for sale – because it belongs to George! He only buys coins he would want in his collection. The result is his site has some really nice coins.

George is big into attractively toned coins – and with good reason. If you ever want to have a drool over lovely coins, I recommend popping by George’s site. And his coins really are that good. They don’t just photograph well, the are really nice in-hand.

And, despite the misleading moniker, George carries more than VD Brenner Lincolns! He has all sorts of goodies on his site. Of course, he always seems to have a very nice 1909 VDB Lincoln Wheat, and of course he regularly has lovely 1909-S VDB Lincoln Cents, but he has more than that, too. He’s got something for everyone – coins for collectors with all kinds of budgets. So check out his site! It’s nice. Of course, since we made it for him, I’m rather partial…

Justice: An Interfanatic Quality

On the chessboard of the masters, lies and hypocrisy do not prevail for long. Finally they will be hit by the thunderbolt of a creative combination, a fact they cannot obscure, at least not for a long period – as the sun of justice shines brightly in the battles of chessmasters.

The same is true in business. You can be a poor businessperson, you can treat your customers poorly, or give them poor service or product… But not for long. In the age of Yelp, the sun of justice shines brightly in the battles of business.

Which is why George Huber is successful. He does things his way, the right way. Huber doesn’t mess around. He sells nice coins for a fair price and the result is a grand collection of his and grand coins in the collections of his customers.

We strive for the same. We try very hard to treat our customers fairly – perhaps more than fairly. So far, the sun of justice is with us. We’ll keep working hard to make sure that remains true.

Diligence: VDB Coins – Interfanatic Customer Spotlight

…all things are accomplished by diligence and labor.


As things are in 2021, they were 2350 years ago, when Menandros wrote great thoughts: they present themselves in drama. Menander was a playwright, a poet, and a comedian in Greece almost 400 years before the death of Christ. We see aphorisms and axioms presented in our modern drama, be it Bridgerton or The Right Stuff or The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel today, all reflecting aspects of the ancient human struggle.

Our problems are not new. Though this quote might be used by the Communist Xi to inspire his people to labor, we can also use it to reinforce our own work ethic.

Menander’s full quote is (undoubtedly a poor translation of the original Greek, but there we are), “He who labors diligently need never despair, for all things are accomplished by diligence and labor.”

I write now as this week I have labored diligently, to bring equity to my being. I have been afforded so much and must afford more, so I must labor diligently to pay for my space. To make a difference.

As it is with all of us: the human condition. And nobody understands that better than George Huber of VDB Coins. In the face of an ever-changing market, George labors diligently with his love of numismatics. He takes my recommendations and writes regularly on his website. The result is better positioning within the search engines.

As he labors diligently, we labor diligently for him.

Diligence: An Interfanatic Quality

It’s easy to work diligently when your customers are happy. It’s easy to work diligently when your customers appreciate your effort.

When things are not going well, we must dig down and keep working diligently until things are well again. When things are not going well, the motivation is to make them well. But when all is well, it’s important to keep on top of it – to keep things there, and going better.

George Huber of VDB Coins is Diligent

Selling coins is not always sexy. There’s a lot of cataloging, a lot of careful inspection, a great deal of labor that goes into a successful coin business. And, of course it can be dangerous. There are many fraudsters lurking, and storing inventory is itself a serious security issue.

To succeed, you must be diligent. And George is that. Especially in this age when everyone is vying for the attentions of the Internet, one must be diligent in their efforts.

We recommend writing and posting regularly to your site. Providing the search engines with regular, fresh, key-word rich, and most importantly valuable content is one way to get noticed and climb the ranks. Your content must be good – not spammy. You must provide information to your customers that they find valuable. But most important, you must be diligent about it. Don’t put it off – do it, and the results will come.

“The search engines reward George’s diligence, and we reward his diligence with our own.”

When George came to us a couple of years ago looking for a site redesign, we emphasized the importance of regular content updates. George loves his online coin shop, and he remains diligent in updating its content. The result is that he has increased his search position since the redesigned site launched in a couple of critical areas.

The search engines reward George’s diligence, and we reward his diligence with our own. The result is a solid website its business owner enjoys.

I took this from a friend’s apartment, high within the Long Beach city skyline. On the left, the cranes of the Port of Los Angeles silhouetted against the Palos Verdes Peninsula, then the Wells Fargo building. As the sun sets on another day in the city, I’m thoughtful. I think about the people who show up and work diligently every day to make that town – and every town – go around. We live in a beautiful place. I’m blessed.
