J.H. Cline, of Palm Harbor, Fla., died Jan. 8, 2015, from injuries
suffered in an accident.
He was owner of J.H. Cline Rare Coins. Mr. Cline specialized in
Standing Liberty quarter dollars for more than 40 years.
Mr. Cline began his full-time career in numismatics in 1964. He
spent 31 years operating his own coin shop, Cline’s Rare Coins on
Salem Avenue in Dayton, Ohio, before moving to Palm Harbor.
Mr. Cline was a life member of the American Numismatic Association.
He was also a member of the Indiana State Numismatic Association,
National Silver Dollar Roundtable, Florida United Numismatists,
Central States Numismatic Society, and other coin clubs.
In 1975 he published Standing Liberty Quarters. The fourth
edition of the book was published in 2007.
Mr. Cline “began collecting coins in high school with a few Indian
Head cents. His first Standing Liberty Quarter was a severely cleaned
1918-S from a friend who asked the great sum of 35¢ for the coin. He
bought that piece in the early 1950’s,” his website states.
Mr. Cline is survived by his wife, Vicki, two daughters, and three sons.
Mrs. Cline told Coin World that per her husband’s
instructions, “a private memorial service may be held at a later date.”
