It has been a rough few years, so it is good to highlight a good story.
A news story from KXAS, the NBC-owned station in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, reported that a coin dealer opened a new storefront three years after being robbed.
According to the report, Christian Lyche was robbed of 75-percent of his inventory in April 2019. Although the police caught the robber, Lyche did not recover any merchandise or compensation.
Lyche said that the numismatic community helped him set up online, and he was back in business. After rebuilding his business, Lyche opened Dallas Gold and Gun last weekend. He reported having a good opening weekend.
Congratulations to Christian Lyche for recovering, following your dreams, and maintaining a positive presence in the hobby.
