Sabel Rarities was established in 2012 by Bonnie Sabel, Numismatist.

In 1997, Bonnie's career in Numismatics began when she was hired as the Bookkeeper for Pinnacle Rarities, Houston. Very shortly thereafter she realized a passion for coins and collectors and the rare coin business.

After a decade of working with U.S. Coins and Albanese Rare Coins, she branched out and Sabel Rarities was actualized.

Best known for her love of beautifully toned type and magnificent Early Commemoratives, she has helped assemble numerous top NGC and PCGS registry sets and has placed rarities in most all areas of U.S. coinage.

Attention is especially given to locating coins that are exceptional...either in terms of color, eye-appeal or technical merit. Working with clients to determine pricing on coins that do not follow "sheets" is a talent and responsibility taken very seriously.

Consulting with collectors regarding third party grading and certifications has become a particularly important part of what we do to benefit collectors. When the time comes to sell duplicates or place your treasures with another collector, we will assist you in realizing maximum value for all your efforts.
