After studying at Clark University in Massachusetts and Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey, Frank joined the auction staff at New York-based Acker Merrall & Condit in 1998. In 2003 he joined Bonhams & Butterfield as Director of Fine & Rare Wines, becoming International Director in November of 2006 and taking on a revised role focused on making the Wine department there a global entity, paying particular attention to markets in the US and Hong Kong, where, in April of 2008, he held the first wine sale in more than 17 years. Over the course of the following year and a half Frank was in Hong Kong on a monthly basis, working not only on wine auction, but also spending a good deal of time working with the government in Hong Kong to develop appropriate policy around the business. His experience in the industry is across all phases of the business, from business development, to marketing, to sales, consignments and customer service, with a decidedly hands on approach. As early as 2000, Who What Where magazine published a feature story spotlighting Frank, his rise in the world of fine wines and his success orchestrating auctions. It said, in part: "Martell has rapidly established himself as a superstar in the world of wine... his future seems extremely bright." He has since been featured on CBS News, MSNBC, CNN, and CNBC's "Squawk Box" as an expert in the field and was cast in a primary role in John Cleese's documentary, "Wine for the confused."

David S. Michaels has been active in the field of classical numismatics for more than 24 years.  A specialist in Roman Imperial coinage, he has an extensive background in Greek, Byzantine, Dark Age, and Medieval coins as well. He is also well known as an author and lecturer. Michaels was born in Los Angeles, California in 1957. An early viewing of the movie “Cleopatra” when he was seven years old kindled a lifelong fascination with the ancient world.  While touring Italy in the mid 1980s, he purchased a battered Roman bronze coin, launching a new hobby and career path.  An interview with the renowned numismatist and author David R. Sear in 1988 convinced him that ancient coins could be more than a sideline. Two years later, he made numismatics his full time vocation. Michaels’ profile in the world of ancient coins rose steadily. In 1998, he became sales director of Classical Numismatic Group. Two years later, he joined Freeman & Sear, where he remained until 2010. Michaels has published several articles on aspects of ancient coinage and has given talks on the subject across the country.

Harry Metrano is the Director of Numismatics at Heritage’s Beverly Hills office. A native of the Los Angeles area, he started early on collecting sports cards, but after attending his first Long Beach Coin Show at the age of 10, his passion for sports cards quickly changed to a love for numismatics that has grown for more than 20 years. Harry soon began to realize that his passion could be turned into a career and continued his rare coin journey, working for dealers throughout high school and college. While attending college classes at night, he would work in the mornings buying and selling coins before earning his degree in Finance from Florida Atlantic University. In his role at Heritage, Harry divides his time between multiple duties that include estate appraisals, wholesale and retail sales, buying collections over email and phone, auction consignments and work at all the major coin shows around the country. He currently collects Peace Dollars and is a member of the American Numismatic Association (ANA) and Florida United Numismatist (FUN).

Matt has been a collector for essentially his entire life, from rocks and sports cards as an adolescent to coins which would blossom into a career during his teenage years.  Always having “business” as a focus as well, Matt quickly learned that many areas of introductory collectibles didn’t hold their value well and that if he was going to put his money into something, his hope was to get most or more of it out when the time to sell came.  This revelation coincided with the early days of Ebay, and soon, Matt found that he could make a little extra money in the hobby. 

Matt went to Trinity University in San Antonio for college and during the summer of 2003, decided to contact Heritage to see if employment opportunities existed – they did, and he wound end up working with the U.S. cataloging staff until graduation.  In 2005, Matt graduated with a BS in Finance and Marketing and immediately joined Heritage as a Consignment Director, a position he held for two years.

After two years with Heritage, Matt decided it was time to explore other industries and see what his degree could offer him.  For one year, Matt worked at New York Life Insurance Company in their Variable Products division.  Towards the end of that year, Matt was again lured back into the auction industry.  He joined Spink Smythe, a U.S.-based division of the London firm, as Vice President of Auctions where he coordinated auction sales for nearly 5 years.  It is during this period that Matt refined and broadened his expertise into the field of World numismatics.

Matt chose to re-join Heritage in their World Coin department as a Consignment Director in February of 2013. Playing off his prior experiences, Matt’s roles currently include cataloging for auctions, preparing marketing materials, and of course, using his broad base of numismatic knowledge to help people sell at auction.

While Matt does maintain and occasionally add to his coin collection, he currently finds himself pursuing numismatic medals more than anything else.  His collection of George Washington medals has been a long-time passion, and within his 1800-1830s focus, is fairly well-accomplished.  Additionally, Matt collects medals of Mexico made during the reigns of Carlos III (1759-1788) and Carlos IV (1788-1808).
