DALLAS, Texas (February 18, 2021) – At Heritage Auctions, we pride ourselves on the auction successes and record-setting events in our more than 40 categories. Throughout all that success, one thing is most important: our Heritage family, including all of our employees world-wide and every family member of those employees.

For our Senior Numismatist and Cataloger, family means that it is time for a move. Mark Borckardt, his wife Mary, and their son, Mathew, will soon be relocating to a new home in close proximity to Heritage’s Chicago office. The move, planned for this summer, will bring the Borckardt family close to their daughter, son-in-law and grandson who live in the area.

“The move will allow my wife to be a full-time grandmother, while I am excited to bring my numismatic capabilities to Chicago,” Borckardt says. “I will divide my time between the Chicago and Dallas offices, and will be available to meet with clients for special projects at both locations.”

Borckardt, named the American Numismatic Association’s 2020 Numismatist of the Year, will spend time cataloging and researching U.S. numismatics, particularly concentrating on colonial and early Federal coinage, as he does now.

Additionally, he will continue to work as a consignment director in numismatics, and he will be available to support the Heritage Auctions’ staff in Chicago. Borckardt may be reached at 214-409-1345 or at
