Tom's first advertisement for selling collectible currency appeared in Canadian Coin News in 1959 when he was only 14. At that time, he had already been a collector for 8 years! In 1973, he started Denly’s of Boston while working in the family travel business. Since that very first year, his name has grown into the business which is known and respected worldwide.
Tom has been a contributor to over 20 currency collecting publications and is now Pricing Editor for Whitman Publishing’s currency publications. His most recent projects include the pricing for the following publications by Q. David Bowers: The Whitman Encyclopedia of Paper Money, The Hundred Greatest American Currency Notes and The Official Red Book Guide of United States Paper Money. He has also given presentations at the Central States and ANA Conventions and has received numerous awards from the Society of Paper Money.
Tom is a 24 year member of the Professional Numismatic Guild (and presently serves as Treasurer), Life Member #1 of the Society of Paper Money Collectors, a life member of the American Numismatic Association, and charter member and past president of the Professional Currency Dealers Association.
Tom is married with two children. His wife Anita is retired. She has recently received her Master’s Degree in Gastronomy and still continues to study. His daughter Carla, 35, is an independent documentary film producer on the west coast. She has won a number of awards and has produced many segments for PBS's Nova Science Now. Tom's son Michael, 26, is pursuing a career in international diplomacy and is fluent in five languages.
Tom, when he takes a break from his work and family, loves to fish. Many of his ads and his website incorporate his passion for currency collecting and fishing.
Tom is a true collector's dealer and his first priority in business is maintaining a friendly, educational, personal atmosphere.
Jennifer was hired over thirteen years ago in an administrative capacity. After a short period of time, she found herself sharing the collector’s fascination and enthusiasm for collecting U.S. banknotes. So, under the tutelage of Tom Denly, she learned how to grade and evaluate notes along with her current responsibilities. She is now one of the first female members of the Professional Currency Dealers Association and is well respected in the industry.
Jennifer has been an integral part in bringing Denly's into the 21st Century. She played a major role in developing our inventory control system, our invoicing and bookkeeping system and was instrumental in the creation of this website. She manages the website and is also continuously creating, developing and implementing new ways to improve the business.
Jennifer is an avid boxing fan and has been boxing herself for the past two years. She enjoys active-travel and being outdoors.
Martha was hired here over nine years ago when it was determined that a third full-time employee was necessary. Shortly after her arrival, Denly's made a move to increase the volume of currency sold on eBay and Martha managed this part of the business. Along with her eBay responsibilities, she is the key person who ensures the scanning is up-to-date on our website and she plays a major role in the sales and customer service end of the business.
In Martha's off time she enjoys boating and fishing with her husband. She has caught a 40 pound striped bass and 120 pound sailfish in the past year. A very notable achievement.
