Milton Edelman, 92, of Abington, a coin and stamp dealer, died of cardiogenic shock Wednesday at Abington Memorial Hospital.
Born in Weston, W. Va., he graduated from Germantown High School in 1933 and joined Edelman's Loan Office, a business on Lancaster Avenue near 42d Street opened by his father in 1926.
After closing that firm in 1967, Mr. Edelman opened Edelman's Coins & Stamps at York Road and Greenwood Avenue in Jenkintown.
His son, Jon, president of the firm since the late 1980s, said his father "worked here up until this winter, still coming in two or three half-days a week to help out."
In the 1950s, Mr. Edelman was an exhibit judge at annual shows of the American Philatelic Society, his son said, and in the 1970s was president of the former Jenkintown Business Association.
In 1946, he was master of the Hackenburg-Mount Moriah Masonic Lodge and, his son said, at various times was president of the Ashbourne Civic Association, Covenant Lodge of B'nai B'rith, and the Philadelphia Stamp Club.
Most recently, he headed the Oak Lane Shakespeare Society.
Besides his son, Mr. Edelman is survived by a daughter, Rabbi Sue Levy; five grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
