He says that this class is a “hands on, fun interaction between people who love to teach about coins and learn about them.”
ANA members, don't wait until you get to Colorado Springs to use the Dwight N. Manley Numismatic Library. Remember, members can view the library's online card catalog and check books out through the mail. The only cost to you is the price of shipping to and from the library.
The ANA has arranged some great excursions for spouses and other family members who aren't enrolled at Summer Seminar to enjoy while their favorite numismatist is in class.
Two of the foremost experts in U.S. gold coins and territorial gold, David McCarthy and Doug Winter, will offer special insight into the recent Saddle Ridge Hoard discovery as part of their Session 2 class, United States and Territorial Gold Coinage (1795-1933).
