i am awesome and new. hi
I recently attended the ANA’s Summer Seminar for the second time, taking Intermediate Coin Grading (grading 2) this time. I brought along my trusty iPad, and because I type at a nearly inhuman speed I took some pretty extensive notes that I thought I might share in the hopes of helping others. This class was taught by two current coin graders, one employed by PCGS and the other NGC — you just can’t ask for better instructors. Steven Feltner (PCGS guy) and John Schuch II (NGC guy) were great, and I wrote down nearly everything they said whether it was new to me or not.
The ANA’s annual Summer Seminar is a fantastic week long event dedicated solely to educating numismatists of all ages and all skill levels. Their course catalog is comprehensive, covering a vast area of numismatics, and the chance to meet and rub elbows with some of the best in the business is worth the trip alone. This year marked my second journey to Colorado Springs, Colorado for the Summer Seminar and this week was by far my favorite yet! I can tell you now I’ll be back each year for the foreseeable future.
By now the entire numismatic world has heard of The Kennedy Madness that gripped thousands of people at the ANA’s World’s Fair Of Money, 2014.
Have any of you received your 2014 Kennedy 50th Anniversary Mint Special Issue from the Mint?I just got my order of 5 sets (limited per household) and was quite pleased with the strike and overall packaging design. We can only speculate if the market will command a premium for these sets in time. I'm going to hold on to two sets, and plan on listing the other three online :)
Hi to Every one,
No, this is not going to be a piece about an airline.
