American Numismatic Association member Mack Martin received the Steven J. D'Ippolito Best-of-Show Exhibit award for his exhibit, "Georgia's Civil War Treasury History, 1861-1865" at the 2014 National Money ShowSM, February 27-March 1 in Atlanta.


The first runner-up Best-of-Show award was presented to Charmy Harker for "Penny Potpourri - A Collection of Penny Creations." Second runner-up was awarded to Dennis Schafluetzel for his exhibit "Wills Valley and Alabama & Chattanooga Railroad."


The Radford Stearns Memorial Award for People's Choice, determined by votes from convention attendees, was won by Charmy Harker for "Penny Potpourri - A Collection of Penny Creations."


This is one of several shows this year that "Penny Potpourri - A Collection of Penny Creations" has been on display. "This is my first exhibit I have ever prepared, and I'm shocked and pleased that it has been so well received by both the judges and the public and that everyone likes it," said Harker.

 The National Coin Week Award was also presented to Mack Martin for his exhibit "The Elongated Coin Man 'Ray Dillard.'" Martin will receive a full scholarship to the ANA Summer Seminar, an award endowed by John Albanese. 

"I never tried to win the National Coin Week Award," said Martin. "I got extremely lucky." 

National Coin Week exhibits are intended for display in libraries and schools and there is a $250 limit on the value of the materials in this competition. Second place was awarded to Thomas J. Uram for "National Coin Week April 20-26, 2014: Coin & Country, Celebrating Civic Service."

Level 7

I started following you. I think you are the best blog writer on this site. I have learned more from you than anyone else. Thank you for that. I red them because I have a traumatic brain injury. I started collecting coins because of it. The neurosurgeons Sid a hobby would help. One collected coins and recommend it. It has slowed down some of my cognitive functions but the numbers have been bad here in 2017. You wrote this in 2014. It's getting worse the memory but I fight it every day. I love the ANA and most of the people here. I had to tell you because I'm all over your blogs. Thanks for everything you have done. Mike
