To be grateful, to flow in such wavelegth, is to breath another air. Gratitude exerts a mandate from the soul which tells at the same time the heart to operate in harmony with the surroundings, with all.I am grateful for being recognized among many here. I enjoy what I do, the way I do it and the message that is conveyed thru this ANA website. A house for communicating ideas, new items and perhaps unify what at times seems impossible: people.I am grateful for the opportunity given to share knowledge, potential growth and history within ANA's public spaces. It is a great chance to put into light what we have and also to connect in many ways with others while, at the same time learn and discover many possibilities of learning. I have also discovered a path for myself.I am grateful for my perseverance amidst troubled times. After facing personal rough episodes and the ups and downs of life, this numismatics portal is a kind of havenfor me.At the end, I am grateful to know that my style of sharing my knowledge or information is well viewed, and enjoyed by many. I am among great collectors, historians and currency appraisers here, at this excellent place named American Numismatics Association.Thank you, ANA.AC Coin$Never give up.

I just found out from the powers that be at the ANA , there is a problem with putting pictures up on a new blog for everyone. Maybe that is why there haven't been any new blogs for a couple of days. I know it stops me. I feel a photo makes a good blog better. They are working on it. Lets hope it is fixed soon. Whatever "it" is. Thanks

Provenance and Pedigree

Exonumia | DrDarryl

Most collectors, numismatists and dealers interchange the terms provenance and pedigree. This should stop. POTUS Numismatic Artifacts treat these two terms with a precise difference when it comes to "Evidential Proof".

Exonumia | RyanK96

I posted something similar to this in the Facebook group some time back, but I'm genuinely curious if anyone here has a collection of numismatic autographs. Over the past few years I have written to several numismatic authors and notables.Harvey Stack
