Well it took till May but my still active sets are now up to date. I completed the deluxe Kennedy set with the P&D rolls.the silver proofs of course with the proof sets. And the S mints. It does take time but when you look at the set that's up to date there is a feeling of accomplishment. I have older sets thank the Lord there not making a lot of coins anymore. Now some of you will say what's the big deal. Well I as a collector enjoy it. There not the only coins I collect by far. Some of you I have told you part of my collection. It's just to long. After twenty five years you tend to accumulate a lot of coins. I still like the up to date sets. Like nickels dimes Penny's half dollars all are current coinage. Some of the coins I don't collect in DANSCO albums. Like the America the Beautiful quarters. There all graded. All the same grade and all ultra cameo and of course silver. Now I can pull out any sets I want on a bad day and put a smile on my face. Some will say but there not investment coins. So what I like them. And that's all that counts. Take care. Mike
It was two years ago that I attended my first ever ANA Summer Seminar. I am so excited about being able to return in 2016. I called in the Fall of 2015 and spoke to Amber B. She was kind enough to keep me informed, so that I could sign up as soon as was possible.The first time I attended, I was part of the Second Session. I was unable to attend the First Session that year, because I was running the Kansas Numismatic Association's Annual Coin & Stamp Show in Wichita, KS. I was a regular board member of the KNA, then. The following year, I was doing the same, but due to my health I was unable to attend the Summer Session in 2015. I am still a KNA Board Member, but this is my last term as Vice President. This year is also my last year running the Kansas Numismatic Association's Annual Coin & Stamp Show, so I will only be attending the Second Session this year. I look forward to meeting new people who share the same interests. I am planning on driving all the way from Wichita, KS to Colorado Springs, CO. It's about an 8 hour drive, so I am driving in a day early on Friday, June 24th. This can help me acclimate to the altitude. I am a life long Kansan, which means that I'm a "flat lander". Look forward to seeing everyone again!
