.......FEBRUARY MEETING HIGHLIGHTS……

  • There were 35 members present at the February meeting which was brought to order by president, Peter Jones. There were four dealer tables selling coins, etc. The secretary's report was accepted as promulgated in the last meeting notice. The treasurer's report was accepted. The balance of funds in the checking account was stated to be $10,965.90. Gene Kessler won the membership prize and Bill Jacobik, the 50/50 prize.

    ……Previously, this club voted to set aside money that would help a Young Numismatist financially attend an educational forum on numismatics. The ANA Sumer Seminar was the forum intended. If we do not have a qualified person here, perhaps NENA could suggest one from outside this club. Donat Charron will explore this in more detail with representatives of NENA and we will go from there. Subsequently, John Ferreri suggested that those funds could, at less expense and confusion, fund someone to attend the NENA Conference in Manchester, NH in the fall and participate in the YN program there where the dollar will go a much longer way. We will decide tonight which direction we want to go. (See the attachment for a little more on this subject.)



    ……THE PROGRAM…President Peter gave the program on Medieval Coins emphasizing & interpreting the metal contents, legends and portraits. Thank-you, Peter!

    ……EXHIBITS……… John L.. exhibited and spoke about a National Bank note from Spring Valley, NY. Ed B. showed items from 1929 that would complement coins of that date. Franz showed gaming tokens. Matt P. showed slides and the coin, a counterfeit silver Maple Leaf Coin of Canada.  

     

    SHOW AND TELL 

    Greg P. showed a very rare 1989 double die cent (front and back.) Dave O. showed a Connecticut Civil War era Conn. Heavy Artillery Medal. Bill K. showed a Patriotic Order Sons of America Medal. Franz showed some Giori Test notes and Peter showed a book and pamphlet about Medieval Coins.  


    THIS MONTH'S PROGRAM

    Guest speaker, Rob Galiette of Essex will give a program on collecting and writing a book about Collecting Liberty $20 Gold Coins


    Looking ahead………… approval of anything different than the $150 yearly donation to the Library will be needed. Otherwise, we will set that aside for disbursement at the end of the season. And there is a good possibility of not having a newsletter for the month of April (the last meeting of the season) as I probably won't be able to get it out on time, we'll see! There will definitely be a meeting!
