In this day and age there are many more storage options and albums that safeguard your coins from this avoidable mess.

JCNS April Meeting Program

This month, Dave Baldwin will talk to us about the fascinating topic of collecting tokens and medals. If you are like me you probably just put any tokens and medals you find into an odds and ends jar full of mysterious objects that don't seem to fit in any of your albums. Dave will enlighten us and be available if you have any tokens or medals that you would like him to take a look at. Maybe you have some treasures you were not even aware of.

If Duane Davidson is at the April meeting ask him to show you pictures of his latest Civil War era find. He was metal detecting in a yard very close to the Lenexa Community Center when his machine started to beep, beep, beep.

CCNS 6th Annual Coin ShowThe Cass County Numismatic Society is sponsoring their 6th Annual Spring Coin Show on Saturday April 24th at the Mill-Walk Mall in Harrisonville, MO. The mall is located just west of Highway 71 at the Missouri 291 exit. If you are out for a nice spring drive just stop on by.

CSNS – Fall Numismatic SeminarThe Central States Numismatic Society and the Hutchinson, Kansas Coin Club will conduct a Fall Numismatic Seminar on Saturday, October 2, 2010 in the Hutchinson First National Bank. Speakers will include former ANA President Bob Campbell, current ANA President Cliff Mishler, and current ANA Governor Wendell Wolka. The topics will be announced at a later date. Registration is $10 for CSNS members and $20 for non-members of which $10 can be applied towards a one-year CSNS membership. Registration includes a continental breakfast and light lunch. The seminar will begin at 8 am and conclude at 4 pm. For more information, contact Francis Hawks by e-mail ([email protected]) or by telephone at (620) 663-1474.

My Latest Find

I got this nice note from a friend of mine who wanted to sell his collection. Pretty low serial number and still crisp even though it has a center fold. This 1929 National Bank Note really had Steve Carr drooling. He didn't have an NBN from this bank in his collection. Since his devotion to KANSAS NBNs is so much stronger than mine I sold it to him.

ANA Summer Seminar ScholarshipsThe Board will be voting on the lucky recipients that will attend the ANA summer seminar at the April meeting. The ANA puts on a number of top-notch educational seminars over the course of a week. Plenty of other activities are also available to make the whole experience enjoyable. If you want to go at the end of June or early July, make sure you get a written request to a Board member prior to the meeting so you can be considered.

Another eBay WarningI often use eBay's automated search process to email me when a coin I'm interested in gets listed. This past week I received notice that one of my favorite coins, a 1732 Pillar Dollar, had been listed. This is the first year of minting for the Pillar Dollar series at the Mexico City mint. It is quite rare. Take a look at the photos below. My original sea salvaged 1732 is on the left, the eBay seller from Israel's coin is on the right. The denticles are wrong, the font for the date is wrong, the flower symbols on either side of the date are wrong, the crown is horrible...need I say more.

Mine His

The Last WordDon’t forget about the upcoming America the Beautiful Quarter Launch to be held down in Arkansas at Hot Springs National Park. The event will take place on Tuesday, April 20th at 10 am and will include a coin exchange where the public can obtain rolls of the newly minted quarters at face value. These are always a lot of fun to attend, and I would encourage you to take that opportunity if you have a chance. The next closest launch event this year may be when the Lincoln Presidential Dollar is unveiled this fall. That venue may likely be in Springfield, IL although no firm plans have been announced yet. Stay tuned to your favorite coin collecting publication for more details.
