FEATURED WEB SITE  

   Today's featured web site is the Chicago Coin Club 
   (http://www.ece.iit.edu/~prh/coins/ccc.html), since the 
   featured speaker at tonight's meeting is one of our own 
   NBS Board members.   From the CCC web site:  

   "Featured Speaker: Dr. Joel J. Orosz on Early U.S. Coin  
   Collectors (Pre-1840's) One of the earliest numismatic  
   sales in the U.S. was held November 1, 1858. More than one  
   book refers to this date as the beginning of our hobby in this  
   country. They do not know that numismatists had already been  
   active for more than a century. Dr. Orosz has researched these  
   early collectors through historical periodicals and journals  
   and has uncovered many fascinating stories of people like Rev.  
   Andrew Eliot, Boston; Pierre Eugene Du Simitiere, Philadelphia;  
   Rev. John Christopher, New York City; and Robert Gilmor, Jr.,  
   Baltimore. His well-written papers on this subject have received 
   numerous awards due in large part to his ability to extract  
   relevant information that is pertinent to today's coin collectors."
