ANA CONVENTION NOTES
Your Editor had a great time at the recent ANA convention.
It was nice to see so many of our subscribers and put some
faces to the names. The NBS general meeting was well
attended and very enjoyable.
A Friday afternoon visit to the American Numismatic
Society library was a short but interesting diversion. I had
no agenda in mind and simply browsed through the pamphlet
files for amusement, making copies of a handful of items for
my own files, including:
A 1953 newsletter about Encased Postage Stamp literature
published by F. H. Ames, Jr. of Richland, Washington.
A September 1869 offprint from a Banker's Magazine by
William E. DuBois on "Propositions for a Revised System of
Weights and a Restoration of Silver Currency."
A June 1952 article by E. R. H. Dicken on "Scottish Beggar's
A May 1961 Coin World interview with John J. Ford on the
menace of numismatic counterfeits made by the spark erosion
An 1893 "Memoir of Jeremiah Colburn, A.M." by John
Ward Dean AM.
