NBS MEETING REPORT: FUN 2006

Fred Lake writes: "The Numismatic Bibliomania Society (NBS)
held a meeting at the annual Florida United Numismatists (FUN)
show in Orlando, Florida on Saturday, January 7, 2006. There
were 23 people who entered their names on the sign-up sheet
and there were several more who we missed. NBS President Pete
Smith welcomed all and talked about the advantages in becoming
a member of NBS. Fred Lake then introduced the featured
speaker, David Crenshaw. David is Director of Numismatic
Research for Whitman Products and the title of his presentation
was "What is black and white and read all over?" This was an
outstanding review of the history of the "Guide Book of United
States Coins (the Redbook)" and the colorful slides gave a
clear picture of the various stages of its development. The
editor of the "Redbook", Ken Bressett spent quite some time
fielding questions from the audience and had a wealth of
information to share.

A door prize of a 2006 special edition leather-bound
"Redbook" presented by David Crenshaw was won by Wanda Mize.

Those in attendance were: Pete Smith, Fred Lake, David
Crenshaw, Ken Bressett, Howard A. Daniel III, Bill Cowburn,
Jerry Kochndel, John Eshbach, Amanda Rondot, Walter Mize,
Wanda Mize, Tom Sebring, Bob Fritsch, Chuck Heck, Dennis
Schafluetzel, Dennis Tucker, Cliff Mishler, George Fitzgerald,
Martin Gengerke, Robert Kaufmann, Alan Workman, Nick Boccuzzi
and Alan Davisson."

[Great turnout! Fred took provided some photos of the event,
and thanks to our webmaster Bruce Perdue, these have been
posted to the NBS web site: FUN Photo's

I'm sorry I couldn't be there, but I'm glad so many members
and friends of NBS turned out for the meeting.  Thanks again
to David Crenshaw for sharing his presentation with us, and
thanks to Fred for both organizing the event and following
up with a great report.

Fred's already casting about for speakers for next year's
meeting.  If you'd like to make a presentation, or suggest
someone you'd like to hear, let us know.  -Editor]
