NUMISMATIC CONVERSATIONS: TREASURES IN THE ANS ARCHIVES

According to a September 20 press release, the next ANS
"Numismatic Conversation" on October 18 will spotlight the
extensive ANS archives.  This is a topic sure to be of
particular interest numismatic bibliophiles and researchers.

"The American Numismatic Society's archivist Joe Ciccone will
present "Treasures in the ANS Archives." This program will relate
intriguing stories of the early history of coin collecting and
scholarship, illustrated with rare letters, photographs, reports,
meeting minutes, and research notes from the Society's archives--
a collection of manuscripts and other materials that document the
history of the organization and the field of numismatics as far
back as the 1850's.

This presentation, the third in the series of programs titled
"Numismatic Conversations," will be held on Wednesday, October 18,
2006 at 6:00 PM at the ANS headquarters, 95 Fulton Street in New
York City, for a live audience as well as participants from
around the country who will view the program on the internet.

The ANS Archives was formally established in 2004 to preserve
the institutional records of the Society, as well as the personal
papers of former staff, such as Edward T. Newell, Howland Wood,
Agnes Baldwin Brett and Sydney P. Noe who were pioneers in the
professionalization of numismatics in the early 20th century.
Ciccone also will discuss the process the ANS undertook to set up
the archives and use selections from the archives to demonstrate
the uniqueness and depth of the collection."

"There is no charge to attend, but seating in the live audience
is limited to thirty individuals and reservations are encouraged.
To make reservations, or for information on how you can connect
and view the webcast, please contact Juliette Pelletier at 212
571-4470, extension 1311."
