PAN SHOW EDUCATIONAL EXHIBITS AND TALKS

This weekend's Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists (PAN) coin
show had 41 cases of top-notch educational exhibits, including a
number by E-Sylum subscribers.  Several knowledgeable visitors
commented on the high quality and variety of exhibits by adults
and young numismatists alike.  My personal favorite was "Roman Coin
Reverse Designs" by Paul Schultz.  Sam Deep won the People's Choice
award for "101 Ways to Collect Coins".   Other topics included "Fun
With State Quarters" and "U.S. History on State Quarters", "German
Reform Out of the Ashes" (on paper money), "A Carson City Type Set",
"Gold Coins of the Charlotte Mint", "My Favorite Coins", "Our Most
Beautiful Coins", "A Special Roosevelt Inaugural Medal", and "The
Holland Society of New York".

I was unable to attend all of the meetings and presentations, but
Ed Krivoniak did a great job explaining proper coin storage to about
100 kids and parents at the at the Saturday Coins4Kids meeting.  At
the same meeting Tom Sebring spoke on Pirates and shipwreck coins,
and he spoke again at the banquet Saturday evening (on his experiences
as a collector).  Tom's two exhibits at the show were "Shipwreck
Coins and the Sea" and "The 124 Patriots of Ireland Medal".

The recent lifting of the Pennsylvania sales tax on coins contributed
to a large dealer turnout - the show was sold out.  The public also
came out in force, with a crowd of 150 gathered for the opening at
10am Friday. Congratulations to PAN for a great show and continued
emphasis on numismatic education.
