QUIZ ANSWER: THE ORIGINAL ANA HEADQUARTERS BUILDING DESIGN

The answer to last week's quiz question comes from Ed Rochette's
article in the November 21 issue of Numismatic News (page 38):

"Quite fortunately, the original plans for the design of the ANA
headquarters building had been scrapped in the name of good taste!
The original architectural renderings proposed a round building
with concrete reeded edges circumscribing the building, as if it
were a giant coin laying flat."

"By the way, if you want to see a round building that was designed
to look like a stack of coins, visit Iola, Wis., where Numismatic
News is located.  It was built as a restaurant in 1980 by Cliff
Mishler and is currently a Subway, where hungry staff can still
get something to eat."
