WESTCHESTER COUNTY COIN CLUB MEMORIES

Rick Witschonke writes: "The item on the Westchester County Coin Club
brought back fond memories.  In the early 60s, I became interested in
coins, and the fellow who was the counselor for the Boy Scout coin
collecting merit badge was a member of the club.  He started taking
me to the meetings, which opened a whole new world for a 15 year old.

The club met at the New Rochelle YMCA, and the cigar smoke was so thick
you couldn't see across the room.  I remember in particular Ernest
Wiedhaus, who looked like he had stepped out of the 19th century, and
Ed Janis, with his wonderful large cents.  Everyone was very kind and
helpful."
