A CATALOG OF NEW ENGLAND NUMISMATIC ASSOCIATION MEDALS

In response to Dick Johnson’s inquiry, Eric von Klinger
writes: "Coin World has the "Catalogue of NENA Medals" by
Thomas B. Ross in its library. The book was published on
behalf of the New England Numismatic Association by Ross,
at Enfield, Conn., copyright 1972."  Joe Levine also came
forth with a citation.

Clifford Mishler writes: "Thomas B. Ross’ plastic comb
bound “A Catalog of NENA Medals” carries a 1972 copyright,
with the “Foreward . . .” dated October 1, 1972, in Enfield,
Conn. My copy is of the “First Printing / October, 1972.”

"That small volume was succeeded 18 years later by an
October, 1990, dated loose-leaf bound compilation titled
“N.E.N.A. Conference & Convention Medals including
Transportation Tokens & Related Exonumia: authored by
Robert R. Heath, which includes a “Foreword” by James
Ford Clapp, Jr. I have a presentation that was loose-leaf
updated through 1994, with a “1994 Edition” title page.
I do not know if update sheets were prepared for subsequent
years.

"I have perhaps the most complete collection of NENA medal
issues outside of New England. I began collecting them in
the late 1950s, and have endeavored to keep the set current
and complete since that time. It was about 50 years ago that
I acquired examples of the early issues, pre-dating my
introduction to the series, from the late Maury Gould when
he was operating as Copley Coin in Boston."

[Cliff would also like to publish his new email address.
He writes: "Effective March 1, 2007, e-mail communications
for me should be directed to mish@EclecticPursuitsIola.com.
While my old address will remain in service for an undetermined
amount of time, the new address will be my primary account
going forward. -Editor]
