ON THE REWARDS OF EXHIBITING

Bob Rhue writes: "Like anyone would, I enjoyed the treat
of seeing Alan Weinberg's exhibit at FUN.  Like Jim Halperin,
I hope Alan treats us to a viewing of his Massachusetts Silver
one of these days!

"Of particular interest to me was Alan's comment of how
'extremely rewarding' it was to exhibit some of the treasures
he's spent so much effort & so many years searching for and
acquiring. And also how unrewarding it is to have them sitting
in a dark bank box year after year.

"He echoes my sentiments so clearly, ones that I have
Previously expressed in these pages.  Yes, it does take a
definite commitment of time, expense, effort, and even a
level of risk to exhibit the little treasures that for some
often unknown reason appeal to us, & mean so much to us
individually.  The rewards are well worth it: the satisfaction
of sharing information & letting others view our 'spoils' in
whatever area of collecting interest we have; bragging rights;
camaraderie; and pride of ownership, to name a few.   All of
these things are much harder to enjoy when our 'items' are
eternally stuck in that dark bank box.

"And by the way, thanks so much Wayne, for all your efforts
in compiling this most fun publication, which brings such
enjoyment and connection to so many of us numismatists."
