MORE ON THE CATALOG OF NEW ENGLAND NUMISMATIC ASSOCIATION MEDALS

Regarding our earlier discussions, Bob Fritsch writes: "I,
too, have the 1972 Thomas B. Ross NENA Medal Catalog, plus
the loose-leaf catalog compiled by Bob Heath.  Originally
issued in 1994, Bob did several updates to the content of
the catalog as new medals were issued by NENA and new
information came to light.  His most recent update was in
2005, distributed at the 2005 NENA Conference in Bedford, NH
in October of that year and included everything up to and
including that year's medal.

"Bob used a half-page format (5.5x8.5) which kept the catalog
compact but it was hard to find binders that would accommodate
the format.  His Massachusetts catalog, for example, runs to
four volumes of 1-inch binders. All six State catalogs and
the NENA catalog were in this format.

"Alas, Mr. Heath died unexpectedly in December 2005.  His
family, acting on his instructions, has parceled out the
six New England State Catalogs plus the NENA catalog to
numismatists throughout the region.  Some have already
issued new catalogs under their names while others have
not.  I was the recipient of the NENA catalog, due to my
status as Past President of the organization and having
one of the better collections of NENA material in existence.
As I have the original pages on the computer, I can and
will issue reprints for a nominal fee to those who request
them.  However, since NENA does only one medal per year
and since there is not a lot of new information forthcoming
on these medals, I do not plan to update the catalog until
the 2010 medal has been issued.

"My email is bobfritsch@earthlink.net for those who
wish further information.  Please use 'NENA Catalog'
in the subject line so I don't toss out the good emails
with the spam."
