SUBSCRIBER PROFILE: WILLIAM ROBINS

[Steve Graham provided this background information on
subscriber William Robins, an NBS member from Westchester
County, New York. -Editor]

It is probably safe to assume that there are relatively
very few, if any other, numismatic exhibits on display
today in museums throughout the United States which are
the creation of fifteen year old numismatists.  However,
there is one, “Carson City – A Numismatic El Dorado,”
which is the most recent exhibit assembled by William
Robins, and it is currently drawing crowds to the Nevada
State Museum, located in the original Carson City Mint
building.

The seven-case exhibit is the result of more than a year
and a half of dedicated research by young Robins, who was
inspired by his desire to understand more about Nevada’s
Comstock era and the connection between Carson City, the
CC Mint, and the nearby gold and silver mining bonanzas.

William’s exhibit was initially prepared for competition
at last year’s American Numismatic Association’s, World’s
Fair of Money, in Milwaukee.  Not surprisingly, especially
for those who know him, Will’s exhibit efforts were rewarded
with first place ribbons in the Western Americana and Young
Numismatist Exhibiting Excellence categories."

[Congratulations to William on his exhibiting success.
I understand he's preparing an exhibit for this summer's
American Numismatic Association convention in Baltimore.
That reminds me that it's not too soon for bibliophiles to
start planning to exhibit in the Numismatic Literature
category in Baltimore. -Editor]
