WASHINGTON BORN VIRGINIA 'MAGNIFI-CENT' VIEWED AT BALTIMORE SHOW

Richard Mantia writes: "I recently attended the Baltimore
show which was full of activity and profits. Although I wasn't
a buyer or a seller purposely I had a fantastic show and for
no other reason than I had the pleasure of meeting for the
first time and getting to know Mr. Alan Weinberg and Mr. Tony
Terranova. Among our discussions on the topics of "colonials"
was the Washington Born Virginia acquired by Mr. Terranova,
being the coin.

"Mr. Weinberg made a point of taking me over to Mr. Terranova
for the experience and appreciation of viewing this coin and
his assertion of 'Wow!' is accurate if not a bit understated.
As impressive as the coin is, the hospitality and warmth by
both of these gentlemen was more so. Without hesitation I was
given the opportunity to view this gem up close and have an
intellectual conversation concerning it and other colonials.
Making friends of these two fine men denoted a great show for
me and gaining more imparted knowledge from them only added
to it. The coin, yes the coin, it was and is "The Magnifi-CENT"
and is the finest colonial coin that could possibly exist by
strike and appearance. How appropriate that George Washington
is depicted on it - what an astute purchase by Mr. Terranova."
