BAY STATE COIN SHOW ARTICLE QUOTES HOBBY FIGURES

[Dick Johnson submitted the following notes on a Boston Herald
article by a team reporting from the recent Bay State show.
-Editor]

A father-son team -- both named Ted Ancher -- attended the Bay
State Coin Show this weekend.  The father is the narrator/
photographer, the son is the writer/producer.

They interviewed and photographed Harry Miller of Miller's
Mint of Patchogue, NY at his bourse table who said: "collectors
feel confident they have assets of real value and appreciation"
in the coins they own and purchase.

"It was not so long ago that we had the first million-dollar
coin," he said. "Now it is almost a common event."

Miller cautions anyone eager to launch into coin collecting
to study up on the field and become familiar with possible
pitfalls, such as overpriced coins and even fakes. "Go, look,
ask - speak to reputable people and look into areas you need
to know about," he said.

Both Beth Deisher of Coin World, and Doug Mudd, ANA curator,
were also quoted in the article, recounting recent events in
the field leading to the popularity of collecting coins, both
in new coins from the Mint and current economic factors.

As a sidebar article they wrote on the Lincoln cent, with a
photo of an S VDB. They told of early events of the cent and
the anticipated four new reverses in 2009. I was impressed with
the accuracy of the information in both articles.
