Numismatic Bibliomania Society (NBS) member Howard A. Daniel III, will be manning a club table for NBS (and IBNS, NI & PCF) at the American Numismatic Association National Money Show in Portland. There is a map to the convention center at www.money.org. There will be about 400 free packets with world coins from NI and a banknote from IBNS to be given to young and new numismatists at the club table. And references donated by NBS members and members of other societies will also be given to scout counselors to assist their scouts in earning a numismatic merit badge, and to teachers for their Coins in the Classroom events.
Howard will be the moderator of the International Bank Note Society (IBNS) meeting Saturday morning (March 14) at 11AM in a meeting room described in the show program and all NBS members are welcome to join it. All NBS members are welcome and should bring something from home or bought on the bourse to describe during the show and tell part of the meeting.
There is often a Mini-Fest during the last 15 minutes of the IBNS meeting but Howard has not yet notified about one. This part of the meeting is conducted by collectors of Military Payment Certificates (MPC) and other military financial instruments and Military Fest Certificates (MFC) are usually "paid" to the attendees. Whether you are a collector of militaria or not, you will enjoy the Fest.
Howard will also be the moderator for an NI meeting at 12PM (Noon) in the same meeting room. All NBS members are welcome and should bring something from home or bought on the bourse to describe during the show and tell part of the meeting.
There will be a footlocker-sized amount of references shipped out by Howard to be given out at the club table in the name of NBS. If any NBS members would like to contribute some old/duplicate general references to NBS to give out at this and future shows, please bring them to the club table. Otherwise, you can contact Howard at HADANIEL3@MSN.COM and arrange for the transfer at a future show or to ship them to him.
The club table on the bourse can be designated as a meeting place for NBS members and members can also volunteer to man it so Howard can look around the bourse and attend other meetings. Howard is looking forward to meeting new and old NBS members in Portland!
