Exhibiting will be one of the truly educational dimensions of the ANA World's Fair of Money to be held in Los Angeles, August 5-9. A number of E-Sylum readers will bring their prized material to that show to educate other collectors as well as the public. Some exhibit non-competitively, but the majority of exhibitors are driven by their competitive juices to vie for numismatic honors on behalf of their holdings.
Some of you are the very judges who evaluate exhibits for first, second, and third place prizes as well as the several other awards, including the prestigious Howland Wood Best in Show honor. Chief Judge Sam Deep asks the rest of you to consider joining with the current group of experts in their respective field who will umpire over 100 exhibits this year. Judges are quite literally a dying breed and our hobby needs your help.
Sam offers a two-hour course on Wednesday at 10AM in LA that will ready you for the job. After practicing your skills on a few of the exhibits, you and he can then decide whether it's a calling that you will continue at future conventions. Email Sam at email@example.com with your questions or to sign up for the Judge's Familiarization and Certification Program next month.
