NEW YORK NUMISMATIC CLUB CENTENNIAL HISTORY PUBLISHED

NY Numismatic Club 100 Years Book Cover George Cuhaj writes:

While I was at the NYINC I was able to pick up my copy of the New York Numismatic Club's Centennial History and medal. The book's title is "An Island of Civility - The Centennial History of the New York Numismatic Club 1908/09 - 2008/09". It has 437 numbered pages, and is limited to 125 copies. The Club history is authored by John Kleeberg, and the club medal section by David T. Alexander.

The medal is by Eugene Daub and struck in a very limited number in silver and bronze. The medal features on the obverse the Liberty head from Saunt-Gaudens' Sherman monument, and the reverse a montage of J. Sanford Saltus and Edward Newell looking at a coin while Henry Grunthal looks at the Liberty Statue.

I'm looking forward to reading the book. The New York Numismatic Club has long been a gathering place for many of the country's greatest numismatic collectors and researchers, and its story is a large part of the history of numismatics in the U.S. Congratulations to John and David for their accomplishment in documenting the club's long and interesting history. Does anyone have information on how to order the book? -Editor
