FEATURED WEB SITE
Today's featured web site is the Chicago Coin Club
(http://www.chicagocoinclub.org/), since the
featured speaker at tonight's meeting is one of our own
NBS Board members. From the CCC web site:
"Featured Speaker: Dr. Joel J. Orosz on Early U.S. Coin
Collectors (Pre-1840's) One of the earliest numismatic
sales in the U.S. was held November 1, 1858. More than one
book refers to this date as the beginning of our hobby in this
country. They do not know that numismatists had already been
active for more than a century. Dr. Orosz has researched these
early collectors through historical periodicals and journals
and has uncovered many fascinating stories of people like Rev.
Andrew Eliot, Boston; Pierre Eugene Du Simitiere, Philadelphia;
Rev. John Christopher, New York City; and Robert Gilmor, Jr.,
Baltimore. His well-written papers on this subject have received
numerous awards due in large part to his ability to extract
relevant information that is pertinent to today's coin collectors."
