There were two exhibits in the Numismatic Literature class at last week's American Numismatic Association convention in Chicago. The winners were announced as follows:
Class 17: Numismatic Literature – Aaron Feldman Memorial.
First Place: George Kolbe, "Numismatic Bibliography 1579-1912: The Literature of Numismatic Literature"
Second Place: Lawrence Sekulich, "Paul Manship's Book for the Circle of Friends of the Medallion."
George Kolbe adds:
I greatly enjoyed putting together my exhibit and would encourage other numismatic bibliophiles and researchers to do so in the future. The exhibit personnel, particularly Paul Hybert, were capable, cooperative, friendly, and quite encouraging to a first time exhibitor, as were the exhibit judges and a number of other exhibitors.
I have long opined that the joy of numismatic collecting is most clearly expressed at ANA summer seminars; now I would add the annual exhibit program as a close second.
