It is correct that George Kolbe won first place for his exhibit at the ANA. You might also mention that he won the Thomas Law award as best first time exhibitor and placed as second runner-up for the Best-in-Show award.
Larry Sekulich had to settle for second place in the literature class. His other exhibit earned first runner up for best in show. Thus the two literature exhibitors took home second and third places for Best-in-Show.
Congratulations to George Kolbe! And Pete's no slouch himself. His exhibit on "The Challenging Literature of A. M. Smith" won 1st place in the numismatic literature class at the 1996 Denver, CO ANA convention. Not only that, the exhibit won Best in Show and Pete also won the best first time exhibitor award.
