Here are some additional reader comments regarding last week's birthday item for Eric P. Newman, who just turned 103.
This one is from Colonial Coin Collectors Club officer
Ray Williams, who writes:
Here's a picture of Eric as our featured speaker during our C4 Educational Forum in 2001, when he was a spry 90 years old! Looking at that tie, I think someone at the Newman Sale was wearing that exact tie!!!

The black and white image supplied by Ken Bressett was taken by me and it is from Coin World's archives. I provided it to him a couple of years ago when we were trying to confirm the date.
I'm pretty sure it was taken after the Rittenhouse Society's meeting during the 1984 ANA Convention in Detroit. Bill Fivaz and his wife Marilyn attended the Rittenhouse Society breakfast meeting. However, Bill had to leave early to attend another meeting; thus he is not in the picture. I was on my way to cover another meeting when Margo saw me in the hallway and asked me to take a photo of the Rittenhouse group.
