Dennis Tucker of Whitman Publishing submitted this note about an upcoming event at this year's ANA Summer Seminar. Thanks. -Editor
Two Whitman authors, Ken Bressett and Bob Shippee, will be teaching a valuable interactive course at the American Numismatic
Association’s annual Summer Seminar this year. Should be very entertaining, as well as informative. Bob’s recent book (Pleasure and
Profit) has been getting a lot of rave reviews from collectors, and of course you can’t go wrong when Ken Bressett is your teacher.
This is from the ANA bulletin:
Featured Course for Session 2: Pleasure and Profit: 100 Lessons for Building and Selling a Collection of Rare Coins
The Session 2 course
"Pleasure and Profit: 100 Lessons for Building and Selling a Collection of Rare Coins," is part of a specialized-interest series.
Instructors Robert W. Shippee and Ken Bressett will focus on how to make collecting pleasurable and profitable. The class will offer
insight into how to make educated decisions when purchasing numismatic items and avoid costly mistakes.
Each student will leave with a wealth of knowledge in the subject, as well as an
autographed copy of Shippee's book, Pleasure and Profit: 100 Lessons for Buying and Selling a Collection of Rare Coins. Bring
your coins for "show and tell" and be prepared for an interactive experience. A numismatic prize will be awarded each day.

Session 2 is June 27 through July 2.
I taught a Summer Seminar course a couple years ago with Robert Hoge, Beth Deisher, and Ken Bressett, on writing, editing, research, and
publishing in numismatics. It was a lot of fun.
