Seeing Skyler Liechty’s very welcome announcement that Dave Bowers will address the MCA meeting at NYINC on January 9th reminds me
that I should have advised you before now of the British Numismatic Society meeting on the same day!
The London-based BNS was founded in 1903 and this will be our first ever meeting held outside the UK. Our aim is that it will become
an annual gathering at the NYINC and lead to further contact and involvement with our growing North American membership.
The meeting will be in the Beekman Suite at the Waldorf-Astoria on January 9th at 4 PM. The chair will be occupied by Ken Eckardt, a
renowned specialist in West Indies cut and countermarked coins, and the speaker will be Peter Preston-Morley, the subject matter ‘The
Transition from Hammered to Milled Coinage in the British Isles’. Besides being the secretary of the BNS, the speaker has been a regular
at NYINC since the Dick Margolis-organised shows of fond memory.
All those who are visiting the show and interested in British coins are very welcome to attend and there will be an opportunity to win
a year’s free Society membership!
I'm embarrassed to say this, but I have never been to a New York International show. That's sort of changing this year as I have
plans to be in the city for an American Numismatic Society event at the Waldorf Astoria and a visit to their offices. My wife is coming
along, so rather than haunting the coin show at other times, we'll be touring the city.
In addition to the blockbuster auctions by Classical Numismatics Group, Heritage, Stack's Bowers-Ponterio and Baldwin's, and the
major numismatic literature sale by Kolbe-Fanning, there are a number of organization meetings and presentations taking place. Here are
the events for Saturday, January 9, 2016. -Editor
