This presentation is full of tips and techniques the presenter has developed over his years of

Bob started collecting coins in 1968 while stationed in Japan with the United States Navy. Subsequent assignments in Germany, Scotland, and Spain, along with several Mediterranean cruises added to his core collections of circulating coins of countries visited. Following retirement from the Navy, Bob started collecting New Hampshire town medals, medals of the New England Numismatic Association, elongated coins, woods, Hard Times Tokens, Mardi Gras Doubloons, ancients, state quarters, “classic” US commemoratives, and certain European art and historical medals. He has held numerous active leadership roles in numismatics, and as a member of nearly 50 coin clubs, Bob has served on the Board for several and President of six. We are proud to have him sit on the Board of Directors of the MCA. Bob’s proudest achievements include serving as Assistant General Manager of the 2010 Boston World’s Fair of Money and sitting as a member of the New Hampshire State Quarter Committee.
