Last week Dick Johnson passed along information from the New England Numismatic Association about their new project to update the catalog
of medals of the Massachusetts Tercentenary of 1930. The project coordinator email address has been changed from what appeared in the
NENA newsletter. The correct address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. -Editor
The Tercentenary project coordinator writes:
The project is now a work in progress. Shepard Pond wrote a series of articles which were published starting in June of 1931. This work is
now available on-line using the ANA archives for The Numismatist.
His work also appears in the ANA reprint series dating back to the early seventies under the title, Medals of the Massachusetts Bay
Tercentenary - 1930. This 36-page booklet which originally sold for a $1.00 is now a collector’s item and can sometimes be found on
eBay and Amazon. Mr. Pond lists 67 major varieties and numerous adaptions of the medals in his work. Omitted are pinbacks issued by
various cities and towns and the many items using standard designs for awards and souvenirs. We hope to see some of these items included
in our updated version.
Please contact the coordinator if you have any medals or information connected with this series. Thanks! -Editor
