The John Burns Reference Library was a popular gathering spot during the recent American Numismatic Association National Money Show held the last
weekend of March in Pittsburgh PA. The donation container yielded $155. This may not seem to be very much money but it helps PAN, the library
manager, with library up-keep costs and supplies.
Author John Highfill donated a copy of his two-volume set of The Comprehensive U.S. Silver Dollar Encyclopedia. The 2017 latest edition is
1,566 pages of images, charts, graphs and information covering the early Flowing Hair coins, Draped Bust, Gobrecht, Seated Liberty, Morgan, Trade and
ending with the Peace Dollar series.
John Highfill (past National Silver Dollar Roundtable President) and his wife Marlene (current NSDR Secretary) are often seen manning the National
Silver Dollar Roundtable booth at the major national coin shows across the country. NMS show was no exception. Their booth was next to the Burns
Library at the National Money Show. They were both impressed with the traveling library concept that offers a space to sit, relax and browse through
the 400+ volumes of numismatic books during the coin show.
John Highfill is also an ANA Governor and is currently running for re-election. His book is available for sale through Amazon, Barnes and Noble,
eBay Books. It is also available in digital form. For more information email: email@example.com
If you are a numismatic book author and would like to donate a copy of your book to the Burns Library please send to:
1985 Lincoln Way
Suite 23 #225
White Oak PA 15131
In return we will create an article about your book and your kindness in supporting the Burns Library. If you are attending a show where the
library is set up then we would be glad to take a promo photo that will be placed on the PAN website and in the award winning PAN eNEWS.
