The latest addition to the Newman Numismatic Portal is a video of last week's "Invasion of Champaign." Project Coordinator Len Augsburger provided the following report. Thanks!
Invasion of Champaign Video
Dan Hamelberg in the “reading room” of his numismatic library
Under sponsorship of the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society, Lianna Spurrier produced a short video covering the Dan Hamelberg library tour on August 18, 2019. Speakers include Dan
Hamelberg, Wayne Homren, Chuck Heck, David Fanning, and Len Augsburger. Featured items are the John H. Hickox manuscript of An Historical Account of American Coinage, the Del Bland
correspondence and inventory files, the rare 1881 edition of Frank D. Andrews’ work on middle and late date large cents, and the F.C.C. Boyd appraisal of the Col. E. H.R. Green collection.
Although all of these items are outstanding, they represent but a small portion of the entire library, which boasts many similar items of equal import. The Numismatic Bibliomania Society is
grateful to Dan and Connie Hamelberg for opening their home to a group of fellow bibliophiles.
