The latest addition to the Newman Numismatic Portal is a new video about the Boy Scouts coin collecting merit badge. Project Coordinator Len Augsburger provided the following
Recently added to Newman Portal is a video from Lianna Spurrier aimed at Scouts BSA members looking to acquire the coin collecting merit badge. There are ten
requirements in the current manual (which George Cuhaj informs us is being reworked) covering numismatic basics, with a emphasis on U.S. issues.
The BSA merit badge doesn't aim to turn kids into large cent attribution experts but rather provides a beginning exposure to the hobby and hopefully delivers a few tools to
help more interested members move along further as enthusiasm warrants.
