The Newman Numismatic Portal stars in a great new video on the landmark 1942 ANS exhibit of Massachusetts silver coinage published by Ron Guth. Check it out - what a mind-blowing exhibit, and great numismatic history.
In 1942, the American Numismatic Society hosted an exhibit of approximately 500 Massachusetts Silver Coins dated circa 1652. The exhibition included loans from prominent collectors such as T. James Clarke, Carl Wurtzbach, and William B. Osgood Field (who owned a record number of eight New England Shillings and one New England Sixpence). The American Numismatic Society memorialized the exhibit in a photo album that currently resides in their collection and which has been made available on the Newman Numismatic Portal. For anyone interested in early American Colonial coins and, specifically, Massachusetts Silver coins, this video is a first look at this little-known photo album and exhibit.
