July 2017 Newsletter

Since we hadn’t had a regular club meeting for a couple of months I suggested that we have an extended “Show and Tell” segment as our program for last meeting to catch up. We were certainly not disappointed in the amount of material displayed! 

I will try to mention all of the items but I will also be consolidating some things in the interest of space and time.

IMG 2338

Jerry Bodenhorn showed a number of framed coin displays including an ancient coin, a miniature gold coin, a Morgan $1, an Old West display of stamps and coins, and a 1964 JFK 50c. Nice displays and informational.

Last, but not least, Jim Phillips showed an obsolete South Carolina note, “Good for 1 Fare”, an FR-1310 Fractional note with perforations graded by PMG, and an engraving done by the American Bank Note Co. of Charles Carroll, a member of the Continental Congress. 

Obviously, we had enough to look at and keep us interested. This next month there will be no formal “Show and Tell” but with the luncheon we should have lots of free time for anything informal that you would like to display! So I’ll have a couple of things from the Coinarama show and if anyone else brings anything that would be great!


June 2017 Newsletter

Due to the Club Picnic we didn’t have a “Show and Tell” segment last meeting. Since I presume that some of us have accumulated a few items since April I thought it would be a good idea to have a combined and extended Program/Show &Tell. Also since we will also be having a Board meeting following our regular meeting a shortened program is probably a good idea. So if you have anything to brag about or show off or just want to display and talk about, this month is for you. I will have a few things of my own and encourage everyone to bring something in! And also remember to get your free raffle ticket for displaying a “Show and  Tell” item!      


May 2017 Newsletter

While we didn’t have a formal “Show and Tell” segment last meeting, but we did have over 100 lots of numismatic items on display for auc- tion! We will also only have an informal “Show and Tell” this month due to the Annual Picnic but feel free to bring anything you want to brag about or display and I’m sure there will be plenty of people around for discussion.


April 2017 Newsletter

We had a fair bit of “Show and Tell” material at the last meeting.

February 2017 Newsletter

Phil DeAugustino had a number of things to display at the last meeting. I see from the meeting notes that I received, that he displayed some additions to his Railroad Stock Certificates, which must be getting quite large by now. He also showed a number of Morgan dollars along with the current edition of the Comprehensive Catalog and Encyclopedia of Morgan and Peace Dollars. I also note that he displayed the latest additions to his collection of large currency which also should be getting respectable in size by now. Thanks Phil!

It was also noted that Dennis Hogan had brought a couple of display items. With any luck, he got his free raffle ticket and it was a winner!

I am hoping to display a few items at this meeting, in particular my “Secret Santa” gift, that I wasn’t able to display at the last meeting. I’ll have them in addition to my program materials, so we shouldn’t have any shortage of “Show and Tell”! I imagine that Phil will also have a couple of things so we should have plenty to interest everyone. Also,  just a reminder, to get your free raffle ticket for bringing in a “Show and Tell” item and Thank You’s to everyone that brings items in.

Phil DeAugustino brought a number of currency notes including a col- lection of 16 notes that had recently been returned from PCGS after grading. 11 of the notes were graded AU or better and it was quite the impressive collection. It is always a challenge to grade notes and then see what grades are assigned by a grading service. He also had 4 railroad stock certificates, 1ea. from the Penn Central, Lehigh Valley, New York Central, and the Erie-Lackawanna Railroads. He is really

acquiring quite the collection of railroad certificates. Very detailed vignettes and interest- ing to see!

Our new member Dave Flanders displayed a collection of Banknotes and Mint sets that he had inherited. Interesting collection!

Jerry Bodenhorn had his U.S. Type Set for display and while there was some argument as to whether his or mine was more impressive, the U.S. Type Set is a challenge to complete. Mary Ann also had bit of input in the coin selection for that set from what I heard!
