New York International Numismatic Convention, Waldorf-Astoria
The Medal Collectors of America (MCA) will be holding its winter meeting during the NYINC. It will be held in the Lexington Room at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York on Saturday January 9th at 12 pm local time, and will feature a not-to-be-missed numismatic and historical program entitled “The Lure and Lore of American Medals”, by the renowned Q. David Bowers.
Mr. Bowers has won just about every important award the hobby offers including, COINage magazine Numismatists of the Century, Professional Numismatists Guild’s highest award the Founders Award, as well as being inducted into the Numismatic Hall of Fame. We are proud to add our own Carl Carlson Award to his list of accomplishments; the Carlson was bestowed on Dave at our meeting this past August, serving well to illustrate the breadth of his knowledge extending, as it does, through the standard U.S. Mint series all the way to specialties such as historical medals.
The Medal Collectors of America is an ANA Member club for collectors of world and U.S. art and historical medals. Contact us and we’ll send you a complimentary copy of the latest issue of our club publication, the MCA Advisory. It is guaranteed to be a “good read” if you set aside an hour to enjoy it.
Our purpose of course is to entice you to join others who love numismatic history, research, and medals worldwide from medieval times to the present. For more information, or to join MCA, email us at or visit us at visit us at www.medalcollectors.org.
