Vice President’s Message – Winter 17

E-mail Print

Greetings NCC Members and Guests-

Another new year is upon us.  Do you have any New Years Resolutions about your coin collecting?  Maybe to buy that 1909-SVDB to fill that last hole on your Lincoln Cent collection?  Maybe to attend more coin shows during the year?  As you may have noticed in the show calendar, the Westford show has moved to a new location which is now at the Devens Common Center in Devens MA (most of us from central MA know as Fort Devens).  I would suggest one more resolution on your list.  Make it a point to attend a Nashua Coin Club mtg. if you have never been.  We always welcome guests.  We would be happy to have you.  If you plan on bringing a youth (we have several YN's, which are Young Numismatist's) send the President an e-mail through this website.  He will let some of the members know.  We are very good to any new youth attending, frequently sending them home with many free donations from some of the members.

We have a Coin of the Month topic each month at our meetings.  The February topic is Hometown Numismatics.  This means that members are encouraged to bring in items from their own hometowns.  For people from larger communities such Nashua, Manchester, Concord and Lowell (MA) this is probably a bit easier.  Town medals, National Bank Notes, Hard Times or Civil War Tokens, Transportation or Merchant Tokens are all possibilities.  Lowell, MA had one Hard Times Token issued in the 1830's (these were issued to help replace the need for small change and also to advocate political views).  Lowell also had an interesting part in Civil War numismatics.  This was also a time when gold, silver and even copper coins disappeared from circulation.  One alternative was encased postage stamps that circulated as money.  James C. Ayer of Lowell saw this as a great way to advertise his Sarsaparilla and other "medicines" and bought thousands of these encased stamps with his advertisement on the reverse.  Lowell banks including the Appleton and Union banks also issued many National Bank Notes (large size "horseblankets") during the late 1800's/early 1900's.  The February meeting is sure to bring an interesting array of items and stimulate some good discussion.  Guests always welcome!
