Greetings NCC Members and Guests-
The Nashua Coin Club recently held its annual banquet. At this event we give out awards. Two out of the four awards went to Young Numismatist's this year! We have one member whose passion brings me back forty five years ago to when I began becoming interested in coin collecting. I am hopeful that he stays with the hobby. We need these passionate young people for the future of our hobby.
I also set up at the Nashua Coin Show (3rd Sunday at the Holiday Inn). I especially like it when YN's come by the table. This past Sunday I was lucky enough to meet a young girl who is a YN. This is especially unusual as most collectors tend to be male. I extended an invitation to the club and I hope she and her dad join us some month. We hope that we are able to make a positive influence on their ongoing journey into the hobby.
Women have certainly have made and continue to make an impact on the field. There is now a club, "Women in Numismatics." Laura Sperber of Legend Numismatics is one of the leading experts in the field. One of the Clubs I am a member of, the Civil War Token Society has a female Vice President, Susan Trask. I mention these so that any women who happen to look at this realize this impact and that this wonderful hobby is certainly open to anyone who has the desire.
The Nashua Coin Club will be participating in an event at the Nashua Library on Saturday November 15th from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM. We will be doing 10 to 15 minute presentations on "How to Start a Coin Collection." If you are interested please join us. I expect it to be an informative morning and we will pass on lots of useful information.
