numismatists come together and work relentlessly for three days
straight to put together an amazing auction. All proceeds from the
auction go in to the YN Scholarship Fund.

This year's auction head was Katie Reinders. The head of lot
donations is Luis Ramos, cataloging is Peyton Souder, lot viewing

donate to the auction. Every donation, no matter how
