I was introduced to the numismatic community through friend and mentor Lee Minshull in May of last year. It all began when I purchased silver, ninety percent coins in as an investment but it sparked my interest in numismatics and coin collecting. From that day forward I have always been trying to better educate myself in numismatics. Being a young numismatist myself, I have found that there are many great resources to help further my education.

The American Numismatic Association (ANA - www.money.org) World's Fair of Money (WFOM) Convention held at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, in Chicago, IL on August 13 – 17, 2013. With over 550 bourse tables and a few dozen coin club tables, it was the largest ANA we have attended since the 1991 ANA show in this same convention center. The Show Guide was excellent and covered everything from A to Z. A huge thanks to all the dealers for taking tables and supporting the show, along with the early birds who purchased badges for early entree.
