Exonumia | Longstrider

I just found out from the powers that be at the ANA , there is a problem with putting pictures up on a new blog for everyone. Maybe that is why there haven't been any new blogs for a couple of days. I know it stops me. I feel a photo makes a good blog better. They are working on it. Lets hope it is fixed soon. Whatever "it" is. Thanks

Provenance and Pedigree

Exonumia | DrDarryl

Most collectors, numismatists and dealers interchange the terms provenance and pedigree. This should stop. POTUS Numismatic Artifacts treat these two terms with a precise difference when it comes to "Evidential Proof".

Numismatic Autographs

Exonumia | RyanK96

I posted something similar to this in the Facebook group some time back, but I'm genuinely curious if anyone here has a collection of numismatic autographs. Over the past few years I have written to several numismatic authors and notables.Harvey Stack

PCGS Rattlers

Exonumia | thatcoinguy

As our hobby grows more and more diverse, collecting interests have gotten broader and broader (which is not necessarily a bad thing!). Collecting interests have grown put to feature old Whitman blue folders, numismatic literature, thelowestgrade coins (a subject of a future blog!)... the list goes on and on. One section that has seen particular activity has been the collecting of slabs. Yes, some people collect slabs. Here's one of the coolest kinds of slabs (in my opinion), and one of the most highly collected.

Tokens for the "afterlife"

Exonumia | AC coin$

While re-arranging part of my library and putting away some of my art and history books, I stumbled upon a copy of a magnificent art catalog published in joint cooperation between the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC and, the United Exhibits Group of Coppenhague, Denmark in 2002. The well published art catalog is titled "The Quest for Immortality: Treasures of Ancient Egypt." Within its pages many Egyptologists and additional experts have exposed for future generations their insights and knowledge regarding the ancient Egyptians and their path thru earthly time. I chose to read again Dr. Erik Hornung's exquisite esssay titled: "Exploring the Beyond" enclosed in this great publication. Dr. Erik Hornung (1933) is a Swiss born World reknown Egyptologist. My writing is a humble way to connect a study of the belief in an afterlife with a numismatist item: the token.One of the most intriguing and fascinating revelations might come from the ancient Egyptians and their belief in the afterlife. Many cultures after them incorporated this thought of a realm earned with a granted passage by a "token" of material value given to a deity or "overseer" who led the soul of a fervent or misfortunate being (as justified beliefs applied to individuals) into his/her new existence.
