ANA Summer Seminar 2014

Summer Seminar | Amanda Varner

The ANA’s annual Summer Seminar is a fantastic week long event dedicated solely to educating numismatists of all ages and all skill levels.  Their course catalog is comprehensive, covering a vast area of numismatics, and the chance to meet and rub elbows with some of the best in the business is worth the trip alone.  This year marked my second journey to Colorado Springs, Colorado for the Summer Seminar and this week was by far my favorite yet!  I can tell you now I’ll be back each year for the foreseeable future.

There was so much jam-packed into that one week that I couldn’t possibly begin to cover it all without writing a novel.  I took a ton of pictures (and had several people send their pics to me to use), and I’m going to let them do most of the talking for me.  This year I took Intermediate Coin Grading (also known as Grading 2), and I’ve also decided to include my notes from the class in the hopes of helping others over here in Nuggets.  

Saturday was essentially a travel day, with no classes scheduled until Sunday.  There was a generous window of time allotted for students to arrive at the Colorado Springs Airport, and a free shuttle to the campus appeared frequently.  My flight left LAX at 8am (abject misery), and I arrived in Colorado Springs a couple hours later...
