What seems to be a
secret to a great deal of people in our community, is the Newman Numismatic
Portal. This is a fabulous online research opportunity offered to all at no charge.
The NNP, as it is called, is funded by the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education
Society and administered by Washington University in St. Louis. Its stated goal
is “To provide the most comprehensive numismatic research tool available
online.”. In the words of the
late Eric P. Newman, “I have long wanted to make the literature and images
of numismatics, particularly American numismatics, available to everyone on a
free and forever basis,” said the 104-year-old Newman. “Today’s digital
technologies, combined with the funds recently assembled from auctions of some
of our foundation’s holdings, now make this possible.” It would be
impossible for me to describe everything available for us in this site. The
best way is for you to go there and dive in. It has very helpful instruction to
get the most out of this dream a great man had and has brought to fruition!
