Visit with me at ANA
August 06, 2007
Begining this week and running through the 13th of August a majority of our numismatic hobby will be focusing their attention on the American Numismatic Association's big annual summer show. It's a broad event which can offer a great deal in the way of buying and selling opportunites for everyone and for all kinds of material.
You can find just about any type of U.S coinage or tokens, along with a wide variety of world coins, tokens and medals. There will be paper money from most any nation, probably some stocks and bonds and other fiscal instruments. Several world mints will be present and most major coin dealers. There will be many coin dealers from outside the U.S., set up at tables or walking the bourse floor. Club meetings, vest pocket dealers, collectors, accumulators, specialists, researchers, and more will all be gathered in Milwaukee, Wis., for a week's worth of numismatic fun.
And yes, even publishers will be there. Krause Publications will have a large booth area set up with information on our magazines, newspapers, books and internet products. We will have plenty of staff members there to answer your questions, help with subscriptions, show you our products and walk you through our newest internet product, NumisMaster. I'll be there too, from the 9th to the 11th, so stop by and we'll have a chat, I can sign a book for you, or I can show you how NumisMaster can help you to enjoy a fun hobby even more.
NumisMaster is a live catalog style database. You can use it to search for coins in your collecting area, identify a coin you may already have, value a coin you may have purchased years ago, or to do any other research live on the Internet. The KP database and catalog staff is updating NumisMaster all the time now, right on the Internet, live to the world. This new system makes for wonderful interaction and great market responsiveness, and you can test drive it live at the ANA convention in Milwaukee next week. See you there!
