Off to Connecticut
March 28, 2008

I have to pack my bags to head out to Willimantic, Conn. I will be attending the Mansfield Numismatic Society show there on Sunday.

It is a great opportunity for me to see and visit with hobbyists on the East Coast in a setting that is not as rushed as a major numismatic event like the American Numismatic Association World's Fair of Money, which is coming up in July in Baltimore.

The ANA conventions are certainly important and enjoyable, but the sheer business of being busy at the national convention can impede the spontaneous interactions that make collecting such an interesting pursuit.

If you happen to be within driving distance of the show, you might consider putting it on your list of weekend things to do.

It is in the Gymnasium Building at 233 Prospect St. Admission is free, so bring the family.

I am looking forward to it.
