The Goodfellow Coin Club of Crown Point, Ind., recently donated 31 coin reference books worth $600 to the Lake County Indiana Library.
The purchase and donation was assisted by a subsidy program sponsored by the Central States Numismatic Society to which the club belongs.
A donation committee chaired by club secretary/treasurer Dan McDowell developed a preliminary wish list of books. They were purchased from Northern Illinois Coin & Stamp at the Illinois Numismatic Association’s 53rd Coin and Currency Show in Tinley Park, Ill. Book topics included U.S. coins and currency, Canadian coins, coin grading and reference books on specific coin types and varieties.
The Goodfellows acknowledge CSNS’s generous subsidy and is investigating other possible donations in the coming years.
The club meets the fourth Tuesday of the month at the Sportsmen Club in Crown Point. To obtain more information about the club and its activities, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
