The Young Numismatists program held March 31 at the Manchester New Hampshire Coin & Currency show was a success, said Richard J. Hand Jr.
Hand expressed his thanks to the New England Numismatic Association, Littleton Coin Company (Coin Folders), ANACS (Sample Slabs) and the U.S. Mint (book markers and other items) for their donations.
Past and present presidents of the American Numismatic Association also showed their support. Gary Adkins gave needed rolls of coins, Hand said.
Adkins provided 1917, 1924, and 1930-D Lincoln wheat ear cents. After putting them in 2x2 holders, the YNs were taught grading.
They also played games like stack the cents, and there are free raffles.
Near the end of the YN event, Hand’s wife was asked to come by. Hand said he asked the YNs present if they would like to meet their son and daughter.
Jethro is three years and Jettee is three months. Naturally, when the kids saw that they were dogs, they stole the show.
