It?s a once-in-lifetime opportunity for aspiring numismatists.
Applications are now being accepted for a summer numismatic internship with Numismatic Guaranty Corporation and Numismatic Conservation Services of Sarasota, Fla.
The program will be conducted at the company headquarters in Sarasota.
Interns work alongside numismatists in the firm. Available positions include work in authentication, variety attribution, grading, conservation, digital imaging, research, submission management, and encapsulation of U.S. and world coins, including tokens, medals, and Colonial coinage.
?This internship will foster the development of skills that would normally take years, if not decades, to acquire,? said Rick Montgomery, NGC president and senior grader.
NGC and NCS will provide a stipend and lodging as well as transportation to and from Sarasota, if needed.
To be considered, applicants should be at least 18 years of age by the start of the internship and have a background and interest in numismatics as a career.
To accommodate more applicants and their varied schedules, this position is offered during the summer or fall of this year. The duration may vary depending on academic scheduling.
Successful candidates may also have the opportunity to attend one of the major coin shows that NGC and NCS attend.
To apply, candidates must send a resume and a letter describing their numismatic background, interests and goals to Certified Collectibles Group, Attn: Scott Schechter, P.O. Box, 4776, Sarasota, FL 34230, or by fax to (941) 360-2553, or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
