The South Carolina Numismatic Association held its 39th annual convention and show Oct. 28-30 in Greenville, S.C.
Greg Stowers, SCNA outgoing president, cut the ribbon at the Friday morning opening ceremony. More than 70 dealers had a total of 99 tables, and more than 1,000 attended the show. Dealers reported lively sales, with gold and silver bullion leading the way and collector coins not far behind.
A Young Numismatist program was spearheaded by Bob Hartje on Saturday morning and two adult programs were presented in the afternoon. Randy Campbell of Independent Coin Grading Service gave a talk entitled, “Five Ways to Make Yourself a Better Coin Grader,” and Tony Chibbaro offered a presentation on “The Numismatics of Fort Sumter.”
Several SCNA members were acknowledged at the Sunday morning banquet, including Arthur Darr who received the Numismatist of the Year award for his support of Young Numismatists throughout the state. This was the fourth year that Darr hosted the YN table at the convention.
