Now that Clifford Mishler has thrown his hat in the ring to run for president of the American Numismatic Association in next year’s election, ANA members are talking about how the election might play out.
If you are one of those, you might find it worthwhile to listen to this week’s Coin Chat Radio program. I interviewed Cliff and he talked about his reasons for running against an incumbent vice president, which historically has led to the defeat of the challenger.
Cliff likes his chances against Vice President Patti Finner despite history and he cites his experience as CEO of Krause Publications and his more than half century as a collector and ANA members as reasons the ANA electorate might break their habit of standing by an orderly succession.
The interview is a part of the program that will be posted at www.coinchatradio.com at 11 a.m. Central Standard Time tomorrow.
Fans of the program might remember that we interviewed Patti Finner before the election campaign started on other topics, so I will have to schedule another one to catch up on events.
