I gotta start going to the American Numismatic Association Summer Seminars again.
Mint Director Ed Moy is in Colorado Springs, Colo., for a meeting of the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee, which will be held at 6:30 p.m. tonight on the campus of Colorado College. This is the first week of the annual Summer Seminar.
George Cuhaj of our catalog staff is attending, so he will get to see what is going on.
That is appropriate. He is a longtime supporter of the Boy Scouts and the author of a guide book on Boy Scout collectibles.
Tonight’s topic will be possible designs for the Boy Scout silver dollars.
You would think we planned it.
The Commission of Fine Arts has already seen the designs and its members were not impressed.
With a hoped for room full of committed hobbyists, perhaps the CCAC will have an even truer sense of what collectors might like in a design.
There will also be a public forum, so it is my guess that many opinions will be widely shared.
Even though I would like to be there, I think George deserves the assignment.
Go get ’em, George.
