Speaking of exhibits, Anne Bentley of the Massachusetts Historical Society writes:
We're planning a knock-your-socks off exhibition for the summer with most, if not all, of our unique items and a host of other pieces. John Adams is curating with me, so the full Washington-Webster Comitia set will be on display, along with Vernon material to tie in with the new book.
Of course we won't forget the coin/currency collectors: the NE pieces, 1690 note and 1776 Mass. Pine Tree copper penny will also be displayed. Stay tuned to the A.N.A. website and The Numismatist July issue for more details. Coin World is also working on some informative features.
"Precious Metals: from Au to Zn" at the Massachusetts Historical Society, 1154 Boylston Street (3 blocks west of the Hynes Center)
from August 2 through September 11, 2010; public hours Monday-Saturday 1-4 P.M.
Special additional A.N.A. morning hours August 10-14 from 9-noon
Wow - now that's an exhibit. Numismatists should beat a path from the ANA convention to the door of the Society. Remember, the Numismatic Bibliomania Society is holding its annual meeting at the MHS building as well.
