Eastern States Numismatic Association (ESNA) Can anyone tell us more about the Eastern States Numismatic Association? I know Charlie Davis edited a great but short-lived journal for the
group called Numisma. The ANS library only has vol. 1, no. 2 (Winter 1998). It incorporated the MANA Journal and GENA Lamp. All three organizations are dormant or defunct.
Middle Atlantic Numismatic Association (MANA)
Here's some information on the MANA Journal, from an article on Walter Breen's publications by David Fanning in the Summer 2004 Asylum:
The MANA News (later changed to MANA Journal) was the journal of the Middle Atlantic Numismatic Association. It first appeared in July 1953 with Breen sharing the editorship with
Dick Johnson. Breen continued as editor through the name change in 1957. By October 1957, he is listed as associate editor, in which capacity he continued through 1958.
Laurese Katen was also an editor of the MANA Journal.
Great Eastern Numismatic Association (GENA)
I found many references to the Great Eastern Numismatic Association conventions on the Newman Numismatic Portal but little about the organization itself or its publications.
Can anyone tells us more about the history of these three organizations? Would anyone have significant runs of their periodicals? Contact me at email@example.com . Thanks.
