November Meeting

It’s back to basics for CONA members. While many of us know a great deal about some subjects, we’re pretty dense about others. Jim B. has developed a series of Basics 101 presentations for the Utica, Ohio, Coin Club. This month he’s going to give one on paper currency, starting with Colonial paper money and including Mt. Vernon, Ohio’s Owl Creek Bank notes, Hawaii bills and even brilliantly colored Gold Certificates. — Jim B.

October Meeting

Steve Petty gave a presentation on the 100th Anniversary of the Western Reserve Numismatic Club (WRNC). Steve unraveled the mystery of when the club was actually founded. (There were two competing versions) and discussed the club’s famous and extensive series of counterstamped coins. To mark significant dates in its history, the club has counterstamped numerous coins, including 1936 Cleveland commemorative half dollars. Steve noted that 1996 counterstamps marking the club’s 75th anniversary have gone for $750.
