Oakstone Academy: 939 State St. Westerville, Ohio 43081
Topic: Colonials 101
Speaker: Bruce S. 

October Presentation

The front of the Red Book has always fascinated me. NE shillings, VALUE ME AS YOU PLEASE coppers and birds fighting over long and short worms.

Bruce S. presentation on Colonials 101 will be an overview of the pre-1792 coinage. He said, “We’ll look at ways to define colonial coinage and how colonials are collected. There will be information about rarity and the expense of collection colonials. I’ll also share a bibliography and a list of other resources.” 

Expanded Show and Tell

Next May or June, I’d like to do an expanded show and tell as our main presentation – 10 speakers, 5 minutes each, their favorite coin.

This won’t require any preparation, just a willingness to share a coin you really like and tell us why it’s so special to you.

No Green Hat medals for this. If you’re interested, please let me know and I’ll start a list. — Gerry

New Show Location

Dublin Crowne Plaza, our show’s home for more than a decade, is closing Nov. 15 for renovation, reconfiguration and reflagging as a Doubletree. The reconfigured hotel will not have room for our show.

Consequently, the show will move for at least 2020 and 2021 to the nearby Embassy Suites, 5100 Upper Metro Pl., which promises to be as good if not better.
