NEW YORK NUMISMATIC CLUB CENTENNIAL HISTORY PUBLISHED
The E-Sylum (1/24/2010)
While I was at the NYINC I was able to pick up my copy of the New York Numismatic Club's Centennial History and medal. The book's title is "An Island of Civility - The Centennial History of the New York Numismatic Club 1908/09 - 2008/09". It has 437 numbered pages, and is limited to 125 copies. The Club history is authored by John Kleeberg, and the club medal section by David T. Alexander.
The medal is by Eugene Daub and struck in a very limited number in silver and bronze. The medal features on the obverse the Liberty head from Saunt-Gaudens' Sherman monument, and the reverse a montage of J. Sanford Saltus and Edward Newell looking at a coin while Henry Grunthal looks at the Liberty Statue.
