RICHARD JEWELL EXONUMIA AT PAN SHOW

The E-Sylum (10/15/2017)


Book Content

I met Richard Jewell back in 2004, when I was serving as General Chairman of the American Numismatic Association convention. Although we both lived in the Pittsburgh area, we hadn't met yet. Rich had assembled a world-class collection of Three-Dollar gold pieces, which he later exhibited at the show.

Later Rich turned his attention to medals, assembling another top-notch collection which he often exhibited from at Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists (PAN) shows. Now he's cutting back on his collections and taking a couple tables at the upcoming PAN show to sell some of his accumulations. At my request he provided images of a few selected pieces. Pictured at right just below is the First Transatlantic Flight medal by Julio Kilenyi (101.7 mm). -Editor

I will have a booth at the PAN Fall Show and Convention, October 26, 27 & 28th at the Monroeville Convention Center, outside of Pittsburgh, PA. At booth # 608 & 609 you’ll be able to see some of Julio Kilenyi’s major medallic issues along with Mr & Mrs. James Earle Fraser’s works in bas relief, they will also be joined by works from Emil Fuchs, John Flanagan, Victor David Brenner, Donald De Lue and a few more artists from Europe.

Rich adds:

There could even be some ancients (Greek, Roman, Byzantine) available, not to mention a few Saints may be hanging around! Oh did I forget to mention pirate gold, or more historically correct, shipwreck pieces. The holidays are coming soon- so spend some time at the PAN Fall Show !

The PAN shows are great collector shows with heavy foot traffic and excellent exhibits and educational programs. The KidZone and other programs for young numismatists are FANTASTIC and very well attended (see the PAN ad in this issue). October is a great time to see the Western Pennsylvania fall foliage. If you haven't been to one yet, give it a try this year. -Editor
