    NBS Symposium (1991) 8/15/1991

    NBS Symposium (1991)

    NBS Evening Symposium at the 1991 American Numismatic Association convention in Chicago. Overall audio quality is poor to fair and indistinct at many points.

    P. Scott Rubin described the Symposium in the 1991 Fall Asylum, as follows: “That evening, we reconvene for Armand’s symposium with John Adams, Kolbe, Ford, myself and Moderator Champa talking books. As if Armand had not done enough already, he donated several hundred books and catalogues to attendees. Included were a Stickney with plates, a John Story Jenks without, plated Cogans, early auction sales and the first two volumes of the Numismatic Scrapbook. And George Kolbe donates an Adams Volume II.”
