Here are some pics from St. Louis.

The first is Notlogical meeting Eric P. Newman at the awards banquet. Notlogical won an award for an article on the Cheerios Sacagawea
Dollar. Way to go!

Next we have Notlogical and CoinHusker (Proud dad) with me at my table

This is a picture of Cape doing the Treasure Hunt. (Cape sounds like he's from Cape Cad or something.) He was sitting across from me, so I just snapped the picture to show the kids having fun.

Next is a show shot. Notice Cliff Mishler at the right. Please vote for him for ANA Gov.

Here is Coppercoins doing some work. (Thanks for the ride to the airport, Chuck)

And lastly here is poor Meriwether Lewis drowning by the Eads Bridge. The river was at flood stage and this was taken on Wednesday. By Saturday it was a foot higher. It was supposed to crest today.

    Nice Pics! I was at the show thursday and friday and looked at some of your coins but you were always busy so i didn't get the chance to introduce myself. I really enjoyed the show and got to meet several of the dealers who regularly post here like Laura (am i allowed to say that name?) and ColonialCoinUnion. They were very nice and allowed me to look at some coins which i obviously could not afford as a 17-year old. My dad was able to pick up two seated dollars for his set along with a duplicate 1885 MS-64 Liberty nickel which is the nicest liberty nickel in a 64 holder i have ever seen! The highlight of the show for me was holding the libertas Americanas medal at the stacks table, Wow!

    We also went up in the Arch, what a blast and view! Sorry I kind of hijacked your thread but i just wanted to give a quick report of the show from my point of view.
    Want to buy an auction catalog for the William Hesslein Sale (December 2, 1926). Thanks to all those who have helped us obtain the others!!!

    Seems like Samuel has a very bright future in Numismatics if he so decides. Congrat's to Samuel on the award and Dad for his efforts in raising a young person in today's world!

    Wow. Someone his age meeting an icon like Eric Newman...dang, that's cool.

    I'm trying to think of what the equivalent would be in my life....whom could I meet in 1980?
  • EagleEyeEagleEye Posts: 7,657 ✭✭✭✭✭
    whom could I meet in 1980

    Abe Kosoff. I saw him at my first ANA in 1976, but didn't have the guts to say "Hi".

    I guess everyone knows who notlogical is but who is Eric Newman and was he honored to meet notlogical?

    << <i>Abe Kosoff. >>

    Good call. After I posted this, I decided that was the closest comparison I could come up with in that time frame.

    Thing is, I never went to any big shows at that age. I would have been 14 to start 1980, and knowing what I know now, the chance to meet Abe Kosoff would have been fantastic -- about like my dad meeting B. Max Mehl, 25-30 years earlier, I suppose.
  • Thanks for posting those great photos! They are really nice and make me wish I was there. Too bad there are a minority of stiff neck show operators who frown on photos, what party poopers!

    << <i>I guess everyone knows who notlogical is but who is Eric Newman and was he honored to meet notlogical? >>

    He's the guy on Mad Magazine. No, wait, that's Alfred E Neuman.

    Eric P. Newman

    And yes, I am sure he was honored to meet notlogical too.
  • EagleEyeEagleEye Posts: 7,657 ✭✭✭✭✭
    who is Eric Newman and was he honored to meet notlogical

    Actually he was very impressed with Sam.

    Eric said at the event that he considered himself a numismatic fossil!

    What a wonderful report & pictures. Congratulations, Samuel. I'll bet that Mr. Newman was thrilled to meet a YN with your enthusiasm and knowledge.

    I agree. Heck, I'm happy to meet grown-ups with his enthusiasm and knowledge image

    If I remember correctly, a few years ago you wrote about the Wisconsin quarters, this year the Cheerios Sac., what is in the works for next year?

    Congrats!

    Thanks Rick for the fantastic pictures! It was really a fun weekend and one we will all remember for a long time. It makes the 17 hours total in the car (there and back) not seem so long after all.

    We are really proud of our YN and truly appreciate all the support he receives from so many on these boards. Thanks to one and thanks to all!

    Thanks Mr. Snow! And thanks everybody else. It was a great weekend! I saw a lot of people I knew and met a lot of new people too! I missed my science fair that I've been working on a project for, but that's OK because this was way better!

    Samuel, next time you meet Mr. Newman, mention that you heard his favorite numismatist of all time is Dr. William Sheldon. image

    Oh BTW, congrats on the meeting. Oh yeah, The Eagle That is Forgotten is a cool book. image
