Last evening, we held another successful club meeting online via Zoom. There were 21 members in attendance, including two youth members. Mike W, a Leo, won the August birthday drawing. We had nine participants sharing items from their collections during Show & Tell. Martha D won the Show & Tell drawing. Thank you, Harold W, for running Show & Tell. Richard J won the attendance drawing. Thank you, Emile M, for running the attendance drawing. We had seven entrants for the Beauty & the Beast contest; three beauties and four “beasties”. Suzy T won the beauty with her Forever Love silver coin. There was a tie for the “beastie” category. Steve T’s crusted, clipped cent and Suzy T’s virtually indistinguishable and badly scratched quarter both won. Thank you, Gran G, for running this contest. A big “Thank you” goes to Mike W for his interesting and informative presentation on “Collecting Third-Party Grading Holders” explaining the history of various grading companies and collecting for the holders not the coins.
