A Call to Exhibit

The New England Numismatic Association is seeking exhibits for our 74th, Conference and Convention. The exhibit competition will take place on Saturday November 10th, 2018 at the Double Tree by Hilton/Manchester Downtown Hotel, 700 Elm Street, Manchester, NH.

In this issue of NENA News we have included the Exhibit Rules and Application. The Application needs to be filled out letting the Exhibit Coordinator (s) know the time of arrival one is going to set up the exhibit. All exhibitors have a deadline to fill out and send an application with the title and numismatic area of exhibiting, and the Exhibits have to be set up by a certain time so that cases can be locked and judged. An exhibit would consist of a title, numismatic items and usually but not necessarily numismatic information. Numismatic information usually enhances an exhibit especially if the exhibiting is to be competitive with judging. On request NENA will provided the use of display cases if needed.

Awards will be presented based on the overall rating of the Judges. The Best of Show award will be presented to the exhibit which has the highest overall rating and will receive a plaque and a prize award of a 1/10 ounce gold Eagle. Second and Third Place will receive an engraved plaque and a 1oz. Silver Eagle.

The People’s Choice Award will be decided by ballots cast by exhibit viewers and will receive an engraved plaque and a 1oz. Silver Eagle.

Junior Applicants under age 18 will also be eligible to receive a Y.N. Award Plaque for First, Second or Third Place. In addition they will also receive a numismatic prize.

Everyone has expertise in some collecting area, so if you are looking for a way to share this then exhibiting can be a wonderful way of doing it. NENA is always looking for people to set up and display an exhibit. If you have never set up an exhibit before notify NENA and we can help you. It is always a great learning experience.
