The next VNA Board Meeting will be in conjunction with the Richmond Coin Show at the Acca Temple on on May 6th, 2018 at 7:30 AM. All are welcome to attend, VNA members and non-members. Come out and see what the VNA is all about.  Our goal is to get more people from western and southwestern VA involved with the VNA.

One suggestion from the Board Meeting was for each club to consider renting a van to drive to the VNA Convention,  Friday and Saturday. Room rates are reasonable and the VNA has rooms blocked off. You would have the banquet (there is a charge) , plus the experience of attending the Convention, with classes, exhibits and meeting new dealers. This would be a great experience, particularly for the western VIrginia club members  who may not want to come up alone.

HELP WANTED FOR VIRGINIA PAPER MONEY PROJECT

 

Following the success of the publication on Virginia tokens, the VNA is planning to produce a book on Virginia obsolete paper money. The book will cover all forms of paper money and related financial instruments used in the Commonwealth. Eric Schena will author the new work and is planning on covering the following types of notes:
 

State Treasury Notes
County & Municipal notes
Obsolete bank notes
Privately issued notes
Transportation notes (excluding coupons and similarly related tokens)
Panic & Depression Scrip
Advertising notes
Business school notes
Mining notes (excluding coupon books or similarly related tokens)
 

To make this project as comprehensive as possible, we need your help! We are looking for any notes that have not been catalogued in the 1991 Jones & Littlefield catalog or are unpublished in any similar works. One particular challenge will be scope of notes issued in what is now West Virginia. All pre-1863 notes will be included; however, because of the close relationship between the two states there is considerable cross-over appeal. Consequently, some of the later nineteenth century notes will be evaluated for inclusion, so unlisted WV should also be sent.  In addition, we will also need good color scans or photographs of notes to include. Illustration and contributor credit will be given where applicable. If you would like to assist in this project and contribute illustrations and listings, please contact Eric at eschena@hotmail.com for more details.

 

Cheers,
Eric

VNA members, I have a very important announcement. The VNA will NEVER under the guise of the Virginia Numismatic Association send you an email asking for donations for a specific cause. Please, if you should receive such an email, check the email address. It is a phishing scam. There is one going on now. Be very cautious. If you receive anything suspicious, check this webpage or the Facebook page. Do not respond to ANY emails asking for donations. Email me, the Webmaster, one of the Officers, or one of the Directors, if you have any questions. 

Thank you.
