ANA Class on Counterfeit Detection

From  President Parry Bragg: The ANA class will be held. The ANA will be taking new signups until the the 20th of September, not the cut off date as listed before . You must go through the ANA to sign up. The prices will remain the same .We are looking for more participants for the ANA Class on Counterfeit Detection, with an emphasis on mint marks. This will be a two day class Wednesday and Thursday from 9-5 at the Homewood Suites. The cost for ANA and VNA members is 259.00 and for non-members the cost is 359.00. We are hoping that individual clubs will help sponsor a VNA or ANA attendee to help defray costs.
