Minutes 02.03.11

The meeting was called to order by B. Gillespie, President. There were 13 members and 1 visitor present. The visitor later joined the club. The weather was bad resulting in a decreased number of members present.

The minutes from the January meeting were read and approved. There was no old business to discuss.

John E. gave a report on the meeting he had with some local Boy Scout leaders concerning the coin collecting merit badge program. They requested some further information about the coin club, and this will be put together for them.

Upcoming coin shows and locations was discussed. It was brought to the attention of the club that the number of coin shops in and around Austin has increased.

The program for this month’s meeting was a coin grading seminar. Three people who are experienced in grading coins, did so for several members. Over all, the response was good even with the small number of members present. Approximately 25-30 coins were graded including gold, Peace and Morgan dollars, key date cents, and some type coins. The grading committee reported the big problem was cleaned coins. A video on grading coins will be presented as the program for next month.

The meeting was concluded with the drawing for door prizes and the attendance prize.

The next meeting will be March 3rd.
