Bentley Receives ANA Presidential Award

Anne Bentley, our Curator of Art, was presented with a Presidential Award by the American Numismatic Association, meeting in Boston this week.

The plaque below the medal (pictured at left) reads: "Thank you for your outstanding contributions to our hobby community."

With John W. Adams, Anne is the curator of our current exhibit, "Precious Metals: From Au to Zn," which you can view Monday-Saturday, 1-4 p.m. here at the Society through 2 October.

Anne was feeling far too modest this morning to comment on her award, but she said "Come see the show. We've got some great items on display, and you'll have a chance to learn some interesting things about your history."

We're so proud of you, Anne - congratulations on this well-deserved honor!
