Whew, They Made It; ANS Collection Traverses City Streets to New Home
Yesterday's New York Times reported on the move of the ANS coin collection to the Society's new home: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/16/nyregion/16coins.html?_r=1&scp=1&sq=ANS&st=cse&oref=slogin. I have already had an opportunity to see the new headquarters. Although I am sad that the ANS no longer owns its own building and that financial considerations have forced an abandonment of any effort to construct extensive display space for the public, the new facilities should be top notch for the needs of numismatic scholars of whatever sort i.e., archaeologists, art historians, collectors or even coin dealers. In any event, congratulations to the ANS staff for their fine work.
