The 2015 Golden State Coin Show was well attended and by all accounts a success. Business was good for the dealers, which means many collectors found happy additions for their collections (or in some cases happy sales from their collections). The following event photos share a bit of what went on at the show and, in particular, the Saturday evening banquet…
Mary Yahalom (center) along with her sister, Sue, and Alex Jaramillo, staffed the registration desk to the show and as you can see by the look of delight on Alex’s face, were quite eager to collect showgoers entry fees. Dealers reported above-average attendance at the show, so it looks like the extra advertising paid off for everyone.
The morning of the show, ANA President Walt Ostromecki presented Harold Katzman with an ANA Presidential Award for Harold’s significant contributions to the hobby, and for his participation on the ANA’s policies and procedures committee in particular. The handsomely framed award was accompanied by a enameled lapel pin with the same theme.
At the Saturday evening banquet Mary Yahalom and Don Foster (center) had to bribe adultbeverage guard G. Lee Kuntz to part with some of the available wares. Let’s hope that Lee turned in the cash to the restaurant at the end of the evening; we’d like to be welcomed back next year.
The banquet was again held at the Coco’s in Arcadia, a venue that’s always been a reliable treat, both from the just-the-right-size of the facility, to the friendly hospitality and plenty of delicious food served up by hostess Cindy. Salad, salmon, chicken, prime rib, rice, pota- toes, vegetables, and a bevy of desserts and beverages greeted the lucky attendees.
Exhibits Chairman Roy Iwata (center) presents the first place exhibit award to Ken Spindler (left) for his exhibit on “The Story of Chinese Chopmarked Silver Coins”, and the second place exhibit award to Phil Iversen for his exhibit “Fiesta De Los Angeles”.
Jeff Stahl received the Speaker of the Year Award, presented here by Awards Chair Joyce Kuntz, for his many forays out to various Southern California clubs to share his knowledge and stories on a variety of topics. Jeff’s current passion is for Mexican coinage.
