*** Vol III *** June 2004 *** Issue VIII ***

Howdy Folks - Welcome to The Tarnished Truth !

Well May is over and summer is almost upon us. Some say that the coin market slows down in summer as everyone partakes of outdoor activities. But with Long Beach just around the corner and all the major house pre-auctions, there will be one more flurry of activity beforehand. I myself have always enjoyed the summer coin market and its slowdown because it presents the opportunity to obtain additional items for my collection at often reduced prices. Interesting items can be rather hard to find at times though.

WINS is currently seeking volunteers to participate on the Society Token Committee. So c'mon folks - step up and offer to help out ;-} For more information on this please see the message regarding the Token Committee from our Society President in this month's President's Corner.

And here are the answers to the contest, sponsored by our Treasurer, Ken Hughes - NEW CONTEST.

That's about it for now - I hope you enjoy this as well as future issues of - The Tarnished Truth.

Gotcha didn't I ! (grin ) These coins were all struck at Philadelphia and thus have no mint marks.
