“We are grateful for the continued commitment of PNG to the ANA’s
educational programs,” said ANA Seminar Manager Amber L. Bradish. “As
a result of their support, a young numismatist will be able to
experience the finest numismatic education available while attending
the 2018 ANA Summer Seminar. This investment in the growth of our YN’s
and our hobby helps to ensure the continued availability of ANA
educational opportunities throughout the country.”
“The money to pay for the annual PNG YN Scholarship is administered
from the PNG’s Gerald Bauman Memorial Fund. Bauman, who died in 2001,
served for many years as a prominent coin dealer with Manfra, Tordella
& Brookes in New York City,” explained PNG President Barry Stuppler.
The PNG is a nonprofit organization composed of many of the top rare
coin and paper money dealers in the United States and four other
countries. PNG member-dealers must adhere to a strict Code of Ethics
in the buying and selling of numismatic merchandise. For additional
