Thanks for the strong interest in the JRCS interview project. Here is some additional information:
Interviews are planned for next week at the following times:
Monday - during the PNG show
Wednesday – right after the JRCS Meeting in room 21
Wednesday – right after the Bust Quarter meeting in room 22
If you are not available during one of these times but would like to participate, please let me know so we can try to set up an alternate time. If you are unable to interview at the ANA show but would still like to participate, there will also be an opportunity to interview at the November Baltimore Whitman show.
As Brad Karoleff mentioned in last week's JR Newsletter, these will be low-key informal discussions of your collecting experiences and involvement in the JRCS that will be recorded to preserve our history for future generations. Interviews will be videotaped unless you would prefer an audio-only interview. These interviews are only intended for the JRCS archives. However, if the JRCS is interested in posting excerpts of your interview on the JRCS website, you will be contacted.
All interviewees will be asked the same first question: When did you start collecting coins and how did your interest in collecting Early U.S. silver/gold coins evolve?
After that, the interviewee can discuss whatever they would like. I have been asked for examples of possible questions/topics to give interviewees some ideas. These can be found at the link below and are broken down into three general categories: Coins, Friendship, and Education.
Thanks, and I look forward to seeing many JRCS members in Chicago,

A quick bit of info regarding the fast-approaching ANA World's Fair of Money in Rosemont, IL:
Monday Aug 12 is PNG Day, and the entire DKRC staff (that's me and Melissa) will be on hand at table 1012 to serve your needs.
Starting Tuesday, we'll be at corner table 1626, setup right next to great friend and supreme collector's dealer Brian Greer (1628), and backing directly to John Agre of Coin Rarities Online. Thus, Melissa and I will be in pretty darn good company. Please see us early and often! We'd love to sell you something special, but even more so, we'd love to buy something special from you!
Please don't forget David Finkelstein's very interesting Money Talks presentation, which is scheduled for Friday the 16th at 11AM, in room number 6.
See you all soon, and please travel safely.
