The exceptional writers who contribute to your club newsletter, The Cincinnati Numismatist, have once again collectively taken first place in the American Numismatic Association’s annual Outstanding Club Publications contest. Your editor was on hand in Chicago to accept the award on behalf of the club.

A new award has been created to recognize the work of authors writing for this publication. The first Gene Hessler Literary Awards (2020 & 2021) will be presented to the winning authors at our Christmas Dinner Meeting and Children’s Charity Auction on December 9th.
